There will be a $75 contest fee. ALL CONTEST ENTRY MONEY PLUS ANY SPONSOR MONEY WILL GO DIRECTLY TOWARD TROPHIES, CASH AWARDS AND CERTIFICATES TO 1st THROUGH 3rd PLACE FINISHERS.

Based on an estimated entry of at least 10 contestants the prize fund is estimated at approximately $1,250 in cash, plaques and certificates.

The actual tournament will take place on Sunday between 11 AM and Noon depending on when the park opens, allowing an hour of warm-ups. Informal throwing and practice sessions will take place all day Saturday between Noon and 5 PM. There is a BBQ picnic Saturday evening in conjunction with the Wild West Arts Club.

A lunch break will take place if necessary. There is no fee to join the WFKT. Anyone is eligible to compete. There will be no women's nor novice divisions.
