Our 8th Annual Youth Day was another success! This is due to the fantastic volunteers from so many clubs and organizations as well as members from DRSFA. We are indebted to them for all they do to make this event “happen”.

This event will enhance the education and life skills of the 80 students that were present. Each child had the opportunity to learn more about canoe safety, knot tying, ethics, fishing, aquatics, archery, casting, wildlife ID, tree and plant ID and reptiles.

We have been fortunate enough to have some sponsors that have supported us since this event’s inception as well as gained some new sponsors. These sponsors are so important to the success of the program and a heartfelt “thank you” goes out to every one of them.

We are already planning and looking ahead to the 9th annual event on June 20, 2015. Blue Mountain Fish & Game Association has graciously offered to host again for 2015. The committee is already planning and thinking about some changes to the event.

We have discussed the possibility of online registration and the consideration of a registration fee. Each year we seem to have a large number of students who do not show up, even though they are registered. This is unfair to all that work so hard to put the program together and to those that could have registered and benefited from the event but couldn’t due to a “full” registration. Having to inform some deserving youngster that our quota is filled just isn’t fair to those youngsters who are interested. None of these ideas are final decisions; just broached topics under discussion.

On a positive note, everyone that was in attendance left with the excitement of returning next year and expressed their appreciation for a quality program. Planning will continue throughout the coming year to ensure the 2015 program is no less fulfilling than any of our previous presentations.

As we get closer to the event, we will update information as it becomes available. Please keep in mind this is for ages 8-15 and open to 100 registered students. Registrations will begin in March and we look forward to providing another great outdoor experience. Anyone wishing to serve on the committee to help plan and organize should contact David Carl at fisherman_dcarl@yahoo.com or 570-325-4336.
