You’re turned loose on a Saturday morning with a list of 36 species of fish that can be caught locally. The objective is to catch as many as you can in a week. Fish where you like, with who you like, for an hour or all week. You’re given items that must appear in photos to show you caught the fish that week, and a kid needs to be in the photos to qualify. Definition of a “kid” is on your registration, (other side). Keep or release your fish, all we want is a picture.
The following Saturday morning show us your pictures. Each photo gets raffle tickets. 1 photo per species and move on to the next.
A week later you’ll see all of the prizes and start to understand how a catfish could easily win a big screen television. Over 400 people showed up for the first year, almost 500 the second. Food is another memorable part of the event. No wristbands or additional fees. Everyone eats.
The raffle is designed where you associate your tickets with things you’d personally like to win. All proceeds go directly to a 501c being developed to teach advanced life and people skills to our youth.
Sponsors are very generous and volunteers come from all over to help work and organize this memorable event. The raffle itself is the main attraction and lasts about 3 hours. Bring your appetite:)
