Chamber cancels Walleye Challenge

GLOVERSVILLE — The Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce has canceled the 2021 Walleye Challenge Ice Fishing Derby at the Great Sacandaga Lake is postponed until 2022.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and safety for the community, the Chamber and local organizers have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Walleye Challenge.

“The tournament and registration take months of planning in advance,” Tourism Director of Development Anne Boles said. “We are unable to plan a large gathering at this time, as we continue to adhere to New York state government guidelines. We are very hopeful for less constraints by 2021, but the reality is we cannot plan for a large crowd now with the current restrictions and guidelines in place. It is truly a very hard and difficult decision to postpone. We look forward to continuing our traditional tournament with Fuel N Food, Lanzi’s, and all our local sponsors and donors in 2022.”

Past fishing enthusiasts will receive a letter in the mail regarding postponement, and is posted on 44lakes.com and Visit Fulton County NY Facebook page.
