Inaugural ice-fishing derby a success

The Rainy River Recreation Centre hosted its first annual ice-fishing derby on Saturday (Feb. 10), which drew 153 registered participants.

The derby featured a 50 percent payout, with the other 50 going towards youth programming at the centre.

Prizes (both cash and donated items) were given to the top four participants for walleye, northern, and the kids' division.

Sinking boat

These two intrepid boaters didn't make it very far in their cardboard craft before it began to sink Sunday afternoon as part of the 30th-annual “Railroad Daze” festivities in Rainy River. See story, more photos on A11.
