?   Prior to blast off, we'll observe the lake conditions.  If it's questionable, we will send out a scout to see if it's safe.  If unsafe, the day will be cancelled.
?   Once the tournament is in progress it is the Captains responsibility to ensure safety of all crew/team mates and return to port safely if weather turns for the worst, weigh-in will still occur @ 1:15pm

All tournament organizers are absolved from all liability or responsibility to the participant or any damage, loss, or injury suffered during the entire course of the tournament including prizes and lunch provided.

Looking forward to a great day on the water!
