“Gone Fishing for Kids” 2 Day Open Tournament – LBJ – 10/23 & 10/24 $10K GUARANTEED 1st Place

Mark your calendar for October 23rd and 24th…this is one you don't want to miss!



River City Grille and Texas Tournament Zone will be hosting the 2010 “Gone Fishing for Kids” charity fishing tournament.  This is a two day open tournament on Lake LBJ with all proceeds going to the following charities:

The Boy's and Girl's Clubs of Highland Lakes in Marble Falls, The Highland Lakes Legacy Fund in Marble Falls and Burnet and Camp Phoenix in Marble Falls.

First place is a GUARANTEED $10,000 on a $150 per team entry!

You guys know Robby, Booker and myself are all about having a good time.  Well, I think we've found the perfect place for that good time and have reserved this deck for a special “Angler Appreciation Night” the Friday night before the tournament!







More details will follow, but we can promise you it only gets better from here…stay tuned!

This is an open tournament benefiting youth charities, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FISH WITH A CHILD.

Rules, registration forms and online registration will be available soon.

Come on out and help us raise some money for the kids while having an absolute blast!

Stay tuned for more details, it gets even better!

Lance,

This is a two day cumulative weight format. I'd suggest booking Friday and Saturday night...there's a big party planned Friday night.

SouthTexas,

This is not a youth tournament although youths are welcome to fish with an adult; it's a two day tournament open to all anglers with the proceeds benefiting youth charities.

Ander,

You can launch from any ramp but check in for both days will be from McNair.  Day 1 weigh-in will be at McNair and the final day weigh-in will be back at River City Grille in Marble Falls.

We're trying to get the rules and entry forms out asap; just need to confirm a few big sponsors...thanks for your patience.

Giving this a good bump.

This T is for a very good cause and if TTZ is one of the hosts then you know it will be a helluva good time.

Mark the dates!

Is it $10 cheaper to mail you a check than to register online? I see there is a link for concert tickets, that is still under construction, any info there?

Lance,

If you mail in your entry it is $150 vs $160 online. There is a processing fee of $4.65 our vendor charges so we just rounded up to $160 and will donate the difference to the charities. Entry forms for mailed entry will be available next week but we still encourage online registration.

With a 100% payout of all entry fees every little bit helps towards our primary goal for this tournament - raising money for the kids.

Music acts are still being locked down and we are working out the final details with various sponsors for products, raffles and giveaways. More information will be released shortly, thanks for your patience.
