Robert has been a volunteer for LCI for roughly 7 years. In addition to providing derby weigh station assistance, Robert has provided both the fun side of volunteering - out on the Lake as the Captain of Champlain's Ark - and the less glamorous but necessary work of grant writing.
1984 the Derby's inception. My fishing partner and I were almost awarded the grand prize for two walleye 6 and 6.5 lbs that were registered as Small Mouth Bass. We ate the evidence for dinner. However the next day we both went back to the weigh station and had the mistakes corrected. Derby officials gave us a lot of prizes for our honesty.
