  • Oct. 12, 2009 10:00 a.m.

submitted by the Sandspit Rod and Gun Club-What a great coho derby! Tremendous weather, a good run of coho, lots of interest and participation by all ages, genders, locals and visitors, awesome support and contributions for prizes and a great crew of volunteers who made it happen for the 56th time.Needless to say, there was lots of competition in all categories (for those who didn’t make the final standings, there is next year). The leaderboard was in constant change and the last weekend witnessed quite a few. There was tension among the leaders right up to the 8 pm scale closing. This year’s winner is a young guy who has steadily moved up the leaderboard over the years. He is a determined and dedicated participant and we hope to see him in the derby for years to come. Mid-afternoon on the last day Tyler weighed in the big fish and was hovering around the leaderboard at 8 pm to see if it was going to stand up to the last arrivals. It did, and it is now in the book. Way to go Tyler!2009 Final Standings1) Tyler Zeller 18 lbs 13 oz2) Alex Matson 18 lbs 9 oz3) Jon Hunter 16 lbs 11 oz4) Bev Collinson 16 lbs 1 oz5) Gary Hatfield 15 lbs 13 oz6) Behn Cochrane 15 lbs 11 oz7) Chris Diebold 14 lbs 15 oz8) Les Wourms 14 lbs 5 oz9) Ryan Kranrod 13 lbs 14 oz10) Jeremy Botel 13 lbs 13 ozTop Lady1) Bev Collinson 16 lbs 1 oz2) Clara Zeller 13 lbs 7 ozJunior1) Jhett Collinson 16 lbs 8 oz2) James Parker 14 lbs 1 oz3) Kieanna Diebold 12 lbs 8 ozFish weighed in: 39Derby total: 186A coho derby isn’t possible without a lot of volunteer help. The community really supports this annual event and it truly reflects the Spirit of the Coho sculpture. A special thanks to the seniors group for their tremendous help at the ‘Shack’.Copper Bay is the centre of the derby and chef-weighmaster Ray K. kept it going with style and taste. The sourdough pancakes and hamburgers were a big hit again this year.The derby awards dinner will be held Nov. 14 where the prizes and the ‘2009 bragging rights’ will be presented. Thanks to all the organizers, participants, volunteers, and contributors who continue to make this a tremendous annual event. See you at the derby awards dinner and dance.
