    Sayward Fishing Derby "Tour de Rock" - 2nd Annual

    Hello Fishermen,

    Our small town, 45 mins north of Campbell River is having our 2nd Annual "Tour de Rock" Fishing Derby. ALL proceeds from the fishing derby go directly to Cops For Cancer, Camp Goodtimes. This is a camp for kids who are battling cancer.

    Last year was our first Derby and it was a tremendous success. We had 124 fishermen entered, 301 fish caught (mostly beautiful sockeye), and $1000's of dollars of prizes were given out. The event raised $7,000 for Camp Goodtimes!!!

    We have received tremendous compliments with our first event and are hoping that this becomes bigger and bigger each year!

    We are in the planning stages at this point and are looking for sponsors and prizes. If you are interested, please contact Rod at saywardfishingderby@hotmail.com

    PLEASE VISIT OUR WEBSITE AT www.saywardfishingderby.webs.com FOR MORE INFORMATION!!!!

    Thank you and hope to see in August 2011 in Sayward!!

    Thanks for posting the dates, only heard about it last year when it was too late to go.
    The member I know did not pass the word along, with the idea it was for RC members only?
    I know camping is pretty limited in the town, is there any other options for the derby, fields etc that may be opened up?
    Planning on being there!
    DFO....managed east coast fish stocks to extinction , now they are working hard to do the same on the west coast.

    Hello Islandgirl,

    Yes accomodations are limited but there is a lot of camping right in Sayward (next to the beer gardens). You will have no problems getting a spot. There is also camping out at the marina. Check out our "LINKS" on our website for more details on accomodations at www.saywardfishingderby.webs.com
    By the way, this derby is open to everyone both serious and not so serious fishermen. We'll see you out here at the end of August!!!
