2018 Event Recap

We were blessed to have a beautiful, sunny day for our event. Our families began registering at 12 pm and the tournament officially began at 12:30. Each participant received a fishing pole, tacklebox, bait, t-shirt and lots more fishing swag. The participants and their families fished along the shore until 3:30. While fishing, families enjoyed cotton candy, popcorn, and drinks. They listened to their music requests from the DJ and were entertained with the stiltwalkers and monkey. Each family listened for their doorprize number to be called for prizes ranging from a free pizza to $50 grocery gift cards. At 3:30, all of the volunteers and participants ate hamburgers, hotdogs and pizza. At 4 pm we announced the winners for the most fish caught and the biggest weight caught. Each participant also received their own plaque with picture.
