Classic announcement – Locking

Just a quick announcement before this weekends’ Classic: We have decided to ease the rules on locking. Teams are still permitted to lock-through to adjoining lakes, but we will NOT require teams to show the Executive the actual lock pass in advance for this event. Teams simply need to inform Trevor at boat-check that they intend to lock-through.
We believe this will make it a bit easier on teams looking to lock but unable to get the pass in advance.

2012 Team Of The Year!

A big congratulations go out to Russell and Tyler France, Team #16, for having the highest total of 4 events! Their total Team Of The Year weight was a whopping 66.67 lbs (4 events, average = 16.67lbs/event) and an average fish size of 3.33lbs!
