HOW THE "REMOTE" FISHING FUNDRAISER WORKS!

Step 1: Register on Eventbrite! We will let you know when your participant t-shirt and coupon book will be available at our building at 504 21st, Glenwood Springs. We can also USPS your items for a small additional fee.

Step 2: Head out to your favorite fishing spot and cast your line anytime between September 23rd and October 11th. You can also fish as many times as you like during that time!

Step 3: Reel in your fish and snap a picture with you included. Measure the length and the weight of the fish. Since this is for fun and a fundraiser, your measurements are on the honor system :)

Step 4: Complete the "Reel It In!" form recording your name, age category, location, date, length, weight, type of fish, and number of fish caught.

Step 5: Send the pictures and the form to mary@riverbridgerc.org for competition collection.

Awards and prizes will be announced the week of October 12th!
