This may be a little long winded, but it needs to be done for housekeeping. I made a mistake Saturday that needs to be corrected. The protest that was made is going to be taken back. It clearly states in the rules that any protest must be made prior to the scales opening. Now i know this will upset some of you, but i have to follow the rules as written. Also before anyone questions my integrity, there also is nothing in the rules that states that what was done was a violation. I gave the party involved a warning while i was on the water and was going to leave it at that. I am not going to run around like a dictator and disqualifying people for reasons that for the first offense i would give a warning for. i should have never accepted the protest, but i did to my own detriment. I am not taking anyone's money back, i am paying the winners purse to them out of my own pocket. I made the mistake and i am correcting it. I gave the warning and would do the same to anyone and if there are further occurrances, i will handle them as the situation dictates. Please understand, this is supposed to be fun. We are fishing because we love to fish. This is not the Elite Series. i will treat everyone with the same fairness and follow the rules as written and agreed upon at the meeting. I did not do that Saturday and for that i apologize. I can promise you it will not happen again. Now for the last part of this. If you are upset, i am sorry. If you are going to cause more drama because of this, please feel free to keep that at home. This incident is over. If for any reason you want to discuss it with me, get in touch and we can talk. I am not going to allow this to define what the rest of this year will be like, so everyone is fairly warned that i am not going to put up with any carrying on over this.
Now for what we are here for. Saturday was a good day for most and a lot of fish were caught in the monsoon weather. Thanks to all of you for braving the elements, i appreciate all of you.
