This event will lead to the 2021 Warriors Weekend celebration that will happen from May 21st-23rd. For fifteen years, Warrior's Weekend has been assisting combat-wounded veterans with a relaxing water therapy weekend in Port O'Connor. About 300 combat wounded OIF/OEF while 300 transport themselves by private vehicle and another 100 Pre 9-11 are also included.
The weekend is filled with a good ole South Texas Welcome with all the surrounding towns waiving on the streets, shutting down highways, waving big flags, and showing appreciation for what we all hold dear - OUR FREEDOM! It is truly an awesome sight to see a convey of hero's driving down the street.
Friday night there is a fish fry including our boat captions, Saturday morning a yummy taco and fruit breakfast as the heroes hit the water about 8:30 am on approximately 300 boats. Weigh-in is from 12:30 - 3:30 pm down at Froggies Bait Dock. Saturday night is the BBQ dinner with awards and poker tournament. Sunday morning a full-fledged breakfast at 8 am and a big SEND OFF to our heroes.
