Default passing on the tradition

Well after 2 weeks no one has posted the results of the 2011 'Passing on the Traditions' tournament august 6. After a slow start from pouring rain it was decided to extend the hours from 8am to 2:30pm. there were 11 teams and 3 different age groups. awards were given for heavest 2 fish, heavest fish and longest gar. Do not remember the name of the young man who won the longest gar. I can tell you it was some terriable conditions. My grand son Tyler Geers aka Mr. Extreme and I headed up to caryle dam. I figured if you can only weigh in 2 fish they might as well be big heads. We were blessed to boat 3 big heads inspite of the near white cap waves spotty sun and clouds. Was the worst conditions I have ever tried to bow fish in. Most of the teams headed to the talewaters below the Rend lake spillway. The conditions must have been worse there as only a few gar were shot and one lonely buffalo. So long story my grandson Tyler won overall heavest fish and heavest fish at 15# 15 oz. For this he won a very pretty Alpine bow. Of which his dad took possession of. Accordiing to Ryan this will be the last year of the tournament.

sorry johnny b i didnt have the info about it and been trying to get the last couple things done for the Carp Archers Classic on the 17th of sept.

It was a pretty miserable day out there, and Ryan said it was gonna be the last time for that tourney but the BASI will have a youth tourney next year and i am sure Ryan and the IB will be teaming up with us to hold another one.

Congrats to you and your grandson for traveling 12 hours to win the tourney, nice to meet you also.
