The Walnut Springs Middle School Fishing Club participated in the Cabela’s (Polaris) grand opening events, on Saturday and Sunday, March 9 and 10.  Advisor Dwight Back, was contacted by management of the new store, and asked to coordinate an FLW/The Bass Federation sanctioned “Reel Kids Casting Competition” for shoppers and their families.  More than 30 members of the Walnut Springs Fishing Club and their parents volunteered their time, throughout the weekend, to instruct over 100 children (ages 5-15) in techniques for “flipping, pitching, and casting.” As a consummation activity, more than 70 of the participating children competed for a spot in the Ohio Junior Bass Federation State “Reel Kids Competition” that will be held later in 2013.
