JCAA 24th Annual Fluke Tournament

by Paul Turi, Office Manager
(from Jersey Coast Anglers Association July 2018 Newsletter)

The JCAA 24th Annual Fluke Tournament will take place on Saturday, August 4th and the Awards Presentations will take place on Thursday, August 9th at the Clarion Hotel on Rt. 37 east in Toms River, NJ.

In this edition of our newspaper there is a four-page insert advertising our fluke tournament. Contained within that insert is an application. You can fill that out and either mail or fax it to our office.

Our Eventbrite online registration is now on our website. I would strongly recommend using the Eventbrite site to sign up for the tournament. You will automatically receive a confirmation email and you will have a paid receipt for your records. Soon registrants will be able to download and print their own affidavit/weigh-in slip. Our IT person is now in the process of making that happen. Once it is operational, a registrant will receive a confirming email with a link to a site to download the affidavit/weigh-in slip. If you sign up by mailing in a registration form, an affidavit/weigh-in slip will either be mailed to you or you will receive an email with a link to download and print it. Again, it is highly recommended that registrants sign up using our Eventbrite online registration method. This not only serves as a receipt, but it saves JCAA manpower in having to manually enter everything into our computer system, print & mail an affidavit/weigh-in slip.

You will also notice on our application form this year instead of having 9 ports we are having 7 regions with 11 weigh stations. This year we have combined the ports Great Bay, Ocean City, Atlantic City, Cape May and Fortescue into the southern region. Each region will have 10 prizes. There will be a $1200 1st place prize for each region and 9 2nd-10th place merchandise prizes for each region. Therefore, for the southern region there will be one set of prizes for those five combined ports within that southern region.

There will be a $50 & $100 calcutta for each region and a $50 & $100 calcutta for the overall tournament. We will continue the calcuttas for this year as they have been very popular with a lot of interest and participation.

There will again be a $50,000 cash prize for the largest fish weighed in over 12lbs by 1/100 of a pound.

Last year in total we paid out over $60,000 in cash and prizes!!! The overall tournament winner, 10-year-old Dylan Cole, won $12,881!

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

The boat is again being donated to JCAA by Starcraft Boats and Yamaha again is donating the engine.

Again, we will be having FREE food and drink at the Awards Presentations on August 9thth at the Clarion Hotel. We will have sliders, hot dogs, soft drinks, etc. Yes, FREE! So bring the whole family and crew and have some fun and letís load up the banquet hall and make a nice impression for our tournament sponsors!
