Subject: Thank You for Supporting BADF in 2003
We want to thank everyone for supporting BADF in 2003. It is touching how many of you care about your fellow man and other disabled hunters, and the way in which you have reached out this past year. Godís hand has been so evident in the good things that have occurred, He is surely with us all. The New York Post recently published an article about the lives some of you have touched though our email communication channels. Remember, these are just a few instances of the many heartwarming stories from 2003. You can see the article at http://www.nypost.com/sports/4791.htm
As we enter this New Year, BADF is already in the progress of making changes and planning for programs that will allow us to reach even more people in 2004. You will be informed of these modifications and additions as they come about. A key emphasis in 2004 is going to be our Special Partners Program. Our I.T. people are already designing a web interface for this program, which will aid in pairing hunting partners, and match challenged hunters with people who have opportunities available.
I especially want to thank everyone who has assisted us with hunts over the past year. Your help and commitment has been overwhelming. Our hunt coordinators William Davis, Cam Tribolet, George Bolender and Mike Schmitz have done a great job and need to be commended for their service and friendship. In addition, the support provided by our title sponsor Streamlight has made a huge impact on peopleís lives providing adaptive equipment, hunt scholarships, and Life Hunts.
Please have a safe and happy New Year! God bless you all.
