Could someone please tell me the last year they handed out the tournament pins? With all the talk of not having it this year I was just wondering. Thanks
If I remember right they used to hand out some great prizes years ago. I hope they continue the tradition and maybe one day award trucks, boats, etc.

I can only speak for the last 15 Years or so. They handed out Derby pins (with numbers) and hats every year. They did not do the decals one or two years.

So, the Derby is on?  I thought I read something 2 weeks ago about it being cancelled, but this sounds better.  The island is already going to be a lot less packed this summer, so having something going on in the fall would help people keep earning money.
