The Season for the Rod and Gun Club Members is continuing in to April with some outstanding events. Check these out and add to your calendar!
All Craft Fishing Tournament (NEW)
The first annual All-Craft Tournament will be held March 31st-April 14th. This is a two angler/team fishing competition with no charge registration to all current Rod & Gun Club members.
Participants are required to pick two fishing days within the two-week window. Points will be scored for each of the two days. Winners will be determined by OVERALL points scored. All fish in the weight scoring categories are to be weighed at the MarineMax tackle shop between 3 and 4 p.m. on the fishing day in which they were caught. Each team is responsible for turning in their fully completed score sheets no later than 4:30 p.m. In the event of a scoring tie, the tie breaker will be the team who scored the amount first. A bi-weekly update of team scoring will be sent by group email during the tournament period, along with a scoring board in the MarineMax tackle shop.
Registration for this great NEW tournament must be submitted no later than Monday, March 29th. All forms, including entry forms and rules can be picked up at MarineMax tackle shop or downloaded from the rodandgun.org website. Winning teams of first, second, and third place will be notified on April 15th. Prizes will be awarded along with trophies to winners.
