The Meade Rod and Gun Club, the Fort Meade MWR Outdoor Recreation Branch, and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources will co-sponsor the Youth Fishing Rodeo on a date to be determined in October 2013.
We will need help to move supplies to the lake, with registration, and with food preparation or cleanup. It is a fun event and one of our club's contributions to the Ft. Meade community. The fishing rodeo itself is at Burba Lake, Fort Meade, Maryland and is open to all DOD personnel and their related family members. Interested individuals must have access to Fort Meade via proper DOD identification and DOD vehicle registration. Club member volunteers can enter in the usual manner with drivers license, registration, and proof of insurance card. Event registration will be conducted in Burba Park Cottage.
Contact us if you can be there. Thanks!
