2017 Event Recap

April 15, 2017 proved to be an excellent day to hold our second annual Lake Murray Oklahoma Cast For Kids event. The weather was near perfect. Volunteers begin arriving around 7:30 AM, while children arrive between eight and 8:45 AM. The children alternated between bank fishing with live worms, and hotdogs, while also going out for boat rides to experience what may have been the very first trip in a boat.  24 children experienced the morning fishing and an Easter egg hunt right before we enjoyed a delicious lunch provided by the Cottonpatch Café in Ardmore Oklahoma. Numerous fish were caught including smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, carp, and believe it or not even a turtle!

Special thanks go out to Susie and Greg Snider brought their sound system down from the Lake Norman area so that the award ceremony was made that much more special. We made some excellent contacts with the Oklahoma parks department and are certain to have an even bigger and better event in 2018. The event date for 2018 is already been selected. March 31, 2018. See everyone next year!
