May want to reschedule the 6th Event: Saturday September 17, 2016 tournament. That is the same time as the Sealy Outdoors Big Bass Splash. Many guys would probably like to fish both, but per there rules you can't be on the water after 7 or 8pm. Just a thought.

I have one question about the entry fee. Is it $100 per person or $100 per team?
