BC Family Day long weekend busy at Deka Lake, Interlakes

Community news happening around the Deka Lake area of the South Cariboo

Family Day weekend promises to be great fun for all.

On Feb. 8, folks can enter Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department’s (DLDVFD) Ice-Fishing Derby. Weigh in is from dawn to 2 p.m. at the intersection of Julsrud and Burgess roads. Tickets, $6 each, are available from any firefighter or at the weigh in.


Outhouse races

On Feb. 9, come enjoy the Interlakes Outhouse Races at Interlakes Corner from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Participants need a team of three people and must build outhouses to specifications. The official registration deadline was Feb. 1, but if you drop by The Country Pedlar, your registration will probably still be accepted.

There is no charge for participants or spectators.



Apparently, I misspoke in an earlier column, and DLDVFD’s ice-out raffle tickets will not be available until a week or so after the ice-fishing derby.


Fees due

Advertising fees for 2014 are now due for those who advertise in the Deka Lake & District Ratepayers’ Association (DLDRA) thrice-annual newsletter.

The cost is $20, which may be hand-delivered to Penny Millway or Lorna Wiebe, or mailed to DLDRA, c/o 7524 Burgess Rd., Lone Butte, V0K 1X3.
