I’m Steve Payne, a business executive and retired NHL player that spent 10 years with the MN North Stars (now the Dallas Stars). Supporting our military is very important to me, so I spend a lot of time doing so. With help from some generous, caring friends, I created the Battle at Boxwood event now in it’s seventh year. The event supports the wonderful organization, Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF), by raising money and getting recovering wounded warriors on the water for a day of trout fishing with sports celebrities from the NHL, NFL and MLB. It takes place each year at the Boxwood Gulch Ranch in Shawnee, CO, which is owned/operated by Dan & Karen Mauritz.
