OK. Everything is just tentative for now and in the planning stages. What is being considered is a fishing tournament to benefit the Salvation Army sometime in early Sept. There will be 4 classes of registration open to all ages , kind of derby style and tournament style at the same time. Prizes will be based on Number of entries and donations that are brought in from different tackle shops and businneses. The person who is getting this together is a friend of mine and sits on the board of directors for the Salvation Army. So im putting this on here to get a feel for any interest that may be out there for such an event that could become an annual event at C.J. , and could become a very big event in the future.
Any comments or thoughts on this would be appreciated.
Sounds like a great idea! One thing to possibly keep in mind though is goose/teal season usually comes in on Septemeber 1. They say you can't hunt CJ until after Labor Day. I say this to hopefully eliminate any unwanted tension between hunters/fisherman... I won't effect me at all as I don't hunt out there that early, but just wanted to throw it out there!
the 4 classes in thought right now are , catfish, walleye, bass , and crappie.
There is a seperate registration for each class to keep it tourney style. there will be winner by total weight and a winner for biggest fish in each category. NOTE: ALL fishing regulations , boat regulations, and size limit , and daily limits will be observed .
Thanks for that piece of info Chuck. That is definately something to keep in mind. The exact date hasnt been set in stone yet but it will be in sept. These are the types of things that we need input on , and opinions etc. We are avid fishermen yet we dont follow all sports that are around water such as water foul hunting. So again thank you .
Good luck, as that date stands Ill be at another tourney at GLSM but dates need to be set and go with them, I know the HUGE charity tourney at Brookville is "usually" the 2nd or 3rd week in Sept so the 8th may be a good date.
Please keep us in the loop once a final date is set. My calander for the whole year is about full now already and Im still waiting for a few more solid dates from a few other tourney trails to show up. To many tourneys and not enough time or money for all of them, LOL
