The Fishing Tournament for 2105 is scheduled to be held at the Jackson County Expo Ponds on May 16, 2015 starting at 7:00 a.m. The State Fish & Wildlife will be stocking the ponds and will continue until the temperature becomes too much for the fish to survive, which will be after the tournament.
Our 14th Annual Tournament will have three divisions: Kids (through age 17), Adult (ages 18-64), and Seniors (age 65+)/Disabled. In the past we had separate Senior and Disabled divisions but we have had so few entrants in the Disabled division in the last few tournaments that we decided to combine the two in 2014. The prize distribution for both divisions are described below.
The tournament is now open to all participants and not limited only to seniors or people with disabilities. We believe that this will help bring awareness to the local public the work DRP is doing on behalf of seniors and people with disabilities in our community.
The Kids division WILL NOT have cash awards but will have gift certificates and prizes valued at $75, $50, and $25 for first through third prizes.
The prizes for the Adult Division and the Seniors/Disabled Division is as follows:
First Prize: $200.00
Second Prize: $100.00
Third Prize: $50.00
