Due to the rapidly evolving situation with the COVID-19 pandemic and the priority that needs to be placed on public health, the Bobcaygeon & Area Chamber of Commerce has made some difficult decisions regarding our upcoming Spring events. The health, safety and well-being of our members, staff and community are of the utmost importance to us.
Please note that the Canada-US Walleye Tournament & FunFest scheduled for May 15th to 17th has been cancelled. This is a very difficult decision especially since we would be celebrating 40 years of the Tournament. All registered anglers, vendors and sponsors will receive a full refund. We will be reaching out to everyone directly to discuss this process. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
Details of the 2021 Tournament will be determined at a later date.
2020 CANADA-US WALLEYE TOURNAMENT & FUNFEST
LET'S CELEBRATE 40 YEARS!
2020 marks the 40th Anniversary of the Canada – US Walleye Tournament. This tournament is a live release international fishing competition which brings 120 teams of anglers from across Canada and the US to Bobcaygeon annually. It is the oldest Walleye tournament in Ontario.
The Bobcaygeon & Area Chamber of Commerce will once again partner with the Competitive Sport Fishing League (CSFL) to ensure a high quality tournamant and ensure we preserve, manage and develop the growth of the future of the oldest Walleye Tournament in the Province of Ontario, the Canada US Walleye Tournament now in it's 40th year.
Taking place at the Bobcaygeon Beach Park on May 16 and 17, 2020, we plan to celebrate this historic occasion with the entire community by expanding the event to include a 40th anniversary FunFest. The purpose of the FunFest will be to enhance the fishing tournament and provide event content during the day while the 240 participating anglers are out on Sturgeon Lake competing in the tournament. Elements of the two-day festival will include a Kids Fishing Derby, Learn to Fish activities, a Family Fun Zone, Vendor Village, music and entertainment and a 40th Anniversary Celebration BBQ.
There are still a limited number of spots available for the Tournament. You can download the registration form at the button below and return to: firstname.lastname@example.org
