Big Gator Shootout

Well-known member
Here are the flyers for the awards ceremony. This is going to be a great event! We are going to have an awesome band and Loughman's is going to provide great BBQ and a fantastic venue. We are going to have Bounce Houses and snow cones for the kids. There are GREAT door prizes for those registered and a chance to win raffle items for everyone attending. There will be several vendor and club booths to check out while your there. Piratecom will be giving a demo on their systems and they have also donated a system to CFTH to Raffle!!! The FAA will have a booth, as well as Airboating Magazine just to name a few. John from Backcountry Designs will be displaying his artwork and can make you a custom Decal if you want.

All American Alligator donated Alligator Products for 5th Place, their products are high quality. Our Sponsor Horton donated a crossbow for 4th place which will certainly make a nice addition to someone’s gator hunting arsenal. Diamondback Airboats donated a Sensenich Prop for 3rd place, and of course we have the cash prizes for 2nd and 1st. Our top five placing gators will also receive a Hot Spray Bedliner. A special thanks to HOTSPRAY for donating Bedliners! Check them out at hotpray.com.

Again we really want to thank our sponsors for donating such great prizes; we couldn't make this happen without them. These are great companies, go to their sites and check out their products. Look forward to seeing everyone there. Time is running out; please turn your gators into CFTH.

Look forward to meeting everyone tomorrow. Make sure you say hello as I would love to put some names with faces. Weather should be great.
 
Grayson, You have really busted your arse for this. We are leaving Odessa right now for the trip over to share your success. Good Job.
 
Just got back from Shoot Out. Great day. Well done event. Looking forward to this one getting bigger each year.

Got some good photos for our next issue and will also post some up on our website.
 
Grayson,

My wife and I had a great time at the shootout awards today. I'm glad I brought my parents along because they also had a great time. I have participated with some high profile tournaments and this one has all the makings of them with a down home feel. I was excited about winning a door prize and a raffle. I look forwad to that hog hunt with CFTH. Thanks again.

The shoot out was a great time and great atmospher there at Loughman Lodge. That was my first visit and I thuroughly enjoyed myself. It's always nice to see everyone. I was glad to see and say hello to Jeff and Dawn Patterson. I've not seen them for a long time. It's always fun to spend time with BREWSTER and Niki. BREW was running some bugs out of his new boat but that it sure is a beauty. Good to see Bishop Wright, Dave Howard, Franky(on another tough day for CaneFan's) Vinnie, ScottG, Big Al, Big Daddy, Big Gobbler, and others.
As always I really enjoyed seeing Rick, Theresa, Tristan, and Eathan. It was a pleasure to meet Mrs. Carroll (It's true Dudley, they did eat allot of Coot Gizzards & Rice).
Rick, and his friends Jody, Scott, and Crystal tooks Cowboy and I for a ride after dinner to Bear Bluff and Orange Mound. Nice riding and great company. Thanks for sharing that with us.
Got home and got to bed around 2:00am after a very fun day.

I had a blast...thanks to Grayson & family, as well as Loughman Lake Lodge for puttin it on. Hope we do it every year from now on.

Also had a good time ridin w/ Kristal & Don Marquis, as well as a cool St. Johns River night ride w/cowboy, canefan, surban & daughter Crystal, & Jody. I only had one mag firing, but that 470 didn't even notice that once the sun went down. :)

Wow! I missed the opportunity to meet quite a few of you...hopefully when I have boat in the water that will change.
I can vouch for brewster...looked like that lycoming was doin the moonwalk :D
