Fly-Carpin Tshirts for Carp Slam 7 Fundraiser


As you may or may not know the CarpSlam Tournament is not just for fun.  Denver Trout Unlimited (DTU) uses the proceeds from the tourney to benefit restoration of the Urban South Platte River.  And those are not just fancy words.  Per the CarpSlam 7 brochure tournament funds have already been put to excellent use:
  • $11,000 to South Platte Surburban Parks and Recreation District Project 
  • $14,000 to Overland Park Pond Restoration 
  • $25,000 to River South Project
Now, as you already know I love the carp in this river but I have also come to love the river itself.  Along with many of the other competitors I have agreed to help raise some funds on my own.  This year I decided to get a little creative and made up some special T-shirts and sell them for the Slam.  The shirts are now on sale on Ebay (ranging from 18 to 21 dollars plus shipping by size) and the proceeds from any shirts sold before the Slam will be donated to DTU.


If you are simply in the giving mood feel free to go to my competitors page at carpslam.org and donate directly to the CarpSlam in my name. 

Here is the logo that is on the back of the Tshirt:
