TornadoFrom the Tackle The Storm: Joplin event...not sure I need to add anything more to this message...not sure I can add anything more to it:

"It was an awesome experience.  We were on Fox 14, KODE, and KSN.  We gave away everything!  Tackle the Storm Foundation, the Joplin Backlashers and the Kansas City Junior Bassmasters touched a lot of lives!" - Braden McBride Director, Joplin Backlashers Bass Club

400 young anglers who lost everything to the tornado, showed up, and while we couldn't give them everything back, we could give them back the magic wand of childhood...a fishing pole. Doesn't sound like much...a fishing pole...a bunch of fishing stuff...but for a child who loves to fish, but lost all of the ability to do so, now, at least, they can escape to the peace of a pond, the bank of a river, the gentle rocking of a boat, and for just awhile, escape all the destruction and sadness around them. Thank you to all of you who have given these children back just a little slice of normal life amidst the chaos.
