Float tube event changes

Originally we were going to have a 2-man team float tubing session where each team represents one T&C bait pattern. This event has been canceled. I have tried to reschedule this event a couple times, and inclimate weather, or not enough people being able to show up on the new date has made it hard to get it going, so here is what is going to happen now.

I have 3 new patterns that are not on my color chart. You get to choose which one of the 3 patterns you want to represent, and use it for the entire 3 hour session. I am looking for 3 anglers to represent each pattern. If any pattern already has 3 anglers representing it, only the remaining patterns will be available. If 2 patterns have all three anglers, only the 3rd will remain. If we get all 9 anglers, and there is still time to take in more I will start a stand by list. I will only accept 1 angler per pattern on the list to help keep things even. For example, say we have all 9 spots taken and John D. wants to participate, he chooses a pattern and gets put on the list. At that point, only 2 spots would be available for the other 2 patterns. If a second person is added to the list, then whoever wants to join would only be able to represent the remaining pattern. Once the three patterns have an extra angler they would be included in the event. This would just repeat itself again if more people are interested in participating. I am not expecting a huge turnout, but you never know so I am going to put a cap on this one at 5 anglers per pattern.

The cost to enter this event is $3, which basically covers the 6-pack of baits, and is due when signing up. Like orders, payment is to be made via paypal, or in person if you want to come and track me down wherever I am at. Your name will not appear on the entry list unless you have paid. I will not profit from the $3 entry, I usually sell half a dozen baits for $4... I just want it to be a fun outing while everyone gets to try the new patterns at a bargain price. Nothing is free :/
If you sign up and later find out that you wont be able to make it, I will refund your money.

Photos of the fish that are caught are required to qualify for prizes. Prizes will be given out for the biggest bass, and biggest halibut. The team/pattern that catches the most fish will recieve a voucher for 20% off their next T&C order, and the winning pattern will also be the next one added to the color chart.

The date for this event is Saturday, May 5th from 8am-11am at Spanish Landing(sandy launch area). Sign ups will start on April 14th and remain open until the first 9 spots are filled. Once they are filled, the main list would be closed and the next guy would be put on the stand by list. Once there is 3 more anglers to represent the 3 patterns on the list you will be notified, then you can send payment for entry and be added to the main list. This would be repeated one more time if necessary to hit the 5 angler cap.

I will post pictures of the contest patterns sometime next week so you can start the decision process before the sign ups are open. For right now, the pattern names are:
*Sea Breeze
*Electric Deen

Sign ups are to be made either through email/paypal or in person/cash. Im a hard person to follow, so email/paypal is best unless you dont mind driving ;)
I will also have a more detailed version of the directions, rules, and boundaries sometime next week.
I am crossing fingers that we will have great weather this time....

As always, if you have any questions, email me at tclures@hotmail.com.
