A total of 8 draw prizes were awarded to participants present at the weigh-in. Thanks to Frank Turnbull for handling this activity while Bob Daley and I were sorting out the winners.

Hot dogs and pop were available to all participants at the weigh-in. Thanks to Ross Bishop and Larry Doan for their culinary expertise.

Special thanks to Duncan Mitchell (Gary’s son) for weighing in all the fish. Any other helpers I missed, my apologies (Gary Mitchell, Gerry Lanteigne, Henry Kock, ?????).

We hope to see everybody again at next year’s Walleye Derby.

Thank You.....Al Dezort
