We hope you are all well and keeping safe and warm.
Although the COVID-19 lockdown levels are changing and we foresee being able to frequent the farm soon, we do not believe we will be able to start the TTFC Champs as planned on 27 June. We will have to postpone until lockdown levels have dropped further and travelling between provinces is allowed. As soon as this happens, and all members can get to the farm without permits etc, we will set new dates.
All existing Champs bookings will be held. Once a start date has been confirmed, those who have booked will have first choice to confirm their preferred date to attend.
Stay safe - and keep that fishing gear ready to go!
We realise that you are doing your bit to keep safe in this novel Coronavirus lockdown period, but ... it's nearly that time of year again ... the TFFC Champs!!
In light of the Covid-19 lockdown, this is something to look forward to and would be a great opportunity to get out of your homes and get to the farm!
The last 3 years have been a great success with wonderful friendships made through competitive banter during each weekend of the tournament. It has been competitive but all round great fun!!
The format is the same as before with three qualifying Saturdays that will determine who goes through to the final. The weekends have been identified as follows:
27th June (Qualifying Round 1)
4th July (Qualifying Round 2)
11th July (Qualifying Round 3)
1st August (the Final)
The format will be: 4 teams of 2 per team (see new rules surrounding who can compete). The teams will compete against each other based on a draw and then fishing all the dams in predetermined time slots. The number of fish caught and released (as confirmed by the competing team) and size will determine the points allocated to the team. The top team from each qualifying weekend plus a 4th team with the most points from the 3 qualifying weekends will go through to the final.
Entry into the competition will be on a first come first served basis. Entrants can choose which weekend they want to go depending on availability - to book now, click on the below links with the predetermined dates. There will be a R300 entry fee per team. Payment will confirm your place for the competition. Please note that the accommodation has been block booked for those weekends. Once accommodation has been allocated for the teams, any remaining accommodation will be opened up for normal use.
