Grosse Pointe Woods to Host Perch Derby

Prizes and lunch are included in Saturday's festivities at Lake Front Park in Grosse Pointe Woods.

The Grosse Pointe Woods Parks and Recreation Department is hosting the Jack Boni Family Perch Derby, but anglers have only until Wednesday to sign up for the Saturday competition at .

Participants will cast their rods from 9 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. with a lunch break at noon and the weigh-in at 2 p.m. Registration for the event costs $5 for those fishing and $3 for those just eating lunch, but the event is free for children under the age of 5.

Registration forms must, however, be turned into the Grosse Pointe Woods Community Center.

Competitors can form groups and compete as a team, and prizes will be awarded to the top-three groups per weight of fish. A prize will also be given to the child — 10 years of age or younger — with the largest fish. All competitors will receive a participation award.

Cost? Jack was a prince of a guy and a great fisherman. He probably covered any extra cost.

Your ability to estimate incremental costs is exceptionally poor. Take a lap.
