Many thanks to Erics Pro Tackle in Wallaceburg for supplying the worms (personal delivery) – they were put to good use.  Also a big thank you to Dairy Queen, Boston Pizza and The Outdoorsman for their generosity with prizes. There was excellent help provided by BWA directors and members in helping make this event successful – setting up and taking down the canopy and table, distributing the worms, cooking the ‘dogs’, getting supplies, counting gobies (phew), helping the young anglers, measuring fish, taking photos etc etc.I don’t want to miss anyone inadvertently, so I won’t attempt to name names, but you know who you are.
