Jerry Zeidler Memorial Cane Pole Derby

     The 2017 Cane Pole Derby will be held on Monday, May 29, at Rose Valley Lake (north access area).   Last year 150 kids participated! The purpose of the derby is to provide kids with an opportunity to enjoy and appreciate the natural resources of the Watershed.  The kids have a chance to compete for awards for the largest fish, the most fish caught, and the most trash gathered.  Tackle/ bait are provided and many prizes are awarded.  Every year local artist Ron Beach designs a patch to commemorate the Derby and each participant will receive a patch. Collectors can purchase the current patch plus patches from previous years.        Please note: all children must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. Please mark the date on your calendar and spread the word about the Derby to your friends and relatives. Your help (donations, manpower, etc.) can make this come true and would be appreciated.  Here is what we need:    Before the Derby:  We need gifts of new fishing/outdoor related items for prizes, or cash donations to offset the cost of everything the kids need to take part in this fun, free day.  We would like to see every child receive a prize.  On Derby Day (Monday, May 29th):  6:00 – 7:00 am: help with setting up tables and tents ·  7:30 – 9:30 am: help with registration; registration starts at 8:00 am, but eager anglers arrive early ·  9:00 – 11:30 am: help with food service ·  9:00 – 11:30 am: help the kids!  Some children arrive with parents who have little experience with fishing.  Having some people just walking around to help and encourage would be much appreciated ·  11:30 – 1:30 pm: take down tents; load tables and tents onto trucks If you would like to help with this project, please contact Jon Larson at 570-971-9153
