Fish Derby Rules

Derby Rules

First and foremost, this is a FUN event!  There’s no room for cheating, sore losers, or protests!

Second, we expect that, as construction professionals and MERIT members, you will behave in a way that does our association proud.

Third, this is a catch and release event.  The well-being of the fish is of prime consideration, so our interpretation of any situation will always favor the health of the fish.   

Finally, MERIT is all about fairness.  In the interest of creating a level playing field for all participants, you will not be able to use local guides on derby day.
