Fishing Derby Snags Big Win


By Tammy Moore Teague
On Saturday, August 4, Mayor Mike Gipson and the City of Mansfield hosted its First Annual Kids Fishing Derby. The event was sponsored by Wal-Mart, Calvert McBride, 10 Box, Sam’s Club, Cockrum’s Meat Market, Amerigas and the Arkansas Game and Fish, who stocked the Mansfield City Lake in preparation for the big event.

The horn, maned by Mansfield Volunteer Fire’s Steven Haysmer, sounded early that morning and kicked off the fishing fun. Boy Scout Troop number 330 was on hand to showcase the organization and promote new members. Mansfield’s Dixie Pawn donated a box full of tackle that was given away in a drawing, and awarded to Cameron Gipson. Volunteers prepared and served food to round out the day.

When the derby ended, AGFC’s Terry McGinister assisted Gipson in awarding the winner’s plaques across three age groups. The volunteers and sponsors made it a special event for all the kids who participated.
