    CanAm Update: I have spoken with Bob regarding the phone draft and we are waiting on a few guys from the USA to verify they are coming. We will have the final Peg Draft up on the CanAm Site, CAG and Facebook by no later than Friday night. Once this is posted, it will not be altered unless there is an unexpected last minute no show and will be dealt with on site. Show up, locate your peg and set up, fish and have a blast! Also, apparently the Canadian Boarder Officers heard about the CanAm being over here and have cut the amount of USA participants allowed across to ensure a win. LOL... I am only kidding, but as in the past with unbalanced teams, if there are any Canadians that would not mind volunteering to go to bat for the USA to balance teams, please contact me ASAP. Otherwise it will be automatically done and one or two random people will be chosen. http://www.canamcarping.webs.com/ https://www.facebook...arpanglingclub/ http://www.carpangle...029-canam-2014/Thank you, CanAm Organizers

    A couple of great offers for the participants in this years CanAm: First: Folks, "Orders for Can Am 2014 can be delivered to the event free of charge, just copy and paste coupon code CANAM2014DELIVERY and enter into the coupon voucher code box at checkout, we will be arriving at the event 12 noon on Thursday 17th July" Expires 11th July 2014 All the best and looking forward to seeing you there! Simon http://www.carpkit.com/ Second: Tony from the Canadian Carp Club has done some great work for us in the area to get the participants some great deals from lodging at Long Sault Motel to food / restaurants. If there is enough interest in Subway food from the participants, here is what can be offered by Tony and Subway: Subway would be interested in making a special pricing on 3 different choices of menu that will include 12" breakfast, lunch and supper. Again, there has to be enough anglers interested in this offer so Tony can go back and talk with subway to get the detailed menu and pricing. Anglers will have to pay and choose their packages before the Canam and Tony will deliver free of charge everyday the sandwiches. Please post here, contact an organizer or Tony directly at the Canadain Carp Club Shop and let them know ASAP! http://canadiancarpclubshop.ca/shop/ Thanks again Simon and Tony! -- Martin H. J.

    Done and sorry to hear it.
  10. CANAM 2014

    No problem, we will see you out there one of these years soon I hope! All the very best!
  11. CANAM 2014

    Hi all! I hope all is well. I was wondering if those of you that have requested to come but have not paid yet are still coming to the CanAm this year? I am just touching base with everyone as there is only about 2-3 weeks left!. All the very best
  12. CANAM 2014

    2014 CanAm Update: This is just a general post until an official posting is put up as the CanAm starts to stand out as a stand alone organized event / group. It has been put to me on a few occasions by a few people as to who the team captains are and why I am not a captain because I have put so much time, money and effort into it for Canada this year. For one, I may have gotten the ball rolling but there have been a couple of others I have also leaned and received help from. Second, thank you very much folks but in my mind I have not earned it as I have only been with this event for a handful of years. Here is what and why this years team captains have been chosen. Again, for future CanAm's this process will become solidified and posted properly and talked about. To be a team captain: 1. Said person must have knowledge of sport 2. Said person must have involvement and understanding in either organizing and/or promotion of the event (or both) 3. Said person usually should be a participant As those are the three main criteria for that position (among other things), for the 2014 CanAm the team U.S.A. and team Canada Captains are Bob. Giordano and Vali. Both have put in previous years participation, hours of work and promotion of the CanAm. They have both been in this particular sport for many years, earned and gained so much respect and recognition just to name a few things. I personally would like to thank both Bob and Vali for everything they have done to help continue to make this event what it is! If there are any comments or questions with this years decision, please contact me directly. Tight lines and all the best! -- Martin H. J. McPetrie Strictly Fishing Ontario mmcpetrie@live.ca

  15. CANAM 2014

    2014 CanAm Update: Just a reminder as the 2014 CanAm is fast approaching (only two months left) and there is only two (2) weeks left to order your shirt(s)! Shirt details and ordering information can be found here: http://canamcarping.webs.com/show-it-off Peg draw: Due to the set up of the 2014 CanAm being in a 'group camp ground', everyone will be arriving at different times and will want to set up camp A.S.A.P. so we have decided that the peg draws will take place about one (1) week prior to the CanAm over the phone between Bob and myself. All results will be posted on the CanAm website (http://canamcarping.webs.com/2014-teams ) and someone will be directing those of you to your site as well upon arrival. (there will be no allowances or special requests this year for fishing along side others or switching pegs to simplify this process. Thank you!)
