THE countdown is on to the Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic and Expo gets underway in August, from Sunday 21 to Saturday 27, and this year it’s going to be big!
In 2021, we had to make the unfortunate decision to cancel the event due to COVID-19, which would have been the thirty-fifth year that the event had been going.
So this year has now been branded as the thirty-fifth anniversary of the Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic and wow, hasn’t it grown!
There’s a whopping $100,000 in cash and prizes to give away across the fishing tournament week.
This year’s competition hosts nightly prize presentations after the daily weigh-ins, and we’ve added some extra-special prize presentation days into the mix.
• Tuesday 23 – Veterans Day
• Wednesday 24 – Ladies Day
• Friday 26 – Kids Day
Throughout the tournament week, every night there will be three adult competitors, two cadets and two juniors drawn randomly and who will go in the major draw-down prize presentation at the grand finale on Saturday 27 August.
There are cash prizes and trophies to be won for the heaviest fish in each category, which will be handed out at the grand finale also.
There is a $10,000 major draw down cash prize to give away for the adult category.
And the cadets and juniors don’t miss out – during the major draw down, there is a great assortment of prizes to giveaway for these categories too!
We take this opportunity to thank our sponsors old and new for their unwavering support of this amazing event.
And in the spirit of the tournament, we hope all entrants take the time to check these fantastic sponsors and business houses out, because without their support we couldn’t host this amazing annual event.
