2013 Frog Giggin’ Tournament
Get ready to catch some huge frogs and earn bigger dough when the 2013 Frog Giggin’ Tournament Series comes to Ashdown during the Whistlestop Festival on May 10.
Pre-register your team online and then come out to the Ashdown Farmers Market on Friday, May 10 at 6:30 p.m. ready to catch some frogs. Event planners will conduct a mandatory safety meeting at 7 p.m. before sending you on your way to start giggin’.
The Frog Giggin Tournament Series by Riverbank Products started in 2012 and unlike a bass tournament, this is a team event. Teams must work together and search for frogs on Friday night within a 60 mile radius of the tournament sight. Total bag limit per team is 15 frogs and biggest frog and biggest bag weight will receive payouts. Payouts will increase by 25 percent if a child younger than 16 is a member of the team.
There is also a new addition to this year’s tournament series. During Saturday’s Weigh-In, live frogs caught during the tournament will be entered into the Frog Race. Much like herding cats, teams encourage their frog to run the race course. The first frog to cross the finish line wins. It’s sure to make for great entertainment.
