*Blast-off The order in which you pay is the order in which you we be sent off. If that person is not ready to go ( use a thumbs down sign) then the next will go.
*Boat Inspection NO live bait. AT anytime the coordinator can inspect your boat. Livewell must be in working order.
*Tournament Ethics**** Everyone is to exercise good sportsmanship and judgement towards others. Things like crowding,cutting off,etc,etc are not what we need to do to make this event successful and enjoyable. Everything that has merit can be discussed we the event coordinator at anytime. Safety of everyone and most important is to make this event fun. So when you think your ethics are good enough maybe stop and think on making them great instead.
*Boat launch I would ask that all participants of the limestone bass event please be helpfull to the public . They have a purpose there as well as we do. Give them the right of way and help them if you can. Positive feedback make us a better event.
*Pre- Tournament fishing Allowed up to 3 days prior to events of the limestone bass schedule. If seen on the lake within these 3 days.... you will not be able to participate in that schedule event. The event coordintor is allowed on the lakes at anytime but only to look and not to fish.
