Take a Shot at Winning $50,000!

The JCAA 23rd Annual Fluke Tournament will soon take place on Saturday, August 5th and the Awards Presentations will take place on Thursday evening, August 10th at the Clarion Hotel on Rt. 37 east in Toms River, NJ. Registrations start at 3:00PM and the presentations will start at 7:00PM.

Early entry fee is $130 by July 24th. After July 24th the entry fee is $160.

This year we have three prizes for early entrants who catch the largest fluke: 1st place $1,000, 2nd place $500 & 3rd place $250. So by entering by July 24th you will be eligible to win this additional money.

There is an application to enter the tournament in this newspaper or you can go to jcaa.org and either download an entry form and fax it to the office or you can sign up on line using our link to Eventbrite. If you use Eventbrite you may sign up as late as 9PM on August 5th, the night before the tournament. Or if you wish, you can call the office and I will take your application over the phone.

If you entered the tournament and you didn’t sign up for the $50,000 Doormat Fluke Category or any of the calcuttas, you can still do so. Just call the office and give me your credit card over the phone and I will add it to your entry and process a new affidavit. However, you will have to return your original affidavit before I can reissue a new affidavit.

In addition to the $50,000 Doormat Fluke Category prize, there will be a 1st place prize for each port of $1200. Also for each port for 2nd through 10th place will be merchandise prizes yet to be determined.

Last year we paid out over $60,000 in cash and prizes! The overall tournament winner won $13,325.

The Grand Prize Drawing at the Awards Presentations this year will be a 14’ Starcraft boat, 20hp Yamaha engine and a Yacht Club trailer.

The boat is being donated to JCAA by Starcraft Boats. Yamaha is again donating the engine. The trailer is being donated by Yacht Club Trailers.

You do not have to weigh in a fish to be eligible to win the boat, motor and trailer! However, you must be present at the Awards Presentations at the Clarion Hotel in Toms River on August 10th for the drawing.

Our Major Sponsors this year are:

We have four 1st Place Port Sponsors for this year. They are:

Please support our sponsors!

This tournament is JCAA’s largest fundraiser. Our sponsors spend a lot of money helping to make this tournament a success and make JCAA successful. It takes a lot of money to run JCAA and without their support there would be no JCAA. I can’t emphasize enough how important they are to the success of not only the tournament but JCAA as an organization. They deserve your support.

We will be having free food and drink at the Awards Presentations on August 10th at the Clarion Hotel. We will have hamburger sliders, hot dogs, soft drinks, etc. Yes, free! So bring the family and crew and have some fun and let’s load up the banquet hall and make a nice impression for our tournament sponsors!
