The ISA will once again be sponsoring the Kids Casting Area at the upcoming Northern Illinois Hunting & Fishing Days event to be held at Silver Springs State Park in Yorkville on Saturday and Sunday, September 26 and 27. The event hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
NIH&FD is a FREE, family-oriented celebration of the great outdoors. There will be lots of activities such as canoeing, dog training demonstrations, a bluegill stocked kids fishing pond, a historical re-enactment camp, BB gun target shooting, fly fishing tying station and casting, archery range, shotgun clay target shooting, a Hawg Trough filled with Fox River fish species, silent auctions and much more. Food concessions are available during the event. There will be a Boy Scout breakfast kicking off each morning as well.
The ISA needs volunteers for the Kids Casting Area on both days of the event. Please consider spending a hour or two helping the ISA to foster the love of fishing and the great outdoors with the next generation of fishermen and fisherwomen. Bring the family and enjoy the rest of the day there beforehand or afterwards.
Set up for the ISA area will begin at 8 a.m. on each day. I would like to have at least four volunteers present in the casting area at all times during to the event to work with the kids and handle equipment malfunctions. Please reply to this posting with the day/time you are available to assist or with any questions you might have about the event.
Thank you for supporting the ISA in its efforts to promote the sport of fishing!
