So what does everyone think? I say we give it a go! George, be prepared to tweak the tourney. That's just the nature of these things. And perhaps just a morning OR afternoon outing. The whole day might be tough for a lot of married guys. Plus, it's still only March, could be cold doing an all day thing.

I'm interested but it the same date as the Rolling Meadows Show you may lose alot of guys that are going to the swap meet. You may have a better chance on a good turnout if you switch to Sunday the 11Th. just a thought.

Seems like a good idea. The two things that might turn me off are the weight/scale siuation and the spot choosing method. Not everyone has a digital scale, and my experience with non-digital scales is that they can vary by a large amount. Lengths might be a better way to go if you can't use one scale for the whole group. Second, I think you should not limit it to one spot the whole time, or assigned spots. You might consider picking some general boundaries in the park that the group would stay within.
Just suggestions. Hopefully the weather will be starting to improve alittle by the date!
