Title: 2014 Marquette Bay Fall Classic
Post by: indifisher on July 24, 2014, 09:01:59 AM
This year’s Marquette Bay Fall Classic will be held on Saturday, August 23rd. We are pleased to announce a partnership with The Marquette West Rotary group. This year’s tournament headquarters will be in Mattson Lower Harbor Park in conjunction with the activities of Harbor Fest. There will be bounce houses available for children the day of the event, as well as live music and other events. Food and beverages will be available for purchase from local vendors the day of the event and Friday, August 22nd. For a full list and schedule of activities please visit http://marquettewestrotary.org/harbor-fest/

We are working on purchasing “advanced” tokens for beverages from Marquette West Rotary; further details will be posted here as well as contact information for purchasing. This is something available only to tournament participants and family members and is a courtesy being extended to SSFA by the Rotary group. Please remember although there is no admission required for entry to Harbor Fest there is to be no “carrying on” of alcoholic beverages. Wrist bands will need to be obtained from either a SSFA tournament committee member or a member of Rotary if you wish to purchase alcoholic beverages. Rotary is asking for a $1 donation for each wrist band.

SSFA will have a tent set up inside the grounds. Weighing of live fish will take place on the “Wall” next to the SSFA tent. Maps and directions for weighing of live fish the day of the tournament will be made available at the team meeting on Friday, August 22. Catch and keep coolers will also be collected on the wall that afternoon. Please remember to leave a member of your crew with your cooler as well as your team number. Anyone not fishing is welcome to stop by tournament headquarters throughout the day.

The tournament committee is also looking for volunteers; extra help is needed at the beginning and end of the tournament. Helping out during these times DOES NOT mean you cant fish!!! Please contact a tournament committee member if you are interested in volunteering.

The “Team Meeting”, formerly the captains meeting, will be on Friday, August 22nd at the Marquette Elks lodge located at 127 N. Front St downtown Marquette. The Elks is just south of the Land Mark Inn and on the West side of Front St. Parking is available on street as well as the parking lot West of the building.

For further details please contact a tournament committee member.
