Attention all AYC Anglers and Friends
When we launched the two 2017 tournament formats and new venues we received a lot of positive feedback. Via our Facebook page we received a lot of comments, likes, messages and saw a high number of people tagging their friends. Unfortunately, this has not resulted in sufficient registrations to make the 2017 Challenge and Series viable. There are many expenses involved with running these events and this year’s public liability insurance costs near doubled. With the low number of entries received to date AYC Fishing has had no choice but to make some difficult decisions.
After much thought it is with regret that we have made the decision to cancel both 2017 Series.
We will focus on 3 key classic events in 2017 – “The Sooty Classic”, “Copeton Cod Classic” and the “Windamere Yella Challenge”. These comps are exciting to host and are proving to be very popular with a more relaxed format, increased fishing sessions and more time to catch up with mates around the camp fire
Windamere Yella Challenge – 1st & 2nd April
Eungella Sooty Classic – 24th & 25th June
Copeton Cod Classic – 16th & 17th September
All entry fee payments we have received for the 2017 Jackall Challenge and 2017 Jackall Series will be refunded in full this week
A big thank you to our past and present sponsors that have supported our Yellowbelly Series for many years. With special thanks to Jackall Australia
AYC Fishing is still as enthusiastic as ever to be bringing these events to you. We appreciate your support and hope to see you at one of our 2017 Classic Events!
