By now you all know that the Derby was a success. I want to congratulate Jim and Brian on organizing such a great event. The entire committee is to be applauded for all their hard work to ensure the success of our Derby.

We held an abbreviated awards ceremony on Sunday, June 28th which was held on Facebook live. You can view the awards here on our Facebook page. We awarded the contestants with the heaviest fish in the youth division and in the adult division. We also awarded the Calcutta winners. The list of the top 200 fish by weight is also on the website. If you were lucky enough to win a prize or a check and do not have it, we will be at the club from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 21st and again on Wednesday, August 5th to hand out the checks and prizes. Please bring your derby entry form for verification of your prize(s). If your winnings are over $600, you must come to the club and fill out the necessary documentation to receive your check.

At this time, we are still hoping to be able to have a meeting before the end of the summer. Unfortunately, we can only have 25% of our hall capacity at any time in the building. This makes it impossible to conduct business since we need 65 members to make a quorum. We are hopeful that the capacity limits will be raised before the end of the summer. Watch the website and Facebook for further updates.

If you have any club questions, please feel free to leave me a message on the club phone (716-649-8202) and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
