Eli Goss Annual Ice Fishing Tournament Ready for Fourth Year

in Feature/News

MORGAN — The Fourth Annual Eli Goss Ice Fishing Tournament will take place on Lake Seymour in Morgan, February 21,22,23.

The idea for the First Eli Goss Memorial Ice Fishing Tournament came from a meeting of the NCUHS Student Forum after the sudden loss of their friend Eli in a motor vehicle accident on September 17, 2010. 

The students met in the forum to share their struggle with all the tough feelings and questions they were faced with in the aftermath of the accident that took their closest friend.  Ice fishing was a special part of their life together and the idea was born to create an ice fishing tournament in Eli’s honor and to raise money for the Scholarship Fund in his name at United Christian Academy, where Eli attended school.

Registration will be at the Public Beach Fishing Access, with a $10 donation. Cash prize will be awarded to the winner.

Eli Trophy Bomber hats will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize fish. There will also be gifts and awards for fund raising and donation. For more information call (802) 673-8931, or click here to visit the event web page.
