Thursday evening will be a night to remember with a hog roast & drinks for competitors and of course music to add to the atmosphere. All competitors will bivvy up in a specially designated area. There are brand new showers, toilets, and other facilities directly on site for competitors to use. Anglers will be able to enjoy some quality free time getting to know one another in anticipation of the draw on Friday morning. Throughout the event, a team of experienced marshals will be on hand to

record captures and any fish banked which will instantly be uploaded to Facebook and Twitter.

Reuben Heaton will be providing the official competition scales and marshals will ensure that fish care is upheld to the highest standards. The winners and runners-up will be announced on Sunday after the final weigh in and be presented with their prizes.

“We feel that this is the perfect location and time to release products and combing it with the World Carp Classic which we have been proud sponsors of for several years – it just makes good sense. We believe it’s important to meet the anglers using our products and be able to show them the new products being released”

said Daryl Hodges, Export Sales & Marketing Manager for Dynamite Baits.
