Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities

Each summer, the South Vancouver Island Anglers Coalition (SVIAC) hosts the annual Oak Bay Marine Group Juan De Fuca Fishing Tournament. This two day fishing tournament headquarters is based at the Pedder Bay RV Resort & Marina, which is also the official weigh station. There is a cap of 500 regular public tickets available each year and we typically issue an additional 100 to 125 sponsor tickets.

Our winner is awarded $20,000.00 in cash and there is typically close to $100,000.00 in prizes awarded to our other lucky winners at the Sunday afternoon tournament banquet. The organizers strive to increase the total prize pool with each event and to remain the largest sport fishing tournament on Vancouver Island.

The Oak Bay Marine Group Juan De Fuca Fishing Tournament has been structured to appeal to both those who seek friendly competition amongst their peers and those who are looking for a fun weekend with their families. There are prizes available for the anglers who land the 11 largest salmon of the derby. Many very nice draw prizes will be available for those who simply register a catch regardless of size of the fish. There will also be many prizes awarded for those who simply enter the derby but who don’t register a catch.

Our previous tournament proceeds have helped to support Sooke River Chinook Revitalization Project (Sooke Harbour Sea Pen) which the South Vancouver Island Anglers Coalition is championing. Our goal is to be able to direct between $30,000.00 and $40,000.00 to this project each year. Our goal is to increase the Chinook population in the Sooke River in an effort to produce more fish for both our local resident Killer Whales and also local anglers. This is a project that is already underway! In the spring of 2017 we penned and released 220,000 new Chinook smolts. In the spring of 2018 that number will increase to 500,000. Some of the tournaments proceeds are also used to lobby on behalf of recreational anglers and to ensure that both the sport fishery and fish thrive.

Please take the time to check out the sponsorship forms and with your generous donations help us achieve another sold out and successful fundraising derby. You will see there are many levels of participation available. Please be aware that some of the advertizing exposure opportunities are date sensitive and are based on production or organizing deadlines. Complete derby info will be available on this site and will be linked to the coalition site at www.anglerscoalition.com.

Thank you in advance for your generous sponsorship contributions!
