Save the Date! Ft. Carson Military Kids Fishing Day, June 14, 2014

Posted by on March 24, 2014

2014_Ft._C_Kids_Day_ctsy_Tom_Grace_3.JPG This will be the date of our annual fishing day at Pueblo for kids of deployed Ft. Carson personnel. We will need boaters to help take kids out for a couple hours of fishing on the lake and will supply them with rods and reels, tackle boxes, hooks, sinkers, nightcrawlers and some lures for them to use and keep. As always this is the day before Father's Day.

This is a day for the kids and whatever they want to fish for. They've caught carp, all three bass species, bluegill, trout, catfish, wipers and walleye and it's a fun day for them as well as for us.

We'll again have lunch afterwards and photos and prizes for biggest and smallest fish, strangest and maybe wildest fish story. We've had families immediately send pics around the world to deployed parents.

2014_Ft._C_Kids_Day_ctsy_Tom_Grace_4.jpgWe're looking for boaters from the bass clubs, the walleye group and anyone with a sea worthy boat to donate a few hours of their lives as a thank you to the personnel and families who continue to provide us with the freedoms we enjoy. Let's please not take their service for granted. And please pass this info on to your other club members and friends.

We'll have an organizational meeting at Ft. Carson within the next couple weeks and more info will be available as far as time to meet. The plan is to use the beach area at the North Marina as our HQ.
