Red Arrow Annual Fish-A-Ree Deemed a Success

The third weekend of February brought a big crowd to our 41st annual winter fundraiser event as folks looked for ways to get out and enjoy the unseasonable weather. Many local residents and weekender helped support the event in spite of the melting snow.

The biggest walleye of the weekend was 5 pounds, 15 ounces caught by Riley Hoffman.

Everyone enjoyed meat raffles, DJ music, beverages and lots of good food. Club President Gary Wagner wants to express a great big thank you to all the club members who worked at the event and the many businesses who contributed prizes for our raffles. “We appreciate it…help us return the favor by shopping locally!”

The annual fishing contest saw 28 registrants bring in over 50 fish to be weighed. The largest northern weighed in at 9# 6oz; the largest bass was 6# 11oz and the largest walleye was 5# 15oz.

40 raffle prizes were awarded and included items such as gas cards, snowmobile gear, lodging packages and everything in between. 

A nice event profit will help the Red Arrow Snowmobile ATV Club maintain their record of having some of the finest snowmobile and ATV trails in this part of the state. Thanks again to all who helped make this event such a success. Check our website www.redarrowtownsend.com for events, meeting locations and up to date club and trail information.
