For the Lakeside Leader
Shaw’s Point Resort will be a busy place on the Labour Day long weekend. It is hosting the annual Golden Walleye Classic.
“It’s our 30th anniversary, but everything is the same,” says Chairperson Ken Sperling. “Everybody had a great time last year.”
Up to 100 two-person teams will participate in the event. The registration fee is $2,000 per team. The team with the top two-day, total weight accumulated will win the top prize, which could be as much as $60,000. Teams from across Canada and the U.S. will participate.
There is still time to register for your place in the tournament. Contact Sperling at (780) 523-7385 as soon as possible.
There will also be a Captain and Kids Fishing Tournament, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 31, and all children will also receive cash prizes.
