    Oh . I like were your going with this.
    I'll get a cigar shop to sponsor us.
    Have a nice selection of ports and single malts.
    Maybe even get some hooter girls to act as servers.

    Here's a view from the Spey Competition course. There's three divisions to this competition:

    -15'1" Distance Comp: Winner gets their name on the official cape. Who wouldn't want to wear that cape??
    -13'6" "Marlow Rules": Average Caster wins top honor! This division is all about consistancy and doing just enough to get out there fishing! PRIZE: Echo Solo Spey Rod 12'9"-7/8 with an Airflo Compact Skagit. Compliments of Poppy at Red Shed!
    -Unlimited Division: The big guns!

    Something for everyone - and the 13'6" prize is AWESOME! Get on out and give it a try! Casting competitors should be onhand at 9AM to sign in & get a casting spot.
