AEP employee fishing tournament registration underway

by on April 15, 2011

Spring is here, and for many AEP employees, spring brings another welcome season of fishing. The 20th annual AEP employees´ team fishing tournament will take place from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 4, at Seneca Lake southeast of Cambridge, Ohio.

Twenty-seven teams of competitors in the 2010 AEP employee fishing tournament at Seneca Lake enjoyed the day.

The one-day tournament -– an event organized by employees -– is open to all AEP employees and retirees. At least one member of each two-person team must be an employee or retiree.

Seneca Lake, situated in Guernsey and Noble counties, is the third-largest inland lake in Ohio and is one of Ohio’s top boating and outdoor attractions. The lake is managed by the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District and is home to populations of largemouth, white and striped bass, walleye, yellow perch, crappie, bluegill, bullhead, and channel and flathead catfish.

All money collected in entry fees is returned to the winners in prizes. In 2010, 27 teams from 20 AEP work locations competed for more than $2,856 in prizes.

A representative from each team must attend the pre-tournament meeting at 6 p.m. Friday, June 3, at the Seneca Lake shelter house 3. Conesville Plant is proud to be able to host the pre-meeting and dinner.

Entries will be accepted up to the June 3 pre-tourney meeting. Pre-registration is encouraged by Wednesday, May 4. Additional tournament information and entry forms may be obtained by contacting Sherra Swope at audinet 288-4102 (outside: 740-829-4102) or Ken Fulks, fishing tournament coordinator, at 740-683-2557.
