Esterhazy and District Lions Club has announced the 18th annual ice fishing derby. The event is being held on February 14th at Bird’s Point, Round Lake, and this year it is renamed as “Lion Charlie Smith Memorial Fish Derby.” Charlie, who passed away in 2015, was a great Lion, and in many ways the powerhouse behind the annual event.
With somewhat milder weather, some people have expressed concerns regarding the thickness of the ice. The matter has been discussed at the Lions meetings, and should there be any question about it, the vehicles will remain off ice.
Further details will be announced as to cost and purchase points for tickets when the information becomes available.
