We are pleased to announce the final details of the Premier Angler Qwest Owners Tournament!
REGISTRATION:Final registration is at 7 AM on July 22nd. The tournament will be held out of Linwood Beach Marina located at 135 S. Linwood Beach Road, Linwood, MI 48634. Registration is closed.
LAUNCH/CAPTAINS’ MEETING:The mandatory captains’ meeting will be held onsite at the pavilion (near marina restrooms). Many of the participants are already floating in the water at Linwood. For those launching the day of, start lining up 6:00 AM – 6:50 AM down the shop lot road at Linwood. We will have staff to help direct parking. The captains’ meeting will begin at 7:00 AM and it will be short and sweet. The list of rules is below, please share with your team. The purpose of the captains’ meeting is to sign in with your team’s name and collect your number. You will also be given a paper at the meeting with rules should you have questions on the water. The tournament will be a shotgun start outside Linwood Beach Marina’s basin.
No need to rush! We will all be starting at the same time. After launching make your way out of the channel/marina basin. Look for the white 2022 Pro Troll directly outside of the channel (Brad Dupuie’s AQ). Gather with all your fellow Angler Qwest Owners at a safe distance facing East. We will then launch a drone for a group shoot capturing the very first Angler Qwest Owners Tournament. Shortly thereafter, you will hear a blow horn signifying the shotgun start. Please be respectful and safe.
CHECK-IN: After fishing hours, boats must check in on the water at the white 2022 Pro Troll at the end of the channel leading into the basin of the Linwood Marina (Start of the no wake zone) before 12:30. Weigh-in will start at 1:00 PM and continue until all qualified teams’ bags have been weighed. Awards ceremony will occur after the last weigh-in with exception of the photo contest. In case of a small craft advisory be issued for July 23rd, the tournament will be rescheduled for July 24th. We will send an email to all team captains and update this information accordingly should any changes occur.
