The first sixteen years of my life that I can remember my dad was speeding ever time I was in the car with him- usually drunk.
I've driven 30+ years without a speeding ticket and don't drink and drive.
I have relatives that I admired and respected as a child take drugs, deal drugs, get convicted on drug charges.
You guessed it- none of that for me.
Kids turn out how kids are going to turn out regardless of an eight hour experience with a volunteer captain.
I wasn't there to agree/disagree with your statement of a boat running on pad between you and a bank 30 feet away, but can tell you there are better (i.e. more effective) ways to handle it then griping about it on this forum. Did you take down TX numbers or call a game warden on the offenses that you mentioned that are enforcible? Did you do any research and find out what tourney it was and contact the TD with the offenders TX numbers so they could talk to the captain? Maybe you can contact the TD and volunteer your services as an experienced FLW angler to run a pre tournament captains meeting to educate some of those volunteers who may not know any better. Nothing personal, I assure you, and I'm sure there were infractions there, but there have been BASS & FLW fellas at all levels commit some,if not all, of those same things in the past. Same with every mid level, low level, working man, & club tourneys I've been in, seen, heard and read about. The high school tourneys are mostly huge #s. You put a bunch of boats on the water on a Saturday and someone is going to get butthurt- see Sealy threads in search engine. If you want to make a difference, try my suggestions. Or brainstorm and come up with your own.
