IMPORTANT: There are some changes regarding registering for this year’s tournament. Please carefully read the information below.
Due to some changes in how Game and Fish is permitting charity tournaments, we have new rules and a new process for registering for the Bakken Classic Fishing Derby.
To keep it a charity tournament, the Bakken Classic will only be open to members (or employees of a corporate member) of the North Dakota Petroleum Foundation’s Bakken Classic Club. This membership is separate from NDPC membership.
Bakken Classic Club membership is $300 for the year and all funds will help the North Dakota Petroleum Foundation fund critical habitat projects throughout the state. As a Club member, you or your company will be eligible to register one (1) three-person team for the Bakken Classic Fishing Derby. Individuals or companies wishing to sponsor multiple boats for the derby can purchase multiple memberships to be eligible. Please note that each member of your team does not need to be a Club member to participate in the Derby. Only one team member is required to be a member of the Club to be eligible to enter a boat in the tournament. Learn more or sign up to become a Bakken Classic Club member here.
If you are a member of the Bakken Classic Club, you may register Bakken Classic Fishing Derby by completing the registration information below. Members must pay a separate entry fee of $60 for the team to register. The fee is not tax-deductible, and 75% fees will go toward prizes for 1st through 5th places. Additional prizes will be available for Big Walleye. All participants will also receive a long-sleeve performance shirt. Click here for the size chart.
The 7th Annual Bakken Classic Fishing Derby will be held Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at the Four Bears Casino Marina. The Derby is limited to 100 teams. Contact Tessa Sandstrom at 701-857- for more information.
