This year, any angler who has won a 15-minute prize will be entered to win the grand prize, $1,000 cash! We are no longer doing tagged perch, more chances to win and there will be a guaranteed winner should the event be held as planned. If the Derby is canceled due to insufficient ice, the prize will be raffled off to those persons who have pre-registered.

The Oxford Lions Club is also in the process of selling raffle tickets that will be drawn on Derby Day. The raffle will include a number of prizes, all of at least $100 in value. “We have again been fortunate to receive the support of area businesses in donating prizes for the Perch Derby,” said Chairman Jared Bartle, “and we encourage everyone to plan on visiting us on the ice in February.” Proceeds from the Chenango Lake Perch Derby are used to maintain the many community and area projects that the Oxford Lion’s Club supports, such as eye examinations and eyeglasses for those in need. Registration forms are available at Mayhood’s Sporting Goods in Norwich and at More information will be available in the coming weeks.
