    I am trying to organize things with a partner to come down there. Those of you who fish the riverbend, cabelas, or bass pro tournaments may know him. His name is Mark Farrow. If he and I can arrange our days off to attend, we will be there. If not, I intend to make the trip, even if I don't fish.

    Yes Willie. You can have a third partner in the boat if they are under 16 Or over 65 years old.

    Looking forward to seeing you all there..... :0a31:

    I was under the understanding that the shootout was under a seperate deal than the riverbend tournaments. Unless there is a scheduling conflict with a riverbend tournament at the same time. Mark and I were talking at work the other day and discussing the possibility of fishing the shootout together. Maybe his shedule slipped his mind. Am I missing something?? I am kinda confused by the above post.:confused2::confused2:

    I just looked at the riverbend schedule and I see what you guys are talking about. :sad2: Looks like the schedule wasn't totally clear in Mark's head. In his defense, we were at work and he didn't have anything in front of him telling him any schedules. It appears as though I am S.O.L.:sad2: I still intend to make the trip, even if I can't fish. Hoping to be able to enjoy myself :wink:

    Hey I have been on the Phone all day getting confirmation on sponsorship stuff. So far it looks like we have over $5000.00 in give aways for our drawings.

    looks like SeaArk and Suzuki are going to provide the Food and Drinks(BEER) for the Sat.night BBQ.

    Lebanon Suzuki is going to have some SeaArk boats on display for us.

    Tombstone tackle jumped in for some stuff.
    Mo.River Outfitters is on board.
    Mid-West gun works is providing some cool outer wear.
    Team Catfish of course

    The list is growing everyday.

    We updated our web site on CatfishSafari.com so you may want to take a look at the ShootOut page.

    Oh yea here's a sneek peek at Johns new ride. The pictures are not the best but I can tell you the boat looks GREAT!!!!
