points awarded during that event(s). Disqualified contestant(s) may be asked to immediately
leave the Lake and NO refunds will be made for either the Lake and or the Tournament Entry

Admissions for that individual(s).
2) If you witness anyone not following any of the Official Tournament or Lake Rules, please
IMMEDIATELY report the suspected violators to Tournament or Lake Officials. As it is

discretion of the Officials, and that decision will be final.
