Oak Lawn High School hosts bass fishing tournament this weekend

I just received this email.  It's about an upcoming High School Bass Tournament.

Getting these young adults out on the water and enjoying fishing is great.  We need to support them.  Take a look at the message received and head out there this weekend to support High School bass fishing.

Hi – I’m Chris Kuchyt, head coach of the Oak Lawn Community High School fishing team.  We are hosting one of the largest fall high school bass tournaments on Saturday, October 22 at the Des Plaines Conservation Area.  We have 40 boats registered from 13 schools from across northern Illinois.  Over 120 high school anglers will be taking part in this event!  It’s going to be great.  If you’re interested, I’d like to invite you to the event.  I’ve been working with Justin over at Rayjus Outdoors to put together goody bags for the kids.  Each student participating will receive a bag with a Mercury Frisbee, sample baits from Dragin’ Baits, Hylabaits, and Bizz Baits, and a few other things.  The Air Force will be there as well hosting a casting competition for the kids and giving an Air Force trophy to the winner.  The IBFN trailer/stage will also be there equipped with live-wells and a digital scale.  The trophies are also set and this should be a great event! 

The rules meeting is set for 6:30am and the start of the tournament will be sometime around 7:15am.  Weigh-in will being around 1:15pm.  More information can be found here: http://www.olchs.org/assets/athletics/2011%20OL%20Bass%20Tournament%20Rules%20Sheet.pdf
