The Rotary Club’s Glen Smith filled Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce members in on the details of their new Flinty Ice Fishing Derby coming up at Bakers Narrows on April 12th. Smith said they consulted with The Pas committee and they explained what the Bill Bannock Fishing Derby has done for their community. He said the number of out of town people that come to their community is 500 plus, every hotel is packed, every restaurant is packed and people are all over town, it’s just great for the community. He added Al McLauchlan made a comment when he was Mayor that the derby brought as much money as the Trappers Festival did for The Pas.
Smith thanked the business community for their support as sponsors of their event with 21 thousand dollars as first prize and 32 prizes totaling 100 thousand dollars. You can learn more at their website www.flintyfishderby.com.
