Fish-O-Rama registration opens Wednesday

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Registration for the 12th annual Fish-O-Rama begins Wednesday at noon at Manhattan Pavilion of Robbins Lake in Cedar Rapids.

The event takes place this weekend at Robbins Lake, off the corner of Edgewood Road and Ellis Boulevard.

Other registration times include Thursday, noon to 8 p.m. and Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Participants can also register online at http://www.bgccr.org/special-events/fishorama.aspx.

A basic registration of $10 allows fishing both Saturday and Sunday and includes a chance to win a variety of prizes. A bonus registration for $25 can also be purchased to win additional prizes. This year's grand prize is a 2014 Toyota Tundra pickup; other prizes include bikes, televisions, scooters and gift cards. All registrants receive a t-shirt and goodie bag, pending availability.

"Fish-O-Rama is an event where families, large and small, can be together, enjoy the outdoors and have an opportunity to catch a prize," John Tursi said, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Cedar Rapids.

"Without Fish-O-Rama, we could not provide the variety of programs to the 300 kids who attend our Clubs daily."

All proceeds from the event directly support daily programming at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cedar Rapids.
