The Cheaha District of the Boy Scouts of America hosts a Cub Scout Fishing Rodeo from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the camp.
Registration for the event begins at 8 a.m. and costs $15 for an adult and Cub Scout. The event price includes lunch.
The event is expected to draw between 150-200 children from throughout the Cheaha District, covering Clay, Randolph and Talladega counties.
“This is our first big event of the fall,” Cheaha District Executive Tommy Ritch said.
If the children aren’t enrolled in Cub Scouts, there’s no need to worry. Ritch stated applications are available during the registration period.
“Any children who would like to participate in Cub Scouts can sign up at the event, and we’ll be able to link them up with a Pack or Troop from their area,” Ritch said.
At the conclusion of the rodeo, trophies are given in each Cub Scout age category for “Biggest Fish,” “Smallest Fish” and “Ugliest Fish.” The Cub Scouts also have an opportunity to win door prizes.
The age groups include first-grade Tiger Cubs, second-grade Wolf Cubs, third-grade Bear Cubs and fourth- and fifth-grade Webelos.
According to Ritch, enrollment for Cub Scouts remains open throughout the year, and Scouts can participate in a number of events throughout the year, including the annual Pinewood Derby in winter, various camps during the summer and a number of community service projects throughout the year.
