Each year, the Anglers sponsor the Grandparents Derby. The fishing hole is Lake 6 at the SLCC. Lake 6 is directly behind the pitch and putt golf which is behind the SCCC building. The Grandparents Derby is always the Saturday before Easter. This year, it is April 15. It is open to all kids in Greater Sun Lakes. Bring your grandchild and your HOA card, sign in and pick up your equipment and bait. The fishing starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 11:00 a.m. There will be people on hand to help. You may bring your own equipment if you wish. Fishing should be good, as we stock the lake and keep the fish healthy.
There are many prizes for all kinds of accomplishments. We found that sometimes the prizes chosen by the members were, to quote one of our young fisher persons, “lame,” so we have enlisted the advice of an “appropriate age group” when purchasing the prizes.
At this reading, we will have completed the spring fishing for the local schools. There were three events, and a good time was had by all.
To fund the fishing trips and the equipment, the Anglers sponsor and sell items at the flea market held on the third Saturday of the month (April 15) at the SLCC parking lot. You will find great bargains. The hours are 7:00-11:00 a.m. Donations to the Anglers are sold, and the proceeds go to support the fishing outings we sponsor. We need smallish items to sell. For donations, call Don Herring at 480-802-9320 for drop-off or pick-up. For a booth of your own at the flea market, contact the SLCC office at the clubhouse. Only a $5.00 fee gets you a spot.
We would like/need you to join the club. We meet on the first Tuesday of the month in the Mirror Room of SLCC at 7:00 p.m. The next two meetings will be April 4 and May 2. See you there; ladies welcome.
