Default Oroville Cancelled!

FLW cancelled the Oroville event. It may be rescheduled in May sometime. Oh well.

Not yet Phil. I did talk to FLW at about 11AM and they said it was canceled but didn't have any details about a replacement. They said we will be receiving a call. Sure am glad I went through the same thing at Shasta NG. I may have been a little more vested in this event. I only spent hundreds instead of the thousands I could have committed. Almost had the kid pulled from school on finals week, etc. Nothing like waiting till the last minute. You would think this was a club tournament not a National event.

Easy to happen. I sat at the NG pairings meeting at Mead when Chris Jones said contrary to any rumor we guarantee that Shasta is on as planned. We will not be moving the tournament. Kind of talked down to the rumor. We drove to Columbia with all our Shasta gear ready to fish Columbia, drop the boat in Redding and fly back to San Diego. At the pairings meeting in Washington they drop the bomb that Shasta has been changed to Delta. Takes a little different gear to fish Delta than Shasta. Tough to make changes like this with the long distance we travel.

Been there done that. My boat is up near Oroville as we speak. I'll make the drive up and fish Shasta in prep for the Won Bass.

Things happen and I understand that this was the best given the launching situation and the forcast of rain on Tuesday/Wednesday of next week.

PS-They are still the best show in town.

My boat is there as well.....can't say I am at all surprised, it is the right decision ....but like I said before, you could see this coming a month ago. There's optomism and then there's reality!!
See ya at Shasta,

I'm glad they did this it was a train wreck waiting to happen. I am sure that you won't find very many people upset with this decision. At least they had a legite reason this time.

They just called me so the calls are coming. I told Pat to refund my entry. They don't need my 825 plus the kid's 325 in their account.
