We have a website set up www.wnwwarriors.webs.com. Check it out the next few events are posted on the bottom right of the page or check out the Calender page.
Also doing night events can cause more problems for participants being that its night. If you wanna fish night events you can check out the drifters at www.iowacatfishdriftersinc.com. I think their site is down now but you can call Tom @641-579-6252. Plus the fees for some of the lakes cost double if it overlaps days.
We will be trying to have 8-10 events next year half day and half night events. Then after the trail we will try to do another State Tournament.
Hawkeye it looks like the river should be up plenty good for your event! I cant wait for next weekend! If you need anything let me know! Ill help out of you need it. Good luck to everyone!
