Brookfields' Lions Club
30th Annual Ice Fishing Derby
Saturday - January 26, 2019
Weigh-Ins 7:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
30 Years! We are very excited this year to offer a 2018 CF-MOTO 400 4-Wheel Drive ATV, as our grand prize, this will be a huge event. All Around Power Equipment of St. Johnsbury, VT has teamed up with us to offer this exciting prize. The Brookfields' Lions Club wish to thank All Around Power Equipment for working with us to make this 4-Wheeler available to you as part of our derby. Thank you to everyone who has helped support our ice fishing derby classic over the years. Remember that we have a one fish per category per ticket rule. You can look at the success it has had by noticing all the different winners in our fish categories. It spreads out more money evenly. Pleas take the time to read our flyer for our minimum lengths required before bringing in your fish. Our lengths are much larger than the state requirements.
The children's division, which is to age 12, will be under the rule of only one fish per category per ticket. This will also help disperse the prizes out to more children. In the children's division we are going to use the state minimum lengths to assure our awarding all prizes, consisting of "fishing gear". The children will still have to meet the derby minimum lengths tp compete in the adult division. For example, the state requires a 12" bass length for a keeper, while we have an 18" minimum for our derby length. This will allow our young angler who catches a 15" bass to compete for the children division, but it doesn't have the minimum for our derby. If a child brings in an 18" bass, then they would also have a chance for the leader board prize money. The children's derby has a 2:00 p.m. closing to free up some time for the 3:30 p.mp closing of the derby.
CHILDREN'S PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED AT 2:30 P.M.

We will have WARE 1250AM broadcasting a live update for the leader board weights. Please listen to this station as they will broadcast hourly updates for minimum lengths to surpass fish already weighed in. This is a tremendous conservation benefit allowing the fish to be released back into their own waters instead of bringing to the weigh station.. The broadcast updates will be from Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. UPDATE OF ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON WARE RADIO 1250 AT 5:00 P.M.
THERE IS NO NO CELL PHONE HOTLINE, WARE RADIO WILL ANNOUNCE UPDATEES ON THE LEADER BOARD WEIGHTS
Please take the time to use these services as releasing as many fish as possible, this helps guarantee future possibilities of catching that TROPHY FISH in years ahead. Winners will be posted on our website www.brookfieldslionsclub.org. If you don't have access to a computer, the winners will be sent to all our store vendor locations.

This derby is a large undertaking by our club. Hundreds of hours are spent each year along with a heavy financial commitment by our club with no guarantee of recouping our investment. Please help support our event by purchasing a ticket ahead of time. The Brookfields' Lions Club depends heavily on this fundraiser to be able to give to our communities. Monies raised will be spent by helping many less fortunate who depend greatly on our contributions. Please remember to get your vehicles off the road, be courteous to our neighbors and pick up after youself and after someone else that may be less conscientious. Have a GREAT day and we'll see you at the boat ramp. Thank You! Good Luck To Everyone. FLAG UP!
