Hi everyone. We need the help of the mighty TFF Family. William Hitchcock (Hitch here on TFF) is Lora's brother in law. She is his wife's sister. Here is her story.



On May 17th 2015, Lora Edelhouser was involved in a 4 wheeler accident when she collided with a pack of feral hogs. She suffered a traumatic brain injury that has left her completely disabled. Lora is a flight attendant with Southwest Airlines. Her insurance will end on September 8th, and proceeds from this benefit will help the family meet the financial burden of Lora’s long term care. So we are going to do what we fisherman do best. Put on a tournament to try and raise some money to help someone in need. Here are the tournament particulars.

• When: Saturday October 31st
• Where: Lake Fork - Lake Fork Marina
• Time: 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM (You can weigh in any time during the day if you have to leave early)
• Registration: 5:30 AM - 8:00 AM
• Entry Fee: $100.00 per boat – 2 person maximum - $10.00 optional big bass side pot
• This is a trailering event. Register at LFM and you can trailer and launch at a ramp of your choice


Here is how this is going to work. Hitch has been working hard to get the donations of some of the best Guides on Lake Fork. He has recruited 10 Guides so far. There will be no cash payouts. If you finish in the top ten, you win a Guide Trip to Lake Fork. First place gets first choice of the guide and on down the line. Some of the Guides are offering hunting trips as well if you would prefer. Here is a list of the Guides so far. Mark Pack, James Caldemeyer, Billy Lawson, Mark Watson, Eric Wright, Zach Hughes, Randy Simmons, Mike McFarland, Sam Cotton and Jay Kendrick. If we get more trips donated, the payout list will grow longer. Big Bass is an optional $10.00 side pot. That will be a 50/50 split. Half goes to the winner, half to the family. Kids are welcome to fish we will have prizes for the top 5 ages 6-15. My guys from the RHBC will be running the weigh in. We will have a crew there all day.

You will have opportunities to win donated prizes by donating to the family. Prizes include a Deer stand, Tackle Warehouse gift cards, 3 tickets to the NASCAR race in November, prize packs from Santone Lures, a CHL class, Kistler Rods, TFO Rods, Papa’s Baits, Harper’s Custom Tackle Pack, Talon Lures, ProRule, and Kicker Fish Baits. There is also a Yeti Cooler available.

This is going to be a great day! The weather is normally great that time of year, and the fish should be eating. Please come out and join us for this great cause. I'm sure Hitch will be chiming in here soon with addition contributions. If you would like to contribute something, please contact myself or Hitch. Here is the contact info.

William Hitchcock • 469-307-6950 or whitchcock@henkels.com
Tom Brouillette • tomnali2@sbcglobal.net

Or send a PM to myself or Hitch. If you would like a digital copy of the flyer, we will e-mail it to you.

If you cannot be there that day, you can make donations directly to the family and you can follow Lora’s journey here

Lots of good prizes guys! I wanted to mention that we will be doing registration inside Tiffany s in the patio room to the left when you walk in. We will start at 5:30 AM just after they open. I will keep registration open until 8:00AM past first cast in case you are running late. Once registered you can launch your boat from any ramp you like. First cast is at 7:00AM and not before. Last cast will be at 3:00. The scales will open at 2:30PM and you must be in line to weigh in by 4:000. E-mail or PM me with any questions!

If my boat is ready on time I am in on this. If not, is there a way to make a donation to the family?

I have a set of h2 scales with a double digital display.
If you need a set of scales you are welcome to use them for the event.
They are certified and legal for trade.
And waterproof.
If you have a good set then disregard.

I was unable to get the Lora's story link to work. Logged into TFF on my tablet but will try another way. Will see what my family can do and looking forward to what TFF people can do for this cause.

Well, it appears the link to Lora's story is being blocked by TFF because it is a funding page. PM me fpr the link or I can e-mail you a flyer. In the mean time, I will get with the mods here and see if we can get the link unblocked. PM sent kcb

www.go fund me.com/iflywithlora

Copy and paste and take out the spaces I put in.
