CCFT Sponsor Divsion

The Sponsor Division is for any sponsors with a $200.00 or more sponsorship. To enter the Sponsor Division you must have a ticket with the word "SPONSOR" printed on it. The sponsor or the sponsor's guest holding a sponsor ticket is entitled to weigh a fish in either the sponsor division or the open division, but not in both divisions for the same species fish. Sponsor ticket holders must advise Weigh Master which division they are entering. More detailed rules will be posted at the scales.

The general rules for the Open Division apply to the Sponsor Division. The rules, which apply to the Sponsor Division only, are:

  1. You must have a ticket with the word "SPONSOR" printed on it.
  2. You can weigh a fish in either the Sponsor or Open Division. Once you weigh a fish your ticket will be stamped for that division and species. Any additional fish of that species you want to weigh will have to be in the same division.
    EXAMPLE (You weigh a Bull Red in the Sponsor Division and a Rat Red in the Open Division. If you catch another Bull Red you want to weigh in, you would have to weigh it in the Sponsor Division, also. If you have another Rat Red to weigh, you would have to weigh it in the Open Division.)

To avoid confusion for the sponsor's guest, rules will be posted at the marina and the Weigh Master can explain the rules to you.
