Welcome to Team Canada White's Online Auction for the 2018 Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championship in Ireland. Thank-you to all of the generous sponsors, companies, and individuals that donated items for our auction and for their support! We are still looking for sponsors and accepting items for the auction, so please contact Todd Oishi at: toishis@gmail.com if you'd like to donate an item(s) for our auction.

Please take a moment to read the rules before bidding on the auction items...

AUCTION RULES:
1. $5.00 is the minimum, acceptable bid increase.

2. Receipt of bids will be acknowledged by the auctioneer through email, and the bid will being posted on the item in a timely manner. Bidders are responsible for monitoring the auction for any dollar amount increases on the items that they're bidding on.

3. In the event of there being two or more identical bids for the same item, the bid that was submitted first will be the bid that is accepted.

4. Please note that all bidding for items on this on-line auction closes at 7:00pm on Friday, February 2, 2018 (Pacific Standard Time), however the "Two Minute Rule" applies to all auction items that have active bidding wars within the final five minutes of the auction (see following paragraph for information on how the Two Minute Rule works).

5. Two Minute Rule: This rule allows for the person willing to pay the most to win the auction item. The auction ends at 7:00pm on February 2, 2018, so all bids must be in BEFORE 7:00pm. 7:00pm IS TOO LATE (the time stamp on your email must read 6:59pm or earlier). The auction IS OVER at 7:00pm. However.....If there is a "bidding war" - meaning that more than one person is actively bidding on the item during the last 2 minutes, then the 2 minute rule comes into play.
EXAMPLE:
a) The auction closes at 7:00pm. Joe bids $50.00 at 6:58 (identified by using the email time-stamp).
b) Frank comes along and bids $55.00 at 7:00pm. Because Joe's bid and Frank's bid are 2 minutes apart, the auction does NOT close as originally stated in the description and bidding continues.
c) Joe then bids $60.00 at 7:02. Because Joe's bid and Frank's bid are 2 minutes apart, the auction does NOT close and bidding continues.
d) Frank now bids $65.00, but his bid doesn't come in until 8:05. Because there are 3 minutes between bids (more than two minutes between the last 2 bids), the auction is over and Joe wins the auction for $60.00.
Note: ANYONE can join in the bidding war at ANY time.  Just because they weren't there to start it, doesn't meant they can't finish it :)  So, if Trisha wants to come in at 8:04 and place a bid, when she hadn't before, she can, and she could win it if nobody else bids after her, or a bid is placed 3 minutes (or longer) after her bid.

6. Email notifications will be sent out to the successful bidders requesting settlement of their bid(s).

7. If payment is not arranged and/or received within five days, the auction item will be offered to the next highest bidder.

SUBMITTING YOUR BIDS:
- All bids must be emailed to Todd Oishi (the auctioneer) at the following email address: toishis@gmail.com 
- All bids must be submitted by email and must include the following details:
1. Your first and last name.
2. The item Lot Number.
3. A brief description of the item.
4. The dollar amount of your bid.

Please note that the Maple Ridge Fly Tying Night will be bumped back to Tuesday, January 9, 2018.



Innovative Fly Fisher Forum's Fly Tying Night will be held in the private dining room at the Home Restaurant in Maple Ridge from 6:00pm - 9:00pm on Tuesday, January 9, 2018. Everyone is welcome to attend our open fly tying nights and join in on a fun and informative night out on the town!

The theme for January's Fly Tying Night will be "Spring Prep"... Fly tyers are free to tie whatever they'd like to tie. I'll leave the floor open to others that are willing to share a few of their favorite pattern(s).

This is a great chance for you to refill the vacant slots in some of your fly boxes, and prepare for next season's recreational angling trips and competitions. It's also a great way to learn a few new tips and meet some other fly tyers in your region, and join in on the conversations/fishing stories from this past season.

The Home Restaurant is a family-oriented restaurant, so youths are welcome. They aren't charging us for the use of their private banquet room for our tying nights, but the deal is that you'll have to order either a meal or appetizer, or a pie and coffee, tea, or pop in order to fill a spot at the table ( I can personally testify that they make the best coffee and pies in town!!! ).

This is truly a fun time with a great group of people/fly tyers. It's also a great way to hone your fly tying skills and learn some new patterns, so please consider coming out to join in on the fun and share a few laughs! Newcomers to the forum and non-members are most welcome at this and all of our events!! :)

Please email Todd Oishi at: toishis@gmail.com or post on this thread if you plan to attend, so I can get an accurate headcount for the seating.

Official Invitation

Dear Friends, Respectable Young Anglers,
We would like to cordially invite you for Cortland 17th World Youth Fly Fishing Championship, a significant angling event to be held in Poland, following the decision by FIPS-Mouche to appoint the Polish Angling Association to organize the world youth championship in 2018.

Some thirty years since the first championship took place in Poland, we are honored again with an opportunity to conduct the championship on one of the most beautiful Polish fly fishing venues, river San. The headquarters will be located by Myczkowce Reservoir. The region hosting the event is well known for its beautiful landscape, clean rivers and nature, unspoiled by human activities.

Being anglers ourselves, we would like to host you not only as participants of this noble and sportive event, but also we would like to show you our region – with its wonderful waters and fish.
We will do our best to make you enjoy your stay and feel comfortable in here. We do hope that you will like our country, and the pleasant memories will encourage you to visit our region again. Stay assured that you will always be our most welcome guests.

Once again we invite you to participate in Cortland 17th World Youth Fly Fishing Championship. We wish you a wonderful stay and memorable impressions.

May the best angler win!
Chairman of the Organizing Committee

Although it is a long ways off, here is a link to the website for the 39th FIPS-Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship 2019, which will  be held in Tasmania, Australia: www.WFFC2019.com.

Here's the email that was sent to me...

Greetings to you,
As the festive season of Christmas approaches, all of us who are fly fishers think about new rods reels and lines under the Christmas tree.
I would like to think I could help out with your wishes but I can’t .
What I can do is introduce you to the new website for the 39th FIPS-Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship 2019 to be held in Tasmania, Australia www.WFFC2019.com.
November 2019 might seem a long way off but an adventure to fish “down under” in Australia takes some planning so the Organising Committee have decided to post some details and information early just to get you thinking about this challenging competition.
The opportunity to purchase tickets in our raffle, with great angling destinations and fly fishing tackle as prizes, via the website is open worldwide .
I hope you enjoy this initial version of the website www.WFFC2019.com which will be progressively improved and updated.
On behalf of the Organising Committee I wish you a joyous Christmas and a healthy and happy New year.
 
Glenn Eggleton
International Organiser.
