  • This event is intended to be a fun and enjoyable way to support a great veterans cause. Every effort is being made to make sure we produce an enjoyable event while also supporting vets and following local guidelines.
  • There is an event maximum size of 30 canoes / kayaks, we will need to adhere to this rule while also making sure canoe / kayak capacity is maximized safely.
  • This event is a catch and release event, which means all fish need to be handled in a gentle manner and returned to the water quickly after judging.
  • Farm Pond water clarity is a top priority for the town of Sherborn. As such, boat washing will be required before entering the pond. A boat wash will be provided at the gate. Make sure to get here early to wash your canoe/kayak and maximize your fishing time!
  • All Farm Pond general rules apply. See detailed list here: (no boat permit required however)
