Cadet Fishing Tournament for 2020 is CANCELED

Yankee Springs State Park • Gun Lake • Michigan

Mid-way between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo, Michigan
Don’t miss this fun event for a great cause … register today! The purpose of the tournament is to raise funds for the Calvinist Cadet Corps through registration fees and pledges collected by registered fishermen. As a non-profit organization, Cadets depends on donations by churches and individuals, and fund-raisers such as this tournament.


Event Information
Registration entitles you to participate in a half-day of tournament fishing, followed by a great lunch. Prizes will be awarded … for the largest game fish, for the most game fish caught by weight, for the most fish caught (quantity), and various other categories … some funny, and maybe even some for just being there!

When & Where
The 2020 Fishing Tournament has been canceled due to concerns related to COVID-19.

Registered fishermen are to meet in Yankee Springs State Park on Gun Lake (Michigan) and may fish from 8:00 AM until noon. More information will be sent to each fisherman after his registration form is received.

Event Fees
Registration, which includes lunch, is only $50 per fisherman. Any fisherman 12 years old or under is only $25. Registration is free with $500 in paid pledges. With $250 in paid pledges, registration is $20; or we offer $10 off registration with five paid pledges of any amount. All fishermen must also have a Michigan fishing license — daily, weekly or seasonal. (Registration fee reimbursement or discount will be given after the fishing tournament, following the receipt of your paid pledges.)

You are encouraged to raise support for Cadets by obtaining:
– pledges based on the total number of fish you catch (even the little ones that you throw back)
– donations, not based on any fish you catch All pledge checks for the tournament should be made payable to Cadets.

You’re invited to come for a great time of fun, fishing, and competition … all for a great cause — the Calvinist Cadet Corps! Hope to see lots of you there!

Please send your pledges and donations to:
