View Full Version : Free Kids Tournament

04-18-2007, 05:06 PM
You are all invited to bring your youngsters to a free kids fishing derby provided by the members of the CHautauqua Lake Bassmasters. This event will be held June 2nd 9am-noon at the Celeron Park on Chautauqua Lake. This will all be shoreline fishing with free bait, goody bags, prizes for every kid participating, different age groups awarded top prizes, and free lunch provided by McDonalds. We have held this event for many, many years and have between 150-200 kids attend. Winners are determined by the total number of inches from all fish caught. We will have many officals along the shoreline to measure fish. Many sponsors provide us moneys or products including our own Grizzly Gary. Registration starts at 8am with an offical horn blasting to start the event at 9am. Hope to see your kids or relatives at this event. Randy

This is a great day for the kids!!. Any and all with young ones should get them over to Celeron Park on this day. Tons & tons of prozes for the kids and they get the fishing bug for life.

Kudos to the Chautauqua Lake Bassmasters for doing this every year!!

This is a classic way to get your young ones started fishing and it is all free! The Chautauqua Lake Bassmasters give a ton of prizes to the kids. It is also a wonderful thing the McDonalds provides breakfast for free.

Spread the word on this. All kids 15 and under are welcome.

I would be glad to kick it to the top Woodlandtrophies!

Also a fine thing that folks like The Happy Hooker Bait & Tackle Shop in Ashville NY get involved supporting this day for the kids.

Great way to spend the morning with the kids!

Just a little update...we had 175 kids entered in this years fishing derby. Thats alot of kids. It was a great way to get fathers, mothers, grandparents ect out with their kids. It is our hope that a life long desire was developed for these adults to take kids fishing and enjoy the outdoors with them. Thanks again to Grizzly Gary for being one of our fine sponsors. Randy
