April 12, 2014 - Another great event was held at Collins Lake with over 155 participants. Family, friends and on-lookers had a great time experiencing great weather, a great BBQ lunch by Buckhorn Catering and fellowship. The over 50 kids had a wonderful time bringing in their catch and participating in the FREE Kids raffle.
Special thanks to Collins Lake for all their assistance, the volunteers who worked the derby and a BIG THANK YOU to all the participants.
If you have purchased a raffle ticket at any of our derby raffles in the last several years, you have purchased them from the "Three Amigos". They were always together and always great friends.
With Great sadness, we learned that we lost one of them on Wednesday, April 9th.
