  • Instructions for Perch Festival Participants


     In order enter to win, you must first register at https://orilliaca.chambermaster.com/eventregistration/register/482 . Cost is $5 for children and $25 for adults (payment to be made online by credit card at time of registration). 

    If you registered in 2020, your registration has been automatically carried forward to this year (unless you requested a refund). 


    Fishing ID Number

    When you register online, you will receive 3 emails. The second of these 3 contains your registration confirmation number. Your fishing ID is the last five digits of your registration confirmation number. Be sure to keep this number on hand. 

    If you registered in person in 2020, you would have received a copy of your registration form with a four-digit number stamped in red. If you registered in-person in 2020, your fishing ID number is the four-digit number from your registration form with a "0" added to the beginning. (e.g. if the red number stamped on your form is 2222, your fishing ID is 02222).

    If you registered multiple people and have the same confirmation number, add a letter to each person's number to differentiate. If in doubt, just use the same confirmation number for all participants. 

    You will need your fishing ID each time that you enter a perch.
