[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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team will add it to the list it is processing.”
