The South Dakota Walleye Classic tournament will continue with changes for 2014, made for its upcoming 7th annual event as a TEAM format.  "The team event was very successful" reports George Kessler, Tournament Director.

The format will be a two or three man team event, each day of the two day event. Kessler says "To my knowledge, this format is the only of its kind in major tournaments".

Kessler added "This year we are going to push very hard for more State and Regional entries". 

The event will be held July 25th & 26th (Friday & Saturday)  and will again launch from the Swan Creek boat ramp near Akaska. The Team pay outs will total 100% based upon a full field of 60 entries. The entry fee will be $300.00 per team.

Kessler says "Akaska will continue to do its popular and successful Festival surrounding the tournament". This years Festival will again feature a Saturday dance, numerous vendors, kids fishing day as well as the Arts in the Park.  The committee is also working on new events for family enjoyment to be added as well.
