2020 ALSC Fishing Derby Canceled?

The Angle Lake Shore Club mission states that we are an organization that provides unique events year-round for the residents living on and around the shores of Angle Lake in an effort to build a stronger community. 

The goal of the Angle Lake Shore Club is to bring people together to create a strong sense of community. However, in light of the global pandemic and to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, at this time we are sensitive toward keeping our community safe by keeping people apart. Therefore, while the Governor's Stay Home, Stay Healthy Order remains in place the Board has determined that postponing the Fishing Derby is the necessary thing to do.
Will COVID-19 Force An Event Cancellation?
It is devastating to think that our long-standing annual tradition may be forced to cancel. It is our hope that we can have the Fishing Derby later this year. Being one of our largest, most labor-intensive activities of the year it requires at least 45 days to produce this event. If organizers are successful in recruiting additional volunteers to help with ticket sales; purchasing food; and procuring raffle prizes the lead time could be reduced by a couple weeks. Depending on the date when social distancing will be lifted, a decision will be made if the event can be hosted later in the year or will result in the cancelation of the event for 2020.  

We will continue to monitor all health and governmental updates and if a safe opportunity presents itself for a Fishing Derby later in 2020, we will make every effort to uphold this treasured tradition.
