Great news about the Bass Pro Shops Lake Havasu Open and Family Fishing Festival May 5-6, 2012!
We have now confirmed that with a minimum participation of 75 boats we will be giving away a fully rigged Nitro Z7 with a Mercury Outboard.
We wanted to make this event stand out from other tournaments, and also eliminate the local advantage. Because this is not a year end championship and it is an event that anyone can enter, the boat will be given away in a limited raffle. Anglers that finish in the Top 10% of the field will have an opportunity to win the boat. Friday night at the pre-tournament meeting we will draw a number out of a bag (ie 100 boats = 10 chips, places 1 through 10 or 10%). That number will be placed in a sealed envelope. No one will know what number is drawn until Sunday at the awards. The number that is drawn will be the place that wins the boat. Other prize money and prizes will shift accordingly.
In addition to the two day team tournament we will have ride and drives of all the lines of tracker boats, kids casting contests, and a kids fishing tournament on Sunday. All kids must be supervised by an adult and bring their own equipment.
We have reserved a special rate at two local hotels. Both the Days Inn 928-855-7841 and Quality Inn 928-855-1111 have special rates for this event. Just mention the Bass Pro Shops Open when you book.
