MEREDITH -- The Meredith Rotary Club has stocked a variety of bait and tackle stores with Derby tickets to sell for the 2015 Ice Fishing Derby scheduled to take place during the weekend of Feb. 7-8.
In addition to online ticket sales available on their website (www.meredithrotary.org) tickets can be purchased at Wildlife Taxidermy in Manchester, AJ's Bait and Tackle in Meredith, and other local establishments, including Skelley's Market in Moultonborough, Winnipesaukee Dive Shop in Wolfeboro, and Murphy's Mobil in Moultonborough.
The 36th annual Ice Fishing Derby is scheduled for the weekend of February 7-8. A full list of participating vendors can be found on the Meredith Rotary website, under Fishing Derby/Where to Buy a Derby Ticket.
The 2015 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 Craig Wiggin, Chairman of 2015 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 its Facebook page. During the Derby, updates will be available on the Meredith Rotary Facebook page, as well as several radio stations.
