You should have received your derby tickets in the mail. Remember, proceeds from this fundraiser helps defray our yearly expenses and allows us to provide a scholarship to either an Antioch Community High School student or a Lakes Community High School student. Raffle ticket sales are the most important part of the derby and is how we are able to give back to the community.

SOMETHING NEW THIS YEAR
Thirsty Turtle has closed. We have in the past, rented a tent for the derby. This year, the cost of a rental has risen due to the fact most rental businesses have difficulty with weather conditions. This year, John Diechl, owner of the closed Thirsty Turtle has agreed to let NICC rent the building for our 59th derby. This means, just about everything will be held inside except fish judging. We are still in the planning mode and will need volunteers for setting up and taking down.
