2015 Chautauqua Lake Musky Tournament Postponed


After careful consideration we have decided to postpone the tournament due to safety concerns based on the weather forecast. The forecast is calling for heavy rain and strong S and SE winds with the potential for thunderstorms as well. There is a potential for high waves based on the current wind forecast.
We are considering a rescheduling it for July 11th. I hope to have an answer within a few days.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause anyone.
