Randy was doing an odd job when a accident occurred leaving him with a double compound fracture in his right leg and a broken heel on his left leg. Bones is Randy's nickname and is what most people know him by. He was layed off from work October of last year. Unfortunately bones has no insurance and now that he's plagued with at least 8 months of rehabilitation and from what the doctor is saying at least six surgeries. A benefit tournament for bones will be held Saturday July 11th at Buzzard Beach on the Harris Chain of Lakes. A $100 entry-fee will be split at 50 percent for the payback of 1 place for every 7 boats. A complimentary fish-fry will accompany the entry-fee after the weigh-in along with raffle items. If you are unable to attend the tournament but would like to make a donation, Brookers Bait and Tackle in Leesburg is accepting those or you may send it to 40827 W. 6th Ave. Umatilla, Fl 32784. Any amount would greatly be appreciated. I have been Randy's tournament partner for 15 years he's a good fishing partner, a great friend, and a person who ALWAYS brings a laugh and smile to whatever he's doing. This is a call-out to the bass tournament community, please come out and support a fellow fishermen that needs a little support in a time of need. Thanks, Vernon Kemp
