We can pass the baton and help kids get involved in a sport that we all love by donating a couple bucks to help salmon Unlimited this year with their derby.

Every little bit helps so large or small your donation will help.

Please use the PayPal link below the SU banner on the main forums page (upper left hand side) if you would like to help out.

and for all of you that do, thank you very much!

Marc, the link is not opening for me. I receive a "Fatal Failure" message on blank screen.

I put the derby info, and the link to the registration flier on KLove.com
for them to announce it on air


I believe Lake county's 102.3 XLC might do announcements as well. Let me know if you'd like me to submit it there as well.

IvoryLotus, Great job - run with the idea! (love the screan name, how's the garden?)

Meet and got some help from a few good people today.

Barry Gilbert, MDV at the Waukegan USCG aux gave us a box full of coloring books and kid safety - boater education stuff. Including some PFD Panda awards to give out to the kids wearing them. Thanks to them! :thanks

Full Throttle Marine in Lake Bluff http://fullthrottlemarine.net/ donated $150 and some T-shirts. Planning to do much more next year. Love the events that help - make the kids happy. :thanks

Jeff Cribb from Cribb Fine Foods in Waukegan. Will be helping out. Great meat! Family owned and operated for more than 70 years! :thanks

Seems like it will be the best year yet for the Derby! Let's hope Mother Nature and the Fish favor the cause too! :allah

Best Regards to all helping,
Rod

Between multiple listings in the lake county sun, klove, and handouts I have a feeling this is going to be even bigger than last year! The weather is looking good!

Thanks to everyone! We all had a great time.

It was a great way for team Greenmachine to end the tournament season as we came home with the award for smallest fish - a .1 ounce gobie! My youngest / 'non fisherman' son stalked the beast and put it on the dock. I couldn't be prouder :wink: Actually, we tied for the honor (I think with team Jawzon). We had it in the bag as we bottomed out the scale.

Lots of fun. Will be looking forward to next year.

This really was a great family outing, thanks to all who helped and brought their kids out. Just a fine way to end the year.
