Team Georgia Winter Bash 2020: CANCELLED


This is a 2-day event (Feb 8/9), where 20 2-man teams will compete on the Chattahoochee River in Helen, both in town and on the WMA.

The entry fee will be $50 per 2-man team. Entry fee due within 72 hours of registration.

Since this is a Cup Race event, 14 spots are reserved for the existing teams within the SEFFL.

***Disclaimer*** Any remaining open spots will be filled by team anglers in the registration list.  League officials will make final decision for these open spots.  This will ensure equal distribution and ratio of spots and team anglers.  Unaffiliated anglers may not be included in Cup events to accommodate for team anglers, who receive priority.

Comp will be POSTPONED UNTIL APRIL 18/19. The Hatch Camp comp will be moved to a different date. April 18/19 is NOT Easter weekend. It is the weekend after Easter.

Reason for postponing:
After several weeks of independent fishing reports and having fished it with my team this weekend (Jan 12), the Hooch's fishabilility is not worth your time, travel, and, most importantly, the money you would spend for a two-day event. I also fished Smith's and that is not a great option either, so we will wait until the weather and fishing conditions improve. We want everyone to have a good time and to enjoy the comp.

Please look at your calendars and let me know if you can still make the event.

Thank you for your patience. If you would like to contact me, please call me on my cell.

Thank you,
Chris Abellana

CHRIS ABELLANA Good evening everyone. Team Georgia has come to the very difficult decision to cancel the Winter Bash Comp scheduled for April 18/19. We want to make sure that we adhere to the COVID-19 guidelines so that we keep all anglers, organizers, and volunteers safe and healthy.

All anglers that have paid their entry fees will be refunded their money via the method received (i.e. PayPal or Venmo).

As of right now, there is NO DATE in mind for rescheduling. Thank you for your patience and please keep you and your families safe and healthy.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,
Chris Abellana
