I have recieved a few entry forms, but still looking for more anglers.  Please contact me if you are interested in fishing and I can send a form over to you.  Also, I am happy to announce that Fishidy.com has gotten on board to sponsor this event and help with the prize money.

We are just a little over one month away from this tournament taking place.  Anyone planning on fishing this event?

Well, this event "took place" this past Saturday.  Early last week, the two boats I had pre-registered called to inform me they could not attend the event, but I was still hopeful that I would get at least a few people show up the morning of.  I headed out to Kent Lake, and after no one showed up after the first half hour, I made a sign stating that the tournament was canceled and placed it by the driveway to the launch.  I waited in my truck until a little after seven when the registration closed, took my sign down, and drove home.  I was hoping for a good event to raise some decent money for Camp Liberty, but I guess it wasn't meant to be.
Looking back now, I realize that September might not be a good time to hold a tournament like this.  Even though this tournament proved to be unsuccessful, I am going to try again to have another tournament fundraiser for Camp Liberty.  I'm thinking early next season on St. Clair.
Because I want my next attempt to be successful, please give me feedback on what you think might help draw people to want to fish a fundraising tournament.  Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.
