I am excited to announce some BIG changes to King of the Cats. First of all, this will be year 15 for us! I can’t believe it’s still going. Big thanks to everyone of you that has joined in and played along. I really appreciate it. I hope you choose to continue on with the new changes.
Starting in 2020, the contest format will change to the FishDonkey Mobile App for submissions. All contestants MUST join and submit your entries through the Mobile App. Also required to join is a $20 entry fee. This fee will be applied 100% towards prizes and admin/app related fees. (no money will go to me personally).
The app will make entries and submissions a great deal easier for both the contestants and myself as admin, and in fact will also eliminate the need for a separate control item or logo. You read that correctly NO control item will be needed. Also the leaderboard and all entries will be available to review 24/7 through the app.
The contest is open to residents of MN, ND, SD, IA, and WI and there will be 3 categories. Stringer of Flathead (3) Stringer of Channel Cats (3) Youth Division (for those 16 and under) and also a mixed bag division with Flatheads and Channel Score combined. Contest will be length and girth added together. For example a 40×25 would be 65 units.
I expect a small learning curve so I encourage you all to enter soon and start practicing. Also there will be no minimum length to qualify. This should help with practicing entries as well.
All the rules are detailed in the contest info when you join. Contest dates are April 1st through October 3rd and you will be able to join anytime during the year (no deadline to sign up).
I expect a LOT of questions, so feel free to send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
