Brad, this tourney sounds awesome. I really like the way you have laid out the rules and divisions. Finally, a tournament where a single engine 23 and under can do some good. Here's to ya Brad. :toast

I would encourage all anglers that do or have always wanted to fish a tournament to come out for this one. This is definitely going to be a tourney where thesmall boats cancompete. I hope to see a lot of anglers at the capt's meeting.

Great to hear. I really would like to see this event happen. I am good for an entry but I'm notconnected with the local business scene enough to provide help with sponsorship. Do you have a goal set to how much you would like to raise for hospice?

I would love to get into the 5 digit range. That's going to take a major level of sponsorship and entries but I think it's possible. The payout runs close to $26k so once the sponsorship opportunities come to a close I will better be able to make guarantees on the payouts and as to how many boats it will take to keep the payout structure how it is. If we are able to make the entire payout in sponsorships then half to two thirds of every entry will go directly to hospice and we will use the rest to bulk up the payout structure. My personal goal is to get 50 boats. I have had 25 respond to personal messages with a serious interest in participating. Hypothetically, if all the sponsorships came in and all 25 entered all aspects of the event (target wt and twt's) hospice would make close to $10k.

Still have a bunch of lines in the water fishing for potential sponsors. I am still optimistic. At the end of February I should be in a better position to tell if it will happen as planned or if things may need tweeking. I'm not giving up easily!!

Question: Is it mandatory for the captain to be at the meeting or can a member of the team go to it.

Reason: I'm on shift the 23rd, 24 hours and the department has a rule that if you're on shift the on the days of 23-26, you can't take off, I can make the tourney just not the capt. meeting.
