BFC & HC have suspended our advertising for a day of respect for these two boys lost at this year's Toughman tournament..
ALWAYS be careful out there everyone. Nothing as good as being on the water - cept maybe coming home each time.

What happened

[B]Very sorry to hear about this. It should serve as a reminder to all of us that our outdoor pursuits do carry some risk. When we head out to the woods and waters, we owe it to our loved ones to be as safe as possible. :pray:[/B]

A member of BFC and his team capsized their boat Saturday night. He and his brother were rescued from the water. 2 other members of his team were not. They both drowned, one pinned under the boat.

Both boys that drowned were 22, & 23. One leaves a 3 month old girl behind.

The family is not sure how they will fund funeral arrangements and a fund has been created.

Sad state of affairs as we have all been in iffy situations at night on the water.
They died on Easter morning in 46 degree water.

I just posted this on my facebook.

Just made a sizable donation. Nothing seems adequate though :-( Especially when you read about donations for the little girl.

[COLOR=#333333][FONT=lucida grande]As most of you know there was a tragic accident this weekend at a bowfishing tournament in Indiana. Team Night Reapers boat capsized. Two of them made it back to land and the other two were found the next day in the water. These boys were in their early 20s and taken way too young. Ryan had a 3 month old baby boy and was getting married next year. Matt was a joker and they both loved bowfishing. Someone has contacted both of their families and have let them know that they hav[/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=#333333][FONT=lucida grande]e a huge bowfishing community praying for them.

Any suggestions ?
