Father’s day fishing derby a great success!

Binche Keyoh’s 2nd annual event attended by hundreds

“We had 395 participants versus last year’s 331 and we hope to come back even bigger next year,” says organiser Paul Haskell.

On Saturday there was a BBQ for all participants, approximately 125 people attended.

On Sunday afternoon the event was closed off by giving away prizes to all the kids who participated. Kids who weighed in a fish were the first to pick out a prize based on their ranking. Then they began announcing the winners. Similar to last year, there was a husband and wife placed in the prize money.

There were many volunteers across Stuart Lake at four different weigh stations, and some participants even pitched in to help with the BBQ.

“We want to thank everyone who came and participated, and of course a big thanks to all of our sponsors that made it possible! Fund raising events like this really helps Binche Keyoh with providing services and hosting events for our community.” said Haskell.
