Fishing derby returns

PORT ANGELES — After three years with no derby due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kids’ Fishing Derby at the Lincoln Park Ponds is returning Saturday, April 8.

The event is sponsored by the Olympic Peninsula Fly Fishers and will run from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Kids from 5 to 14 years old can fish using conventional spin gear with bait and lures.

The Kiwanis, Les Schwab, Re/Max Realty and Swain’s General Store are all supporting the event. The Kiwanis Club will be at Loomis Cabin serving hot dogs.

There will be prices for the top three fish caught in five age divisions.

Prizes include quality fishing outfits, rods, accessories, tackle boxes and more. The fish will be planted just prior to the derby and awards will be immediately after 10:30 a.m. Measuring will begin at 8:30 a.m.

Ride the Hurricane

PORT ANGELES — Registration is now open for the Aug. 6 Ride the Hurricane event.

Early registration costs $70. After June 1, any remaining slots or registrations from the waitlist will be $80. The National Park Service restricts the number of cyclists in Olympic National Park at once, so space is limited.

Ride the Hurricane is a demanding hill climb with an elevation profile designed to challenge human conditioning and endurance. The climb begins at the edge of Port Angeles Harbor with a leg-burning, 18-mile, 5,000-foot-high climb to the summit of Hurricane Ridge.

There will be frequent aid stations along the way help to fuel the climb. The ride back down ends where it started — at the Port Angeles City Pier. After the ride, people can join The Party on the Pier, with a taco bar, local craft beer from Barhop Brewery and other refreshments.

Women’s golf club

SEQUIM — The Cedars at Dungeness Women’s 9-hole golf group begins Thursday, April 6. The Lady Niners Club is open to all women golfers. The group will meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Cedars at Dungeness pro shop before the start of the first game.
