Dam to Dam Ice Fishing Fundraiser February 14!
It's time once again for the 3rd Annual Dam-to-Dam Ice Fishing contest at Croton and Hardy Dams. This annual event raises funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Newaygo County. Saturday, February 14 is the date of this year's event.
Last year's event raised $12,000!
Registration has already begun at several spots in the area. Adults can register for $5.00 (Children 13 and under $2.00) at Croton Bay Trading Post, Hilltop Shopping Center, Driftwood Bar and Grill and the American Legion. Each registration comes with a raffle ticket for some great prizes. Raffle tickets are also available for purchase. This is Free Fishing Weekend so fishing licenses aren't necessary.
Fish all day but be in line for the weigh-in at the American Legion on Croton-Hardy Drive by 3:30 p.m. Awards will be given for the biggest fish in several categories; see someone at the American Legion for more details.
Leinenkugel's will have a tent on the ice. Stop by for food and fun games including Most Outrageous Hat contest and Tip Up Squares. Hot chocolate, hot coffee, hot dogs and much more will be avialable to make your stay on the ice a little nicer.
Stop by our table with your fish for a photo op! We will again make commemorative photo books for the major sponsors of this year's event. You can order your own copy of the book, too... or download our software and create a 2009 Dam-to-Dam Ice Fishing Contest book of your own!
