Default Mazonia Charity/Fundraiser tourney

After hearing about a fellow local angler's wife fighting breast cancer I talked with him about it and decided to host a tournament to raise money to help with medical bills. I don't care what kind of insurance you have, the costs are out of hand. Here is a link to the event
https://www.facebook.com/events/922119447885707/

July 10th 2016,
Registration from 5:15-5:50am
Fish from 6:15 a.m. to 12:15pm (It's July and it may be hot)
Weigh in starts at 12:30 on the dot
Here is the gist of how I'm doing this.
Permit says 30 boats, entry will be $50 per boat (limit of 2 anglers per boat) and 100% of entries will be donated to the Planeta family. I will purchase trophies for top 3 teams and big bass. I have also reached out companies in the industry that I deal with and will be receiving merchandise donations from them to give away.
This is not about winning money, it's about helping a family during a tough time. I've had a couple people contact me already that can't fish this day but want to donate their entry fee. If that's something you want to do, let me know.

Any questions, let me know!

What are the boat/motor regs on the lake(s) Are they electric only? Idle only? or HP limited?

There is nothing else there on this weekend, also if you notice I have set weigh in for 12:30 for these 1 off tourneys. This is for good reasons, #1 being fish stress that time of year and #2 it relieves a lot of fishing pressure having weigh in a few hours earlier than normal tourneys.

All trophies have been ordered for this. I got pretty creative with some including a "special one" I ordered for a category I'll announce that day

This is for a good cause guys. I would hope that if the tables were turned someone would do the same for me and mine.
