Great activity for the community to get out and enjoy the park and make a new tradition for the family to begin the new year. This year could not have had any better weather for a great turn out of 105 people! Thanks to DCNR.

I didn't bother gping to fish, it was way too windy. I went to the park and noticed that not many others showed up either. Three needs to be more detailed info about these tournaments and a better contact to answer questions.
