STANDISH TOWNSHIP —Eagle Bay Marina (EBM) is hosting a kids’ fishing tournament for children ages four to 16 on June 20.
According to Migizi Corporation Marketing and Public Relations Manager Mary Killmer, the tournament begins at 7 a.m., the normal opening time for EBM, and concludes with final weigh ins at 6 p.m.
“You don’t have to be present to win,” Killmer said, adding it could be memorable for fathers to see their youngsters reeling in a winner.
“It’s a good thing to get the kids out on the bay,” she said. “It could make for an exciting Father’s Day weekend.”
She says entrants will be divided into two categories.
“It’ll (tournament) be broken into a four to ten-year-old division and 11 to 16-year-old division,” she said.
Killmer added everyone who registers for the tournament would receive a free Father’s Day Meal on Sunday as well as a personalized participation certificate, and everyone in attendance on Saturday would have the opportunity at a special prize.
“They’ll have a chance to win a free charter on Looney Tunes Charters,” Killmer said.
She says there will be a prize for the fishers with the top three fish.
“Any species of fish is eligible to win,” Kilmer said.
