Parents, Youth and Boaters,
This is the final Information on the Michigan Junior State Championship. This is also the final confirmation e-mail. I want to make sure all the youths get the email and not miss anyone. I also need to know who is bringing there boats. I have received boaters confirmation but I just want to make sure I do not miss anyone. So please respond to this e-mail Thanks.

2012 TBF Junior State Championship
When: June 9, 2012
Where: Pontiac Lake
Launch: Pontiac State Park
Check in Time: Starts 7:00am
Launch Time: 8:00am
Time of Tournament: 6 Hrs
Ages: 11-14 and 15 to 18
Address: 2401 North Williams Rd Waterford, MI 48327

The Gate for the park will be open at 7:00am

The equipment the youths are responsible for bringing are: fishing rods (no more then 6), tackle (no live bait), if they have their own life jackets (we will have some spares), sun block and rain gear (we all know Michigan weather). We will have some snacks for the kids to take on the boat but they can bring their own. Youths that are 17 years old must have a Michigan fishing license.

Where we are having this event at the State Park and they said they would try to get us some picnic tables in the area but just in case you might want to bring some chairs or a blanket for the ground.

During the tournament each youth will have control of the front of the boat for half the day.
After the tournament we will be having a cookout. Before the youths can eat they must weigh their fish in.

After everything is done and all the fish are weighed in and all the youths have eaten we will then present the two winners.

The two winners will be going to Lake Lanier, Georgia for the 2012 National Guard Junior Championship.

The morning is going to be very hectic, so try not to show up at 7:45am.  I would like to see the youths there between 7:00am and 7:30am. We will be having a short meeting at 7:45 (or sooner), this is going to be a very large event we have 60 youths fishing and 30 boats. The boat launch is going to be a very busy place. During registration we will try to pair up the kids with there boater.  There will be people there to help get the kids on their boats and onto the water. When parents come into the park we ask that all parents park towards the back part of the parking lot. We want to keep the front open up for our boaters so we can get the youths into there boats.

Boaters: First of all thank you for coming out and helping with our youth event. You as a boater are guides for these kids.  Some of them will know where they want to go and what they will be fishing with. There are some that will need our help. You are allowed to net their fish if they want and can make some suggestions on spots and lures. Remember these are the tournament anglers of the future and our sport needs it. You might even learn something from some of the youths. Any questions feel free to contact me either by e-mail or cell phone. One other thing I need from all the boaters is I need to confirm you are going to be there. Send me back an e-mail to let me know. I need to know what kind of boat you have (color, make and motor) as well to help get the kids to their boat.  We are still looking for a couple of more boats so let me know. 

I need all to Reply to this e-mail (248-361-6372). Just reply to me not to all. I do not want to miss out on any kids or boaters.
