Another fantastic New Castle kids fishing derby

Thanks to our amazing community, we had another fantastic kids fishing derby here in New Castle. This is an event that is run by the New Castle Cub Scouts, but we couldn’t have done it without our super sponsors. A special thank-you to Mr. T’s Hardware, the Castle Valley Homeowners association, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Pepsi, City Market, Hogback Pizza, and Walker Bait for making this day special for about 100 kids and their parents.

A special thank you to Brian Gray with CPW, Kevin Hurley, Shannon Macfee, Casy Carbone-Marron, Ty Hennessy and Hannah Bihr.

We caught lots of fish, and there were many comments from giggling kids “That’s my first fish,” and the parents were about as giggly.

We have two divisions: 7 and under, and 8-15. This year with the help of the homeowners, we added to the prize pool with a gold medal, a special name plate, pizza and sodas, and $20 to the top six winners.

Our combined winners this year were for first fish: Cameron Schroeder and Rowyn Rickert; biggest fish: Eddie Bernal and Tristan Mirick; and the most fish caught in one hour: Evan Schloeme. In the 8-15 division was a walkaway with 11 fish caught in one hour, and second largest fish overall. Congratulations to Tristan Mirick.

Did you know that in 2016, New Castle had the least amount of crime of any town in Western Colorado? If you would like to learn more about Cub Scouts, and getting involved with your boy and your community, let’s make a difference together. Call John Harcourt at 970-984-0288.
