Please follow this format:
Registration will be done by TEXT entry.
See Schedule below for Event and Event Co-Ordinator
The Event Co-Ordinator has plenty to do and keep track of, texting provides a record of the participants intent to compete. The text is your agreement that you will show up & pay your entry fees.
Due to rising costs, entry into any Angler of the Year (AOTY) event costs a mandatory
$15/person to cover the cost of the shore lunch during the competition weigh-in.
That’s an increase of $5/person over previous years.
There is also an optional $10/person fee to enter the big ﬁsh competition.
If you do not wish to compete in the big fish pool, simply opt out of it in your text.
The text should be sent to the event coordinator prior to 4 pm on the day before the scheduled event.
All State and local rules apply.
All perch outings include an 8 inch minimum requirement to qualify at weigh-in.
Cancellations can be made by text also, prior to the starting time of the event.
Your entry text should include your phone number in case the coordinator needs to contact you.
In the case of individual events where no boat is involved, you only need to communicate your personal information. Where a boat is involved, you need to communicate the name of the boat and the names of all individuals who are with you. Also, where a boat is involved, all participants are responsible to pay the $15 entry fee as in any of our AOTY events.
In the events that involve a boat, all participants on the vessel
will either be in big fish pool, or all will opt out.
Also remember, that these AOTY events are for each person’s individuals points.
You must keep each person’s catch separate, or in some way individually identified.
Failure to do so will result in disqualification.

“Dan Chisholm is entering the AOTY event on Jan 21 at Metro Beach. Phone number 000-000-0000
