What a day!
Twin Ponds wants to thank all who attended the 2019 Fishing Derby. This was one of our most successful Fishing Derby’s to date! We hope you had as much fun as we did.
The weather was perfect with just the right amount of sunshine and the temperature was about 83 degrees. Kids were fishing at exactly 10AM and running their fish to the weigh-in station until the very last moment in hopes of winning largest fish in their age group, or most fish caught for the day. Steve from maintenance manned the weigh-in station this year and the amount of fish brought in kept him on his toes. Lauren from the office never put her pen down and kept track of all those fish in the different age groups. Thank you, Steve and Lauren!
The amazing NH Balloon Man was here! He never stopped twisting balloons in the 4 hours he was here. This is White’s second year here and the kids just love him. He is crazy-talented making anything from a detailed unicorn hat to a three-toed sloth hanging from a branch. Check out White’s website at www.nhballoonman.com.
Almost every child had their face painted. This year’s most popular request seemed to be the butterfly and it fit perfectly with the day. Around Noontime, Don and Kyle sparked up the grill and fed almost 100 residents. There were burgers and dogs, chips and drinks and of course we handed out giant freeze pops after lunch was served. Thank you Don and Kyle!
There was lots of fun, lots of food and plenty of activities whether you were fishing or not. The day ended with trophies and medallions for all the kids. The biggest catch of the day was caught by Corey Jungkman (age 17). Corey’s catch was a 9 1/2 pound, Carp that measured 26 inches! The most fish caught were caught by Jackson Chittister (age 13). Enjoy our photos and we hope to see you next year.
