The Fort Leavenworth Rod and Gun Club invites all international military students and their families to a “Fishing Derby” at Merritt Lake on Fort Leavenworth (just west of the corner of Grant and Sedgwick Ave.) on Sept. 11, 2021.
The derby is free to all international students and their families and no fishing license or equipment is required. The Rod and Gun Club will provide the equipment and bait.
Registration will open at 8 a.m. on Sept. 11. Fishing’s Future, a nonprofit that provides opportunities for families to reconnect to nature and learn about angling, will conduct a presentation beginning at 9 a.m. Fishing will be from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. Download the flyer.
The Rod and Gun Club leadership is also seeking volunteers for this event who know something about fishing and would be willing to help those who have little to no experience in the sport.
This event is focused on our international military families, but everyone is welcome to come and participate or volunteer to help others.
