    Camping is first come fist serve, not sure on prices yet, still working out the details!!! I will try and contact Adel City Hall to get prices and such early next week.

    I have secured the registered tournament license signed and sealed with me here.

    Sounds about right Chris! Me and you will meet soon and go over it one more time.

    Still need trophy donations from:

    Preston

    Mike

    Marcus

    If you will be unable to donate then let me or Chris know ASAP so we can figure it out. THANKS!!!

    There may or may not be a few barley pops drank during that time! That is when we are going to do the potluck and the drawings for door prizes!

    We want to make sure that everyone has a chance to meet and hang out, even us diehards need a break once in awhile to mingle!!!

    Thanks to you all who have been working to put this all together!

    I plan to bring my bait tank, which is a motified cooler, aerator, and 12 volt invertor to help with keeping juice runnning to the bait tanks. Let me know if there is something you all need. I may have it or be able to find some one who does.

    Bryan, welcome to the B.O.C! Try one of Steve's Penns before Chris suckers you into a Abu. LOL Nothing wrong with an Abu at all but that Penn will double a winch if you stick your vehicle!:smile2: Listen to the bros, they know their stuff!

    Anyone here from JD? Is he going to be there this year? Missed him last year due an illness in his family.

    Kenny, let me know if you are taking your boat. I have a seasoned pin oak laying in my back yard that needs cut up and burned. If you have room for a few peices in your boat I'm sure it will get used at the gathering. My blazer will be fully loaded with very little room for wood. Just a thought.

    Hey Kenny....what's your cell number? I thought about calling you last night...I went down to Oakland, the wife turned me loose last night. I didn't stay long, kind of boring fishing by myself. I did catch a 3 pound channel on a cut up bluegill so it wasn't a total waste.
