2017 Perchin for MS Ice Fishing Tournament is going to a draw!

For Immediate Release: February 25, 2017

It is with great disappointment that we announce the following:

With public safety concerns being at the forefront due to the current weather and change in ice conditions, we are making the decision to cancel the fishing component of the tournament this year.

The current ice conditions on Lake Simcoe out of Sibbald Point Provincial Park do not support a safe environment for the large number of participants expected. (500 plus).

We will therefore be going to a draw for cash and prizes as per tournament rules and past precedents.

The day will include the draw for cash and prizes, Barbeque, auctions and some fun raffles. Teams must be present to win cash and prizes.

Please arrive after 11am. The draw and Auctions will begin to take place at 12:30.
Please see our website for further details on the auction and day of events

Examples of some auction items:

  • Chaudiere Lodge 5-night All Inclusive Fishing getaway
  • Fishing4Tails Lake Ontario charter
  • 7 day Totomenai Lodge Fishing getaway
  • One week Lower Twin Lakes Fishing getaway
  • 4 night Waterfalls Lodge Getaway for 2

Even though mother nature has thrown us a curve ball this year, we have to remember that the main focus is and must remain on MS - Multiple Sclerosis. Doug Poirier was diagnosed in late 2009 with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. Doug's MS unfortunately has continued to get worse and he now is using a wheelchair. It hasn’t stopped him though. Doug continues to keep the fight going and to try and show others that life doesn’t stop just because you have a disability. “That is what this tournament is all about.” says Poirier.

To date Perchin for MS has raised over $100 000.00 towards helping people with MS and finding a cure!
