I have no idea who the Wizard is, but they fit right in – they are my new favorite to win this whole thing for no other reason than they know how to talk trash. I know there is a Wizard on the Deadliest Catch, so maybe word has spread further than expected and we will have a 120 foot crab boat trawling Bearses – which would be sweet.
We heard back from the folks at Charlie Moore and they are sending a prize package, so big thanks go out to them, and On the Water, both responded immediately when asked to contribute and stepped up. Sounds like Sunrise Bait & Tackle, the site of the weigh in, has also stepped up to donate a prize package, so it looks good. Also, the 400 Club is going to be throwing a great party, so we will be taking some of the winnings and putting it towards the fee there. We have lost more than a few hundred bucks the last few years, and this year are just trying to break even so we can keep growing this. Tshirts were more this year, and food will be more at the banquet, so we will be keeping some of the cash to pay for all of those expenses, and the winners will get the majority of the cash, and the prize packages we are accumulating, so this will still be a big prize for the winner. This has never been about making money, and never will be, so don’t worry about us trying to make a buck, we just want to keep this baby rolling. If anyone does have a problem, just punch my brother. Or punch him anyway.
Keep the entries coming and let us know if anyone has had any luck out on Monomoy yet – sounds like it is a bit early, but should be any day. The Goose is gearing up and ready to roll, and I think most fans of the sport would agree it is time for the Goose to take the prize, but the crab boat Wizard could be a real challenge, especially if they fish like they talk trash. I love it.
