The Bergen Bassmasters and the Bergen County and Ridgewood Parks and Recreation, are seeking support for our annual outing for the disabled fishing event.

This event will be held on Saturday, June 2, 2018. (Rain or Shine). This is our 30th year! The location will again be held at Darlington Park in Mahwah, NJ. The time of the outing is from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

For the past twenty nine years, we have had participants from the ARC of Bergen and Passaic Counties, Spectrum for Living, the Handicapped Boy Scouts of America, Big Wheels of Westwood, HIP in Hackensack, Cerebral Palsy of North Jersey, and other groups in the Bergen County area. Bergen Bassmasters has received the ESPN/Bassmasters “National Chapter of the Year for the Special Events Category” in 2005.

In past years, we have received several awards from the State of NJ for the clubs contribution to our state’s disabled community. We accepted these honors on behalf of our club and all the sponsors that have participated over these past twenty plus years. This tournament has become a blueprint for other clubs nationwide to start their own “Fishing Outing for the Disabled.” We thank you in advance for all of your support!
