If any of our competitors or spectators have any photos of the angling event or of the Medal Ceremonies please post them to this site or forward them to me at steve.hajdasz@fairfax2015.com or sphajdasz@gmail.com. I'm sure there are lots of photos out there that would like to be seen by all.

Just to let everyone know.....Once the registration closes I will be sending out notifications for the pairings and team assignments. At this time there are still more non boaters than there are boaters and I am looking for volunteer boat captains so the number of non boaters that will be unable to fish will be minimizes. If you are one of our local competitors who knows someone who is willing to help out have them contact me ASAP.

Mark Belew I'm pretty well connected in the local scene. Can you give me some details on what you're looking for and I'll send out word to the locals. 2 years ago

Landing nets are permitted. Not only for the ease of landing fish, but it makes it safer for the fish and causes less harm.

I am currently working on obtaining volunteer boat captains for those extra non boaters who entered the competitions, once registration closes I'll have an idea of how many I need and will try to keep the entrants informed.

I would assume that the costs will be posted when the registration opens. I believe that will be sometime around October 1st.

In the near future I will be covering the license requirements and how to obtain them.

Just a note to those of you who are planning to fish in the WPFG event. I would recommend that you book your accommodations as close as you can to the venue. This will make trailering your boat to the venue easier and for those of you without boats it will be easier to bring your equipment, and to meet up with boaters for practice fishing and getting together.

A 16 Ft deep vee should be okay, I have used a 16ft boat on the Potomac in past years. I would not go any smaller as that in my opinion would be unsafe. The Ranger would be a great upgrade..... you would love it.... especially on the Potomac. If you get a chance take a look on Google Earth and see what the Potomac River looks like in the area of Pohick Bay.

Just as a point of reference, I fish the Potomac a lot and I run a 20 foot Bass Cat Cougar bass boat with a 250 hp motor.

I would recommend nothing smaller than a 16 foot boat with a 50 hp motor. And that would be pushing the envelope. The Potomac River is a large body of water, that can get rough during windy or inclement weather. What size and type of boat are you planning to bring?

Every effort will be made to pair up everyone that attends and wants to participate. I would venture to say that the earlier you register the better your chances are to be paired with a boater. Also if we have a few non boaters more than boaters, I hope to have a few people who will volunteer to be boat operators.
