Friday night setting get up we had a little drizzle but it was obvious that it wasn't going to last long but we still set up for possible storms by tenting under the Page Park Pavillion.

We had 25 People Register that night, and we had a little Cake to celebrate the Old Man  getting older.

And after two days and 14 hours of fishing everyone gathered for the Results and the Awards Ceremony. It was nice to see many stay to celebrate the winners, even if they didn't win.....

Sportsmanship at its Best
