2nd Annual River Rats Get Together

Postby Vern Metcalf Jr » Fri Apr 14, 2017 1:38 pm

After the beginning stages of planning, venue's found etc I have decided to Cancel the 2nd Annual River Rats Riverside Get Together.

In February my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer which will leave me no time to continue with sponsor contact or the rest of all that is involved in planning such an event. She has gone through the Chemo stage and now faces surgery which will take place in May then following recovery from that she will have to undergo radiation as there is some cancer in her lymph nodes.

I don't forsee this event taking place anytime soon unless someone else steps forward to do the majority of the work, which knowing the River Rats Group I do not see happening. So, depending on her prognosis, it is possible the event may not take place until late 2018 or early 2019.

All I ask is that you keep her and my family in your thoughts and prayers..

Thank you.
