Donations: Casting Kids

Recommended Posts

Once again the Northern New York Bassmasters Federated & Club Team will be hosting a casting kids competition at the Ogdensburg Golden Dome during the Ogdensburg Expo, March 2008. I wrote last year and got one donation from the board, which is better than none!

This will be the second year we are embarking on this successful event. Last year we held one of the largest casting kids contests at the Expo running over 300 kids through the competition and sending the winners to the NY State competition, which two of our local kids actually won and went on to the Nationals in Florida! (link below)

We were able to collect donations from local tackle shops at Black Lake and the Ogdensburg community, and hand out tackle to each and every child who went through our program. Many children actually left with fishing poles we were able to collect from Shakespeare and the local Walrmart store.

We feel its a great way to get the kids involved and exposed to fishing and conservation of our waters, and give them some supplies that many of them would not be able to afford.

As we start even earlier this year getting prepared, I am once again asking that if anyone would like to donate any of their extra soft plastic baits so we can use them in the grab bags for the kids it would be greatly appreciated. I usually make a bunch up myself to donate and anyone who has tried anything like this before knows how hard it is to get donations, as our club members spend months attempting to get help from every company in the book and very few respond back with any type of help.

If you are interested you can send ANY TYPE of fishing supplies to us at:

NNYBM CLUB

Brad Paradis

300 Main Street

Ogdensburg, NY 13669

If you have any questions or need to contact me you can send me a PM or email me at paradisbrad@hotmail.com

Make sure to accompany any donations with a name and web address if you have one, I would be happy to post your businesses information as a sponsor for this event on our club site.

Thanks in advance

Two of our kids we ran through last year won at the states and competed at the National Semifinals in Florida! Two kids from the same community!

Alright folks,

We are getting things ready for the casting kids for the Ogdensburg Expo. As I stated above we are asking for donations for any kind or quantity. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The kids absolutely loved it last year and being able to give them tackle to leave with was a great experience.

A few people wanted me to let them know when we needed them. We will be meeting several times this month preparing for the event which is held March 28th - 30th.

If anyone is willing send to:

NNYBMII Club

Brad Paradis

300 Main St.

Ogdensburg, NY 13669

Also, please include any of your personal web sites addresses, as I will link them to our clubs website as a sponsor.

Thank you,

Brad
