The Fishing Derby is held every year around the end of April at Ryken’ s Pond, owned by George Ryken, a member of the Club for many years. It is not a fund raiser, but it is a way for the Club to give the kids and their families a fun day of fishing. The pond is stocked every year and there are various prizes for the kids. Volunteers are an important part of this event too.
