The Nashua-based bass fishing club, the New Hampshire Last Cast Club, has been hosting fishing tournaments in Nashua for the past seven years.  After growing from 20 participants to now over 160 the fishing club grew out of their old location and sought a larger venue to host their fishing tournaments for children 12 and under.

After contacting the Friends of Benson Park Committee, both organizations were very excited to put on a Kids Fishing Derby from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for Hudson locals.  On Saturday, June 7, thanks to the generosity of several sporting goods suppliers and the time and commitment of the club members, the fishing tournament was not only free of charge but also included free food, raffle prizes, medals for all participants and much more.  Donations were accepted, however, they were given right back to the Friends of Benson Park Committee.
