ALEXANDRIA, VA (May 16, 2008) – Aquatic educators now have a great new resource to help with boating and fishing events. The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF) today announced that an updated Take Me Fishing Event Planning Kit is now available to stakeholders.
Re-designed to incorporate the new look and feel from the national Take Me Fishing campaign and TakeMeFishing.org Web site, the customizable materials can be used to plan events during National Fishing and Boating Week (June 1 – 8, 2008) and throughout the year.
“We encourage all of our stakeholders to take advantage of these free planning resources to leverage the national Take Me Fishing campaign,” said RBFF President and CEO Frank Peterson. “Hosting an event is a great way to share the joys of boating and fishing with your community and introduce families to a lifetime of recreation. Boating and fishing events also help increase participation nationwide, which ultimately fund conservation projects through fishing license sales and the purchase of tackle and motorboat fuel.”
The Event Planning Kit materials include:
To encourage national conservation efforts, RBFF is providing the Event Planning Kit on CD-Rom. For more information or to request a copy of the Kit, please visit RBFF.org.
RBFF is a nonprofit organization established in 1998 to increase participation in recreational angling and boating. RBFF helps people discover, share and protect the legacy of boating and fishing through national outreach programs including the Take Me Fishing campaign and Anglers’ Legacy.
