Good afternoon O3,
It's quite simple.
It was thought that Harbor Marine could launch the Tournament in May, without benefit of show season (namely the Seattle Boat Show) and still get the participants needed to run the event.
Sadly, there were simply not enough participants to warrant running the event.
Again, I would like to point out that the Port of Everett and Harbor Marine envision this event as a fund raiser for CCA and the WACPAC. No one except the winning teams were going to profit from this event.
I'm sorry you canceled your plans and have a salty view of fishing tournaments.
Would you like to come fishing with me some time and we could talk about helping the salmonid resource through fishing events?
I've got an open boat tomorrow. Meet you at Harbor Marine at 0430 when they open for coffee... you would have to wait until 0600 for breakfast or a pizza
