Tournament Participation Procedures and Expectations
Happy New Year from Casting for a Cause Disabled Veterans Foundation (C4aC). With the introduction of 2021, we have found that we need to summarize how we determine who fishes in what tournaments, how the funds are raised and provided and how winnings are distributed. Going forward, we will provide an outline to all participants that will require acknowledgment of understanding to ensure any questions are addressed prior to participation.
C4aC works to provide a recreational outlet for our veterans and disabled veterans across the United States. Since we are based near Savannah Georgia, we also depend on associate members (non-military) to assist with getting our vets on the water. In addition to providing routine fishing outings, we also work to enter disabled veterans into nationally recognized fishing tournaments. Most of these tournaments will provide an opportunity to participate in Championship events depending on how you place. To be eligible as either a disabled veteran or a captain, you must be a member of C4aC. Membership is free to veterans that are 100% disabled. Veterans with lesser ratings or no rating will be required to pay a $75 annual membership. Associate (non-veteran) memberships are available for $150 annually. All tournaments must be funded. This means fundraising efforts will be required to raise the money necessary to cover expenses. If a company or individual would like to sponsor the necessary costs, the fundraiser is not needed. Tournament costs can range from $350 to several thousand dollars when competing in championships or if invited to the Redfish World Series.
Participants must agree to the guidelines provided, which are as follows:
*Disabled veterans and captains participating in the event will assist in the fundraising efforts by sharing and promoting through social media.
