Organizers with Sioux Lookout’s 2020 Walleye Weekend have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s annual tournament.

Organizer Cory Lago says after discussion with the tournament’s committee, due to the uncertainty of when Ontario will reopen, the border still being closed and a number of other issues, they have had to cancel.

Residents are able to transfer their entry fees for 2020 into the 2021 tournament, by contacting Lago at corman36@hotmail.com.

Residents are also able to get a refund for their fees. Those seeking a refund will forfeit their position for 2021 and will have to re-enter on a first come, first served basis when the committee opens up registrations on November 1, 2020.
