The 5th Annual North Thompson Fish and Game Club’s Father’s Day Fishing Derby was once again a great success.  Sixty-six fish were brought in for weighing on Sunday afternoon at the Bandshell in Barriere, where anglers and attendees could get out of the rain, have a hot or cold refreshment, and warm up by a portable heater.

Tents were provided by club members George, Ben and Kathy; while the propane heater came courtesy of Bryan Smith.

The rain and inclement weather didn’t deter anyone from the event, and the sun even managed to pop out for a few minutes during the presentations.

Thanks to Kathy Campbell for keeping track of the weights and compiling the list of those who got to take home a prize.

Winners of the Derby were:

1st – Severen Roberge

2nd – went to the parent and child combo of Rob Wittner Jr, and Nick

3rd – Donna Krum

4th – Rob Wittner Sr.

Largest Non- Rainbow – Mel Schmidt

Everyone who participated received a prize. Their names were called from a draw, and they were able to choose the prize of their choice from a table loaded with angler merchandise.

Mayor Humphreys drew the three winners of the Club’s annual raffle.  First  prize of an outboard motor went to Ryan Zrinski of Salmon Arm; 2nd prize of a block carving set went to Bill Nelson of 100 Mile House, and 3rd prize of a Stihl chainsaw goes to Stephen Leonard of Clearwater.

“Rain or shine we all had an awesome time,” said Kathy Campbell.
