The Club will again sponsor this annual event on Saturday, April 25th from 7-10AM at Page Park/ Rockwell Lagoon in Bristol. Kids up to 13 allowed. This is NOT the Club children’s event.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP OUT! If you can lend a hand, please see or call Art Miller at 860 487-3671. This event is only a few hours and we need the help. Short trip for local members.
ANNUAL CHILDRENS FISHING DERBY
Don Jagielski/Tom Nicoletti, Co-Chairman.
This year’s Fishing Derby will be held on Saturday May 9th. Again, this year, we will have plenty of fish and prizes. The Derby starts at 7:00 AM and ends at 10:00 AM; then you will have 15 minutes to bring the rest of the catch in for measuring. Remember that the kids have the pond the whole day after the Derby is over. At 10:15 AM, the awards and prizes will be given out. So, bring your kids, Grandkids and Nephews/Nieces up for a lot of fun as this is probably the best event of the year at BF&G.
1st Place Winner Briana Santiago
2nd Place Winner Levi Goodsell
Good luck to all and maybe you’ll be a lucky one this year!
The pond will be closed both Thursday and Friday May 7th & 8th and will be open again ONLY TO CHILDREN Saturday May 9th. It will reopen to members on Sunday May 10th.
