2005 Owners Tournament moves to Pickwick!

Posted: 1/19/2005

The 2005 Triton Owners Tournament will be held at Pickwick, Wilson & Wheeler Lakes in Florence, Ala., on June 23-25, 2005. Forms are now oline in the Triton Owners Tournament section of this web site!

The tournament field will be split up into two days. The first half of the competitors will compete on Pickwick Lake only on Thursday June 23. The second half of the competitors will compete on Pickwick Lake on Friday June 24. The top 50% from both days’ competition will qualify to fish on Saturday June 25 and may fish Pickwick Lake, or lock through to Wilson Lake and Wheeler Lake.

Mandatory tournament check-in and registration will be held at the Florence/Lauderdale Coliseum off of Veterans Drive Wednesday June 22nd from 1:30pm - 3:00pm. A dinner will be held that same day starting at 5:00pm and ending at 7:00pm at the Shoals Conference Center off of South Cox Creek Parkway with mandatory rules meeting to follow.

At least one member from each team must attend the registration, check-in and meeting.

Even if you don’t qualify, you won’t want to miss Saturday’s final weigh-in, as we’ll have the drawing for a fully rigged Triton Tr21X, the ever-popular “ladies dash for cash”, several children’s bicycles to giveaway, burgers, soft drinks, and much more.
