Media Release – Canadian Ice Fishing Championship Update

From the recent outings of CIFC personnel on to the ice and the reports this last week coming from anglers that have been venturing out from several locations across Georgina’s shore line, it’s looking like we can have our deep water day!

No one is going to be happier than us to return to the classic two day challenge where teams have to show what they’ve got for catching big fish and perch.

February 23, 24, 2013

(Registration – Friday Feb. 22nd)

Jackson’s Point, Ontario

The location this year is Jackson’s Point, again something traditional that agrees with a lot of competitors. It is close to the amenities of town. Free, plentiful, and easy access to parking is a definite bonus. For those that don’t have an ATV or sled to get out on ice, Bonnie Boats will be running their Bombardier for $7.50 per trip, per person. A real deal!

This year we are making the Early Bird Draw more interesting by not having just one, but 26 prizes to be won; and teams increase their chances the sooner they register. Any team registering in the next week will have 4 entries into the draw bucket but that number goes down each week until February 8th. That’s your last day to be in the Early Bird Draw. The Early Bird Draws will be held during the Friday night registration and regulations meeting.

The Friday meeting and the awards night dinner take place in Sutton at the arena, just minutes from Jackson’s Point and again, free parking.

We say “THANK YOU” to the people who have already registered and extend a warm invitation to inquiring first timers and past competitors to contact us directly with any questions. Registration can be done online or we’ll take your information over the phone in just a few minutes’ time.

It says something about everyone involved, including the anglers that local people want to chip in to ensure the success of the CIFC for the nineteenth year in a row. CIFC is still receiving offers of support in the way of products for prizes and from people wanting to volunteer out on the ice. Keep it coming!!!  Both are absolutely essential for the Championship to operate and they have our sincere appreciation.
