Green Lake Regional Angler Young Angler Fishing Tournament
Saturday June 14, 2014 Deacon Mills Park, Green Lake, WI
Looking for Fishing Teams, Sponsors and Volunteers!
For the sixth year Dave and Krista Norton, of Nortonís Dry Dock, are working with the Angler Young Angler (AYA) National Organization, a not-for-profit organization, whose goal is to promote fishing and family values in a youth tournament. The event focus is young anglers working with adult mentors and building memories and relationships with families, friends, and the beautiful lake we all love.
Again this year Nortonís Dry Dock is holding this tournament on Green Lake, based out of Deacon Mills Park, Saturday, June 14, 2014. We are looking for fishing teams to fill this event. Each team in the tournament consists of one adult angler and up to two young anglers, 17 and under. From the 8:30 am blast-off to the 2:30 pm weigh-in, each youth explores the water with their team, in search of the right combination of 5 small mouth bass. The event includes official weigh-in, lots of prizes, awards, and a BBQ. The winning team goes home with a Lund A -12 fishing boat powered by a 5HP Mercury 4 stroke outboard on a ShoreLandrí trailer and a trip to compete in the International AYA Championship at Lake of The Woods in Kenora, Ontario, Canada.
Entry fee is $150 per team. Starting position is set by receipt of entry fee, with a 50 team limit. It promises to be a day to remember - donít be left on the dock!
We are also looking for businesses who would be interested in helping sponsor this not-for-profit event. What a great opportunity to show support for the areas youth and instill in them an appreciation for fishing and the outdoors we all enjoy. In 2013 every young angler received a rod/reel/line, a soft sided tackle box, over 25 lures, a trophy, and a bag of goodies.
All donations will be used to cover the costs of prizes, trophies, and the food for the volunteers and participants, and a travel allowance for the winning team. Checks can be made payable to: Nortonís Dry Dock Ė AYA. Mailed to: W3886 Cty. Rd. T, Princeton, WI 54968.
