At first, there seemed to be no side effects, in the first month I lost 5 pounds. But when taking buy Xenical, which I got from “buy xenicallab.com”, you necessarily have to adhere to a low-calorie diet, go in for sport and then you will lose more weight.v

Future Fisherman Foundation and Lew’s Tackle Company Issue 100th High School Grant of 2018 Season

Future Fisherman Foundation and Lew’s Tackle Company

Issue 100th High School Grant of 2018 Season

(July 24th 2018) The Future Fisherman Foundation (F3), a 501C3 Non-Profit and the Lew’s Tackle Company recently celebrated the important milestone of having issued it’s 100th High School Grant of the season last week at ICAST. The worlds largest fishing trade show showcased High School Fishing on the final of the show by inviting hundreds of High School Fishing teams to the event for the first time. During that day of celebration, Lew’s and F3 took the time to savor their programs success with Head coach Jason Foss and team members Dylan Westhelle and Joey Bloom from Oviedo High School and the Seminole County Fishing team.

“Our fishing team started with students at Oviedo High School and has now blossomed into the Seminole County Bass Fishing team” stated Foss. “Getting an opportunity to participate in the Lew’s Grant program has really helped our team grow as we use the Lew’s products as prizes and raffle items at our charity tournament that we run every year. Being able to either raffle or auction off these items allows us to raise money to help cover our travel expenses to events like the High School World Finals and the High School National Championship. It also helps us if we have a student who is in need of top quality equipment but can’t afford it on their own. We can’t thank Lew’s enough for helping teams like ours continue to grow the sport of High School Fishing” added Foss.

Both Westhelle and Bloom, who are both juniors at the club, also stated that the Lew’s Speed Spool reels are part of their equipment arsenal that helped this team become champions of this rapidly growing club that now supports 16 two-person teams.

“The Future Fisherman Foundation is proud to partner with Lew’s on this terrific program” stated F3 Executive Director Mark Gintert. “The intent of this program was to help High School teams grow the sport of High School fishing by rewarding those groups that are trying to make a difference in their communities. Getting students off the couch and back into the great outdoors has always been one of our goals at F3 and being able to partner with a great company like Lew’s to help accomplish that goal is very rewarding for us” added Gintert.

The Lew’s High School grant program runs annually from January 1st to September 30th and awards teams one of three grant levels depending on their team size and other factors that make up the grant application. Teams can apply by going to futurefisherman.org or Lews.com.

Future Fisherman Foundation and Zebco Renew
Tackle for Educators Program for 2018-2019

(June 20th 2018): Zebco Brands and the Future Fisherman Foundation (F3) have renewed their agreement to continue the very popular “Tackle for Educators” program launched last year as part of both companies R3 efforts to Recruit, Retain and Reactivate anglers across the country.

The packages range from basic spincast combos to the ultra-durable Advanced Educator kit which utilizes the legendary Zebco 33 that is built to withstand thousands of hours of use and abuse. There is literally something for everyone within these four packages and the best part of all is they are available at a substantially reduced price!

“We are absolutely thrilled to be renewing our agreement with Zebco so that we can keep the tremendous momentum that we have started with this program” stated F3 Executive Director Mark Gintert. “Zebco, like every other business in the fishing industry, is facing increased cost of materials, production and transportation but in the face of that they went above and beyond to minimize the impact to Educators and continue to offer incredible value.” offered Gintert. “We couldn’t be happier with the success of the program as well as the cooperation between the two organizations!”

Steve Smits, President of Zebco Brands remarked, “Zebco is committed to growing fishing participation and the Future Fisherman Foundation is a wonderful partner, helping us provide affordable access to the tools educators need to grow our sport!”

Interested parties can go to Futurefisherman.org and click on the “Tackle for Educators” tab to see the four packages as well as the unbeatable pricing for each.
