    Event Description:
    GENERAL INFORMATION - Gunnison Rotary Club Blue Mesa Lake Fishing Tournament
    • Check in at the Tournament Headquarters trailer located on the boat ramp at Elk Creek Marina on Friday May 4 from noon to 6:00 p.m. to receive your flight confirmation, a tournament hat, and a lath with your team number on it to identify you at the dock as a participant when your boat is inspected. Those arriving after that Friday window may check-in at the trailer after 4:30 a.m. on Saturday. Each boat will be inspected each day and an Official will then issue each team a colored ribbon to attach to their lath as proof of inspection.  DUE TO THE EARLY DATE IT IS POSSIBLE THE DOCKS WILL NOT BE IN PLACE SO YOU MUST HAVE YOUR BOAT READY TO BE INSPECTED AS IT IS LAUNCHED. Tournament Officials WILL WEAR RED CAPS and will be available by 4:30 a.m. each day for this purpose;
    • All contestants will depart from and return to Elk Creek Marina. The boat ramp will open at 5:00 a.m. each day for boat launching. Starting times and weigh-in times will be strictly enforced to give everyone the same opportunity however, please be advised the NPS may choose to delay the start based upon available daylight or severely inclement weather. Should that occur, each team’s departure will be adjusted accordingly and all teams will still have exactly the same amount of time to fish.
