North Chapter Meeting:  Come join us on the first Tuesday of October, October 7th at 7:000 PM at Bennet's Tackle in Berthoud for the North Chapter Meeting.  Clair Brown from Cabelas will be giving a presentation on spooning.  This presentation will be chalked full of great information and this is also the perfect time of year to put this technique to use. We hope to see you all there!

Larry Bolin Memorial Service: There will be a memorial service for long time CWA member Larry Bolin on Saturday, September 27th at 3:00 PM at the Conifer Community Church.  Click here for more details.

Deadline to sign-up for the Fall Classic: The deadline for signing up for the Fall Classic is midnight Wednesday, October 1st.

Fall Classic: We have our Fall Classic scheduled at Pueblo Reservoir on Saturday, October 4th.  The cost is $150/team with a guaranteed payout of at least $2000 for 1st place. The rules meeting will held the morning of the event starting at 6 AM at the North Marina parking lot.  Immediately after the  meeting boat inspections will begin with the tournament launch starting once all boats are on the water (shooting for 6:30AM start).  All contestants need to be back in by 3 PM for the weigh-in.  There is a registration link on the tournaments tab of the CWA website that you can use to sign up today!  The TWF side-pot is open for this tournament as well and it costs $50/team to enter - anyone that is thinking about fishing the NTC  next year should really consider joining the side-pot tournament.  We need 10 teams in order for the winner  to qualify for a free NTC spot, travel stipend and team jerseys.  For further information please send any of the board members an email.  For a little fun the CWA has decided to have 4 other optional side pots for largest walleye, bass, bluegill, and wiper.  Each side pot will cost $10 with 100% payout to the wining participating team of the side pot.  These are optional so you can fish 0 to all 4.  We look forward to seeing many of you there!

TWF Sidepot Information:  With next years Cabela's National Team Championships location set at Lake Milford, Kansas, don't miss your opportunity to attend the largest walleye team fishing event in the nation! This may be as close as the NTC will ever get to Colorado! The Colorado Walleye Association has a TWF side pot for the Fall Classic at Pueblo Reservoir. This will offer our club members to gain a PAID entry into the big show. If you would like to sign up for the side pot you must go to http://walleyefederation.com/sidepot-tournaments/ and register and pay for your entry to have a shot at the prize pack. Details for the payout and what will be won by the side pot winner is displayed on this screen as well. This is on the side of what the Colorado Walleye Association pays out and you do not have to participate in the side pot if you choose not to.
