Thanks for posting AirFob.

Also, If everyone can do us a favor when you check in and do not tie up to the floating dock.

There is only room for a few boats there, and we need to keep it clear for other to come check in.

Thanks,

EA

Are all the ABF tourneys "shotgun" starts, or are the ones on Travis slotted. After my first ABF tourney on Lake Austin I can see why Austin Parks Police are crabby with some of the bass boaters... that was a wild start with 30 boats balls out in all directions... I was kinda glad my OMC was being cranky and was late out of the gate. I might piss some off, but might I suggest a slotted start when there are more than 20 boats for safety. Whether it's first come, first serve or draw a poker chip to make it fair to late arrivers, just something to think about. I may be a rookie in the tourney world, but as a life long boater/fisherman and paramedic I have seen bad stuff and I'd hate for a crazy start, poor timing or bad judgment to ruin what ABF has going. Just a thought.

Chris, that is a very good point and you are absolutely correct, safety should always be a priority.

We usually try and stagger boats on Austin depending on the field, Wed evening was an oversight on our part and for that I apologize.

Travis is a shotgun start as Mansfield provides a lot more room for everyone to take off simultaneously.

Thanks for the input!

P-money, heard about your gainer! ;D Sorry I missed it.

Weather is looking questionable, but the forecasters have no idea what is going to happen on Wednesday IMO.

We will see !

Looking forward to seeing everyone !

Yep, I think the weather is going to be fine.

Please remember to help us out with the traffic around the floating dock.

Looking forward to seeing everyone this evening.
