There are 500 public tickets available for the tournament. Each ticket is sold as a ‘per rod’ ticket, not a ‘per person’ ticket. As an example: if you plan on entering and fishing the tournament alone and wish to use 2 rods you must purchase 2 tickets. The person whose name appears on the ticket is the only person who can fish the tournament with that ticket. To change or commit to a name on a ticket you must notify the organizers prior to 9 pm on Friday August 10th. This applies to both public and corporate sponsor tickets. When you receive your ticket package please open it and read the information provided within. You should fill in your fish draw tickets right away so you have them done prior to using them at the weigh scale. Your tournament ticket, window sticker, info page and fish draw tickets are all included in a zip lock bag for your convenience.
We hope to sell out all 500 tickets as this would allow us to direct a projected $35,000 to $40,000 towards our Sooke Chinook Sea Pen Project. Once all 500 tickets have been sold those 500 ticket holders will be grandfathered into the following years tournament. They will be given first right to purchase tickets for the next event but must do so before a set deadline. Once that deadline passes all unclaimed tickets will be released for public sale. Please help us sell this event out in 2018 and allow us to maximize our contribution to our vital local Chinook salmon project. Thank you for your continued support!
$150.00 per rod
Ticket grandfathering – a date will be announced for the following year once the tournament tickets do sell out.
We will place our t-shirt order on this date with our supplier so that we will have them in hand for the pub night. Those buying tournament tickets after July 15th will not receive a free tournament t-shirt. We will ensure anyone who has bought a ticket prior to this date will get a free t-shirt of the size they request. Please ensure you indicate the size you want when you fill out your registration portion of your tournament ticket. T-shirts represent a substantial cost to the event and we now only order enough to cover participants who purchase tournament tickets prior to our July 15th production and pub night deadlines. This prevents us having shirts left over and which reduces the funds left over for our vital Chinook salmon project.
If you purchase your ticket after August 5th you will not have a free roast beef buffet meal allotted to you at our awards banquet. We will submit a food order with our caterers on August 6th and that order will be based on tickets sold to that date and only for those who have circled yes they will attend, on the registration portion of the tournament ticket.
