Today is an exciting day for Houston Bass Club of the Deaf! (HBCD) We
will be hosting for the first time our 1st Annual Junior Anglers
Tournament which will take place at Mary Jo Peckham Park in Katy,
Texas. (see our website www.hbcd1968.org) The date will be July 14,
2012 from 9am to 4pm. This will be an annual event sponsored by many of
our valuable contributors. The event is FREE to all kid participants.
The purpose of this event is to promote an opportunity to the deaf/Hard
of Hearing /deaf-blind kids in our community area where the main focus
is entirely on them to enjoy fun day of fishing. It is important to
educate them the fundamentals knowledge of how to fish.
The skills can be taught by own HBCD Bass Anglers, their parents, or
guardians. It is a “tournament” in which they can gather a lot of fish
where they can weigh in the most and be awarded prizes. HBCD will be
providing 3 age catagories of 2-5/ 6-13 / 14-17 years old. Awards will
be given as 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each of these age categories.
Lunch will be served as well. Important of all is for them to have FUN!
HBCD believes the kids are of importance to enjoy and instill them in
the love of becoming an expert in the fishing abilities in which they
can one day be involved in future tournaments.
