What Some of Our Derby Participants are Saying...

Hi guys!

I'd like to compliment the SWA derby team on running an excellent activity for our club! I didn't catch a qualifying walleye but thought the prize categories created interest for all. The biggest fish of each day and smallest prizes kept things real interesting. Same goes for the mystery weight fish. Keep up the good work and thanks to the kitchen staff at the awards picnic!  Maybe next year I'll catch a weigher.
