After reviewing the web page, apparently when 111 people look at it, it exceeds its limit. so I deleted some pics. Not sure if this is going to fix it or not though. I guess you get what you pay for and this was free *>:(
As soon as I can get it running again, I will let everyone know. Sorry, thought this was a good option compared to posting up on the sniffer site as they have objections to these. I guess you cant please all of the people all of the time *:(

Update

site is back online ;)

Darren, you are signed up ;)


Wow Freon nice of you to do such a beautiful rod for me to win.

You know I only wrapped it that nice cuz I am going to win it ;D

It was very nice of you to donate two sets of stars for me to win as well ;) ;D

any other donations?
any volunteers for derby master?
any volunteers for supplying my wobbly pops? ;D ;D
doesnt hurt to ask, right ;)
We really do need a derby master so that everyone knows where to mail the money to or at the very least, who to give it to :o
Otherwise, Hoghunter will have to do it ;D
We could use a shirt or cap master as well, just a thought.

I donated the rod and it wont have anyone's name on it, but for just a few dollars, I can put anyone's name on it, the few dollars shouldnt amount to much more than say $500 ;)

I am plannin on putting a decal on it that says 2009 amadorfest winner, so I guess I should just go ahead and put my name on it ;D

Did you want your name on the list Leo?

Alright I would like to reserve the boat launch area to fish all day. That is how the last tourney was won there 3 weeks ago.I would recommend that area be off limits to derby anglers. I am trying to clear my schedule to attend.

Question. Is the prize for the biggest fish, biggest limit or most fish?

freon
02-17-2009, 07:31 AM
CC, the biggest fish is how we roll. In the past, we have just gone off of the weight of the list provided to us by the lodge. The derby master makes up the rules as to who wins what, but traditionally, the winner gets choice of money or rod. Last year, we had about fifty winners I think as we had a lot of donations. Between trophy trout, ac plugs, Ric1ric, GVF and Hoghunter, there were a bunch of prizes, along with some freebies thrown in by the lodge. We as well had north river marine bring a couple of ice chests up as well that was well received, it took us a while, but we did manage to drink all of the wobbly pops, sodas and waters, they rock ;)
We hold the fest there at this time of the year due to the fact that the fish are at their biggest and the lake is fully planted (they stop plants within the next two to six weeks depending on temps). I was informed by Sandy that they would be doing a special plant just for us, guess we all need to tell them to not plant them at the ramp ;)

RF, it will be up to the derbymaster to make that rule, if they so decide ;)

Kent, I will put you two on the board and thanks for volunteering for being the shirt/cap master ;)
Please put me down for two caps and let me know where to send a check. If you need for me to put the list on the derby board I can, might be better served on the fest sign up board. I would talk to SuperDave and SJ as they have both done this before and I am sure would have some great insight ;)

Still looking for a derby master everyone >:(
Dont make me do it, you wont like how the rules favor me :o ;D
First rule would be that only people in a Hewes boat can win ;) ;D
Second rule, only people with custom wrapped rods with stars on them can win ;D ;D
Get the picture ;)
We really need a derby master, and how hard can a job be when all you have to do is to get some gear together, collect some money and then give it all away ;)
Pretty hard to goof that job up ;D

After talking to James it looks like I have been suckered into being the Derby master. Thanks James for offering to buy all my beer :D
I will have James post the dereby rules next week. Also I will be collecting the money before the derby as I am going to be fishing and not looking for people who have not paid. More to come. lets have fun everyone

Hey Daren, could ya sign Maggie and I up for the derby. Looking forward to seeing ya there. That Freon sure is a sweet talker. ;D ;D ;D

Roger, I will put you two on it ;)


That Freon sure is a sweet talker.

Only when I am drinking or when the day ends in Y :-[ ;D

Roger, we still need someone to do the shirts/hats if your interested, you big stud muffin ;D ;D

Not me James, Maggie yelled at me all weekend, because I'm so unorganized and forgetful. What was the question? *:-/

Not me James, Maggie yelled at me all weekend, because I'm so unorganized and forgetful. What was the question?

Roger, as I understand it, Maggie was screaming at you for making Mickey a rod holder instead of picking her up from work, I can see where better prioritization could assist you in the future, but luckily for you, its easy to take hat and shirt orders and then hand them out ;)
Come on Roger, anybody that spends all day making Mickey a rod holder is obviously needing another goal ;) ;D
This is much easier and will make a lot more people happy than one, how often does that happen in your life? ;D

I am officially done with testing the new fest rod and will be putting the final decals on it. the good news is that it caught fish every time out and it looks hot in a rod holder, someone (me) will be very happy when they win this rod. I will try and post up a final pic once I get the decals on.

I still have an open seat on my boat for the Fest. If you want to ride with me and The Rocket, you will need to submit your derby fee to Darren Stoffel before 3/24. Iíve already sent mine in and the rules state that all on board the boat must be in the derby to participate. Does that mean Rocket needs to enter? ;D ;D ;D

Let me know soon.

Rich I believe there have been a couple people who have misunderstood rule #6

#6 states, The entry fee is $5.00 per person and everyone on the boat THAT ARE FISHING must be entered, so if Rocket has a rod and knows how to use it, Sign him up. ;D ;D I've been out fished a few times by less intelligent critters. ;) I'm not saying that Rocket is a less intelligent critter, I'm talking about people.

He could be intelligent, being that he doesn't listen to me much at all. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Fest! :)

freon
03-18-2009, 11:41 AM
the official derby is only on saturday. some of us might have a side derby on friday, but nothing is set up yet. i think we have done that the last couple of years. if we do a derby on friday, it will be done over the vhf. If you are interested in friday and dont have a vhf, you might want to contact either Hoghunter or myself.

Chris, another quote is "the truth hurts" ;D
I was expecting a little competition ;)
You are correct, we will indeed have fun, I have yet to be at a fest that I didnt have a great time at and meet a lot of new people, I am hoping for the same here. amadorfest has never let me down, this is one of my favorites ;)

Hey Crappieman67, Bob told me a secret way to get in early if he's not there to open the gate. He has a automatic gate opener hidden near the gate booth. There's this big old bull in the pasture across the road from the gate both, the opener has been implanted in his testicle sack. All you have to do is sneak up behind the Bull and give em a good firm squeeze. ;) Bob says any one who does this gets in free. [smiley=thumbsup.gif] We'll be listening for ya.
