CKA Tournament 8

The Gate City Classic

Multi-Lake Event

September 19th, 2019

The Gate City Classic celebrates the end of every CKA tournament season. Anglers compete on the final day a number of prizes, including qualifying spots in the Tournament of Champions, 2021 KBF National Championship qualification, and giveaways. Additionally, we have several announcements to make regarding the 2021 TOC, next year's CKA plan, and other news.

Additionally, anglers who fished at least 6 events will be eligible for the On the Water Innovations custom trailer. Please register early if you fished 5 events previous to the Gate City Classic, so your name will be on the list of eligible anglers.

Finally, we are currently planning to meet for a post-event meet up in the parking lot at Get Outdoors. However, anglers will still use the check in/check out function on TourneyX for event purposes and to limit contact. We will add further details to this post as they become available.

Now for the event details. Because this is a multi-lake event, please read carefully. 

A.    Registration

In order to register for the event, sign up using TourneyX. Create an angler account for event registration and CPR submissions if you have not done so – the basic account is free.

Tournament Fee: $55, includes TourneyX fee, Paypal fees and Food.

Optional Fees: Big bass ($5) and H.O.W. ($5)    

Note that Lake use fees are not included. Bring cash to the ramp to pay launch fees.

Register for CKA event 8 here: https://tourneyx.com/app/tourney/cka-2020-event-8-gate-city-classic

B.    Tournament Identifier

The blank CKA identifier card will be posted 4-5 days prior to the tournament. It can be found in your TourneyX dashboard as a printable pdf file. Be sure to print spares. It can also be found on the “Tournaments” page of the CKA website.

The CKA event code will be released on CKA social media and the Captains Meeting prior to the tournament at 8:30 pm on Friday, Sept 18th, 2020.

Do NOT use the TourneyX generated code or a KBF ID card.

C.    Format and Rules

Format: 5 longest fish (8” minimum length), submitted on approved measuring device (Fish Stik, Hawg Trough or Ketch Board only), entire fish and correct ID entirely in photo.

The CKA event will largely follow KBF rules. Therefore, anglers must be familiar with and follow KBF rules as well as all North Carolina fishing laws and local regulations as they apply. Additionally, the lakes have specific rules that must be followed. CKA/KBF Rules can be found at the link below. Links to lakes are in the last section of this post.

CKA RULES PAGE: http://www.carolinakayakanglers.com/?page_id=38                

Please be sure to obtain a valid N.C. license. CKA asks for proof of a valid license for anglers who win prizes.

Follow parking regulations at launches. Be respectful and follow good ramp etiquette.  

Remember: All CKA Tournaments are 2021 KBF National Championship Qualifying Events, but you must be a KBF member prior to the CKA event. To become a KBF member, click here: https://www.kayakbassfishing.com/join/

The tournament standings will be unavailable for public view beginning at around 2 pm but you can still post fish until the cutoff. We strongly encourage anglers to post fish throughout the day, especially their first fish.

Note: Be sure to update your phone so that browsers and apps run well. CKA Directors and Judges cannot be expected to solve technical problems with phones. If you are using the TourneyX app, be sure to download the TourneyX Pro app to replace the older app, which is now obsolete. Be sure also that all phone settings are set to allow TourneyX access to picture data. If you use the web browser to upload to TourneyX, make sure the browser settings in your phone's privacy features allow the site to access your location. Any and all photos submitted without GPS catch data will be denied.

Upload photos early from the water so that CKA directors can contact you if there is a question or problem with your submissions.

CKA will use the Check In/ Check Out function on TourneyX for this event. All anglers MUST Check in and Check out virtually.

D.    Boundaries and Launches

You are responsible for reading and following all CKA rules. All local lake rules also apply, so be careful to read the regulations for the lake you choose to fish. You can read CKA rules at this link: http://www.carolinakayakanglers.com/?page_id=38

Remember that certain areas of lakes are clearly marked as being off limits. This is true of some areas of Randleman Lake, for example. Anglers who fish in off-limits areas risk substantial fines. Furthermore, they will have their fish removed from the standings.

 

The tournament is a multi-launch event, and the listed lakes and access areas (below) will be the only eligible locations to launch. Keep in mind that some launches have limited space and different hours. Be sure to know the lake rules, arrive early, respect fellow boaters and be careful and helpful at the launches. There may also be additional launch fees. If you plan to ask for early opening of the gate, coordinate with other anglers. Any and all anglers must be allowed to enter and launch once a gate opens.

Please keep in mind that CKA does not control access to the ramps and if a gate is closed or it opens late, there is nothing we can do to change that fact.  Competition times (Lines in-Lines out) remain the same regardless of when ramps open.

We encourage anglers to coordinate early launch openings for the event, but some lakes may not be willing to provide early access, or may only do so for a fee. Anglers should cooperate and contribute in such cases, but CKA is not involved in arranging early gate/launch opening. Contact marinas/launches with your inquiries.
