No LFC Senior Fishing Derby this year

No surprise here, but it's disappointing to all:  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the club is cancelling the derby this year.  It had been scheduled for Sept. 16 at Flatiron Reservoir.

Kathy Barker, this year's chair, says the club plans to resume the annual competition in 2021.

The decision was made after previous chair Ray Park talked over the situation with management of several assisted living centers in Loveland.

Scene from the 2019 derby.
The event for Loveland assisted living center residents has been a tradition since 2011. The derby remains, we think, this nation’s only free fishing derby focused on  community's assisted living center residents, run by and for seniors. Other Loveland seniors are welcome, but the primary invited guests are residents of about 10 assisted living centers.
