THIS IS A OPEN TEAM FORMAT you can fish with anyone you'd like. We are still trying to pair up Volunteer Boaters with Wounded Soldiers / Veterans to be teamed up to compete in the event together. It's a small gesture to give thanks for the sacrifices made by our Men and Women who served this great NATION.

2nd Annual Operation Comfort Benefit Tournament
SEPT 10th, 2016 on Lake Palestine

Operation Comfort is a non profit organization that provides support to our Services Members who were WOUNDED in the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. They offer events , projects to the service members to provide them an outlet and relief during their recovery process as well as financial aid to relieve the burden on them and their families during this stressful and testing time.

We whole heartedly believe in Operation Comfort as 2 members of the Hookset Brothers were beneficiaries to their support and events during their recovery process from their wounds sustained in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This year we are upping the anty to improve on last years turnout and results.

$5000 1st place Prize Guarantee by Bass Pro Shops & Sherwin Williams Paints
&
$500 Big Bass Prize sponsored by Rod Armorz

There will be tons of Prizes and Door Prizes you won't want to miss this one... We're already up to $11,000 in Cash and Prizes not counting payouts based on turnout handed to our Anglers with more Prizes to come plus this tourney is to SUPPORT THE SOLDIERS OF OUR GREAT COUNTRY.

Entry Fee is $150 Per Team
Registration Dates
Sept 3rd at Raising Canes of Tyler from 1 - 6pm and you will received a free box chicken meal
Sept 8th & 9th at Tracker Boating Center of Tyler from 1 - 7pm
Sept 9th at Tracker Boating Center of Longview from Noon to Close
Sept 10th at Tracker Boating Center of Tyler from 430am - 6am

FREE TOURNAMENT SHIRTS WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Folks the 1st place prize does not come from ENTRY FEES its sponsored money so our payouts will be top notch and prizes lets just say are pretty darn sweet if it keeps getting better I'm gonna have to stop organizing this and fish it myself. We aren't one of them tournaments that have to raffle off everything we love for our Anglers to walk away happy and have a chance to win some amazing prizes and door prizes that don't finish in the payout places.

The weigh in will be offsite at Tracker Boating Center of Tyler with a Bass Master Classic type weigh in where you will pull your truck and boat in front of stage for your weigh in that will be run by Danny Smith the Fishers of Men North Central Division Director and we have a live well tank to return all fish back to the Lake.

There will be a community event to follow the weigh in with vendors , bouncy houses and food and drink available for purchase with all proceeds going to Operation Comfort.

Last years 1st Ever Operation Comfort Benefit Tournament had a total of 33 boats signed up but amazingly we had a total of 20 Veterans / Soldiers apart of the 33 that were competing for the grand prize of $2500 by 2 Major Sponsors Bass Pro Shops / Tracker Boating Center of Tyler & Classic Toyota of Tyler plus great prizes by some amazing local companies. 8 of the 20 Veterans / Soldiers were brought from Brooke Army Medical Center by Operation Comfort that were still in their recovery process that were paired up with volunteer boaters throughout our community. We were able to raise a total of $5000 and 100% went to Operation Comfort to help them continue on with their efforts and between Cash And Prizes gave out more than $6k to the Anglers.

Between Trail Championships , Club Championships and other opens its very hard not to book a date that sadly may coincide with others booked in the fall. Our last year date worked great besides booking it the same weekend as a Triton Owners but this year the Tyler Ford Open was on the date we wanted and didn't want to compete for local angler turnout. All opens and trails have their following and great causes and it's not our intent to take away from any of them but we were limited to available weekends in the fall so that we could have a number of Wounded Soldiers from the Brooke Army Medical Center come and compete in the tournament as well.

Texas is full of Anglers and we were even able to pull some from Oklahoma and Lousiana last year and hopefully every open or tourney that is scheduled that weekend will get their due turnout for their causes. Last year our turnout was good for our first ever team open benefit tournament and the Veteran / Soldier turnout was just as amazing and looking to build on it this year.

Just hoping for another great turnout for such an amazing organization - Operation Comfort

Super stoked to announce Sherwin Willaims just signed on board to be a Titled Sponsor... It goes without saying their support is a direct reflection on their companies values when it comes to supporting our Men and Women who serve this great country.

Folks when it comes to any project in or outside your house or business there's no better place to go than Sherwin Williams. They're covering the Earth one paint can at a time. I frequent the Tyler store location often and the associates there are full of southern hospitality and knowledgable about what best fits your needs for every project.

Also want to express a huge thank you to Brian Fox a Sherwin Williams fishermen from the Grapevine, Tx Bass Pro Shops for helping bring their support to our Operation Comfort Benefit Tournament. We look very much forward to seeing his wrapped boat parked in front of stage of course after he and a wounded soldier he has volunteered to partner up with weigh in their tournament bag.

TRACKER BOATING CENTER OF TYLER does it again FOLKS

It's an honor to let y'all know we've just secured $700 worth of Bass Pro Gift Cards to hand out to some lucky Anglers at the weigh in activities... Let's say the folks at Tracker Boating Center of Tyler not only is allowing us to use their location as the official weigh in location but the General Manager Jason Shank helped secured Bass Pro Shops as one of our Titled Sponsors of the event and that's a godsend in itself.

If you want the chance to be handed either 2 of the $250 or 2 of the $50 Bass Pro Gift Cards you have to come out and compete and support our Wounded Soldiers. For those of you who are counting what adds up to $700 well the last $100 Bass Pro Gift Cards goes out to something special. The BIGGEST BASS weighed in by a Soldier / Veteran will receive the $100 Bass PronGift Card awarded by Tracker Boating Center of Tyler.

So not only are they the home of the hassel free high performance bass boat but they sell the leading bass boat brand nationwide in the bass boat market last 3 years running.

Operation Comfort does some amazing things for our Wounded Soldiers while they recover from Wounds sustained in the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. They offer projects and trips that enable the soldier to get their mind off the everyday struggle of recovery and gets them outdoors or involved with others alike that will challenge themselves physically and emotionally. They offer financial aid to the soldier and their family during these trying times when most have to uproot their families or put jobs and careers on hold to take care of their loved one when they need it the most.

Great Payouts / Prizes / Door Prizes
The 1st Place Prize comes from Sponsorship money and is not pulled from entry fees. Last year we gave out more than $6500 in cash and Prizes. For 2016 we've upped the ante to get the turnout Operation Comfort Deserves and have already surpassed $8500 in cash and prizes.

Operation Comfort will once again be bringing Wounded Soldiers to compete with volunteer boaters as well as Veterans / Soldiers throughout our community that would like to be paired with volunteer boaters. This is a Open Team Format but we really enjoyed the fact that last year we had a total of 20 Veterans in the field with other Anglers through Texas and Oklahoma. If you're interested in volunteering to be paired with a Soldier please contact us.

Spread the word - Operation Comfort deserves our support because they simply can't take care of our Wounded Soldiers without it... If you've ever wanted to support a 501c3 organization this is truly one of the good ones.

All proceeds raised go straight to Operation Comfort so they can continue on their MISSION. Our team Hookset Brothers are just the organize and run this tournament as a way to give back to an Organization that supported 2 out of 3 member of our Team while we recovered from our own Wounds sustained in the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. They are truly on of the good ones, if you ever wanted to support a 501c3 organization that truly does what they say they do this is your chance.

For the 2016 Operation Comfort Benefit Tournament we are proud to say we are allowing any Texas High School Bass Association Fishing Team that doesn't have a sanctioned tournament the same weekend to compete in our event with their normal boat captain. However if your team and boat captain do come out to fish our event we prefer that the boat captain doesn't fish as it may cause issue with other competitors. But if the urge to fish is to much to bare the boat captains fish doesn't count towards weigh in and subject to polygraph.

Please remember this event is to raise funds for Operation Comfort an organization that does so much for our Wounded Soldiers and turnout is vital on keeping them successful. The bigger the turnout the bigger the payouts after the GUARANTEE 1st place price of $5,000

Bigger turnout even bigger payouts.... I've boat captain last year and his year for Bullard High School and thou it is hard to not fish the entire day it's very rewarding to watch the boys work and take pride in their catch...

We pride ourselves in being able to offer Prizes and Door Prizes to our Anglers who finish outside of the Payout Places and don't forget our 1st Place Guarantee $5,000 prize. We want our Anglers to leave happy and have the chance to walk away with something for competing in our event. Operation Comfort continues to serve and support our WOUNDED SOLDIERS and this event serves as a way to help them remain successful in helping them during their recovery from wounds sustained in WAR. There are many events to choose from and all deserve a great turnout for their perspective CAUSES we hope there's enough Anglers to go around and everyone has a GREAT TURNOUT....

I'm excited to announce that
