    Reel Recovery - our new Hunting retreat!! come see us at this year’s Sika Show (B27)

    Reel recovery - our new Hunting retreat!! come see us at this year’s Sika Show (Booth 27)


    Hi All,

    For some years now and throughout our Toby’s illness, and subsequent passing. I’ve been plotting among other things on how to build a Hunting equivalent retreat based on what we do in our very successful Reel Recovery, Fishing retreats.

    Now Thanks to Lindsay and Hamish, and in conjunction with Muddy Waters Hunting NZ we now have planning and fundraising underway for an initial 6-person retreat to a 1600 hectare private hunting block, in the area north of Wanganui planned for 2018.

    I can’t thank these guys enough for getting on board and providing us a safe venue and the ability to take 6 guys who are either battling or survivors of Cancer into an retreat environment Where the activities being hunting based.

    Having hunted here before, its well set up and have seen literally hundreds of Fallow Deer here over the course of a weekend (even shot a few!! Eh @Happy).

    So... If you are in or around at the Sika Show this weekend.

    Stop by.... find out more...or just have a yarn with us and support this most worthy cause.
    (This year Reel Recovery NZ is the Sika Shows’ own charity of Choice! - and we are very humbled to have been selected for this)

    As a current Reel Recovery board member, I’m also very proud that we’ve been able to do this as part of NZ organisation and provide a vital and unique service to guy’s battling Cancer here in NZ -To provide a weekend away from the stresses and strains of their everyday battle.

    Just to front foot a question that I’m always asked… and perhaps give you a bit of added insight of how we work

    As an entirely Voluntary organisation all our fundraising and revenues go into putting on the retreats for the guys, so every dollar donated, or raffle ticket sold - goes to them!

    All the guys need to pay for is getting to our retreat and getting home.
    We feed, water, guide and care for them whilst they are with us over the weekend retreat.

    So, Pop in and see us – I could say look for the bearded buggers (as I think most of us currently are) in the green shirts for a chat or perhaps lend us a word of support.

    Talk soon!
    Kia Mate Toa

    Paul.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Thanks guys - humbled as always by your support ...

    We'll have the donate function on the Website working tomorrow I'm told! If you put to the hunting retreat in the details section on the donation form itself I'll make personally sure it goes alongside the fundraising for this specific retreat.

    I'll post on here when its up and running!

    Also we are a registered charity and can provide receipts for this based on our charity registration number for you - if requested, we're happy to help...

    Thanks Guys
    Paul.

    Hey Guys!

    Just wanted to thank all those who stopped by the stand at the Sika Show and allowed us to bend their ear, and cadge a few dollars from you all for the Raffle we were running and some wonderful individual donations.

    The upshot is we were able to relieve you all of a couple of grand towards the costs of our next Hunting and Fishing retreats for 2018.

    For those of you who missed out on my pitch take a wander over to Reel Recovery
    and leave us a donation there, if you want you can have a raffle ticket too send to you (image or irl) for our upcoming drawn at the beginning of December!

    First prize is a guided day with Brian from Brian's fishing Guides (Value $650.00) http://www.bfg-nz.com
    second a Neil Hirtzel handbuilt Salt water fly rod (Value $500) Trout Scout - New Zealand Fly Fishing with Neil Hirtzel
    third (and the one most guys wanted to win at the Show ) A spectacular piece of glass art worth ($450) http://http://www.glassartnz.co.nz/g...ishing-gallery

    We'd also Like to call out to Wayne at G&W imports and home of the UFO cooker http://ufocooker.co.nz
    And Steve McGuire from SouthFort labs for providing us a Carbon Composite Stock for a T3. http://https://www.southfortlabs.co.nz/stock-models/


    Both of these will be part of future fundraising we do going forward!!

    Thanks to you all !!!

    Paul.
