Plymouth, WI – May 10, 2011
The first tournament of the 2011 AIM Pro Walleye Series was held in Winneconne, Wisconsin on April 20th through the 22nd. Actually, the tournament activities started on Friday, April 18th when the AIM Pro Anglers joined local residents for a fund-raising walk for juvenile diabetes.
The scheduled three day tournament was shortened due to inclement weather. The first day of the tournament was cancelled due to 8 to 10 inches of snow that fell on the area. The Day Two and Day Three weigh-ins were held indoors in the spacious facilities provided by Critters Sports in Winneconne.
The Day Three weigh-in crowned the tournament champion, Tommy Kemos. The event also allowed the AIM tournament organization to give back to the community. Through its partnership with the J. J. Keller Foundation, AIM is the only fishing tournament organization that intentionally seeks to provide a benefit to the host community.
The J. J. Keller Foundation was represented by James and Brian Keller. The Foundation made a presentation of $2,500 to the Wisconsin/Upper Michigan Kiwanis Club. Representing the local Winneconne Kiwanis Club were Dorothy Nimmer and Mike Walter. This grant will be used to promote kid’s outdoor activities in the Winneconne area.
