Sounds like everyone had a good time. I really wish I could have done this tourny but the only boat me and my friends had to use was a 13ft whaler and that doesn't cut it.

Re: Results!

Great job on a well-run tournament! My wife and I had an excellent time and look forward to doing it again. It was great to meet and spend some time with Johny's family. Now we know why he was so laid back and down to earth.

It gave us goosebumps as we watched the excitement among the junior division. What an excellent cause to get kids involved in such a wonderful sport. Johny would be proud!
