Title: ARW Halibut tournament June 17,2017 Registration OPEN
Post by: Lost_Anchovy on April 05, 2017, 10:47:50 PM
After a few months of planning the committee is ready to open up registration for the ARW Halibut Tournament. The tournament is schedule on Saturday June 17, 2017.

EARLY REGISTRATION ENDS JUNE 5, 2017 (Late registration will not be provided with an event shirt)

We are excited to put this event on for the NCKA family and look forward to raising money for PIF. We are still looking to secure additional prizes and raffles and we will update as it comes along. Registration for the event will be $25 dollars and will include, a goodie bag, ARW tournament T-shirt, and meal ticket. The rest of the money will go towards PIF.

First Prize will be awarded a custom made halibut trophy designed and crafted by Ariel_Sea.

There is also a limited time "PIF" T-shirt for the event that can be ordered through the registration process.
All questions or inquiries can be sent to Keith@thelostanchovy.com

NOTE: Attached is the waiver for the tournament. Please print, sign, and submit it electronically. We will also have printed waivers on the day of the tournament for all participants; however, those who have completed their paperwork are free to start after the general safety announcement.

Victor, we are planning to purchase a Large cooked pig, fruit and drinks as the main dish for the event.
We would like to hold a NCKA style side pot luck for the event for those want to bring extra to share. If you want to purchase separate tickets for the lunch portion just send me a PM and paypal me $5 dollars. --Keith

That's ok, our event is geared towards Kayakers. Either way, we are going to have a great time with those that come out.
BBQ, Drinks, Community and prizes. Best way to spend the weekend IMHO.

I will start posting the list of people who signed up when I get a little time. I'm gonna scope arw when the weather clears up and see what is the halibut situation is out there. There have been some halibut action at oyster point but a lot of small ones. There is a ton of bait all overy tho. Hopefully it is the same at arw. I'll scope out the halibut hotel and see if anyone has checked in and overstayed their reservation.  :smt001

Two launch locations. Launch your kayak from either boat ramp or the beach. Halibut are all over ARW.

Question,  i sliced the first 2 fingers of my left hand at work Wednesday.  I lost part of the first, the second took 14 stitches to re-attach.  I'm registered for the tourney but doubt I'm going to be able to paddle.  Any issue with my son utilizing my registration?  No kayak experience but a group event probably isn't a bad place to learn, plus it gets him out of the house and off the video games.

I'll show up either way but fishing is most likely not going to happen.
