Camp Autumn to Host Ice Fishing Tournament & Fundraiser February 15 

Seasons Center and Camp Autumn are hosting an Ice Fishing Tournament & Fundraiser at Camp Autumn on Saturday.

Camp Director Adam Lybarger explains.  "We have a private lake out here on our camp property, it's about 30 acres, and we're going to open that up, basically for the first time, to give the public a chance to come out and fish on the lake with us and get to see Camp Autumn.  Our tournament is going to run from 9 am to 2 pm, and the Iowa Great Lakes Fishing Club is helping us out.  They're running all the tournament stuff.  They're also going to have some poles and shacks and heaters and electronics available on a first-come, first-served basis.  They're also running a Kid's Fishing Clinic to teach them a little bit about safety and ice fishing from 11 to noon."

He notes that free will donations will be accepted and preregistration is requested.  "So, the best thing to do is, you can get lots of information, you can see some pictures, see all the prizes, is going to be to go to our Camp Autumn facebook page.  We have an events page there for both the Ice Fishing Tournament and the Kid's Fishing Tournament.  There's no need to register, you can just show up the day of, but we would appreciate it." 

Proceeds from the event will go toward scholarships for children to attend Camp Autumn this summer.
