Rendezvous and Scanvenger Hunt 2021
After being forced to cancel what would have been the 11th annual Red's Rendezvous last year, we thought long and hard about how to host an event that was super fun, promoted MAXIMUM angler participation, was educational, and wouldn't get cancelled!
To orchestrate this, Red’s has teamed up with a group that spawned the idea out of Denver, Colorado. Check out these video clips of their local event Mile High 25 to get an idea of what this will be like! Teams of (2) anglers have (2) days and will use their cell phone to document each catch with a unique App. As teams submit catches to the tournament platform, videos will populate in real time for both the judges and competing teams. A live leaderboard will be in your pocket!
Rendezvous and Event Timeline
This year's Rendezous is being held exclusively for event participants. We want to keep it small, highly educational, and provide great value to anglers participating in the scavenger hunt.
Rendezvous - Friday, June 11th // 12 pm - 6 pm
Join us for the kick-off party, seminars, casting clinics, and workshops designed to help aid you in pursuit of the common species in the tournament. Teams can pick up their control cards, event merch, and buy any flies and tackle items needed for the weekend’s adventures! Oh yea, we'll be hosting an extended happy hour sponsored by a local brewery!
We will post a complete list of training workshops and festivities as the date approaches, but our goal is to help teach WHERE and HOW to maximize your catch count for the weekend.
