The Oconto Sportsmen's Club Holds its 39th Annual Perch Derby
The Oconto Sportsmen’s Club held its 39th Annual Perch Derby on Friday & Saturday May 24th & 25th at the City Docks in Oconto. This year’s event was well attended, both Friday night, and Saturday, despite the threat of thunderstorms. The club served up a boatload of food during the derby, including the latest addition to our menu - cheese curds! The paddle wheel kept spinning throughout the derby, and well over 100 lucky winners wound up with paddle wheel prizes. The derby ticket raffle cash prize winners were drawn, and our 50/50 cash raffles also had some big winners. Two avid anglers in the youth division won 1st and 2nd Place trophies for the perch they registered into the derby; and the $100 grand prize winner for the biggest perch caught was awarded to an adult, who made a gracious donation back to the club. The Oconto Sportsmen’s Club appreciates your support; and hopes everyone who attended this year’s Perch Derby had a “reel” good time.
