10th Annual Muzzy Classic and Alabama State Championship
Cartersville, Georgia - The dogwoods are blooming and the sweet smell of honeysuckle is in the air. You know what that means. Spring has arrived and so has the time for the 10th Annual Muzzy Classic and Alabama State Championship. Mark your calendar so you don't miss your chance to join other bowfishermen from across the country as they gather for some exciting bow-fishing action and a little friendly competition.
The event, which is sanctioned through the Bowfishing Association of America, will be held April 25-26, 2009 at the William W. Gross Park on Lake Guntersville in Scottsboro, Alabama, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
Set up as a big-20 format, the tournament will award $3,500 to the 1st place team with the heaviest 20 fish. Remaining cash prizes will depend on the number of entries for the event. The teams with the heaviest carp, longest gar, heaviest grass carp and heaviest buffalo will win new bows as well.
The remaining placing teams will get to choose prizes from a phenomenal selection of gear and accessories that are donated by the tournament's many gracious sponsors. Numerous raffle prizes are given out during the awards ceremony as well.
Pre-registration is encouraged, as boats leave in the order that they register. Registration will be held at the tournament site between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. with a mandatory meeting at the launch site for all teams at 6:30 p.m. The registration fee is $150 per team.
