Upcoming June Events at the KR&G

June brings two big events at the Kent Rod & Gun Club and we hope both will be well-supported by our membership.

First, our Spring Raffle will be at our next General Membership Meeting on Friday, June 1st..8 p.m.   

Next, a favorite club event for the kids is our Annual Pan Fish Derby which will be on Sunday, June 24th, rain or shine!  Everyone is welcome...families and friends of the Kent Rod & Gun Club.   Grab a pole, a few kids and head out to your best fishing spot, then return to the clubhouse at 12:00 sharp for weigh-in.  After that, it's prizes and lunch for everyone!


We will need an accurate head-count for this event so everyone is asked to respond as soon as possible and let us know how many will be attending.
