All WFW anglers are required to wear a name badge to claim prize and be allowed into the Ramkota ball room.  Badges will be provided at registration.  Kids are not required to attend the rules meeting.  They will still receive a gift and we will have some kid’s raffles that parents/guardians can accept.
  • Opt-Out Option: if you are not comfortable coming to the event, you must notify us by Friday February 4th no later than 4pmYou will not lose your guaranteed spot but no refunds will be issued as most prizes have already been purchased. We may draw for some Scheels gift cards depending on the number that decide not to come.  Notify us via text by responding to our messages to you (include team number) if you will not be coming.
  • LOTTERY TEAM WINNERS – If you choose not to attend, your spot will not carry over to our 2023 event. No refunds will be provided for teams not coming. You will be included in any drawings for gift cards if we do that.
  • Please don’t wait until the last second to show up to limit the number of people in lines. We will open up check-in earlier this year to spread things out.
  • We will not have food this year to limit lines and congestion.  Beverages will be available from the Ramkota.  No outside beverages allowed.
  • If you are sick with anything, DO NOT COME!  Notify us ASAP.
