Spring has arrived and so has the time for the 12th 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 bowfishing action and a little friendly competition at one of the top bowfishing tournaments in the country.
The event, which is sanctioned through the Bowfishing Association of America, will be held April 30 — May 1, 2011 on Lake Guntersville in Guntersville, Ala., from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Contestants will meet at the Lurleen B. Wallace Pavilion.
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. A generous prize table is available for the remaining places. The teams with the heaviest carp, longest gar, heaviest grass carp and heaviest buffalo will win new bows/prizes as well. A random raffle for other great prizes will be held 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 (2- or 3-man tournament format). “Trailering will be allowed.”
