I am writing to tell you about the New Alsace Conservation Club’s 34th Annual Fishing Derby that is being held on Saturday, May 7th from 7 A.M. to 3 P.M. at Lake In The Pines just west of New Alsace. Our derby is designed to encourage adults and children alike to enjoy fishing, the outdoors and practice water safety. The New Alsace Conservation Club is a non-profit organization in our 40th year of operation. We would like to invite all to join us in celebrating our 34th derby.
At our 34th Annual Fishing Derby we will be giving away derby prizes and door prizes valued at $1500 or more to those who are registered. The derby is open to the public with an entry fee for adults and children 12 years and older of $18.00. Children under 12 are free. The derby will run from 7am until 3pm. Rain or shine. Registration will begin at 6am on derby day and continue to 2pm. It should be noted that participants are not required to possess an Indiana fishing license, since they will be fishing at a private lake.
Lake In The Pines is located west of New Alsace at 10412 N. Dearborn Rd., Sunman, IN. Directions: From the east take I-74 St. Leon Exit, 3 mi. S. on St. Rd. 1, right on N. Dearborn Rd. 3.5mi. Or, from the West take I-74 Sunman Exit, 3 mi. S. on St. Rd. 101 to Sunman, left on Eastern Ave. (N. Dearborn Rd.) 4.5 mile.
We are very excited about the New Alsace Conservation Club reaching the milestone of this being our 34th fishing derby; and would like everyone to come out and enjoy a day of fishing and fun.
The New Alsace Conservation Club would very much appreciate it if you could announce this with your other local upcoming events. We are a registered Not-for-Profit corporation in Indiana.
