    AMERICAN CARP SOCIETY ANNOUNCES AUSTIN AS SITE FOR INNAUGURAL TEXAS CARP CHALLENGE

    Unprecedented Quarter Million Cash Prize for New Texas Carp Record Bartlesville, OK ---

    The American Carp Society announced today that Austin has been selected as the site for the first annual ACS Texas Carp Challenge (TCC) March 26-31, 2006. A prize pool like none other in the sport of catch and release carp angling will be offered at the premier tournament. One lucky angler has the chance to win an astounding $250,000 cash prize should the new Texas state record for cyprinus carpio be established at the competition. Town Lake yielded the current record of 41.5 pounds in March 2005 according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The coveted ÒBig FourÓ bonus cash prize of $25,000 could be awarded to the participant who brings in the four largest fish with a total weight grander than 130 pounds combined during the event. ÒThese prizes are unprecedented in carp angling,Ó says David Moore, tournament coordinator and a director of the American Carp Society. ÒAs we see the sport of catch and release carp angling gaining momentum in the United States, tournaments and the prizes will undoubtedly grow larger.Ó ÒCarp angling is widely accepted in many other countries around the world, so it is certain this tournament will see some international anglers as well,Ó continues Moore. ÒWe expect a good number of talented and acclaimed carp anglers to compete.Ó The six day tournament will be headquartered in Austin. Competitors will draw for peg position and set out to fish within a seventy-five mile radius of Austin, the Greater Travis County and lower Colorado River region. The 120 hour endurance and skill competition commences on March 26 and ends on March 31. A number of cash and tackle prizes will be awarded throughout the tournament and at the awards ceremonies in Austin. Texas Carp Challenge registration information, call 918-289-6774 or visit the American Carp Society website at www.americancarpsociety.com. The American Carp Society provides a broad array of services which include carp tackle and equipment e-store, educational materials and publications, regional and national tournaments and contests. ACS is dedicated to the sport of catch and release carp fishing and promotes the conservation of the species. # # # AMERICAN CARP SOCIETY ? PO BOX 1502 ? BARTLESVILLE OK 74005

    I think your right Tim.

    As far as ACS events go, im not sure about them..seeing how the WCC went and the cash and prizes were taken care of. I dont think i'll ever fish one of thier events unless its held in OHIO.

    It is immediately following the ATC.

    What is interesting is that that there is an EXCELLENT chance of someone breaking the state record down there and scooping $250,000....
