Re: 2005 Hell Divers Spearfishing Rodeo

Shit!!! I didn't know I missed out on an Aimrite gun last year! I thought I only missed out on the trophy. Thats too bad. I almost had one for the spearboard open too, but it didnt end up going to the winner. Anyway I am 18 now so out of the Junior division(unless you feel really bad and wanna make the junior division 18 and under ). Thanks for the heads up anyway,looks like I'm just gonna hafta school the regular division.

Re: 2005 Hell Divers Spearfishing Rodeo

Well, the proud owner of that Aimrite gun is also an active member of the United States Navy. She enlisted over the summer and entered after her 18th BD. Heads up she was a pretty tough diver (she threatened to kick my ass if I outshot her.)

Last year, because we only had three or four juniors entered, we were going to allow 18 and under. I will have to pass that by the club this year, particularly if we have more juniors. I have seen your fish, you should be ashamed of yourself if you kicked ass on a bunch of kids. I'll buy you your first beer when you come up.

That will work And I'm glad it went to someone that deserved it alot more than me in the big scheme of things. I am gonna be up there for Mardi Gras and will be doing some drops on the rigs that weekend. I know the red snaps will be out of season, what can we be looking forward to out there this time of year? As far as the tourney, I am not wanting to woop up on a bunch of kids, I just worry they wont be able to use that aimrite to it's fullest potential I'm really not chapped about last year, in fact I am really grateful that you guys did so much to accomidate me and was extremely happy with how everything turned out. I managed to place in 2 catagories, winning one of them, and got King Spearfisher in my sights this year. Yall better watch out. I'm pumped about the 05 RODEO!

Chris,

Give me a call Tuesday, I will tell you what it takes to win King of the HDR. I am almost a non-competitor at the Rodeo. I dive to put meat in the box and in 2004 I spent three days pointing out fish for the wife to shoot. Check your PM

Re: 2005 Hell Divers Spearfishing Rodeo

Rock,

The new HD site is running. It has some information concerning the HDR but I don't have the rules yet! (We are having rules this year? I hate when I miss a meeting!) I will add to the site all rodeo sponsors by next week. I only had time to add a few so far.

Thanks to John Schmidt for donating a "Slaymatic Atlantic" marker buoy!!

Thanks again to Denny and his efforts to legalize Shark and Tuna. That earned the FRA a spot on the front of the HD site. I put the new law to test the next day landing a 30# YF and loosing what appeared to be a three digit after trying to gaft him at the boat! (S**T) On the HD site there is also a report by Papa Smurf on what went on at the LA meeting (in his words I might ad)!

As for donations, we take anything! But if you were there last year, the more waterproof the better!

later...............

Re: 2005 Hell Divers Spearfishing Rodeo

Hey Everyone. Check out the HD site specifically the sponsor page. If you are a sponsor or plan to sponsor plesae send me an icon so that I can add you the the page. I have some but I'm sure I don't have them all. I was looking at Rock's list and I need some info from some of you. Send info to thegetawayexperience@cox.net.

thanks, (be back after Mardi Gras..............hopefully!)

Re: 2005 Hell Divers Spearfishing Rodeo

I'm looking forward to see all you guys this year, Good Luck.

They finally listened to me this year for the T-Shirt slogan. It's gonna be a good one.

Here's a picture of all the crap I won last year.
