Default Great Outdoors Poker Challenge! - 2nd Round - is almost here!

Anglers Press Media Center – Sacramento, Ca. -The first-round of the Thunder Valley Casino - Great Outdoors Poker Challenge! hosted last month by Thunder Valley Outdoors/Future Pro Tour, saw a full-field of outdoor enthusiasts (150 players) from all over northern California converge on the luxury resort, to participate in what was one of the most exciting events of the year.

Outdoor notables such as professional guide Don Pagenelli, lure designer Alan Fong, FLW touring pro Preston Henson, and others to name a few, were part of the event – with “elimination bounties” placed on their heads, helping to make the event even more dramatic and exciting. In this event, first place honors - and $500 in cash went to angler Frank Ono as held outlasted Evelyn Fong (Alan Fong's sister) on the final hand.

That event, was the first of two qualifying events that gave 30 finalists the opportunity to compete in the first-ever Thunder Valley Casino - Great Outdoors Poker Challenge - Tournament of Champions! event to be held Thursday, November 3rd at Thunder Valley Casino, where BIG prize money, a vacation cruise to Mexico, $100 coupons for free slot play, free night stays at the casino, free dining coupons at Thunder Valley Casino’s outstanding buffet, sports fishing and personal guide trips, and outdoor sportsman packages will be up for grabs for the top fifty finishers!

NO Buy-in Required

The second qualifying event - which requires NO-BUY IN whatsoever, will be held on September 8th, and will also give the top 30 finishers of that round a chance to qualify for November's Great Outdoors Poker Challenge - Tournament of Champions! event.

Please note that seating will again be limited for this second qualifying round, so if you want to participate, it is imperative that you call the FPT offices RIGHT AWAY to reserve and guarantee your seat at one of the tables. On the day of the event, registration/check-in will begin promptly at 5:00pm, where you will register and receive your FREE Thunder Valley rewards card, free gift, plus meet/greet some of the “bounty labeled” bass fishing pros participating in the event.

Tournament competition begins promptly at 6:00pm so make sure you get to the casino early so you will be ready to play! And remember….you DO NOT have to be a member of the Future Pro Tour to participate in these events, simply a person who enjoys and participates in outdoor activities.

What better way for northern California’s anglers and outdoor enthusiasts to round out a great year of outdoors activities than to participate in an event hosted at the most comprehensive and luxurious venue in the west!

Good luck everyone, as we look forward to seeing you all there!
