July President Message

It’s July! I hope everyone’s having a great summer. I want to thank all the volunteers who are helping run the club. We still need help for our Derby on August 3rd, specifically for setting up and cleaning up at the awards. Please let me know if you can help.

Our 28th annual Derby on August 3rd starts at daylight and ends at 1 pm. The weigh station is open from 8 am to 1 pm at the Point Defiance Boat House, with the awards ceremony at 3 pm.

The top three prizes are: 1st place – $3,000, 2nd place – $2,000, and 3rd place – $1,000. Thanks to Beau Mac Enterprises/SMI for donating the 1st place prize money. The raffle’s grand prize is a Lowrance Fish finder. Check our website https://gigharborpsa.org for more derby prize details. Derby tickets are $40 this year. Even if you can’t fish, buying a ticket makes you eligible for raffle prizes. There’s no limit on the number of tickets you may purchase.

Our July board meeting is on July 2nd at 6 pm at Ben Dew’s Club House, 6501 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA 98406.

Our next general meeting is on Wednesday, July 10th at 7 pm at Tower Lanes, 6323 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA. Art Tachell will speak about where to fish on derby day. We’ll hold a membership drawing sponsored by John Haggard of Southworth Marine during the meeting. Remember, you must be present to win and have paid your 2024 dues.

Hope to see everyone there!
