(from Jersey Coast Anglers Association February 2000 Newsletter)Mark your Calendar now for the 6th annual Jersey Coast Fluke Tournament on June 10th, 2000. The Jersey Coast Fluke Tournament is a unique concept that is ten mini-tournaments in one, each with its own set of prizes. Each contest is held one of the ten ports from Jersey City south to Fortescue. You will compete for over $2,300 in prizes for the port you select including a first place prize of $1,000 sponsored by Resorts Casino Hotel for the largest fish weighed in at your port. All participants are automatically eligible for the Grand Prize of a boat, motor and trailer which will be selected during the door-prize drawing at a Gala Awards Ceremony at Resorts Casino-Hotel in Atlantic City on the evening of Friday, June 16th, 2000. So in addition to your chance to win any of the many other port prizes (to be announced) by using your fishing skill, every boat entered has a shot to also win the Grand Prize, a boat/motor/trailer package, and a host of door prizes. Remember these all will be given away as part of the huge drawing at a gala awards ceremony to be held in Atlantic City on June 16th, 2000.
This fun event is important to all recreational fishermen. The Jersey Coast Anglers Association, the eyes, ears and voice of recreational fishermen in New Jersey, has been working hard to protect the marine environment and the fisheries we enjoy as part of this great sport we all love. With 18 years experience carrying out this important work, JCAA is a leading advocacy group on the East Coast. JCAA, a non profit, volunteer association, works diligently with local and state government to increase fishing access, expand fishing opportunities and also operates one of the most successful youth education programs anywhere in the country. By entering the Jersey Coast Fluke Tournament, we all benefit as the proceeds go to help JCAA continue its work.
Entry slips will be available in up-coming issues as additional prizes are firmed. If you would like to be a Major Sponsor or contribute to the Tournament please contact Phil Celmer (609-693-3414) or Tom Fote at (732-270-9102)
