The new roof at the Quatsino Museum

Quatsino fishing derby off for 2012

Annual fundraiser is called off after target is met.

The annual Quatsino fishing derby has been cancelled for this summer.

Organizers are happy to announce that they will be taking a well-earned break after reaching their fundraising goal for the year.

The popular derby had been tentatively scheduled for the B.C. Day long weekend but the hard work of volunteers has seen the committee reach their target earlier than expected.

The derby, an annual event since 2007, has raised more than $10,000 over the last three summers, which has paid for a new roof for the Quatsino Museum.

On behalf of the organizers, Gwen Hansen would like to thank everyone that has contributed to making the fundraising such a success.

“Thank you to all our fundraiser supporters and we look forward to seeing you again in 2013,” Hansen said.
