Deadline Approaching!
The Ike Foundation® College Scholarship Opportunity for Young Anglers

Pittsgrove, NJ, March 21, 2019.  The Ike Foundation® is a non-profit organization founded by Mike and Becky Iaconelli. The mission of the Foundation is to introduce urban and rural children to the wholesome sport of fishing while instilling in them a love and respect for the outdoors. The Ike Foundation® Scholarship Fund provides five college scholarships to deserving high school seniors who share The Ike Foundation’s® mission and meet academic and mission-based criteria.
 
The 2019 Ike Foundation® Scholarship Dinner raised over $17,000 this year, with help from the local community and sponsors as well as generous support from the fishing community and corporate sponsors.
 Scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors pursuing full-time enrollment in a 2-year or 4-year college or university in the United States. Awards are based on academic achievement, demonstrated volunteer commitment (preferably in the fishing or conservation world), and a personal statement of how fishing has impacted their life and prepared them for college. Deadline has been extended as students may be waiting for college acceptance letters. Completed and submitted application materials must be postmarked or submitted online before April 5, 2019.
 
The Foundation’s Scholarship Committee conducts a blind review of all applications to determine the final award. Trustees score submissions using a pre-defined point system. Scholarship awards may be applied to tuition, fees, supplies, books, or equipment. All interested applicants should go to https://theikefoundation.org/2019-scholarship-application.
 
The Ike Foundation® hosts and sponsors several fundraising events per year. All proceeds support the mission and are tax-deductible via a credit card contribution on the website https://theikefoundation.org/donate.
 
Follow The Ike Foundation® @TheIkeFoundation on Facebook, on Twitter @FoundationIke and Instagram @theikefoundation.
 
The Ike Foundation® appreciates the generous donations from individuals and corporate sponsors, including Bass Cat Boats, Toyota, Yamaha Outboard Motors, Hobie, Abu Garcia, Flambeau, Rapala, RAM Mounts®, Sawyer and more.  A full list of sponsors can be found at https://theikefoundation.org/sponsors.

Not a day goes by that I dont wish I could do more fishing and get back into the site full time, full speed ahead. I think one day it will happen. That is my goal. It may take a lot of effort to get it active again but I will be up to the task when its time.

As it is now, my boat hasnt been in the water since fall of 2015. It wont start anymore. I assume its just crud in the lines/carbs. Once this law suit of ours is over (which may be April 9th as we are going to mediation then) I will be able to get it fixed and running again...  tho that still does not mean I can get out fishing with it yet.
Moms been doing a bit better lately.  Dementia/Alzheimers has a firm grip on her. She cant speak other than a few words here and there and its usually a surprise when that happens. Ever since teh EMTs broke her hip in Nov 2017 she has not walked. She will never walk again unfortunately. Despite all  that, I can still get her to smile and laugh and to me thats what matters most.

I think if we can get past this law suit and I get the money to put some more assets in place for Mom, things will look a bit better and I may even be able to get out, at least on the local lake, to do some fishing.  Hell about now I would settle for a blow up raft in a pond so my boat in the 5000 acres Lake Robinson would be heaven. Santee Cooper, Cooper River, Wateree and Lake Murray will have to wait.

I keep thinking that even though I am not fishing, there are things i can do on the site... but then part of me feels like I would be a hypocrite talking about fishing and trying to write articles and posts with advice when I haven't wet a link in about a year.

If I can find the time, I still have all the pros (from A - Z) phones numbers and I often think about calling them up to interview and get content for us.

I guess what it all boils down to is that, my dreams and goals for this site still remain alive and one day will once again be given the focus it deserves.

I thank all of you who still visit regularly. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

and PS i cant help but think lately, if all the politics and divisiveness on Facebook keeps up, people may once again realize the value of a moderated and well maintained forum once again. A guy can hope right?

I agree Jigfishin10. I see Jared posting on Face Book at times. He's having a tough time taking care of his Mom and his own health too. When he sold the old site and moved to NY. He started this site and after awhile it slowed down to just us few. I keep hopeing the rest of the gang will show up. I have seen a couple of them from time to time. I have seen some of the gang on Face Book too. 
Don't know what to say.

We're getting into a new fishing season and on 3 members are active on this site. I wish there was a way to get word out to our membership, it'd be nice to share our stories and experiences with one another.
