Warrior Boats Lake Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic Sept. 6-7

1 post in this topic

Glenwood, MN---75 two-man teams will take to the water this Saturday-Sunday (Sept. 6-7) at Lake Minnewaska, for the 2008 Warrior Boats Lake Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic. Who will win this year's Fall Walleye Classic is anyone's guess, but one team will go home on Sunday with the $6,000 guaranteed first place payout. For 11 of the 75 teams in this year's tournament, the first place payout could climb to as high as $13,500 and for 2 of those 11 teams, as high as $21,000 (with an additional $15,000 in Warrior Boats manufacturer / dealer contingency cash on the line).

"It's going to be really interesting to see how this year's tournament unfolds," said Fall Walleye Classic tournament director, Corey Bohn. "The field is stacked with a lot of good teams and it's going to be extremely competitive."

Kenny Neumann from Glenwood, MN, and Jack Greengo, from Alexandria, MN, (Team Depot Express) return as the defending 2007 champions, and according to Bohn, are considered to be a real threat to repeat in 2008. "In the past four years Kenny and Jack have finished fourth, second and first, so they're definitely a team that you would expect to be in the thick of things heading into Day 2," said Bohn. "When you look at the roster of teams, there are numerous teams who have won various titles throughout the region and in the Dakota's, so it's going to be extremely competitive."

"With three of the four past champions and 13 of the top 15 teams from last year in this year's field, it makes for a strong contingency of teams," Bohn continued. "Throw in the two-time MWT champions in Darrin Herd and Bryan Winterfeldt and a 2008 FLW Tour championship qualifier in Tony Renner, and it's about as competitive as it gets."

Tony and Charlie Renner (4th overall in 2007) return as the two-time defending Father/Son Division winners, as do last year's Husband/Wife Division winners, Jim and Dodi Huston (9th overall in 2007).

As stated by Bohn, 11 of the teams in this year's Fall Walleye Classic are eligible to win an additional $7,500 ($13,500 total) in manufacturer contingency cash as the original owners of a 2007 or newer Warrior Boat, and two of those 11 teams are eligible for another $7,500 in Warrior dealer contingency cash ($21,000 total) since the boat was purchased at Minnewaska Marine in Starbuck, MN (official contingency cash dealer) for the tournament.

Teams will begin fishing at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, with the weigh-ins to begin at 3:30 p.m. at the Glenwood City Beach. The public is encouraged to attend the weigh-ins. As recently announced to the teams, the Fall Walleye Classic will be expanded in 2009 to include a Spring Walleye Classic on June 6-7 on the Alexandria, MN Chain of lakes. The 2009 Lake Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic will be held on Sept. 12-13, 2009. Entry fee for each tournament is $350.

    • Well, yes and no.  When the distillery opened they hired Steve Nally of Makers Mark fame and all of the ingredients come from the local area.  The facility is cool, the bottle and label are cool... it had everything going for it.  But for some reason the partners decided on releasing it earlier than planned, and about this time Nally (who the story claims did not agree with this decision) parted ways with them.  Because of promotion there was a lot of interest and advanced sales and some dealers were limited to a case or two.  But it really bombed hard, and some batches (the bottles show batch numbers) were way worse than others. It didn't turn out like they planned it would and after a while most of the sales were to tourists. On the bright side, after a few years WW admitted they had a problem and began blending batches (and likely made other changes as well), and even had representatives travel the state giving free samples of the "new" WW.  It has improved slightly, but many folks still have the bad taste in their mouth.  A dealer I know told me the liquor commission in Cheyenne (all sales go through them) has something like 500 cases in the warehouse and it's a slow mover.      I actually ordered a case so I could give it out to customers, as luck would have it the bar I ordered through only got 2 cases on that first order, so all of the pre-order people just got a couple of bottles, and they kept a few back for stocking the bar.  For a couple of days patrons were sampling it at the bar and it began to get the thumbs down. I actually cancelled my order for the remaining case.  I did make it halfway through one bottle, but wound up tossing the rest.  I kept the unopened one just because it might be worth something in 20 or 30 years.   Yep nice color alright. The flavor is slightly sweet with a hint of oak, vanilla and kerosene, and it has a burn.  The first glass is sort of deceiving and after the second the flavor becomes unpleasant.  Most believe it's just too young and needed the full aging. 
    • And Yet, 8 years later!
    • Come on Duff, you gotta know it was just picking one liar over the other. The difference being that there is a small chance his lies were not generated by the machine.  In the end it doesn't matter what he says but what he can get others to do.    I gave Barry a chance to do the job and I extend the same to Donald. My guess though is that what he will bring will not be what his voters are looking for but at times we need to go through that to get to where we want to be.   In the meantime maybe tanning booths will make a comeback
    • I am more baffled by the people who think the far right and far left are somehow different and not capable of ignorant acts. Like somehow or somewhere the extremists of your party are somehow better than the extremists of the other, hopefully some people are having their eyes opened.

      Even better there are those out there that think if only the left/right could take over and make things they way they are "suppose" to be would suddenly fix everything. Like alienating half the country is going to be good for America. The further the country gets torn in half the more it looks like there is only one place to to go and that is back to the middle where people work together. Of course that would put a lot of the media out of work but it is more clear than ever they are more of a hazzard than anything.
    • If I remember correctly Ted Cruz did call him a pathological liar during the primaries.
    • How anybody can believe any word that comes out of that pumpkin pie hole is beyond me.   Y'all got duped by a compulsive liar. At least he has that part of being a politician down pat, but for it to work ya need to slip some truth in there now and again.
    • And yet?   Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump Jan 21 A fantastic day and evening in Washington D.C.Thank you to @FoxNews and so many other news outlets for the GREAT reviews of the speech!
    • I find it amusing to watch Fox slowly come to grips with the realization that a war against the media impacts them too.   They are completely gobsmacked over the crowd size press conference. As we all should be. How embarrassing.
