Due to the smaller size of the tournament committee this year we are going to be very busy from February forward. There are two things the membership could do to help us. First and foremost, please sign up for the tournament as early as possible and don't wait until the last week or day, this puts a tremendous strain on the committee to process all of the applications so close to the sign-up deadline which is Friday, June 9th at the club. You may also sign-up online at this page. The other thing you can do to help, is to sign-up to man a weigh station during the tournament .We can't have a tournament without volunteers to weigh the fish in and handle the paperwork. The weigh station sign up board is in the front hall of the club when you walk in. If you have any questions about the weigh stations ask myself or Don Mullen at the next meeting or call me at 716-462-9576.
