This is the 3rd year for the Kids Can Fish event at the Kenora Winter Carnival. Jay Samsal & Troy Norman are both Cabela’s Pro Staff members that do a number of PR events around Ontario and Manitoba.
A few year ago they presented Cabela’s with the idea of introducing a kids ice fishing event in our community. The first year they capped the event at 40 kids and filled it up in a few days. Last year they capped it off at 80 kids and filled up in 4 days.
This year they are aiming for 120 kids. This event is 100% free for all the kids and their families to enjoy. With the help of our sponsors, every kid receives a rod and reel combo for the day—and take home with them. There are a tonne of prizes for the top finishers, as well as Tim Horton’s hot chocolate and donuts for the kids.
This year Jay & Troy would especially like to thank their newest sponsor, the Dingwall Group: Woodlake Marine, Bayview Toyota, and Dingwall Ford.
Thanks to Cabela’s and the Dingwall Group for sponsoring this event!
