We are well on our way in our planning process for the 36th Annual Walleye Derby. Our committee has been meeting regularly and have started to make some great progress in getting this years event details in place.

Our new electronic sign-ups are now active at the club, this new system was developed to help streamline the process for anyone joining the club and the derby at our monthly events. We have basically eliminated the need to fill out forms by hand. We now have the ability to get you signed up faster and tie in your membership electronically with the derby entry and print out your slip right on the spot. The new system will enable us to be able to quickly give our derby team up to the minute updates as we get closer to the event for total entries, more accurate records and a new updated contact database, all this to better serve you our valued membership. 

Additionally this new system will give our staff the ability to be completely portable for pop-up sign-ups throught the next few months at various locations. At the end of the derby we will also save time in tallying the results and reduce the amount of work required to track fish, weights, and times.

Check back here often for the latest derby news, until then...
