These Professionals will be matched with the Slamateurs by random draw on Sept 9th upstairs at the Skylark Lounge. Don’t miss the intense excitement of this annual phenomenon exceeded only by the mass hysteria accompanying the drawing of the teams morning and afternoon Denver South Platte beats.

Denver Trout Unlimited Announces New Sponsors of 10th Annual Carp Slam

Non-profit raises funds for water quality in Denver with help of local businesses.

DENVER, COLO. (April 21, 2016) — Denver Trout Unlimited announces new sponsors to support their 10th Annual Carp Slam event, a pro-am fly fishing tournament and celebration to be held on the South Platte River on September 10, 2016.  Joining to support water quality and quantity initiatives in Denver’s urban environment are: ECI Site Construction Management, Davis Graham and Stubbs, The Moskal Group of Merrill Lynch, Matrix Design Group, National Wildlife Federation, Loghouse Books, Dream Stream Designs, Wright Water Engineers and Big Red F Restaurant Group.  Denver Trout Unlimited continues to welcome new sponsors.

Denver Trout Unlimited is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers dedicated to improving the quality and quantity of the water in the South Platte River. For ten years, Carp Slam has been Denver TU’s annual fly fishing tournament fundraiser. After a day on the river, competitors and supporters alike come together for “An Evening on the South Platte,” including an awards ceremony, live music, silent auction, food and drink.

“We are proud to welcome our first round of sponsors onboard for Carp Slam X,” says Aaron Kindle, President of Denver TU. “Carp Slam is a wonderful joining of several Denver communities; the fishing community, the river community, and the Denver community at large who appreciate our river and want to see it healthy and thriving,” he continues.  Funds raised for Carp Slam by corporate sponsors and tournament participants are used for a variety of projects that improve the Denver South Platte aquatic habitat, water quality and water quantity, including restorations, studies and educational events. Denver TU’s members implement all projects.

Kindle adds, “for our tenth anniversary, we look forward to using Carp Slam to showcase our home river and success story of its revitalization; we still have sponsorships available so that more corporations can join in support of our efforts.” Denver TU offers a number of sponsorship levels for businesses and individuals to get involved in support of the local aquatic environment.
