A children's fishing rodeo and a fundraising run and bicycle race scheduled this weekend for Camp Jordan have been postponed because of potential flooding.

"If predicted accurately, the upcoming rainfall for this weekend will likely force the creek to exceed the banks and flood Camp Jordan Parkway," Cpl. Robert Wade of the East Ridge Police Department said in a news release.

The East Ridge Optimists Club/Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency Kids' Fishing Rodeo at Dickert Pond has been postponed until May 11 with registration set for 8:30 am. All kids old enough to hold a fishing pole are invited to fish for free from 8:30 until noon May 11th.

The East Ridge Optimist Club will offer fishing, prizes, refreshments, lunch, and fun for all in the area who attend. The TWRA has stocked the pond with catfish and will be there to help conduct the event.

The Choices Pregnancy 5k run and 10k bicycle race has been postponed, and the entertainment rally has been moved to Chattanooga Church.
