      Mickelsen 2003 Results

We had 24 entries in the 2003 Bob Mickelsen Memorial tournament.   The weather was great and we generated $1700 for Mary Bridge Children's Hospital as well as more than 24 toys for the kids.  Many thanks to the sponsors, participants and club members that worked to make the tournament a success.  Congratulations to the team of Rob Towers and Mike Hostetter for 1st place with 13.07 #'s.  Mike

Buse had the tournament big fish of 5.79 pounds.

The complete results can be found on the club Web Site.  Other club members that fished:  Tom Melowitz and Rea Long - 2nd place, Mike Buse and Ken Ganancial - 8th place, Frank White and West Williams - 9th place, Rick Knauer and Kenn Brainerd - 14th place, Joe Scheperle and Art Soto  - 17th place and Larry Willaims and Jim Littrel - 18th place.

 Lake Washington Results
We had 14 club members fishing the last club tournament of the year on Lake Washington.  The wind howled all day  and only 6 club members  caught fish.  Congratulations to Ken Ganancial for 1st place , Frank White for second place and a whopping 5.45 # big fish and Doug Jorgensen for 3rd place.  It's worth noting that there was a 100% bass tournament the same day where the team of Brush and Petroski weighed a 5 fish limit of 25.71 pounds.  What a bag! The complete results are on the club Web Site.

Tom Melowitz is again this year putting together an order to Yamamoto.  Last year Joe Perrin and Mike Buse jumped in when I went to Texas and helped out.  We must buy a minimum quantity of 5 for a style and color ordered.  So unless someone else orders the same thing as you ordered you will have to order a minimum quantity of  5 for everything you order.
