2018 Event Recap:

The 20th annual CAST for Kids at Hagg Lake was the best event ever held here. All 39 kids caught fish! The weather was perfect, no wind, a low of 55 and a high of 72 with sunshine. There were tons of boaters and shore volunteers to make the event run smoothly. The awards was the best part as always!

2017 Event Recap:

Beautiful sunny skies and calm conditions greeted 40 participants and their families as they arrived at Hagg Lake for the 18th annual Hagg Lake CAST for Kids.  Only 1 child failed to catch a fish, and many reported stellar fish catches.  Several new boat captains joined veteran CAST boat captains, for a total of 27 boats.  The Hillsboro Kiwanis Club once again cooked hamburgers and hotdogs for a lunch that was very tasty!  Hot, fresh Krispy Crème donuts and Starbucks coffee were enjoyed by all as they arrived on the scene.  Two members of the Gaston Fire Dept. helped load and unload participants and families from their boats.  The local sheriff was also on hand with their boat in the water for the entire event.  There were no incidents or injuries.
