It was a Mailchimp mailing list mailout so they would have sent them all out at once, I'd be very surprised if they didn't, might be time to talk to Justin...

And if you need more incentive to jump on board the Million Dollar Snapper Challenge and Orton Events and joined up so that all early bird entrants into the Auckland Classic also get a free entry into the Million Dollar Snapper Challenge worth $99 with the chance to not only win the million dollars but you'll also be in the draw to win the boat and ute package!

The Million Dollar Snapper Challenge finishes on the Sunday of the Auckland Kayak Classic and Justin has arranged that all your fish weighed in over the two days are automatically added to the Snapper Challenge too.

For more info on the Million Dollar Snapper Challenge have a look at their website > https://www.snapperchallenge.co.nz/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Few questions;
So our fish will have photos taken at weigh in?
How many fish can be entered? Is there a limit per angler per day?
Do we get the measuring cloth so fish can be photo'd then released from yak?
Hi Tarrayakka,
Take your photo out on your kayak with your phone and measuring cloth supplied. You can enter as many times as you like. Once the earlybird has finish all who have joined the Auckland classic will get a email with the link to download the App.

Cheers Orty
Has everyone who got in the earlybird been sent out the email to download the app ? I haven't received one yet so just wondering .
