The event will be held on a Saturday or Sunday of every month and the entry fees will go towards the cash prizes for the day event. So the more support we get the more cash will be up for grabs! Prize moneys will be awarded down to 5th place and there will be lucky draws for various other items and prizes.
The planned events will take place at various venues around the Cape. The main venues will be Clanwilliam, Bulshoek, Kwaggaskloof, Theewaterskloof and Brandvlei although others are also being considered.
This is a great opportunity to meet other anglers from around your area and have some great fun at the same time. So get your Team together now and sign up to stand a chance to win some great cash prizes!
The venues chosen by the organisers will be “set in stone” And NO deviation from the venue times or how the venue or “BFSA Money Trail” is run will be entertained, other than by the organisers and their officials.
