A crew of fishers took part in the 14th annual Family Fishing Weekend.

Fishing, golfing and fun had in the summer sun

This summer was the fourteenth year for the Family Fishing Weekend.

This summer was the fourteenth year for the Family Fishing Weekend that encourages families to get out on the water and spend some quality time with rods, reels, lines and each other.

“The weather was great, fun was had by all,” said organizer Cheryl Black. “Plenty of fish [were] caught ranging from 1.14 – 10.5  lbs.”

The event was sponsored by Ministry of Fisheries as well as local business Cheryl Black Coldwell Banker Rosling Real Estate.

Black was also busy with the third annual Golf Fore the Cure held on June 23. The charity tee-off raised $1,370 that will support Breast Cancer research. Nakusp Golf Course Manager Kalum Stevens supported the event by wearing pink. Black gave thanks to all the local businesses who donated fabulous prizes.

It was a scorcher, but the ladies were undeterred: the Nakusp Ladies Open was held on July 3, 2013.

“It was a hot day for golf but 44 ladies took to the challenge,” said Cheryl Black. “Just about everyone walked away with prizes donated by our local ladies group, the club house, Charlie Granewall, Burt Drysdale, Russell Hopp, Elaine Rogers, Cheryl Black, Coldwell Banker Rosling Real Estate and our main sponsor Overwaitea Foods.”

Linda Henke walked away with the Low Gross award with a 78, and Low Net went to Castlegars Myrna Boulne with a 66.
