The Simcoe County Home Builders’ Association held its first Ice Fishing Tournament in 2006. With the head office for the Association in Barrie and the nearby waterfront (Kempenfelt Bay) why not use our local resources and hold a public Ice Fishing Tournament and raise funds for local charities?
About the Tournament.
The simple answer was…WHY NOT?
We’ve grown steadily over the years, so in addition to giving out more than $450,000 in prizes to participants both young and old alike, this single event has provided more than $420,000 to local charities for 12 years and running.
How it works.
Registration takes place in groups of 250. The facility in which we serve Breakfast and lunch (South Shore community Centre) only holds this many comfortably
In order to make sure everyone has a chance to have a sit-down breakfast, and hear the Tournament updates, we divide our numbers into groups ho then: register, have breakfast quickly and go onto the ice to select their holes at different times.
We’re all about fun and competition during our events – but there are rules to be followed to make sure everyone has a safe day.
The break-down is as follows:
GROUP 1 (Entries 1-250):
Registration and breakfast at 7am and on the ice to select holes at 8am
GROUP 2 (Entries 251-500)
Registration and breakfast at 8am and on the ice to select holes at 9am
GROUP 3 (Entries 501-650)
Registration and breakfast at 9am and on the ice to select holes at 10am
GROUP 4 AND DAY-OF REGISTRATIONS (Entries 650+)
Registration and breakfast at 10am and on the ice to select holes at 10:30am
