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, March 31, 2018 brought a beautiful spring day to Lake Murray marina near Ardmore Oklahoma. 36 children arrived to enjoy your beautiful day fishing and boating. The Lake Murray yacht club stepped up in a big way in 2018 and we had 31 boats available to take the 36 children and family members out on the water. Fish species caught in 2018, ranged from bluegill, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, catfish, and carp. We had a huge Easter egg hunt for the children and delicious food was served for lunch. Cottonpatch Café fed the children chicken fingers and the volunteers and boat captains enjoyed chopped brisket from Tender smokehouse in Celina Tx.

In the three-year history of this event, this was by far the most successful and that we have had. Everyone is already looking forward to and making plans for 2019. April 15, 2019 will be the day for more fun!
