    Just seeing/ how many kids will be at the gathering at Melvern.

    There has been talk that it would be nice to have some activity's for the kids to do so I thought we could have a bait catching contest for them.

    I plan to buy a few small prizes and a couple of trophy's and we can award like a most fish caught in a hour and biggest fish caught trophy to them.

    All of them will recieve a prize for thier effort's in catching bait for us:wink:

    What does everyone think about doing this.

    These are our future fishermen/women and we need to make it fun for them.

    Sorry Jim you cant enter this one:smile2::smile2:

    Tom, I might have some brand new sealed fishing reels. They look like Zebco 33's or something.

    Still have to locate them first and we could give them away for prizes:smile2::wink::smile2:

    Very good Idea Tom, Might keep Donnie out of trouble:wink::eek:oooh::smile2:LOL j/k

    Let me look around and see what else I can come up with I do know I have a couple rods as well.

    Kyle with your skills at the camera maybe you can record their catches on film.

    Something they could keep forever and show their kid's someday..

    I,ll have all three there again. The little guy is gettin pretty good at casting and I can't keep him out of the new boat, which he says is his.:smile2: The big kids are wishing it was already here(the gathering). I'm sure I can dig some stuff out or pick some things up also.

    See, Tom! Toljah we'd pick up a few new members just cruising the web
    asking questions...June Gathering is probably gonna exceed the hype we
    put on it if we hide Donnie somewheres...Got any spare closet space?

    Same here Tom, I'll try and talk Lydia out a couple of her old poles she doesn't use anymore, with reels(zebco's). At the minimum I'll bring some jigs, little lures, Mr Twisters, etc. Heck of a good idea. It would be nice if folks would post how many kids will be coming, just so we have an idea, and make sure we have enough gear for all of them?:wink:
