Team Entry Fee: $2500 CDN to cover the first four (4) team members, $250 per additional team member to a max of six (6)
Registration Deadline: Two weeks prior to Captain’s Meeting. Late entrants may not receive all benefits or handouts associated with the tournament.
Penalty Fee for late registration:
In 2016 and 2017 we had eleven and thirteen boats registered, respectively. Many captains registered (with money sent in) only in the last week before the tournament. In prior years Captains may have consider withholding registration until they saw the next week’s weather forecast. Registration in the week before the tournament is a challenge for the organizers and volunteers since the fishing licence must be organized with Department of Fisheries and Oceans. DFO needs to know the boats participating. Also, items must be ordered for each fisher’s kit bag. Food and beverages must be ordered for the appropriate number of people before the opening and closing festivities. As our tournament continues to grow, such late registration needs to be discouraged.
To encourage early registration at current rates, a late registration fee of $500 must be added if the registration forms and fees are received after the 2 weeks before the Captain’s meeting deadline.
- Note: Cancellations prior to two weeks before the Captain’s Meeting will be charged $100.00. After that date a late cancellation fee of $500 or the equivalent to team costs expended by the tournament organization will apply.
