Early registration deadline April 21 for annual Fishin’ for a Mission

The annual Fishin’ for a Mission bass tournament will make the move this year to Lake Dardanelle State Park at Russellville on Saturday, April 28.

Founded by Amanda and Brian Parsons of Conway, the event has raised nearly $8,000 for charity.

“With the help of Centennial Bank as our presenting sponsor, we are able to increase our prize money and move the tournament to Lake Dardanelle State Park,” said Amanda. “It will allow more people to participate and expand our reach for charity.”

This year’s beneficiaries are Soul Food Café Mission in Conway and Community Connections in Russellville.

There is $5,000 in guaranteed cash prizes this year, with free food for participants and spectators at the weigh-in.

The entry fee is $110 per boat, with an increase to $125 after Saturday, April 21. Participants can register online at fish4amission.org/entryform2018/. Late registration will be available the morning of the tournament until 5:45 a.m. at $125 per team.

“We have also partnered with a couple of hotels in Russellville who are offering discounts for anyone attending,” said Amanda.
