2021 brought us yet another challenge, this year was a Global Pandemic. With the safety of our volunteers and participants as our priority, we decided it was best to cancel our big Derby in Selkirk and move to a Virtual Derby. This allowed people from all of Manitoba to participate and fish on any body of water. With the purchase of a ticket online, each participant was entered into all of our draws whether they caught a fish or not.
Being Virtual brought us to 5 different communities in Manitoba. From St. Norbert and Selkirk on the Red River to Sandy Bar in Riverton, to Gimli and to Balsam Bay on Lake Winnipeg. We were available to drill holes and offer ice shelters to families who have never participated before. We handed out ice fishing rods to the kids that came and checked in with us and asked that participants send in pictures of being out enjoying time with family to enter into more draws.
Thank you to all our Volunteers and to all our sponsors for making this year a success even through a pandemic. Thank you to all participants for always making it “All About The Kids”
