    The "After Thanksgiving Invitational Halibut Classic" aka "ATIHC" will be taking place on November 29th. This will be our 9th year and we greatly appreciate all the support from all past participants as well as all of our gracious sponsors! THANK YOU!!

    My wife put together this website rather quickly as she is very pressed for time lately. It will still be going thru various changes from time to time so feel free to check back often as it goes thru some changes. www.halibutclassic.com

    What started as a very small and private tourney has now grown just a bit over the years to its current state of aprox 53-55 teams. We hope to cap it out at around 75-80 teams and then at that point it will strictly become an invitational tourney giving preference to those who participated in the prior year.

    All prior teams have the option of filling out and paying a very small absentee fee to keep them on the invitational list for the following year if they are unable to compete this year. What this does for us is help to insure we can cover expenses, payouts and other tourney related needs as well as trying to keep this a tight & close group of repeat teams & friends year after year as we strive to have a little bit different feel & vibe. Also all absentee teams are still eligible for all other drawings and radio giveaways.

    This tournament is still open to ANY team that wishes to get an entry in before it reaches its maximum capacity. So if you are interested please visit the website and send in your entry and we will notify you if your entry was received in time before it reached maximum size.

    All past year participants (Teams) will have automatic entry preference if and when their entry is received or postmarked by November 19th. After that time (Nov 19th) we will then open up the entries to all other teams interested in entering, and take them at a first come first served basis.

    For those not familiar with the tourney, you can click on the links below of a few blasts from the past.

    Awesome! Glad to hear you received it.

    There will be just a few more postcards to go in the mail here soon, so if anybody from last year (or the year before) has not received their postcard invite then please let me know.

    Ok, I believe all of the invites (postcards) have been sent in the mail to last years teams. If you fished last years tourney and have not received a postcard in the next few days then please let me know, although it is not entirely needed as you can still log onto the website and print your entry and send it in.

    Im still looking for a Frank Smithey with a Cabo 22 if anybody know him

    Thanks!

    Thanks guys, it's greatly appreciated!!

    There are still a bunch of changes that need to be made to the site. We still need to add photos of all the past winners as well as numerous other things. The problem is catching my wife in the right mood LOL as well as her having time in between all of the hectic daily struggles of trying to raise a family in todays world.

    Look forward to seeing you guys there!

    Thanks Rick, looking forward to seeing you & Ron, I dont think this tourney would be the same without you two.;)

    Good question on the shirts (which I will probably bring up again later). The shirts can be odered on the registration page. Shirts are always a VERY limited supply, so it is important to make sure and get your order in early so that I know what to tell the shirt guy as far as sizes go. This is very important!

    Awesome man, thats great to hear!!



    Thanks Tony! That is exactly what I needed. I will get ahold of him in the next day or two as I have been busy with work.

    Hey Kel ~

    I spoke to ryan a few hours ago as he just got home from a bug dive. He has been tough to get ahold of lately as he is back in the full swing of coaching wrestling again. I will tell him to get ahold of you though.

    Also if you could shoot me your mailing address that would be cool.

    I want to try (key word being try LOL) to get all past winners to meet at bay park fish company for a photo with the trophy. Might be tough though with so much going on lately schedule wise........ well see.

    What in the hell am I still doing up!?!?

    Just a heads up guys!

    The early entry needs to be received or postmarked BEFORE November 19th.

    During this time we are also receiving and accepting entry from new teams until we reach the maximum capacity. After the early entry deadline it basically becomes a free for all for all other teams wishing to participate, so make sure and get your entries in early if you were a last years participant.
