G'day Andrew. I'd like to do my bit for the cause as well. Just noticed this thread. I too am a current serving member of the defence force (about to clock over 27 years in the RAAF). Also good mates with Jimmy2M. (G'day Troy).
I usually have a spare yak sitting in the shed and know some great Bassin spots west of Brissy. Happy to help when I get a spare bit of time to scratch.
Cheers, Beetle.

Guys and Girls after many months in the planning we have of today successfully registered as an Incorporation.

its a huge step forward for Heroes on the Water Australia which now opens doors of recognition by the Defence Forces putting us another step closer to helping and sharing our sport of Kayak fishing with our wounded Warriors.

We currently have over 60 volunteers Australia wide and the support of some big hitters from within the kayak industry.

we have planned for 3 major chapters in Australia. 1. Victoria 2. Queensland 3. NSW hopefully in time we will be out there in every state trying to make a difference.

Our plan is simple we aim for the triple therapy of Kayak fishing . 1 Physical with paddling, Pedalling and fishing 2. Occupational with learning some new skills and a sport for life and 3. Mental from relaxing benefits of being on the Water and in a different place.

check out our website at www.HowAus.org for more info or directly to our Newsletter
http://www.howaus.org/home_7.htm

for those of you on Facebook the biggest help we can get from you is if you 'Like Us' on Facebook and share our story with your friends so we can get the word out further. Facebook link. www.Facebook.com/heroesonthewateraustralia

thanks heaps to the HQ team Kevin - Victoria, Bevan - Victoria , Robert - Victoria and Ian - Far north Queensland.

Thanks heaps

Andrew
