The Gate City Classic
October 6th, 2018
Hi everyone, and get ready for the Gate City Classic! The Classic is when we conclude and celebrate our season with fishing and food. This year it will also be when we determine – for the first time – the CKA Rookie of the Year! A number of prizes, qualifications and details are also determined on this final day of the regular season. They include:
- AOY winner. The CKA Angler of the Year wins a custom prize package
- KBF National Championship slots for the top 5.
- The final standings to determine anglers who will proceed to the Tournament of Champions on October 13th.
- Location selection for the Tournament of Champions. The lake is announced after the Classic and Final standings are announced.
Additionally, this year’s event is notable because we will also host a KBF Trail event. Remember that the 2019 KBF National Championship will be a multi-lake event, so the Gate City Classic is an excellent practice event for qualified anglers. And because the KBF AOY race is tight, and many KBF anglers are jostling for position in “The Ten” at Bienville Plantation, we expect a large turnout for the combined events.
- Event Details
As noted above, the Classic 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
