    These rules are subject to change until the first tournament at which time they will become final. The Tournament Director reserves the right to adjust the tournament schedule to avoid conflicts with other tournaments or to avoid potentially unsafe weather conditions.

    Any disputes will be settled by me, or the acting Tournament Director, and the Golden Rule.

    Do you guys realize we’ve been fight high water since last season? I hope it calms down before we fire things up. I haven’t been out since the Classic, to busy duck hunting. But starting to get the itch. Going to FL this weekend for mom’s 70th birthday but will hit the water when I get back.
