Sustained winds of 20-30 with gusts on Chambers is BRUTAL. I can recall a media tournament years ago in similar winds where boats were coming back in with no trolling motor, windshields popped off, and one fella that speared a wave and lost all his rod and reels off the front deck. Good call by the organization to postpone this one.

I hear people criticize when tournaments (esp HS) get cancelled due to weather or unsafe conditions and just shake my head...

It's NEVER what any director wants to do.
It causes a huge problem to reschedule.
Everyone is going to complain and have their "I could have fished" argument.
Sometimes, the weather changes and it turns out to be a beautiful day. Sometimes it does not. We all wonder if the weather service just throws a dart at the board with their forecast...…
Directors do the absolute best they can with the information they have at hand. If someone thinks they can do a better job - they are free to volunteer to help with the existing program or start their own.

Man I hear ya brother. It's one thing to cancel a regular tourney, but when you cancel a HS tourney, every Mom, Dad, Aunt, Uncle, and Cousin wants answers as to Why??? I have been on the decision making end of that and it's never easy. It's not like you can just "Re-Schedule" either when your running the fields we are running. It's always better to err on the side of caution, stick to your guns and deal with the backlash rather than the alternative of someone getting hurt.


Everything on your bass boat is broken......You just don't know it yet.

Agree with ya Geo- if you let the tourney "happen" and some dad decides to launch with faulty equipment near a dam and 3 people get killed then what?!?! I love having high school fishing (and sure wish we did when I was that age!) but heck missing 1 tourney won't harm a single thing for ANY of the 13-18 yr olds involved's lives.

i understand as well. while i appreciate those who volunteer to be boat capt., there are many who need more time behind the wheel before stepping up to do the job and this takes the decision out of their hands which is smart. while i understand the wind, i dont think "rising water" was worthy of being a reason with no rain in the forecast and the lake having been at pool level for the past month. the biggest beef i have is it being postponed by a week, give people time to re-arrange schedules and make plans. it's the end of school and many graduation, prom and uil sports tournaments going on. just my opinion.

It’s not a high school tournament that was postponed. It was a couples tournament. Our high school state championship is next weekend on Texoma.

My bad. I was told it was a couples tournament that was postponed. Apparently there in fact was a high school tournament on RC that was postponed. Not one of ours so I guess I was out of the loop.
