Thanks to all who attended and the cooperation from the teams that made this event successful, and to State Park Officer Youngers, who addressed the group at the pre-tournament briefing and fielded questions from the participants about the boat check procedures and efforts to stop the spread of ANS.  The boat checks on Saturday morning went well and all were on the water by launch time thanks to the extra officers who came down to get us out on time.  When we all cooperate with their efforts and know what is expected of us the process moves smoothly.

Thanks again,
Jeff Jones, TD
