    The tournament website has been updated for the 2018 event which will be held on Saturday August 11th and Sunday August 12th. There are a couple of small tweaks/typos yet to fix on the website but for the most part it is now up to date. There is also some new content. Check out all the details at: www.jdfderby.ca

    I made my way around to all the ticket retail outlets this week and they all now have a supply of tournament tickets. They can also be bought online through the website.

    We have a new sponsor deal program just getting under way. We have a new page on the tournament website called "Sponsor Special Deals" and is found in the sponsor drop down tab. I have asked our many tournament sponsors to offer our 2018 ticket holders discounts on their products or services. The sponsors simply create their own ads with the size of the ad dependent on the level of their support to the tournament. Sponsors may change their offer up to 4 times per year to promote discounts on seasonal products and services. Sponsors will capture the business of the 500 ticket holders and the ticket holders will be easily able to recover their tournament ticket price with the savings. Our 1st ad has been added to the new page and it should populate in the coming weeks as we receive more ads. Check it out here: http://jdfderby.ca/sponsors-deals/

    Our new 2018 poster is done and a new tradition begins. The winner from the previous event will be featured on the next tournament poster. Who will win the $20,000.00 cash this summer and have poster bragging rights in 2019?

    Our July 16th t-shirt deadline is only a week away. We will be placing our order based on the tickets sold by that date. If you buy tickets after July 16th you will not get the free 2018 tournament t-shirt.

    So who's going in this derby? I got my ticket.

    This is one of the biggest derbies on the island with lots of prizes and chances to win and it takes place when the slot size restrictions will most likely be off!

    The money made from this derby goes to supporting the Sooke Chinook Sea Pen project - a very worthy cause.

    The slot restrictions will be removed by the end of July. We hope to see a big spike in ticket sales by the 16th which will convince the organizers that there is support for this event in 2018. Right now we are about $10,000 in the red with out of pocket costs and looking at injecting a further $30,000.00 to fulfill all tournament obligations. This is the time for anglers to prove that it is not only whale watchers that are supporting salmon enhancement. Sorry to throw in the politics but the Sooke Sea Pen Project is too important to not do what it takes to keep it funded.
