I'm there! And I'm pretty sure Mark is gonna make it too. We were planning on camping, but I think we're not now. I know I'm not.

William, your boat will be fine. Mine's 14' long and I'm sure it'll be okay.

William, Yep Steve is right. There are a lot of great coves right around the launch area. I took my 14 foot with a 8hp motor to Rend a few years back and Snuffy and I got around fine. Granted we did not try to cross or head to the north end. And we placed 7th in the tournament. Oh did I mention that there were only 7 teams. We we were there and it was our first tournament.

I'll be there Saturday AMand Sunday.

I will be setting up a Blue Ridge Backwoods Booth at the Championship selling Bowfishing Supplies.

So if you bowfishers need anything for the shoot hopefully I'll have it for you... if you need something special for Bowfishing or Archery in General before the shoot just call me at Blue Ridge Backwoods #(217)762-3123 ask for Debbie and I'll bring it to the shoot Saturday AM.
Good Luck All

Try to make it William! Shelbyville is big but you don't have to go far from the launch to find fish. I know of several big gar last year taken sraight out from the ramp.
