Thanks for the info. No need to apologize. Just a few questions. Do I send the entry form in now and pay day of tourney, Do not like to send cash in the mail? Do you guys have membership dues or does anyone get in? And for living in Bloomington most all my life and my dad refusing always to pay the yearly or even daily fees to fish Evergreen or Lake Bloomington, does Evergreen have a drop box for fees, or does the park office have to be open? And I am assuming we can be there and have the boat off the trailer early as I do not have a kicker moter so I will be puttering around the lake on the Trolling Motor.
Thanks Jeff

No membershi dues, everyone welcome.
I believe they ahve a drop box.
Yes, you can be in the water, we will do a livewell check before the tournament. It's not that we don't trust people, its that if there is an accusation we wont have a leg to stand one without the inspection.

I have had several calls about the tournament. Shaping up to be a great event and the weather is going to be perfect.

I'll be camping over the weekend, leaving tomorrow.

See you all on the water Saturday.
