Prior to event, you must CHECK IN to the event from with the Tourney X app. After the event you must then CHECK OUT from the event within the app. Failure to do so will result in a DQ

Best Practices

** At launch facilities, set up your kayak at you vehicle (if possible) and then take to launch. DO NOT block launch area while you are setting up.

** DO NOT gather and socialize at ramps. Set up and launch to clear the area

**Wear a mask, buff or some kind of mouth and nose covering at launch areas ( if possible)

**DO NOT assist with set ups of other anglers equipment.
Maintain a 2m/6ft distance from other anglers on and off the water.
Upon finishing the day, remove kayak from the water and move from the ramp area to your vehicle for tear down.
DO NOT hang out and socialize.

Please make sure you understand the rule changes and feel free to contact if you need any clarification.

We hope that you all understand the need to implement these changes. With luck the changes will only be in place for the first event, but that is something that will be looked at on an on-going basis. IF there are changes to any requirement between now and the event, changes may be made to comply and notice will be given.

Thank you for your support and let's make this another great event.
