Looks like we’ll have plenty of ice this year for our 62nd derby. NICC has had many challenges with the weather in the past 61 years. No matter what the weather, NICC dedicated volunteer members worked to keep the derby going strong both days.
To conduct the Derby in a safe manner, we will be having limited bucket raffles and no live auction. There will be a limited gathering of people during the Derby. The fishermen will only come to shore to register and enter their fish. The two fish judges will be in one area with only one fisherman allowed at a time to enter their fish. There will be another area set up with NICC members who are there to sell bucket raffle tickets, register fishermen, and answer any questions that the fisherman or public may have.
In place of the live auction, NICC will again be holding a Lottery Raffle for the month of February! We are only selling 1,000 tickets for $10 each. The tickets will be number from 000 to 999. Each night the Illinois State Lottery has a Pick 3. If you are holding the ticket with the numbers that are called that night, you will win $50. On Saturday night of the Derby, February 12th the lucky winner will win $250. On Sunday night of the Derby, February 13th the lucky winner will receive $500. 2021
To purchase Lottery Raffle tickets, you can contact Laura Golonka at 847-337-6487 or [email protected].
We have several openings on both Saturday and Sunday. If you can give NICC a couple of hours of your time, contact our president Leonard Dane. Remember, this is a good time to claim some of your yearly 5 hours of volunteer time.
