Thanks to everyone who came out for the ice derby. Congrats to 8 year old Aiden Butler for biggest bass, and that guy from Shirley whos name I cant remember for biggest pickerel. hopefully someday we'll see our boats again
A couple updates. Just checked the pond. There is only ankle deep snow on it so the derby will be on. Also the address on the application page to send your money was wrong. Dont send a check to the White tail circle address. Send it to the new one up there, give it to me or Mike directly, or bring it to the first event
Tournament Schedule page is updated

We've decided to go smaller and will have the derby on Round Meadow Pond. The format and payout will be the same as last year, just a smaller venue. You are encouraged to get there early as we will allow the holes to be drilled prior to the start. Tip ups in at seven when the horn sounds. From either direction on Rte 2 take exit 25. The pond touches the West bound lane. Cant miss it. All members are encouraged to attend. Even if you dont ice fish, come hang out and lend a hand. See you there!
Sorry for the long break without any updates. This year we are going to change it up a bit. Instead of a 10 tourney season, we are going to do an 8 tourney season with a big money event to close the year. Dues will be the same as last year. $50 a member for club dues, $500 a team entry fees paid prior to the first tourney($600 per team). You can send me your money any time you want, or bring it to the first event. It looks like we will have 10 boats this year and some real nice payouts. The schedule page has not been updated because we are still waiting to hear back from NH on their permits. We submitted them in October, and they take forever. I can tell you for sure the first three will be in Mass and they will be Manchaug Pond in Sutton, Sunday May 3. A-1 in Westboro, Saturday May 16. Ct River Northfield, Sunday June 14. The next four are NH and we should hear from them any day. Hopefully they will be Powder Mill Pond in Hancock NH, Sunday June 28. Stumpfield Marsh in Hopkinton NH will be our only night tourney on Friday July 31. August will be Lake Monomonac in Rindge NH. And September will be Great Pond in Kingston NH, then Lake Wampanoag(Camp Collier) to end the season. I will hold a meeting, or get in touch with everybody sometime in March to go over the big money end of the year event. Id like to go somewhere new that nobody knows, or somewhere familiar that everyone does so nobody has an advantage. So start thinking of places you like.
