Title: Georgian Triangle Derby 2020 - UPDATE
Post by: Krawler on February 10, 2020, 12:21:10 pm
Hello everyone ...  Hope everyone is enjoying the relatively mild winter.  I know I'm already thinking about and gearing up for open water season.  I've received a number of messages in the past few months from anglers inquiring about the derby I put on last summer and if their will be a 2020 tournament.  I guess some people are trying to organize summer holidays.

Yes, I will be organizing another tournament with similar rules and prize structure.

Right now the dates are set for Jul 25 with a weather delay for July 26.  A worst case scenario is the tournament be postponed another week in the event of very poor weather but I don't want to interrupt anyone's plans for the long weekend.

Entry fee: $50 per angler

Time: 5am - 3pm

Location:  Little Sand Bay on Christian Island.

Prizes:
Heaviest Salmon 50%
2nd Salmon 30%
3rd Prize

Heaviest lake Trout 20%
2nd Prize
3rd Prize

I am currently working on prizes and trophies, already have a few tackle packages donated by local companies.

In addition we will have a raffle prize.  All money raised will go towards local Georgian bay conservation initiatives.

Stay tuned for details

If anyone has any questions or would like to donate a prize please post or send me a pm

See you on the water (soon)

Kris

Hello Anglers!  I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during these times.
I know many of you are frustrated by the closures of ramps and marinas which for some means a postponement of your boating and fishing seasons.  This just means when we finally are given the green light those moments on the water will be that much more special. 
Today the Great Ontario Salmon Derby cancelled the event for the summer.  Very unfortunate but understandable.  I feel because we are a much smaller event and time is still on our side, we donít have to cancel anything just yet. We are still over 3 months away from our Georgian Triangle Salmon and Trout Derby, a lot can happen in that time.
So as of now we are still on for July 25, if anything changes I will let everyone know.  I hope to make the final decision around 2 weeks prior to the derby.

Stay safe.

Kris
