More detail on the Wounded Warrior tournament

In memory of Iraq Veteran, James Gosnell Catch and Release Bass Tournament
Entry Fee: $50.00 per team. 50% pay out to teams 50% donated to the 
Wounded Warriors Foundation
Optional Big Bass Pot Fee: $20 with 100% pay out
Cash only morning of tournament – Sept 29th @ 6:15 AM 

Pro Hardware, Bass Pro Shops, Marathon Gas and Pacemaker are donating ice cream & raffled items after 1pm weigh-in for all Candlewick resident’s
The intent of this year’s tournament is to recruit Candlewick resident fishermen with boats to participate in next year’s event where they would partner with a Wounded Warrior during the fish tournament.
Wounded Warrior fishing tournaments are popular in other states, and we would like to show our support and appreciation for the veterans as well. If you are an inexperienced bass fisherman with a boat, and want to participate, we will show you some techniques and locations to catch fish. You need a working live well or a cooler with a battery operated pump. This is a great opportunity to give back and have fun at the same time.
The same rules apply for this tournament as the annual Candlewick bass tournament. Residents and guest of Candlewick are encouraged to come down to the weigh-in behind the Rec center. We will have a raffle of gift certificates from above sponsors and a ice cream social for the public after the 1pm weigh in. Donations would be appreciated for the Wounded Warriors Organization.
A Wounded Warrior representative will be here to speak and collect funds to be donated. Any questions please contact Chuck Hart at bassmaster1211@gmail.com or 815-520-1796 <’)))><
Effective this year non-resident boats are not allowed on Candlewick
