The BCKFC Championship Tournament Series is designed to reward our club’s kayak anglers that can catch fish in a variety of conditions, seasons, areas, and formats. The series consists of four qualifying tournaments that are spread across Louisiana throughout the year. Each event is designed to test the angler’s skill in a unique set of circumstances. Only BCKFC paid members in good standing are eligible to qualify for the Championship event, although non-members can still participate in the tournaments for a cash payout at the end of each event. Individual tournament participation from non-members is welcome and encouraged. These qualifying events tend to be smaller and informal, making them a great place for those that are new to the sport to meet some members and learn a new area. For more information, check out the events section of our forum or check the event calendar for the next scheduled tournament.
There will be a cash payout at the end of each tournament to all those (members and non-members) who participate in the tournament. Any paid member who finishes in the top 20 at Minimalist Challenge or the top 15 of any of the other qualifying tournaments will gain entry to the Championship event, which will be held on November 19, 2022. The participant must be a paid member prior to entering the tournament in which they qualify. Additionally, each paid member must “register” (i.e., pay entry) for at least two of the first four qualifying tournaments in order to qualify for the Championship.
At the Championship there will be a raffle for a Native Slayer Propel Max 12.5 presented by Pack & Paddle. Members in good standing receive 1 free raffle ticket for each tournament they enter, plus the opportunity to buy an additional ticket at time of tournament registration. The most raffle tickets an angler can receive is 2 per tournament throughout the 2022 Championship season.
Only paid members who have qualified are eligible to compete in the final Championship event.
