Denis Lecuyer began volunteering his time many years ago, he spends his long weekend being our "Weigh Master". Denis shows up at boat checks every morning to get the scales set up early so they are ready for the daily weigh in. Denis devotes his entire weekend to assist with the bass derby from morning set up right to the final fish being weighed and take down! Thank-you Denis!
Chrystal began helping with the Nakina Bass Derby back in 2008. She started off as a student for Nakina Heritage Corporation and continued to volunteer her time afterwards! Chrystal attends the derby year after year, even being pregnant and ready to pop! Chrystal assists with our weigh in by managing the weigh boards each day. Thank-you Chrystal!
Angie Michel has been actively involved in volunteering for years, since she was a kid to be exact. She has been technical management with our computer/scale upgrades throughout the years. Angie runs the scale program during weigh in, and assists Marla before, during, and after the bass derby. She has a fiance who is also an avid fisherman and Angie loves the outdoors, especially being out at camp. Thank-you Angie!
Matthew has been a member of the committee since he moved to Nakina. Matthew assists the committee and is Angie's technical support. He dedicates his entire weekend to assist with the bass derby and has never caught a bass! Matthew comes out for morning boat-checks, ensuring they are done properly and training new checkers, as well as assisting with weigh in.
