    I understood what the Roundhill said-I dont understand why you are having trouble. i guess it helps living in SC for 39 yrs, lol!
    If Roundhill dont mind me translating- it reads he is making his schedule for the year and that all tourneys should have the handicap exemption and allow a handicap fisherman along with a two party team!!! If so he will probably see you there!
    Holler back if your tourney allows the two partner team with a handicap fisherman?:tongue:

    That sounds like a very fair idea to me.

    You don't have to be handicapped to have a third fishing partner. I fish with my mother and son in lots of tourneys. Most tourney rules state, when you have a two person team and you want a third person in the boat, they must be 65 years of age or older or 16 years of age or younger. I love this rule!! it allows me to fish with my mother and my son at the same time. By the time my mother is 65 my son will be 16 so we should be able to fish tourneys together for a long time together. By the way I think my mother is looking forward to this fishing season more than me. Rolol And further more I don't feel that having a third person in the boat is a big advantage, heck most of the time I think my mother and son would do better without me. LOL
