Reschedule Notice

Posted by jps on March 17, 2017


Do to the cancelling of the tournament at Lake O. This put us in a very uncomfortable situation.

I truly didn't want to cancel the tournament. But made over 15 different phone calls throughout the day to weather persons. Everyone said bad weather was coming in the area. I visited with some of our sponsors and other members then made the call to cancel. Then look at what happened on the weather. Sunny. Unbelievable. You know if we had the tournament we would have gotten 12" of snow and made Snow Angels on the front deck of our boats. My main concern were the safety of all the children, families, and spectators. Especially when your dealing with 200+ teams.

I have been in visits with different groups and we have worked out a reasonable solution to hopefully make everything work. We are going to cancel Smithville lake tournament on April 2 and move the tournament to Truman lake out of Long Shoal. We will have the south division on the 1st and North division on the 2nd of April. Then we will be having our North Division Championship Tournament at Lake O on Sunday Oct 1. This will be some Amazing Fishing.

The regattas have been approved today. Since all of the weekend schedules are crazy and over booked. This is the only time we could reschedule the make up tournaments, do to several other large events in the Lake O area and other events in different areas. Everyone wanted to make sure we were still going to Lake O. The other dates will all stay the same. The Mark Twain Lake will just be a qualifying event, instead of the championship.

This will definitely be some fun times for fishing for all the High and Middle School Anglers.

Thank You to everyone for all the support.

Let's Go. FISHING.
