    Second Annual Kids Fishing Tournament

    By Dede Bacon
    On Sunday, April 28th, from 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM, the newly formed local fishing club in Los Barriles “El Club de Pesca Deportiva Cabo del Este A.C.” or The East Cape Sports Fishing Club will hold their Second Annual Kids Fishing Tournament in honor of the Day of the Children, celebrated on April 30th in México.
    It is the goal of the non-profit organization to bring together all sports fishermen of the East Cape community. Their mission is to promote the culture of sport fishing and become a strong representative to our government in the decision making process which affects the local sport fishing industry and to be recognized as an organizer of International quality events and promoters of the security of our ocean habitat.
    This following information was printed in the Baja Pony Express:
    “The East Cape Sportfishing Club is looking for donations of toys and other award items appropriate for children for this year’s second annual Dias del Nino (Special Children’s Day) Tournament, held on the celebrated day of Sunday April 28. This special event allows children to experience what generations before them have – a day of fishing on the Sea of Cortez. The Club has purchased a laptop computer, a prize that can be used at the new Computer Center, a Tablet which can also be used to access Internet there, a bicycle and two different sets of rods and reels (courtesy of Peen suitable for beach fishing). Extra rods and reels the Club can clean up and repair as prizes are also needed as well as fishing line, tackle etc. Items can be dropped off at the Spa Buena Vista Beach Resort. Last year we had 50 kids and this year it looks like we’ll have 70 so any help would be greatly appreciated. Look for the full article next week in the East Capers and join in!”
    The Second Annual Kids Fishing Tournament is organized for children 12 years and younger, with a goal to provide fun and a fishing experience to them. Each team is able to present one fish for weigh in, with 1st to 5th place prizes ranging from a computer to a skateboard.
