Each team will only need one (1) ENTRY form for all three team members. Each team member, including the boat captain, will need to fill out and sign the WAIVER & RELEASE form. Every student angler, no matter their age, must have parent signatures on the WAIVER & RELEASE form.

You will turn in the ENTRY FORM, all three WAIVER & RELEASE forms and the entry fee ($80 per two-man team) on the morning of the tournament between 5:30a and 6:00a. You will be required to sign in and register as a team, so all three team members (2 student anglers and 1 boat captain) must be present to register that morning.

If any student wants to fish this event but doesn't have a boat or a boat driver, email me and I can try to line you up with both. I have some guys on stand-by waiting for the call.

Also, you can present the tournament flyer at the Atlanta Bass Pro and receive a 15% discount on fishing items the Friday before the tournament (October 17th). You can also receive a pro-discount at Hammond's Fishing Center on the Friday before the tournament.

c-rig...I know it! Being a big hunter myself I hated to have it on opening day but it was the only weekend we could do it.

It won't be opening weekend next year!
