Ok I need help from the forum. I have come up with a new tournament for our area that I think (hope) will be successful for all involved. First and foremost, the event will not be profitable for me or any other individual involved.ALL proceeds WILL go to Covenant Hospice and the way I have it set up they are guaranteed to make at least a little money. Here's where I need your help at this point. I am meeting with a potential host site's management team on Friday and I would like to show them there is interest in the event. So here's what I have so far. The event would be held in the PERDIDO KEY AREA should it come to fruition.With a host site and a tremendous sponsorship turnoutand some volunteers to help outthis event will happen....

NO BOUNDARIES......ANOTHER PORT??? AT THIS POINT I AM GOING TO SAY YES. THE REGISTERED CAPTAIN WILL BE REQUIRED TO ATTEND THE CAPTAINS MEETING TO PICK UP THE BOAT NUMBER/ID CARD WHICH WILL BE USED FOR WEIGH IN PURPOSES AND SIGN OUT AT THE END OF THE MEETING. MY DESIRE IS TO HAVE A SHORT AND SWEET MEETING TO DISCUSS ANY CONCERNS AND THEN BREAK OUT. NOTHING FANCY PLANNED THERE AS OF YET. THIS OF COURSE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.....

That's exactly what we need for our area:clap I'm sure there will be a bunch of replies for this to take place. Good luck and we'll keep those fingers crossed.

Brad,

You can count on Team Strictly Bizness to compete. I bet i can rally up a few more entries from my circle of friends. Also let me know if I can be of any help to you (maybe a pre tournament volunteer if needed). But my team will definitely enter. I wan't to see as many of these local tourneys as possible. Good Luck!!!!!

I expect that Team Share-it would want a piece of that action. Hope the ideabears fruit. I work indirectly with the Hospice group and they do some fine work for those in need. Keep us informed of your progress and if there is some way we can get involved we will.

I like the interest shown so far being that it is only December and a lot of people aren't as active on the forum right now. Put the word out and let's get some more interest generated so we can make this happen. It's going to be hard for little ol' me to get this to happen on my own.

I would gladly volunteer my help if you need it. I don't have any experience in doing something like this but I is a perty lerned guy. Seriously though if you need volunteers shoot me a pm. I have fished in a king mack tourn many years ago and I enjoy just going to tournaments since I don't have the resources to fish one right now. I think it would be fun to be involved and I have lots of time on my hands.

I'll do what I can to help in any way I can Brad. Just let me know and as I said on KC.com, I'm sure I can scare a team together for a local tourney.

Brad, seriously let me know if I can help. Not sure if I will have a boat then but would love to fish the tournament. I am sure I can find someone to fish with. All I need is a ride to the saddle with one 3 lb hardtail, a tld20, and a 7/0 "J" hook on some #7 wire. On like a chicken bone!!!!

I am insterested in helping with a small sponshorship as well if thats appropriate.

PJ and reelsmooth,

Thanks for the kind replies and offers to participate and contribute to the effort. I feel like the meeting went well on Friday and I remain optimistic that this event will take place. Everyone keep your fingers crossed and I will do all I can to tailor this event to the customers desires while keeping in mind a fair and level playing field for all participants. Besides what else is there to do on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend around here?? I'll keep everyone posted on this thread and will make an announcement on a new thread when there are more official details. Thank you all foryour support. Remember this is not for me, it's for you and Covenant Hospice.

Brad,

Let me know when its time to start getting sponsors together. I have a few contacts that I could scare up and forward on to you. I think we could get a couple of them on board. Just give me a call.
