2016 Contest Questions

I'm very new to this site, but what a great site! The Spring Contest looks like alot of fun. I do have a couple of qestions. Will there be a kids contest this year? If so, what are the age limits for kids? Also, how long does it take for the buttons to typically arrive? I'll be fishing away from home during the first part of June and would hate not to be able to count any of those fish if my button doesn't arrive in time. Thanks, Brian

Yes, we will have a Kid's Division again this year.  I'm pretty sure it will be for Roughfishers 12 and under.  Kids will have a separate registration than adults.  As far as not having your button by June 1st - we will post a Temporary Contest Image on this website that can be printed out and used until your button arrives.  Last year some folks just showed the web image on their smart phone, and that works too.

 

It's a tough balance to try to get buttons out to people on June 1st, but not too early so that cheaters could start early.  Not that we think anybody will cheat, but it's for the peace of mind for all contestants.

Maybe I'm stupid but how do I register? I can't find the link anywhere and I see there's already a few dudes signed up.

 

EDIT: Nevermind I found it. Carry on, nothing to see here...

we will fix it

There's plenty of time to register. I can't replicate the issue you're having, but we'll get it fixed here soon. The most important thing is to order your button asap so you have it in time.

Site Error

I think this error is now resolved. I had to upgrade the site core. Please let me know if something isn't working.

Here's a contest question. I received my contest button. With the button was what I assumed was a sticker of the contest button, but across the middle of it was a barcode. Does this item have significance?

No. Just some internal tracking thing in the cafepress factory, I think. I was excited at first at the idea of a bonus sticker.
