    I'm heading up early that Saturday to see them get ready and launch. I'll head over to the Expo Center afterward until 3 when I'll hit the weigh-in.

    I've heard eveything at the Classics is free and other than the fact the weights will probably be lower than past Classics it should be a good time.

    All three locations of the event are within a mile of each other. Leaving the truck parked and walking makes this even better.

    I'd like to stay for the final day but our tourny director scheduled us a tourny that day.

    nature is nature, sports is sports, the less they intermix the better(especially for the environment). I'm gonna cringe the day I see rock climbing (the kind on rocks, not plastic, and not bolted sport routes either) done up on tv like the way they do these tourneys. climbers hate that crap. no comment on the athleticism of guys trying to run up el capitan in sub 2 hours vs pro fisherman. though I do enjoy watching the stuff and am thus partly responsible for why its gotten where it has(guilty). ever notice (at least on the flw tour) how fake the crowd noise is at the weigh-ins. its almost as bad as an old kung fu movie where the "yeeee, waaaa!!!" comes 3 seconds after (or before) the guy kicks the other guy...
  6. Not sure how much I will spend up there, but I am going home for the week and will spend some time at the events. I just want to take it all in.

    Reel Lady Dreams DO come true!

    We will be staying at the Courtyard Marriot Downtown. Anyone else staying in overnight in Pittsburgh? We really want to bring our boat, but not really sure about the How's and Where's. I cant see pulling this boat into a parking garage.. That would be a bad situation :eek: I wonder if there are any docks we could rent (near by) for Friday and Saturday night? If anyone has any ideas.. please share!

    I plan on going sometime, but don't know when for sure.....I am not familiar with the area, so it is hard to tell where or when I will be there.
