NORWICH – A milder than usual January has the ice at only 6 inches thick, so the annual fundraiser for the Oxford Lions Club will be postponed until Feb 16 which was originally scheduled for Feb. 2.
The derby will run from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a $1,000 NBT Bank cash prize for the first registered fisherman catching a 2008 tagged perch. Blueox Corp is offering a $500 prize for the second tagged perch. In addition, if the first tagged perch is caught by an angler who has pre -registered, he or she will receive an extra $200. The angler hooking the largest Perch of the Day will receive a $150, from Richard Polgar, DMD PC of Oneonta.
