He will weigh your fish in Saturday and Sunday until 8 PM, when the scales close. He also continues to offer his sourdough pancakes on Sunday morning starting at 8 AM. Then through the day hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. will be available.Thanks to all the volunteers who help with making the Derby successful. Also thanks to the many businesses and organizations that contribute prizes for the awards that go to the lucky fishers.Copper Bay will be the fishing and social centre for the weekends, Sept. 20-Oct. 12.
