This past weekend, I spent some time with family at my aunt and uncle's house in Okahumpka, FL. When I arrived in town, I was expecting some quality catch-up time, a little football and some food. When I opened the door, I almost didn't recognize the interior of the house. There were high-chairs, toys, diaper bags and kids everywhere. In total, there were 10 kids running through the house like it was on fire. Don't get me wrong, I love kids and I love watching them be kids - especially when it's not my house that's being destroyed! I'll admit that after some time inside witnessing the madness, I was getting a little bit claustrophobic.
Since taking this position, I've had many conversations regarding getting "new blood" into the sport. With all the indoor options that kids have today such as ipods, xbox's, television etc., etc., it's not always easy to get them outside. So, I figured I'd give my aunt and uncle a little break and take the kids down to the dock and give them a quick casting demo and hopefully spark their interest.
