CKA Tournament 8

& KBF Trail

The Gate City Classic

Multi-Lake Event

October 6, 2018

Hi everyone, and get ready for the Gate City Classic! As many of you know, the Classic is when we celebrate our season with fishing and food. This year it will also be when we determine – for the first time, the CKA Rookie of the Year! A number of prizes, qualifications and details are also determined on this final day of the regular season. They include:

·       AOY winner. The CKA Angler of the Year wins KBF National Championship slots

·       The final standings to determine anglers who will proceed to the Tournament of Champions on October 13th.

·       Location selection for the Tournament of Champions. The lake is announced after the Classic and Final standings are announced.

Additionally, this year’s event is particularly notable because we will host a KBF Trail event. Because the KBF AOY race is tight, and also because so many KBF anglers are jostling for position in “The Ten” event at Bienville Plantation, we expect a large turnout for the classic this season. Remember also that the 2019 KBF National Championship will be a multi-lake event, so the Gate City Classic is an excellent practice event for qualified anglers.

A. Event Details

As noted above, the Classic will be held in conjunction with a KBF Trail Event.  Anglers may fish either the CKA and KBF event separately, or fish both events simultaneously. The CKA event is a 3 fish limit event and the KBF Trail event is a 5-fish limit event, but an angler's 3 CKA fish can be cross-posted to the KBF event on Tourney X. Additionally, non-KBF members can compete in the KBF event but we encourage anglers to sign up as KBF members.  This post contains

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

B. Registration

Entry fee for the classic is $50 and this will include your donation to HOW, your entry for big bass and placing.

To sign up for the CKA event, click here: (insert tourneyx link)

To sign up for the KBF Trail, click here: https://tourneyx.com/app/tourney/2018-kbf-trail-38-gate-city-classic-nc

If you have not yet done so, please create a Tourney X angler account for event registration.

C.    Tournament ID’s

Your CKA ID will be posted at mid week. Print spare copies, as always. The ID code will be posted to the CKA Facebook page on Friday night before the tournament (it will also appear on our Twitter and Instagram pages). Please write the ID posted on your ID card. The number must be visible in the photo and we must be able to read the ID number in order for the fish you submit to Tourneyx to be valid.

KBF Identifier codes will be released through Tourneyx and posted to the KBF ID page at this link: https://www.kayakbassfishing.com/identifiers/

D.    Boundaries and Rules

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

This joint event will follow KBF rules only, and dismiss any CKA exceptions to the KBF rules made on the CKA rules page. For example, motors are allowed for both events. This means that even an angler who only fishes the CKA event is still responsible for following 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 to Randleman Lake.

E.    Launches

The tournament is a multi-launch event, and the listed lakes and access areas (below) will be the only eligible locations to launch. This is because KBF rules require equal access for all anglers. 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.

Please keep in mind that CKA and KBF do not control access to the ramps and if a gate is closed or it opens late, there is nothing either series can do to change that fact.  Late opening will not affect check-in time at the end of the day, and all anglers must be present at Get Outdoors for check in before the deadline. A

F.     Captains Meetings

There will be a live Captains Meeting the night prior to the event. The first will be held  on Friday evening at Get Outdoors. Anglers are not required to attend the meeting, but strongly encouraged to do so. If you do not attend the meeting you must watch the virtual captains meeting on youtube at this link:

CKA will provide identifiers at the Captains meetings and through Facebook. KBF Trail anglers will receive their identifier codes through TourneyX and on the KBF identifier page of the KBF website. Those codes must be written correctly on the KBF identifier.

Tournament Check-In

We will meet at Get Outdoors. All anglers must be checked in by 4 pm. This means that you must present yourself at the check in desk by that time, without exception. The check in area will be next to the front register. 

Anglers must be present at the post-tournament check-in in order to collect prizes. If you leave the event early and will not attend the check-in, we ask that you send us a message so we know you are safe.

H.   Check-In

Note: KBF Trail events are complex events that require months of planning. After anglers compete, they should be aware of the following post-event processes and resources.

·       KBF prizes are distributed after a thorough review of judged photos, processing of necessary tax paperwork  and after settlement of disputes. This is done to ensure the correct results, and generally takes several days. For more about those processes, see the KBF Rules standard sections 12, 13 and 17, here: https://www.kayakbassfishing.com/kbf-rules-standards/

·       The Trail payout scale is as follows, as of 2018: https://www.kayakbassfishing.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/2018-KBF-TRAIL-Payouts-Chart.pdf

·       Relevant IRS tax forms can be found at: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf

·       For questions about dispute resolution, contact KBF Director of Operations Richard Penny: https://www.kayakbassfishing.com/staff/richard-penny/

·       To inquire about money won in KBF competition, contact Kristie Hoover: https://www.kayakbassfishing.com/staff/kristie-hoover/

Note: be sure your Paypal address is correct in your KBF account
