On Sunday May 29th The Concession Golf Club hosted their 1st Annual Kid’s Fishing Tournament. Members and Guests were invited to bring out their youngsters for one hour of tournament style fishing. Three awards were given to the following winners;

First Fish Caught (Regan Panico, pictured with Mom Kristen & friend Austin Bruce). Largest Fish Caught, (people are still comparing “Fish Stories” to determine) and Most Fish Caught, winner Jack Jones.

The tournament was officiated by GCSAA golf course superintendent Terry Kennelly. Roughly 14 kids participated with a total crowd of 40 on-lookers including parents and grand-parents. Following the fishing, The Concession Bistro hosted a nice cook-out style lunch with burgers, hot dogs, and ice cream sandwich’s that were a hit on the warm day.

To the delight of everyone, all contestants caught at least one fish and there was even a small alligator that excited the crowd when he realized that taking the fish off a hook was easier than catching them while they swim free. All kids and parents got a nice tee-shirt to commemorate the day but most of all the memories.
