So I wanted to get a post up here with an update about the Smackdown.

We have had a very small number of teams sign up so far. We had a few more but a couple of teams called and said they couldn't do it and needed money refunded before the deadline. We have been trying to decide what to do for a little while now, and here is what we have decided.

We are going to refund all of the teams that remain signed up currently for the Tournament.

But!!!

We are going to have the tournament with NO ENTRY FEE REQUIRED!!!!!

The sponsors will cover the payouts. It will be 100% payout and we will have to depend on many of the guys getting in the side pots to provide the really big payout! So here is how it is going to go down.

Same Format as stated in the rules.

Payout will be as follows.

$1500 First Place
$1000 Second Place
$500 Third Place


Big Fish Pot $100


Side Jackpots of $250, $500 and $1000 and they will be paid out 100%!


We will not be accepting Credit Cards or Checks for the Side Pots, so Bring your money to the event and we will sign up for the Jackpots at the Event.

There will be no tent, there will likely be some Burgers and Dogs Afterwards. Bring your own drinks. We have decided to let this be more of a friendly get together of Old Friends at the end of the season for some serious bragging rights and a lot of fun rather than getting guys to pay in a bunch of money.

We are basically allocating our Tent and Food Budget to the payout to allow for the payouts without entry fees.

So since a 100% payout was not good enough for so many guys, How about Free!!!

Small Boats and big boats. If you are planning on fishing that weekend anyway, you might as well enter the tournament, you may just win some money.

We want it to be big and have a ton of boats that enter so post in this thread if you are interested so we can begin to plan a little better.

If you have never fished in a tournament but want to try one out, this is your chance, you've got nothing to lose!

Bo,

You are the saint of Northwest tuna fishing.

Another class move on your part. You make each fishing event special with your goodwill.

Thanks,
Beee

Sorry Guys. We looked at the possibility of a Westport Change, but our Coast Guard Application was for Ilwaco and has long ago been submitted. So we are committed to Ilwaco at this point.

But it is a short drive in the water or on the trailer down from Westport. We do need the Washington Brotherhood to represent. I much prefer Westport myself for a variety of reasons, but this is the Smackdown and a little North vs. South action allows for a little more Smackability. Ilwaco is more central to allow the Oregon and Washington guys equal opportunity.


So please still sign up and get ready!

Keep in mind that although you do not have to pay to enter, you do need to register, so visit www.TunaSmackdown.com and send in the registration.
