Event description

Description

This year Picatinny Arsenal has implemented a strict access policy we must submit all event participants 7 business days before the event. So if you think you may attend please sign up ASAP, better to sign up now and cancel then sign up after the deadline. You will notified with details via email.

Thank you



Veterans are coming from VA Hospital only. No veteran tickets are available for this event.

This event will be for the patients from the Hospice/Long Term Care groups with many of them fishing from wheelchairs. These groups will need more one on one assistance than the ambulatory patients. Most of the participants will be fishing from shore. There is a chance that a few may want to fish from a kayak but the the majority will be fishing from land. You do not have to bring a kayak and you are welcome to use the HOW kayaks.

Our Mid-week events start a little later and usually are shorter in duration than our regular weekend events.

Volunteers need to arrive by 9am. The event starts at 10am. We are usually wrapped up before 3pm.

Volunteers should arrive by 9:00 AM for set up.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT FOOD: Volunteers need to provide their own lunch. Breakfast bagels, donuts and coffee will be provided for morning set up. Water and Gatorade will be available for volunteers and participants.

Event should wrap up by 3PM
