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.

    •     I believe you said it was "libertarian" drivel, actually, so you dismissed it out of hand...          
    •   You posted about neither.     But if you would read the article, my commentary and TJ's commentary you would know that's not really what the article is about.     You have to be kidding, right? Just about everyone who has an opinion on politics at all is this sort of person. Do you look at social media at all?
    •     Ok, now getting back to whether Trump will win the War on Drugs, do you think he will take any steps at all to decriminalize drugs, such as reclassifying marijuana, and recognizing state laws and programs designed to move towards the decriminalization of drugs?   Or do you think he will take steps to protect vested interests, such as prisons and the pharmaceutical. industry?   Just going off his rhetoric and his choice for a drug czar, I'm guessing he much prefers the latter, and will end up spending a bunch of taxpayer's money, and actually lose ground by continuing on with the brute force/criminalization approach.        
    • Because at the time, I don't have anything better to do.   I posted about the article, and you wanted to talk about the topic.  I posted about the topic and you want to discuss the article.    Which is it?     I support a particular candidate because their positions, taken as a whole, are preferable to me as compared to the other candidate(s).   In a few years I get to do it over.     I don't think there are really that many ardent "rah rah for my party" type folks out there, in spite of what we see on TV, or the occasional people we meet.     So the article is basically drivel, as I said before, based on a false premise.   
    • Borch I just signed up Ryan, Morgan, and me but I only see my name listed in the summary. Do my kids not show up because they don't have hso usernames?  Or did I not enter it right?     Please let me know how to fix it and I'll do so.  Thanks!
    •   Because I think self reflection is good for all of us from time to time.   If you don't wan't to discuss this article, why do you persist in posting here?           No one is disputing that at all. The premise of the author's article is in regards to the hypocrisy of then justifying everything your chosen candidate or party does blindly while vilifying the other candidates or party. It's the "all in" sports like mentality that is being discussed here.  
    • There is a really excellent book called "The Righteous Mind" that approaches this tribalist mindset from an evolutionary psychology standpoint. The author, Jonathan Haidt, does a remarkable job of unpacking why people persist in truly irrational defense of the indefensible - when it's their team doing the stupid stuff. I highly highly highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in lessening the hyperpartisan idiocy we have today.

      The trouble is that the closed-off mindset that lends itself to reflexive support for Obama/Hillary/Trump/whomever also tends to preclude any serious engagement in self-examination that the book is designed to provoke. Really good read, though.
    •   I get what your saying here but I think what Dave is talking about is the willingness of some to blindly follow, without question, their party or candidate. I saw this first hand during the primary with some of my own relatives, for example. I had a SIL who was a huge Bernie backer. The things she said about Hillary were worse than anything said here. As far as she was concerned, Hillary should be tarred and feathered and ran out on a rail. Then Bernie loses the nomination. She then became Hillary's biggest defender. Everything she said about her during the primary was instantly washed away. Even her own husband called her out. She wasn't simply voting for her because she found Trump worse. That's understandable. She defended or at least tried to deflect the issues with Hillary when just a few months prior, she said things that would make even Cooter or Bill say, "man you're harsh on her."   I don't think this is a new phenomenon. I also don't think it's widespread. Like everything else, access to more and diverse information just makes it possible to hear more about it than before. I think human nature causes people to internalize candidates and/.or elected officials. It's a "if you're critical of my candidate, you're critical of me," kind of thinking.   I don't fault anyone for voting for a candidate that one feels best represents their line of thinking. Or even defending their candidate from detractors. I don't think that is what Dave is talking about here. It's also the flipping of political opinions just because the candidate you voted for or support is supporting certain positions. For example, many conservatives opposed BHO's stimulus, including myself. It didn't work  as promised and we just added more on to the debt. So on the campaign trail, Trump also spoke of a stimulus plan that was even more expensive than BHO's and  those same people not only supported it but are justifying it. In summary, one can vote for a candidate without defending everything that person does        
    •  Come on.   The world, life is a bit more complicated then that.          Quit passing the blame. Your whole thesis is on choice and owning it.   Let me guess, you hate big banking also since they made it easy to refinance and purchase.   It just proves that general society is incapable of making the right decisions as a whole.   Sorry, you go down with the ship.
