How's the DPC going to work this year?

The short answer is, the same as every year.  You are going to show up at the refuge between 8:30 and 10am on Saturday to sign your tournament waiver and pick up your goodie bag and pickle stick.  After that, you're going to go fish.  You're going to return to the refuge to give back your pickle stick by 12pm on Sunday or you're going to lose points and depending on how late you are, eventually get DQ'd.  If you need a refresher on the rules, click that Tournament Rule's link to your left.

The longer answer is that we're trying to make this thing work despite a pandemic and we're gonna need some help from everyone. On Saturday, we do not want a line of people waiting to sign forms and failing to give the DPC crew and every body else the space they might want. Be considerate of your fellow anglers and the DPC crew, don't make a line. There will be cones indicating places to wait.  If the cones are full, be patient and when a spot in line opens up take it and get signed up.  Just be decent.

**If you want to pay the extra $10 for the big-pickle pool please bring correct change**
We don't want to have to handle cash

On Saturday afternoon we'll post a link here, and to our FB, that will allow you to fill out and see preliminary scores from Saturday's fishing.  You don't have to fill it out, but we think it makes it more fun to see what you're up against Sunday morning.

On Sunday, you will return your pickle sticks to the refuge by 12pm or lose points (to eventual DQ). There will be no BBQ.  We will again post a link allowing you to fill out a Google form and let us know how you did.

1. You will have 24 hours to fill out the form.  If we don't get your form within 24 hours you will be DQ'd

2. If it looks like you might be in prize contention you will get an email from the DPC crew with a link to a Dropbox folder where you can upload your photos for scoring.  You will have 24 hours to upload your photos or you will be DQ'd

***This is a fishing tournament scored with photos - It is entirely up to you to get your photos off of your device and into a format that can be uploaded for scoring - If we can't score your photos, you can't win the Pickle - Simple as that***
