Re: Open Team Nite Tournament at Eastman Lake on Saturday June 3 & 4 2017 "NO MEMBERSHIP FEE"

Just a heads up. The river is closed still and will remain closed until August 1st. Many boats are running up in the river lately because the regulation dropped the restriction, however the Army Corp. of Engineers has their policies and regulations.

Sounds easy enough. Try and find these straps are very difficult. They have a safety strap and hook attached. The only place I found that carries them is directly through Ranger. I ordered one today.

Re: Calibrating your Point 1

Edd,
Wow! I did that little test....the compass went nuts even with power off! Seems the trolling motor, even though there was no power to it, is causing havoc to the magnetic field. I guess I'll be moving the Point 1.

Thanks!
