Default Costa Rican Vacation Fishing Giveaway

I would like to take a page out of Mexicoís book and offer up a little getaway for our countryís veterans.
I have debated just including the house for the families use and we may do that the next go round.
I decided more vets could be included by keeping it as the vet alone.
With that being said the trip can include up to three people.
All details can be worked out after the drawing is held.
I will cover the house, vehicle and an offshore charter.
I think the time will be around December-March as that is the prime time.
We will chase billfish, mahi, tuna etc.

Rules are fairly simple.

Post your name and branch on this thread. Dates served would be good as well.
Drawing will be held on 5/1/19.
Go to our Facebook page LaRosaAmarilla and give us a like and I will enter your name twice.
Winners will be responsible for plane ticket to San Jose, Costa Rica.

If anyone would like to be a part of this let me know. I am truly excited and I get sea sick as bad as anyone. I have been wanting to do this for a long time to show the appreciation and gratitude that is deserved.

Pm any questions. I will add a few pics along the way.

Thanks guys. I got you all down.
Had a few questions about flights. They are around 600-700 out of Houston right now.
That’s higher than normal. But that may be the new normal now.

Wonderful offer- put my name in there please!

Army- Aircraft hydraulics and then into EOD- 82-86.

Dad was a pilot and Vietnam Veteran- shot down in North Vietnam- fortunately recovered the following day. Son was Army Special Forces for 9 years with two deployments to Iraq, one to Jordan, and probably some things he'll never tell me about. I was the lucky one, peacetime only under President Reagan.

Thanks for what you're doing.

Friendly Bump with an even better update.
I have been able to work with a few companies (& tbh members) in the area and have gotten a little sponsorship.
With this help all flights will be covered now out of Houston.
Thanks to everyone thus far.
