    Default Gettin Jiggy 2012 Kids Ice Fishing Derby

    it looks like Gettin Jiggy 2012 will be held at Finger Lake this year on February 25th, mark your calendars tell your friends and your friends friends! Base camp will be the Elks Lodge with easy lake access.

    im telling everybody early because i know a few of you adults out there like to hit up the lake before hand to find the good spots for their kids. its gotten kinda competitive over the years...

    Preed, thanks for putting up this tournament. It was great to bring the nephew out to catch some fish last year, he sure had a good time. We will be back out again this year for sure, looking forward to it. Maybe there will be another Jedi sighting? Thanks again for the work you do to make this happen.

    Fish On!
    You know your not catching any fish when you start talking about the weather...

    It was great being there last year with my boys. They were a little too young to enter but they had a blast just seeing all the sights and sounds. They loved seeing the gas auger in action. My boys and I will be back again this year. Looking forward to it again.

    does anybody know of someone in the business of porta potties? the guy who has donated them in the past for the derby is no longer around. this is a hard item to find as most of them i have asked in the past will not drive on a lake.

    also looking for donations. if anybody knows of any business's that can help out in terms of donating prizes (prizes for kids or a larger adult raffle prize) or donating cash please let me know. didnt get a big return this year on my mailings so anything will help.

    gettin busy with gettin jiggy

    thanks for any input!

    P.S. we will actually be giving a kid and his family a wish this year! his wish is to go Alaska Ice Fishing! pretty cool stuff right there i tell ya! seeing as i am not an avid fisherman of Finger Lake, if anybody has a good spot i could set this family on id really appreciate it. i have all the gear i just need a spot. pm me if you wanna keep it private.
