Community Involvement – Trout Fishing, June 28
This post is taking a different direction than usual. I myself, Brian Fitchett, and my company Valley Builders LLC believe in the importance of being involved in the community! I am also an avid hunter and fisherman. For two years now I have held a trout-fishing tournament in Fort Valley for kids of all ages. I say all ages because we have had a lot of adults come out to fish as well. We open it up to kids throughout the Shenandoah Valley that includes Strasburg, Woodstock, Mount Jackson, Toms Brook, New Market and Luray.
We block off a creek in Fort Valley Virginia and stock it with 200 trout! It gives every kid a great opportunity to reel in some fish. This day is about having fun, spending time with friends, family and meeting new people. We had about 35 kids come out this year! I hope it continues to grow each year.
This year it rained the day before so it was a little muddy out there. I am not sure if the kids had more fun fishing or playing in the mud. Overall it was a huge success and I hope to make this an annual tradition. It allows people to have “real” human interactions instead of the common computer interface interaction that we are becoming more accustomed to in recent years.
After the fishing tournament we had a huge covered dish dinner. All of the participants and parents brought a little something so it turned into a flavorful feast of local delicacies. Times like these show me how wonderful life is. I had so much fun interacting and watching these kids/parents fish.
