CAST Covid-19 Event Policy and Procedures

The CAST for Kids Foundation will be holding all 2020 events in compliance with CDC, National, State and local guidelines for Covid-19.  We will be following these guidelines for the safety, health and well-being of our participants, families, volunteers and staff.  If we can hold an event according to state guidelines, as states phase in their re-opening, we will. However, our events may look different than they have in the past. Lunch and awards may be broken into separate groups to enhance social distancing. At a minimum, we will be implementing 6’ social distancing guidelines and the use of protective measures like masks and hand sanitizers.  We are confident we have figured out how to provide a safe, relaxing, fun environment for everyone to enjoy at CAST for Kids events in 2020! However, it will be impossible to guarantee the safety of all CAST participants and volunteers. Please consider each of your individual risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic when making your decision to attend any CAST event.

2018 Event Recap

Saturday, August 18 brought 28 Children and 20 Boat captains together for yet another amazing C.A.S.T. For Kids at Black Canyon reservoir in Emmett Idaho. The weather was chamber of Commerce perfect for all of those who attended. Chris and Stacey Rambough took over the coordination of this event for 2018. They picked up right where long time coordinator Erica Lopez left off. Super organized, well run event which showered the children with love. It took 2 adult men to read-and  get through the emotional letter that Erica left for us to read to the children and families in her absence. Erica Lopez……. much respect and admiration to you. Many of the children had very successful days fishing. Small-mouth bass and yellow perch seemed to be the majority of the catches. Another interesting observation was that it seemed almost every girl participant caught fish, while the men and boys struggled. GIRL POWER! We are ready for 2019. Third Saturday of August. Be there or be square!
