2018 Cast-Away Fishing Derby

We held our 3nd Annual Cast Away Fishing Derby today,We had a few rain delays but everything went well as we had another great turn out considering the weather and all the kids got to catch multiple fish. Special thanks to the MCI Employee Activities Committee for suppling us with food and fishing poles for the kids.
I would also like to thank Gerry Bowes, Scotty Fuqua II, Donald Fyffe, Dave Eberle and Clayton Campo for volunteering to help out with this event, without volunteers like you guys, we wouldn’t be able to hold these type of events.
