(Midvale, Wyo.) - The Third Annual Benefit Ice Fishing Derby sponsored by the Midvale Store began today through Sunday at Ocean Lake. “So far we’ve had a bunch of entries and the lake is filling up,” said Mac Griffin at Midvale this morning.

The proceeds this year will benefit the family of three-year-old Zachary Mackay who was critically inured in an ATV Rollover.

Half of the proceeds will go to help with medical and travel expenses for the family and the entry fees will also be used for cash prizes and trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for the largest walley, perch and ling. There will also be a prize for the largest sucker and/or carp. A silent auction is also being held in association with the ice fishing derby.

Information and signup is available at the Midvale Store, Highway 134 (Missouri Valley Road) at Eight Mile Road, northwest of Riverton.
