    ALSO- I wanted to remind everyone that those who have *YES!* next to them have been so generous to have agreed to donate towards our event. If at all possible, lets try to return this generousity when looking for their products! It really helps as we are contacting in the future years for them to remember our sales![] THANK YOU!

    Thank you all again for your help. If you would like to just email me or post on here who you contact (whether they commit ornot- so we dont duplicate!) This is where we will keep up with it! Thank you again!!! It sure helps to have some of you who buy from these companies to address them personally because they recognize a sale from it, rather than just a random girl calling!

    Side note-

    Below are a list of some who I have listed as possible contacts from the previous year (not ones who necessarily donated):

      I missed my email that Brando was going to get Seasnell Marine- is that the same as Seasnell fabrication? I think tim just filled out a online form for Lowrance- so if you have connections- by all means go for it. Thank you!!

            What are you guys lookng for in donations? Goodies for captains bags? Buckets? Money?

            I've got a few vendors I could call. Just need to know what to be looking for. Or should I just forward their contact and let the silver tounges do the tree shake'n

              Amy sent me the following

              We typically will accept any donation. In the past, most everything has been items Donated for either the raffle at the banquet or small items to go in captains bags! (Anything from brochures, sunscreen, Huggies, bottle openers, keychains, etc. I have attached the donation letter and flyer I have been using to send in when emailing the companies. The letter explains how we put the logo of the company on the funament shirt and a banner

                Matt, if you know and deal with them personally, that normally will have best results. If you do get a conformation just send it to [email protected] and Amy will get it logged and get company logo for shirts and banner.

                    I thought this morning that i can contact a magazine publisher such as saltwater sportsmen and invite them to attend the event and take pictures. Thoughts? Ideas? Other publisher suggestions? Potential more exposure for sponsors or at least a selling point on why to sponsor.

                      I dont know how to go about asking, but I bet Birdsall Marine would do a little donating, maybe one of their steering wheels or some of the CC accessories. I know back in my fraternity days we always had to send in a not on letterhead to get donations. Just worth a try or i'll be glad to contact them if theres a formal letter or something. Also-theres a few local tackle shops around destin, Half Hitch Tackle, some of the dive shops, maybe even one of the house rental companies..

                        Great idea, saltwater sportsman seems to be most common to me.

                        Never thought about asking birdsall even though I have a t-top and leaning post of there's. I know we tried half hitch last year but wasn't able to get them on board.
