Re: Coors Light Delta Event OPEN TO ALL Teams | $150 to Fish for a Jeep

If the field is "capped" at (120) Boats, then the intent of the rules is being maintained.
If there are going to be (250) Boats now in this "Invitational" then the guys that worked to qualify are getting screwed and this is a money grab for Anglers Press.
