|Early this year Doug Cramer suggested we start
a new competition with a goal of to
achieve 3 objectives, provide another cash award for a lucky/skilled SWT
team or member, to help fund raise for the SWT and to raise funds to be
donated to a charity.
Doug's suggestion was to start a big fish pool with 50% of the pool being awarded to the member/team catching the biggest fish of the season (during one of the SWT events), 25% would be kept by the SWT for future expenditures and 25% would be donated to a charity chosen by the SWT executive.
The pool was an outstanding success with 142 of our members paying $20 to enter the pool. The largest fish, weighing in at 11.86 lbs. was caught at the Sask Landing tournament by Clarence Neufeld and Garth MacLean. Clarence and Garth were awarded a $1420 cheque at the Rowan's tournament awards night.
The charity selected for the donation was the Kids Help Phone and they were very pleased to accept our donation of $710.00 and gave us a thank you card with the hand written note shown below.
|Thank you to all the members that entered the pool and special thanks to Doug Cramer for suggesting this and donating to trophies for this award.|
