Thanks again to everyone who participated in this year’s derby. Keep checking the site because we’ll have more photos and videos from the closing party coming up. If anyone has photos/video they want to share please email them to me at mk.louie@gmail.com and I’ll get them up on the site (with photo credits). I took some myself but they mostly turned out like I remember my night, that is to say, blurry.

    The awards ceremony was awesome. It was my first time at The Woods and hopefully it wont be my last, nice place. Again, Ben, your lobster rolls were delicious dude. I just showed up to enjoy the night, didnt really expect anything. Thanks you guys for the rod and reel, its already set and ready to go. Just because the derbys over, does’nt mean Striper season is(Dec 15 btw). I hope i see u guys out there. I dropped by this morning. Denton was there packing up after a rough night. Happy Thanksgiving fishing crew. Ralph.
