Yes let's cross our fingers that the forecast for Saturday holds and we can show our Veterans just how awesome our fishery is!

 

It is not holding and has gone from OK to really bad. Might start thinking about a 10 am start time????

Yes we are working on options in case Saturday is unsafe.  We will have the BBQ and show the Veterans a good time on Saturday no matter what, but Captains may also want to keep their Sunday open if possible...

My Sunday is open. I would rather be able to take someone and make it enjoyable for them vs. unpleasant.

I have to drive my boat from Rochester port to Hughes marine. Either way I have to do it tomorrow. Last year I drove that trip in 4 to 6 footers. Don't feel like doing that again. Sunday is fine with me if that's all we got. Hope all can still make it. I would postpone everything if we can. Sunday is looking like a beautiful day.

We're good for Sunday. Will any of the vets be able to join us if it's moved to Sunday?

I've contacted my vet, he's good. But I'M pretty sure we will lose a few. Including Captains. Either way I'm sure it will be a great turn out.

I'm running mine to Hughes tomorrow as well. I'm coming from Fair Haven. 25 miles in 5-6s doesn't sound like fun. Tomorrow looks decent

Thank you everyone for your support. In full transparency, here is what's going on...

The breakfast sandwiches, donuts, coffee, BBQ, and a majority of the Veterans and other arrangements will be here on Saturday... that is something that cannot be changed at this point. That being said, here is the plan...

Tomorrow (Thursday) by 5pm, we will announce if BFF is being moved to Saturday. If the Saturday forecast doesn't improve tomorrow, I will be working with the Project Healing Waters team to see what arrangements can be made for our Veterans to stay through Sunday.

Saturday... we will still have registration by 6am. If it is fishable, great! If not, but the forecast shows it fishable by 10am, we will delay until 10 and extend fishing to 2pm. If it is unfishable and forecast shows it not improving until Sunday, we will postpone the fishing part of the tourney (including BFF) to Sunday. We will still have breakfast, as well as the BBQ on Saturday. We are working with the local bowling alley as well to rent it out for an activity for our Veterans with their Captains. If folks have bocce or cornhole sets, it may be a good idea to bring them to the BBQ as well.

If the fishing tourney and BFF are moved to Sunday, the timelines will remain the same (register by 6am). We will pair up whatever Veterans are able to stay, with whatever Captains are able to fish. If there are more boats than Veterans, no problem, some teams just won't have a Veteran, but will still be eligible for all Captain prizes. We will have weigh in and then a quick prize ceremony.

I apologize for any inconvenience this causes folks, but in the end, I know we will show our Veterans a great time!
