1. The 2013 Crab Derby begins August 24th at dawn and ends at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 7th.
2. There are two ways to win: Purchase of one $10 ticket automatically enters the purchaser into the prize raffle and the crab derby, should the purchaser catch a tagged crab. It is not necessary to participate in the crab derby to be entered to win in the prize raffle. There will be two separate drawings at 3:30 p.m. on September 22nd: one for the prize raffle, and one for the Crab Derby cash prizes. To be eligible for a cash prize a tag shall be returned in the Derby envelope to the Port Office prior to 7 p.m. on September 7th. Should an individual catch more than one crab, a separate envelope per tag has to be purchased in order for the extra tags to be entered into the cash prize drawing. Only those with a valid shellfish license shall be eligible. Each tag will be registered on the date it is taken to the Port Office, 365A Port Street, Waldport, Oregon.
3. The Crab Derby is open only to individuals who use recreational crabbing gear. Commercial crabbers and all divers are excluded from participation in the Crab Derby. The method of taking a crab and all Crab Derby tags are subject to verification. Port of Alsea Commission members and their immediate family members, and their employees are not eligible to win prizes. You do not need to be present to win.
4. The winning Derby tags for the cash prizes will be selected in a blind drawing at 3:30 p.m. on September 7th. The winning prize raffle tickets will be selected in a separate blind drawing at 3:30 p.m. on September 7th. To the holder of the first tag drawn a prize of $300 in cash will be awarded, the second tag drawn a prize of $200 and to the third tag drawn there will be a prize of $100.
5. By accepting any prize or reward, a derby participant agrees to allow the use of their name and picture in advertising and press releases by the Port of Alsea.
6. There is a limit on the number of crab each person may catch each day. There is also a size limit - and only male crab may be kept. The laws concerning crabbing are available at the businesses that sell or rent crabbing supplies and the Port Office. The state also requires a Shellfish License for taking crab in Oregon. Following the game laws will ensure our habitat of a renewable resource for years to come.
