Email from Mr. Miller:
It is Free Fishing Days this coming weekend (no fishing license needed in Kentucky!) and Troop 73 has a great private fishing spot picked out for Saturday morning.
Need: Scout leaders, Dads, Moms, who like to fish (or want to learn) to help teach and supervise (BSA is not Baby Sitters of America). I can only be there about the first hour, as I have to take Wilson Miller to Camp McKee to check in for Staff Week at noon, and we will need parents/leaders to help drive there and back, and at least 2 need to be at the activity the entire time.
When: Saturday, June 7; Meet at Centenary parking lot at 8 am, and we will then head to fishing spot and stay until about noon
Where: Feigel Property pond, 1301 Elkchester Road
Required: Activity Consent Form (attached) and will be made available at Tuesday's meeting and Saturday morning; needs to be signed by all participants and parents.
Bring: Fishing pole, bait (nightcrawler worms are suggested by the owner), sunscreen, hat, insect spray, water bottle. Best if your pole has a hook on the line and a bobber ready to go!
But, if not sure what to do with fishing equipment, bring it anyway and you shall learn.
Wear: Class B shirts, and probably not your best Class B shirt!
Best local places to get fishing bait: Backwater Outfitters, 1660 E. New Circle Rd; PDQ Market, 460 E New Circle Rd., any Wal-Mart sporting goods dept.
Why: All Scouts need to know to fish! Leave No Child Left Inside!

More details will be given out at Tuesday's meeting, or call me during the day, 296-9229, or eves, 269-7038.
