‘ULTIMATE FISHING TOWN’

Roscoe Needs Regular Help in Final Voting for National Contest

May 10, 2011

[ROSCOE] – Roscoe is looking for voters to help it win the World Fishing Network (WFN) contest as the "Ultimate Fishing Town" in the United States.  The winning community will receive $25,000 to improve fishing access, as well as a cable TV episode about the town.   The final voting round began at 12:00 noon on May 10 and continues through May 31.

Already known as “Trout Town, USA” – Roscoe is considered the birthplace of the American Dry Fly Fishing, developed by Theodore Gordon and his followers.  A two-hour drive from New York City, Roscoe is home to the junction of two trophy trout streams, the Willowemoc and the Beaverkill, in addition to many nearby lakes, ponds and reservoirs.

Voting is done via email by going to www.wfnfishingtown.com and following a simple procedure.  Individuals are able to vote four times a day (once each in specific blocks of time) for each e-mail address they have.  Those who voted in the first round are already registered.

First time voters need to follow a set of directions.

  1. Go to www.wfnfishingtown.com and cast a vote for Roscoe
  2. Individuals will receive an e-mail from WFN to verify their e-mail vote – and must respond to the WFN by clicking on the link
  3. This process may be repeated for every e-mail account an individual has
  4. Votes may be cast every six hours until May 31st

Elaine Fettig, President of the Roscoe-Rockland Chamber of Commerce, said there’s help for individuals who want to vote regularly, “Understanding that people are busy and may not be able to process multiple votes per day, we’ve set up a team of volunteers to assist.  After individuals have taken the initial steps and been verified by WFN, simply forward the name and e-mail address used to vote to info@roscoeny.com.  Our team will add it to the list it is processing.”

For more information on how to participate with the Roscoe Chamber, contact Elaine Fettig at 845-439-4039 or ElaineMFettig@aol.com

Roscoe has been a participant in the Sullivan Renaissance program since it began in 2001, and has received awards for several of its yearly projects, including two $50,000 Golden Feather Grants from New York State secured by Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  For more information, call 845-295-2445.
