The Robinson Memorial derby was held on May 24 at Ludwick Lake. Despite wind and cool whether, everyone had a good time. A minute of silence was held for Keith and Rick before the prizes were awarded.

The winners were: Marlene Robinson for the Biggest Fish trophy. For the Most Weight (2 fish weighed in) were: 1st – Marlene Robinson, 2nd – Justin Robinson, and 3rd – Clifford Robinson.

Actually, we had other fishermen besides the Robinson’s, but they seemed to find the hot spot and hot hook that day.

The Family prize-Fly Rod combo package was Kim Herzig. Hidden Weights: a framed print, which was donated by Cliff and Marlene Robinson, was won by Ed White. A fly rod, donated by Hatch Match’r Fly shop in Maple Ridge, was won by Noel Ashley.

The 50/50 draw was won by Butch Ashley and the cooler raffle, by Cliff Lindley.

All participants got prizes from the prize table by random ticket draws.

The Robinson family would like to thank everyone who attended and helped out.

Thanks to Otter Valley Fish & Game club, Anne and Ron Jones, Match’r Fly shop and Ruth at the liquor store for the donations. Altogether it made for a great day.

See you all next year.

Come on out and enjoy the Pike Mountain Derby on June 7 and 8. Watch for posters around town, done by Charlene Anderson’s grade 7 class at Vermilion Forks Elementary School.
