Title: 5th Annual Estero Kayak Challenge
Post by: surfbrewer on April 20, 2019, 10:50 AM
The Estero Kayak Challenge is happening on Saturday, June 1 at Leffingwell Landing in Cambria. All registration and info can be found at http://ianglertournament.com/5th-annual-estero-kayak-challenge (http://ianglertournament.com/5th-annual-estero-kayak-challenge) Pretty much the same exact setup as last year and as always all proceeds from the tournament and raffle go to our local chapter of Heroes on the Water.

If you've never attended our past tournaments here's how it works. Anglers compete in 4 divisions for cash. Divisions 1-3 payout 3 places deep, while division 4, the Tournament Champion, is winner take all. Then after the judging and awards, we do the Heroes on the Water benefit raffle where 100% of the proceeds go to our local HOW chapter. This year among all the other great items, Vibe Kayaks, donated a new 2019 Sea Ghost 130 that we will be raffling off. Great opportunity to walk away with a new kayak!

The HOW boys will again have food available for purchase at the landing for when everyone hits the beach. Cutwater Spirits will be onsite sharing samples and Santa Maria Brewing is again donating one of their tasty kegs. As always, families and friends are welcome to hang on shore and cheer everyone on as they return for the weigh-in. Last year we had epic conditions and great weather, let's hope for the same this year.

New this year is that Saturday night back at the campground, we are having the 1st annual EKC Cornhole Tournament! This is open to everyone and is a great chance to include the families if they are joining in the festivities. We will have 2-4 cornhole sets running and teams of two will compete against eachother. This is single elimination, you lose your out, until we are down to the final team of two. Let me know if you have any questions or trouble signing up. Quickest way to get a hold of me is by text message Eric @ 805-748-6002. We hope to see y'all at this years EKC! Cheers!

Iíve been watching and the swell has been fairly consistent, the wind will be the killer if it comes up.
Title: Re: 5th Annual Estero Kayak Challenge
Post by: RHYAK on May 21, 2019, 07:57 PM
indeed just told mary this wind forecast is killing me.

probably the worst part as a tournament director is the long range forecast.

but at the end of the day, i can only speak for myself its not about the fishing its about the coming together for a great cause and in this case it is our local Central California Hero's on the Water.

Getting more vets on the water is what it is all about.

Stupid question for ya. Was there a shirt size entry during the registration? Was the shirt included in the reg fee? I just sort of clicked thru it.

Cool. Jeremy you did fill out the size. Iíve got an XL for you.
Title: Re: 5th Annual Estero Kayak Challenge
Post by: Big_Mac on May 29, 2019, 11:22 PM
Sorry I'm replying so late. Yes....I'm an XL. That's perfect! Just to clarify....the CPT meeting is at the San Simeon Creek Campground (about 1.2 miles from Leff) and not the San Simeon pier area...right? Sorry....the location link isn't working for me and this is my first Estero KC so I don't have anything to go off of.

Thanks,
Jeremy
