Help Roscoe win national contest

May 19, 2011

ROSCOE, NY — Having made it through the first round of the World Fishing Network (WFN) contest to be named the “Ultimate Fishing Town” in the United States, Roscoe now needs help to be awarded the ultimate honor. 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 will continues through May 31.

Voting is done via email by going to www.wfnfishingtown.com. Individuals can 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.

The procedure for first-time voters is to go to www.wfnfishingtown.com and cast a vote for Roscoe. They will receive an e-mail from WFN to verify their e-mail vote, and must respond to the WFN by clicking on the link. The process may be repeated for every e-mail account an individual has. Votes may be cast every six hours until May 31.

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.”
