AOY & ROY Standings update

Hey everyone! With prize updates out of the way, the most recent standings are ready!

Links to the ROY and AOY standings after Jordan Lake are posted below. With 6 events in the bag, AOY competitors will begin to shed low scores. The same is true of ROY, but that process began after the 4th event (Harris). Remember that tight races are decided by mere points, and this year’s races are tight at the top – anything can happen!

Additionally, anglers who are not yet in the top 25 can still qualify for the Tournament of Champions by improving scores over the last 2 events or also by winning an overall event.

CKA Tournament of Champions Prizes and Format

CKA established the Tournament of Champions in 2016 to provide an end-of-season event for the top anglers on our trail. Fun and prizes are the event’s focus. Denny Romero won that inaugural 1-day event on the Yadkin River and Melvin Yang won last year’s expanded 2-day event at Lake Norman (for a short history, click here).

This year’s event (October 13 & 14) will again expand and improve the tournament. First, it will be a best 10 fish event (5/5 over two days). Second, it will be held on a lake the CKA has not fished this season (we will announce the lake at the Gate City Classic). Third, the field will expand slightly: in addition to the top 25, winners of individual events, the AOY and ROY will qualify (we also awarded a spot to the winner of the Bass event at the Boonedox Yadkin Slam).

 Finally, a new expanded range of prizes have been organized. It includes:

$1,000 guaranteed for 1st place

An additional $1,000 in cash prizes spread out over the field (days 1 & 2)*

Free overnight camping accommodations for the top 10

Sponsor product giveaways

A Custom engraved trophy, designed by artist Ross Myer (FL) at Bass Trophies.

& more!

2018 Rookie of the Year Prize Announcement

Hello everyone, and here we go with the 1st of 3 separate announcements for the end of season prizes!

CKA welcomes new anglers every season but our first time tournament anglers increased dramatically in 2017. And because many were already strong anglers prior to fishing CKA we decided to incentivize competition by establishing a rookie of the year prize for the 2018 season. What we didn’t anticipate was the turnout, skill level and new friends that the new anglers brought to the group this season.  It exceeded all expectations and we are grateful.

The ROY will be announced at the Gate City Classic, and with 2 events left it remains an open race. The prize package includes:

$250 cash prize

A new Carver kayak cover

Qualifying spot in the CKA Tournament of Champions (October 13-14)

A Custom engraved trophy by artist Ross Myer (FL) at Bass Trophies Online.
