Hawg Hunters Bass Club, Tournament #7

Chickahominy River, River Front Park, VA
Hey all, this is our first year as a club, our seventh tournament will be held on the Chickahominy River out of River Front Boat Launch on July 19th. 

Open Team tournament, $60 entry fee. Must be a member to gain aoy points. Launch will be a 7am or first light so please show up early to register and sign waivers (first time teams).

I have been a member of quite a few clubs in the past and as we all know its very aggravating fishing with a group that has little to no organization. Our goal is to have a good time fishing well organized team based tournaments while keeping it fairly inexpensive.

Its $80 a boat to join the club (40 per person) but you are able to fish solo if you would like. The membership fee is broken down on the website. The tournaments are $60 per boat which is also broken down on the website under tournament rules. For members we will be paying out for a "hawg of the year", stringer of the year, and Angler/team of the year, which is included in the membership fee.

We will be fishing, chesdin, the chick, appomattox, James, Gaston and Kerr. As this is our first year, all tournaments are open to anyone so please come and fish one and see how you like it. Only club members will be able to gain Angler/team of the year points.

We will also be hosting a youth tournament and Big bass tournament both on Chesdin.

Please check out the website: http://www.hawghuntersbassclub.org/
