Description:
This will be our 27th Annual Catch A Special Thrill event (co-hosted with Larimer County) and we will be taking disabled/disadvantaged children out in boats for a fun filled day of fishing and celebration of these young heroes, and a little help for their 24/7 caregivers. We begin the day with a continental breakfast, register each child, give them their equipment that they will need and keep for their very own. They are then fitted with PFD and go out with an experienced boater for a morning of fun and adventure on the water! After a big barbeque luncheon each child is recognized on stage, given a plaque and other prizes. EMTs are staged close by at the South Bay Pavillion. Radio contact is done with Hamm Radio operators and LC Parks 2. Rangers oversee the safety of our group and we have plenty of staff to direct traffic at the ramp. Food is catered by Nordy's Barbeque and clean up is completed by 1:30. A boater safety meeting is held prior to loading, and at least one parent or guardian rides with the child. Young anglers from our Youth Club help shore fishing and on pontoons where needed. This is such a great event and we are very proud to co-host with Larimer County!
