Recommended Posts

We are having our first tournament for all high school students.  Please note any suggestions on the overall running of this tournament.

Thanks!

1st Annual

Broad Run High School Fishing Club

Fall Fishing Tournament

Where: Alder, Beech and Cedar Lakes in Ashburn Village.

When:  The tournament will be held on Saturday, October 18th at 7:00 a.m.  Registration will be at 6:30 a.m.  This event will go on rain or shine.

Who:  All High School Students (adult fishermen will be walking around giving advice).

Why:  To have fun and become better at fishing.  

First place, second place, third place and lunker fish of the day will receive plaques.  Additionally, there will be a raffle at the end for some great fishing gear.

Rules and Regulations

-  This will be a paper fishing tournament.  All members will be given a ruler to measure the fish.  To measure the fish you must lay the fish across the ruler and measure from head to tail, with the mouth closed.  Then you will write down the measurements of all the fish.  Each person's top five fish will be added up to decide who the winner is.

-Fish must be caught on artificial lures.  NO LIVE BAIT!

-Fish must be released after caught and measured.

-You must stop fishing when the horn is blown.

-Tournament director's decisions are final

-All fishermen that are 16 years old or older MUST possess a valid VA fishing license.

Directions

The registration table will be in the backyard (21317 Comus Ct.) of our Vice President's house, Brett Rojas.  The easiest place to park will be along Cheltenham Circle between Cedar and Beech Lake.

If you are coming from Waxpool Rd., make a turn on to Ashburn Village Boulevard, and then make a left on to Cheltenham Rd. Follow this road (just past Felicity) until you see white picket fences.  There will be a lake on both sides.  The lake on the left is Cedar Lake which is where the registration table is going to be.  If you are coming from Rt.7, make a turn onto Ashburn Village Boulevard. Then take a right on to the second Cheltenham entrance and follow the above directions.

If you have any questions about the directions, tournament or the club in general, please contact me.

I love it when the young people get a chance like this. You should be commended.

If possible try to have something for everyone(even if it is a certificate), something they can put their hands on.

Good luck
