Fishing Forever and Family Fishing Weekend
The Fishing Forever Weekend is a yearly family event that The Nelson Rod And Gun Club, in association with BCWF, has continued since 2004 and has grown 50% annually. It creates an opportunity for disabled, seniors and families to enjoy a day of fishing in the beautiful setting of Cottonwood Lake. However, volunteers, boats* and operators are seriously needed to ensure its success.
Volunteers are needed for:
– Moving equipment to the site and setting up on Friday afternoon, June 19.
– Help in the kitchen, 3 hour shift (Sat. & Sun.),
– Help organize fishing gear, registration, boats & passengers, life jackets and boat operators (Sat. & Sun.), and
– Help to take it all down on Sunday late afternoon (4 pm).

Commodores will be needed to oversee and coordinate the ‘on water’ activities (Sat. & Sun.).
If you can provide any assistance, please call Richard Green (250) 352-5609 or Joani Trickett (250) 825-4219. Please help ensure its continued success!
* Boats must have electric motors or oars. No gas engines permitted.
