Well, anglers and friends, it’s finally happened. We’ve been working towards this for quite a while now and it’s time to unveil the new PCM Memorial Derby Logo!
With help from Carolyn at Sprokit Media, we have come up with a great new design.
We hope you like it as much as we do. All participants in the derby will be receiving a PCM Derby t-shirt with the new logo on it. Remember we are only allowing sixty entries this year and space is filling up fast. So call and get your spot reserved for the May Long Weekend!
There are still camping spaces available at Whispering Pines, but like the entries, they are going fast. Call Jamie at 604-807-3005 for more information.
To everyone that has already entered, can you send us an e-mail with your t-shirt size? We are trying to get an accurate order in this year. We’re offering women’s shirts this year as well so, ladies, that goes for you too.
Tight Lines, everyone! This year is going to be amazing!
The 2016 PCM Memorial Fly Fishing Derby is fast approaching and plans are really starting to ramp up!
More sponsors are being added daily and it’s looking like another great prize line up as well as some truly outstanding auction and raffle items. The deadline for the Early Bird Entries is coming fast. Have you reserved your spot yet? The Early Bird Entry Form 2016 is downloadable and payment can be made by credit card by calling Jamie Parsons at 604-807-3005
