Has anyone heard if this event is going on this year? I have received fliers in the mail in the past but nothing this year. Thanks all - Steve.
I was the guy helping load and unload kids onto the boats when you docked, I was the one admiring your rig. Nice job on taking the kids out fishing!! Hats off to you bud!!!! AlNot a bad turn out this year and the weather held out until the event was done. I am 29 years old and I have been doing that for as long as I can remember, I only missed it three times. I usually help my dad out, back in the day we ran The Clinton ( the old Queen ) and now we run The Believer ( 31 ft Bertram). My uncle runs his Lurhs and has been doing that for as long as us. Had a girl who never caught a fish before and she got about a 8 inch perch, she was tickled pink. It is always a great day for that.
Are you Terry? Me and my buddy helped tie your boat off and spoke with you after the event, my buddy Mike was the big fireman. Al :chillin:I must have seen both of you guys, I recall the Believer for sure. We caught a few small perch, kids were happy but each one got a turn at the wheel on the way back in , that seemed to put a big smile on their faces. I spoke with one of the organizers and they said the threat of rain probably kept about 100-150 more kids away. Still had about 250.
