Here are pics of the Sport Shack we are giving away to a 2 Day registered Angler - if you are registered for 2 days you will automaticlly be entered for the drawing - DO NOT have to be present to win. The logos are from the Diamond Sponsors of the derby - these businesses have supplied the finanacial and logistcal support we need to make this derby happen. It is because of their dedication and generosity to the derby that we are able to provide prizes like this to our anglers, while raising money for the Edgar J Paradis Cancer Fund.
