City of Glen Cove youthful fishing experts, mark your calendar. The Mayor's Snapper Derby is Saturday, Aug. 19 at Pryibil Beach pier, rain or shine. Registration will be held only between 8:15 and 9:30 a.m. Fishing begins 8:30 and continues until 11:30 a.m. The derby has a Junior Division for children ages 6-10 years old and the Senior Division is for children ages 11-16 years old.
There are two important requirements for the snapper derby. You must love to fish and you must have a rod and reel. Each child will receive a Glen Cove Mayor's Snapper Derby T-shirt; hot dog, soda and a raffle ticket for prizes.
Trophies will be awarded in the Junior Division (first, second and third place) and in the Senior Division (first, second and third place). The Best Angler trophy will also be awarded that day. All prizes will be given out at the end of the derby; winners must be present to claim their prize. For more information contact Dr. Tom Manzione at 671-1745 or 759-1140.
