|The derby is this Saturday from 10-2 and I just talked to one of the men from there who says they could use a few more bodies to help out.
Registration will start around 9;15-9:30 and the kids will fish from 10 until about 1:30 when they will break for lunch and the awards ceremony.
If the past couple of years are an example, PFIC members who help out will probably stay on the pier and fish together for a few hours after the derby. Last year there was a group of a half dozen or so and I think some stripers and bat rays were caught.
As for helpers, we need a few people to help Rita rig up the rod/reels and possibly a few people to help as judges during the event.
It's a fun event and if you've never fished the usually private pier this is your chance to give it a shot.
