There is a $3 launch fee per vehicle, don’t forget to fill out an envelope and deposit in the box and place the tag on your dash so it is visible.

Do not launch your boat until you have checked in, completed the boat check and met up with your co-angler.

SAFETY – Life jackets MUST be worn when the outboard motor is running.  This includes coming in to beach the boat, taking the boat on and off the trailer.  If you are on the boat, the outboard is running, life jacket MUST be on for all aboard.  Failure to do so can result in disqualification in the tournament.

OFF LIMITS – Buoyed area around the dam, the beach areas, and 100 feet on either side of the launch.  Areas posted BOATS KEEP OUT means no casting into that area either.

Boater must fish from the front deck and the rider must fish from the rear deck only.

It is suggested that the cost of the gas/oil used during the day be shared between the boater and the rider.

This will be a trailered weigh in.

When you weigh-in, come up to the table, turn in your numbers, get and sign your weigh-in slips (keep them), then get in line for a bag.  Get your fish from your boat; have bag dinked & weighed. Give me your slip, verify weight and get your pink copy.  Return fish to water and return bags to table where you got them.

I have done everything possible to try to find enough co-anglers to even out the field.  I have discussed the outcome with the tournament committee, and WE have decided to allow 6 boaters to fish alone.  The pairings were done so that no angler/co-angler from the same club would be fishing together.

A special thanks to Mike Prentiss for doing the boat check, to Bob DeHaas for helping do some last minute boat repair, and to Herb Wadsworth for helping with the weigh in.  Congratulations to the winners.  There were some very nice fish caught.  Rex had the biggest bag weighed in at a district tournament since I took over as TD.  The year to date standings have been posted at the bottom of the District 2 tournament page.  Thanks for a great season.
