Happy Saturday!
Monday, September 25, 2023 will be the start of the 2nd Annual Lake of the Ozarks Got Your Six  Fishing Tournament. Not just anyone can be in this tournament, it is limited to Veterans only.  This year they have 11 Veterans participating and they hope to grow next year to the max of 20.  My husband is the Post Commander of Al Whitaker VFW Post 6514, Osage Beach, Missouri, and works closely with the Got Your Six program. The tournament runs for four days and the Veterans have a great time fishing on Lake of the Ozarks. The organization recruits fishing guides to take on the job of Captains, for each Veteran. They know the best fishing spots to hopefully catch the biggest fish. This time gives the Veterans a chance to relax and have fun.

The organization, Got Your Six secured donations from area businesses to sponser this four day event. A local resort is donating the accomadations, a grocery store in the area is donating all the food. This event is totally Free to the Veterans. This is just one way our community honors those who have served.

I  wanted to do my part to say thanks to the Veterans and welcome them to the Lake of the Ozaks, so I did what I do best, make cards for them. I also wanted to recognize the Sponsers and Captains so they will also receive a homemade card. I used the Gone Fishing stamps with the matching Designer Series Paper. The process of making the cards didn't take longe once all the cardstock and DSP was cut. I hope these cards will bring a smile to those who receive them.

If you, or anyone you know is a Veteran who likes to fish, I invite you to contact me and I will share the information with my husband so they can participate in 2024.
