CKA/KBF Trail Event
Randleman Lake, NC
July 8, 2017
Welcome anglers to Event #6 of the 2017 CKA tournament season. The tournament will be held on July 8th at Randleman Lake located in Randleman, N.C. The event will be held in conjunction with a KBF Trail Event. Anglers may fish either the CKA and KBF event separately, or fish both events simultaneously.
The CKA event is a 3 fish limit event and the KBF Trail event is a 5-fish limit event, but an angler’s 3 CKA fish can be cross-posted to the KBF event on Tourney X. Additionally, non-KBF members can compete in the KBF event but we encourage anglers to sign up as KBF members. This post contains

Hello everyone and thanks again to all of the anglers who recently fished at Lake Badin, as well as our sponsors for their generosity. CKA tournament attendance is up from last year and we are on track break our seasonal attendance record. A few numbers below, courtesy of Mr. Butler:
- 296 Anglers have fished in our 5 events to date
- 139 different people have fished at least one of our events in 2017
- 60 angler average per event
Once again, we thank everyone who competes with us to make CKA the most well-attended series in the state. These numbers would be even higher if some of our veteran anglers were not busy traveling to compete at KBF Trail events that have conflicted with our tournaments. The other side of that story is that we have welcomed many new kayak anglers to the series, and they have infused it with new talent.
We have updated the Angler of the Year standings through 5 events (Norman, Falls, Jordan, Hickory and Badin). With 3 events remaining in the season there is room for earning points and the battle for the top spot remains close. Also, there is room to qualify for the top 5 (who qualify for KBF National Championship) and the Top 25.
An Excel file of the current and complete AOY standings can be found at this link: CKA AOY Standings 06192017

We look forward to seeing everyone at Lake Randleman on July 8th!!
Hello everyone, this is an update about CKA preparations for the next event on July 8th at Randleman Lake. Like the event we held earlier this season at Falls Lake, this will be be a 2 tournament event, with parallel competitions. One event will be CKA Tournament #6 and the other will be a KBF Trail event (anglers can register for one or both). As before, there will be additional prizes and the KBF Trail event guarantees $1,000 for 1st place if at least 30 anglers participate. And also as before, we expect a big crowd of anglers from around the region and country.
We are currently tending to logistics and will communicate additional details in the coming days. A few early points for those planning travel:
a) The Friday night (July 7) Captains Meeting will be held at Get:Outdoors in Greensboro, N.C.
b) This will be a multi-launch event, with the lake’s two launches available to anglers.
c) Sign up for the Trail event is already available on Tourneyx. CKA event sign up will be available soon!
We will post complete details in the coming days, as well as CKA AOY updates, photo gallery updates, etc.
