GLEN ELDER STATE PARK TO HOST YOUTH FISHING TOURNAMENT MAY 31

Prizes for all kids; special awards for biggest, smallest, and most fish
BELOIT -- The 4th annual Glen Elder Youth Fishing Tournament will be held Saturday, May 31, in association with Glen Elder State Park's OK Kids Day. On this day, approximately 20 local anglers volunteer their time and boats to take the youth fishing from 9 p.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Lunch will be provided by the Waconda Lake Association. Numerous prizes have been donated by local merchants, and all youth attending will receive at least one prize, a t-shirt, and fishing tackle. In addition, the youngsters who catch the biggest fish, most fish, and the smallest fish will receive a new rod-and-reel combination.
If high winds make boating unsafe, kids will fish from the shoreline. Any youth ages 7-14 are encouraged to attend. For more information or to pre-register, phone the park office at 785-545-3345. The tournament will be limited to the first 70 youngsters who apply.
