There were 31 participants in this year’s Kids Fishing Derby and 374 fish caught. Dr. Devries checked in all of the fisherman and helped Sean Isgan award the prizes. The first place winners each took home a trophy and a fishing rod. Second place winners received a tackle box. The children’s check-in numbers were put into a random drawing and each participant went home with prizes for their hard work.
The First Place Winners were: 3 – 5 year olds, Mason Wear; 6 – 8 years olds, Jordan Young; 9 – 10 year olds, Nick Rininger; 11 – 14 year olds, Angel Oxtero and the Lunker Award (biggest fish) went to Charley Aber.
There were hot dogs, chips and drinks for everyone. It was a fun morning and a great chance to visit with your neighbors on the lake. Thanks to our generous sponsors who helped make this a fun and successful event.
It was announced that the Derby will be held again on Labor Day weekend next year.
