Jim Carroll, long time Pro Fisherman and fishing seminar speaker is fighting a battle with cancer. Recently Jim did a week of tests at Mayo Clinic and he has started treatment, including Chemo and Radiation. He has a rare form of cancer and knows this is just the beginning of his journey. He is tough and has vowed to "fight like hell and ring the bell." He has temporarily moved to Rochester, MN (Mayo) to be closer to his doctors and the treatments he is taking daily. We wish Jim all the best with his treatment.
On May 10th, the National Walleye Tour will be in Garrison, ND - Jim's home waters. Although Jim will not be there in person, we will all be thinking of him. There will be a fundraiser at the rules meeting to help with some of his medical expenses. Professional anglers and co-anglers in attendance will have the opportunity to bid on a variety of items, including gift cards, rods, reels, and much more. There will also be raffles and T-Shirts with special "JC Ring The Bell" printing on the back. So, bring some extra money to the NWT registration/rules meeting and help Jim out!
Anyone wishing to donate an item for the auctions can send it to the following person or drop it off in Garrison. The addresses are below. If you are going to donate items, please email Dennis or Keith ahead of time so your items can be added to a list.
If you would like to make donations to help out with medical expenses mail them to Dennis (address below). Paypal is another good option, under Paypal put the recipient as You can make donations in Paypal from another Paypal account or via a credit card.
Thanks for your support for one of our fellow anglers - and Ring The Bell Jim.
