It’s an angler’s dream: spend the day crappie fishing, compete with other anglers and help a good cause. The Special Olympics Kansas (SOK) will host a crappie tournament Saturday, April 20. The event will take place at Clinton Reservoir near Lawrence and is open to all anglers. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the SOK, a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering intellectually disabled individuals through sports training and athletic competition.
Participants can compete individually or in two-angler teams and will weigh in their 10 biggest crappie. Prizes will be awarded to the top anglers, as well as for the largest crappie caught.
Participants sign-in from 5:30 a.m. – 6:30 a.m. and the tournament will run 7:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. A pre-registration fee of $80 per team is due by April 12, or teams can pay $100 the morning of the event.
The tournament is open only to boat anglers. For more information and to obtain a tournament registration form, waiver, and complete list of rules, visit www.ksso.org/events, or contact Kim Brice at (785) 424-0830 or email@example.com.
