Hey Rich, why not award a prize to the person who travels the longest distance from home to attend the BCC? About 20 years ago I won a t-shirt from Cottage Life magazine for traveling the 3rd longest distance to go to the cottage each summer - Vancouver to Lake Simcoe. A family going from Victoria to Quebec came second and the first prize went to someone traveling from Kuwait to Ontario each summer.

Well done, KC! See you there. I'll be found in my lounge chair in front of Le Chateau Red Rocket (my little pop-top trailer) with a well camoflaged wobbly pop nearby.  8)

All registered and set to go...
Looking forward to meeting all of you, and catching fish that I have only seen in pics. For the Monday I'm  Tentatively thinking of renting a yak from River Canard Canoe and fishing the Canard.
Can't wait...

KC, do you rent a yak when you get there, or do you check-in your yak at the airport?

Thanks to the generosity of our forum members , several kayaks have been offered to me for use while i am down, and already arranged for the use of one of those. Will likely rent one for the Monday tho cause I'm assuming most people will be back to work. It looks like the Company drops them at the Canard river for you... I hope. Lots of time to iron out small details...

The BCC event had perfect weather and wind conditions that were spectacular. Hats off to Richard and all the guys that came from far and wide to attend the event. Im sure Richard and everyone else will add to the post pics and results. I also had a chance over the last couple days to fish with Kayak Curtis and EEF (Brent) and this morning we ventured out for some fishing. They managed to pickup some different species, and my goal was to get Curtis a huge drum before he gotta town and head back to Edmonton. The man had one happy face when he pulled in a nice size one. Brent also caught a few and was having some fun catching some white bass that were everywhere attacking minnows. I had a great time out there fishing with u guys and hope u make it back next year.Thanks

If those freshwater drum are any thing like the red drum I was catching down in Florida they would fight pretty good. It blew me away the first time I caught a red drum, it was only 22 inches but I thought it was going to be much bigger the way it pulled my kayak around.

That is a good size one, they look more like a black drum then a red with their body shape. Here is my best red drum from Florida.
