Venue and Timings

This will be an all-day event on Saturday 7th September. It will take place at The Fishing Lodge, Draycote Water, Rugby, CV23 8AB, a short drive from the University Campus. Competitors are expected to make their own travel arrangements due to the transpor­ta­tion of equipment. Reasonable expenses can be claimed under the normal HASSRA Travel and Subsistence rules.

Event Format and Rules

This is an Inter Association event.

Each region will be invited to select a maximum of three competitors to take part.

The event will comprise two elements: An Individual Championship and a Team Championship, with the catches of all regional competitors counting towards an overall regional total.

In both the Individual and Team competitions, the winners shall be determined by the number of qualifying fish recorded as caught, and not by weight. Weight will only come into play in the event of a tie on numbers caught.

Further competition and fishery rules will be made available to all competitors prior to the event.

A decision as to whether fishing will be from boat or bank will be made in due course.

Kit and Equipment

Suitable footwear and clothing should be worn. Competitors will need to provide their own equipment, including bait.

Lunch will be provided and refreshments will be available to purchase.

Consideration will be given to those transporting expensive equipment when allocating accommodation and parking.
