MEREDITH — The 35th Annual Ice Fishing Derby is scheduled for the weekend of February 8-9 and the Meredith Rotary Club is busily providing a variety of bait and tackle stores with derby tickets to sell for the 2014 derby.
In addition to online ticket sales available on their website (www.meredithrotary.org) tickets can be purchased at Wildlife Taxidermy (Manchester), AJ's Bait and Tackle (Meredith) and other local establishments, including Skelley's Market (Moultonboro), Winnipesaukee Dive Shop (Wolfeboro), and Murphy's Mobil (Moultonboro.
The 2014 Fishing Derby has been enhanced to provide all cash prizes for the winning fishermen, and a prize structure (introduced in 2013) that increases the opportunity for each fisherman to win the top prize with the capture of the largest fish in the seven available categories.
"Everyone who purchases a Derby ticket has a chance to win cash prizes," according to Betsey Donovan, Chairman of 2014 Derby. "We have 14 drawings on Saturday for $100 each, and 32 drawings on Sunday for $100 each. Additionally, we have a $5,000 cash drawing on both Saturday and Sunday, so you don't even have to fish to be eligible for these prizes, all you need is a valid Derby ticket."
Late breaking Fishing Derby information is available on the Meredith Rotary Club website and on their Facebook page. During the Derby, updates will be available on the Meredith Rotary Facebook page as well as several radio stations, including 93.3 The Wolf, Rock101 and 100.3 WHEB.
