FROM RON JOHNSON

The hours for fishing were too long, I think it would have been fine for a 1:00 lines out.

The only suggestion I have is that we schedule the tournament on a non racing weekend. I had some racers that wanted to fish, and they couldn’t because it was the last points race of the year and they had to race. I could probably get a few more boats involved if we could look at the Atlanta Dragway schedule in January before scheduling this tournament next year.

Thanks to all who have made this possible in the past 2 years and all who will make it possible in the future. My Dad loved the lake and fishing and the Striper clubs he belonged to. ALS is a horrible disease that has no cure, no treatment and no hope once diagnosed. I hope that we will all be able to continue to raise money for the ALS association so that they can continue to research this disease and hopefully find anything that will help people in the future who are diagnosed with this.

I usually don’t participate in our club tournaments since they start early and are held on the weekend, but this is a special tournament to me. This was the first tournament I participated in since Dons death and the only tournament I fished in without him. To be sure I participated like a tournament angler I spent the night out on the water and slept on my boat. I don’t think the hours were too long at all. Maybe started a little early since it was still dark at 6 : 30. I had bait in the water at 6 : 40 and fished till 1 :30. Only caught 1 fish but I was in the vicinity of about a dozen other boats so I felt like I was in a good area. The check in was a lot of fun to me. Seeing some of Dons family and friends and other club members again was the best part of the tournament. I was fortunate enough to win a very nice rod and reel donated by Oakwood bait and tackle and my wife won a $ 50.00 gift card from Shell oil co. Thank you all to those participated and those who donated some fabulous prizes to this very worthwhile project. And congratulations to Team Chaser for the win with two nice fish.
