Tickets will be picked up a couple of days prior to the event so sign ups can be logged. You can buy as many as you want. Every person on a derby boat must have a ticket. When you purchase the ticket you will recieve 2 pages of rules with it. Lip RIpper

LipRipper,

Thank for all of your hard work. clap:
You picked a good place for a derby this time of the year. Even if the wind blows, there will be good sheltered fishing areas for every possible wind direction.
