The Brewster Chamber of Commerce is happy to announce that the 2022 Derby will take place on August 5, 6, and 7th, 2022.
The Chamber thanks the City of Brewster and all of the sponsors and everyone that comes to Brewster to fish this great Derby.
The Derby is offering all the same great prizes and BIG dollar payouts. We boast the largest Salmon Derby on the Columbia River.
Ticket sales will be through SimpleDerby.com this year. Not Brown paper tickets nor PayPal. It will make a more simple and easy process to navigate and record ticket sales. Check out the other big Derbys they do each year.
 You also will be able to buy your Side Pots online at the same time you buy your tickets this year. Side pots will also be available at the Skippers meeting on Aug 4th.
Tickets, Side Pots, and T-shirt sales will begin on May 1, 2022 

 The Mandatory Skippers Meeting (unless other arrangements are made with the derby officials) is Thursday  Evening August 4,  at 6:00 pm at Derby Headquarters, the Gazebo in the Park by the boat launch.  You will pick up your Skipper pack including the Boat Marker and  Wrist Bands there.
The Side Pots, Raffles, and T-Shirts will be available at the Meeting.  Raffle tickets and T-Shirts are for sale all weekend. 
If someone in your group can not make it to the meeting we can make arrangements for you to pick up the Skipper Pack. 
We plan on having T-shirt sales available when you purchase tickets and we can ship them for a fee or you can pick them up at the Derby. This will cut down on overbuying and will guarantee shirts for you. We will have a better quality shirt than last year with no press on large decals!
