It’s Time to Start Signing up for CVO Hours!

Last Updated: February 24, 2017

Every year the Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby relies on the support of it’s volunteers to help us put on the best event possible. Perhaps what you didn’t know is that we pay our volunteers Community Volunteer Organization Hours – CVO Hours.

This is a great fundraising opportunity for our local groups and clubs. Since CVO Hours were introduced, the Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby has paid between $17 and $22 per man hour for the available positions we have, based on the revenues generated by the Derby. This is just one way that we help our community.
