From the President

President’s Note:

I want to take this opportunity to thank each participant for this year’s successful tournament.  So many people come together to make this event one of the best oilfield fishing tournaments our industry has. Special thanks goes to Mr. Gary Clouse and Larry Puckett of Phoenix Boats and Mercury Marine. Without their support and participation, we would not have been able to give away such a nice grand prize. I would also like to thank Mr. Todd Driscol and Lowrance Electronics for supplying the HDS 5’s for the boat. I also want to extend a very sincere “thank you” to Jordan’s Marine, and Mr. Scott Jordan and his crew for being a big part of our event. They brought several boats in from Vidor, TX in order for us to offer the demo rides again this year. Not only does this add value to our event, but it’s a chance to show off some of the best bass boats on the market today. I don’t believe there is another boat manufacture in business today who has a better product and certainly not for the price Phoenix Boats/Jordan’s Marine are offering. If you are considering purchasing a new boat in the near future, please give Phoenix Boats and Jordan’s Marine an opportunity to work with you. As a Phoenix owner myself, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Folks, I don’t have the proper words to adequately thank Teresa Biscamp and Suncoast Resources and Henry and Debbie Glaze for supplying the food and preparing the meals all three days. The food was outstanding and Teresa and her crew did a fantastic job in serving our fishermen with some of the best meals in the lake area. THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH!

Next, I want to thank all our board members for their dedication and hard work this year. Several people from three different states come together to put this event on. Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for all you do. ROC would not be what it is without your hard work throughout the year.

At the risk of being repetitious, I want to sincerely thank each of you, whether you were a participant or board member. Our goal for 2015 is to have a maximum of 250 teams and I feel confident we will attain this number, but it is going to take all of you spreading the word and inviting your oilfield friends who may not be participating to come join the fun.
