Here is the info for camping at Hillsdale

• All campers must have a nightly camping permit.
• Campers in an electric and water camping site must pay a utility fee.
• Fires are allowed only in designated fire rings.

• There is currently no target practicing allowed in the Hillsdale State Park or Wildlife Areas except as authorized by the Park or Wildlife Area Managers.
• Pets are required to be on a leash or confined to a cage or vehicle in all state park permit areas except while hunting in designated hunting


Regulations
1. TOURNAMENT TAKE-OFF AND WEIGH-IN TIMES, LOCATION, OFFICIAL CHECK POINT AND BOAT INSPECTION: Tournaments will begin at safe light on the day of the tournament, with the exact time announced at the Pre-Tournament meeting. Weigh-in will be at 3:00 P.M. for all tournaments. There will be only one site for check-out in the morning and check-in in the afternoon; said location to be announced at the Pre-Tournament Meeting. At the time of morning inspection, all competitors must be in full compliance of all rules set forth by Directors. All boats shall identify themselves at the weigh-in site by means of boat number and proceed IMMEDIATELY to the designated weigh-in area.
2. SCORING: Largemouth Bass, Kentucky Bass, and Smallmouth Bass will be counted. Dead fish will result in a .50 (1/2) pound penalty. If dead fish is the largest of the creel, that .50 (1/2) pound will be deducted from your big bass weight. Any bass under the tournament’s legal length limit presented for weigh-in will result in disqualification of that fish and two (2) pounds being deducted from total weight of remaining creel. Golden Rule will be the official measure board. Tournament limit will be five (5) bass per boat. No more than five (5) bass will be allowed in live well at any time. Contestants are not allowed to continue fishing until they have culled down to their five (5) bass tournament limit per boat.
3. LATE PENALTY: Anglers not at designated check-in site by official designated time will be penalized one (1) pound for each minute late up to a maximum of ten (10) minutes (pounds). Penalized weight will be deducted from the total weight of angler’s stringer. After the maximum of ten (10) minutes has been exceeded, angler will forfeit all points/weight for the day’s competition, yet will still receive ten (10) show-up points.
4. POINTS: Points will be awarded as follows: 100 to the boater and 100 to the non-boater in the first place boat; 99 for second; 98 third, etc. Individuals will be awarded one (1) point for each pound of weight caught by the team. Individuals will also receive ten (10) show up points.

Good point, Caps. Might be worth mentioning to the not-so-tournament-savvy that it is a generally accepted rule to pay for half the boater's gas. This doesn't usually show up in the official rules, but is one of those unwritten rules that tends to pi$$ of boaters. And you don't want to [i$$ of the guy with his foot on teh trolling motor in a tournament...

And Slaya, we've talked, you can count me, and likely a boating partner in. Got a line on a few other "non-DHC" folks interested as well. I'll keep you posted via IM...

I will try to find some Wichita people, but having a hard time! You can plan on counting me in as well. Never have fished there, so really looking forward to it. Sounds like it is going to be a great time!

OK I know the time is getting close. After talking this thru with a couple people, I have decided that the prizes will be as follows

Cash prizes

Boaters
1st 50%
2nd 30%
3rd 20%


Non Boaters
1st 50%
2nd 30%
3rd 20%

This is the money that is left over after the permit and food is purchase. 100% of your investment comes back to you.

If you have any questions about this please let me know

Thanks
