In addition to the tournament, we will also have other events for the whole family. Myself, Jordan Lee, and Matt Reed will be conducting seminars throughout the day. We'll also have a kids casting contest with 3 age groups and prizes awarded to the top 3 kids in each division. The overall kids casting winner will receive an Old Town Predator Kayak valued at $1300. Registration for the casting contest is free but must be done at Tackle Addict or online on their site. We will have a bounce house, snow cones and Texas Style BBQ. We really want this to be a fun event for the community.
Starting tomorrow, we will run an auction through my facebook with some great guide trips and other prizes. We'll also have some really great raffle prizes up for grabs that we'll be posting on my facebook in the coming weeks.
Most importantly, we are raising money for charity. 100% of money raised through our auction, raffle, and donations will go to support Warriors Weekend Texas and the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Last year we were able to donate $18,000 and we'd sure love to beat that this year.
I hope we see you there. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
