The 2019 PIIFA Derby

The 2019 PIIFA Derby: A Record Breaking Derby in Support of CHEO

This year's derby raised $6,355.00 for The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

In the past few years, we have been blessed with perfect weather for our annual ice fishing derby at Petrie Island and this year was no different. The weather was bright and sunny with a temperature of -5c. As with all previous PIIFA derbies, organizers outdid themselves by making it bigger and better than all previous years with 192 participants and many more sponsors. The derby raised a record $6,355.00 which will be given to The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) at their annual telethon in June.

Months of planning and legwork went into securing prize donations from both small and large businesses in the Ottawa area and we thank Dan, Mike Dubois and Anne Dumas for their efforts.

This years organizers, The Beaudoin-Tessier Family, found new ways to make even more money for CHEO. They were raffles for a Rapala ice auger and a Yamaha Generator, plus the "Plinko for CHEO" game which was hugely popular and raised well over $1,000.00 towards the final total.

A huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers who helped make this event possible. They include this years organizers, Richard Beaudoin, Christine Beaudoin, Fionna Beaudoin and Brianna Beaudoin. Stéphane Lanthier, our sound technician. Mathieu Gauthier, Registration and weigh-in. Dan, Michel Dubois and Anne Dumas, the prize people. Big Al Macintyre, the PIIFA President. Ronald Zinn, printing, promotion and the website. Cheers to all the others who worked hard in the background including Natalie Cloutier, Anne Dumas, Dan Michaud and Sylvain Michaud.
