PurpleHull Pea Festival Kids' Fishing Derby

The 2011 PurpleHull Pea Festival Kids' Fishing Derby will  be Saturday, June 18, at Mullins' Pond on Hwy 79 on the north side of Emerson.

The 2011 Kids Fishing Derby application be available at the pond the morning of the derby.

Everyone had a great time at the 2010 event except the fish and the worms.

 A big thanks to our 2009 sponsor, Piney Woods Ford and Peek Energy Services, both of Springhill, Louisiana.

  Also a huge thanks to Steve's Marine in Magnolia, and Ark-La Outdoors on U.S. 371, just north of the state line, near Springhill.  Once again, without our sponsors, we'd be up a creek without a fishing pole.

And a big thank you to the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission for providing some special fish to stock the pond prior to the event.

And we thank Arkansas Wildlife Officers Joe Owen and Tom Pointfield for being in attendance and monitoring the event.

We also want to say a special thanks to former Emerson Mayor Joe Mullins and his wife Linda for graciously allowing the festival the use of their pond.

 It's hoped everyone who participated in the 2010 Kids' Fishing Derby will return for the 2011 event.  And, of course, we'd love to have new participants as well.

See you at the 2011 derby!
