In 2007 members the Oshkosh Southwest Rotary came together to create this trademark event after seeing the growing issue of youths being stuck behind a television or computer screen. They decided to rally the community to help fund efforts to get youths up, outdoors and involved in local conservation efforts. Since its inception, Battle on Bago has raised close to $500,000 and given it back to the community. Thanks to the community and sponsors of the event.
The Otter Street Fishing Club was involved in the event also and everything can be seen at the website for the event at https://www.battleonbago.org/.
