I'll be there, if they don't postpone. I was talking to a ranger 2 weeks ago and he said if they don't get more ice they won't be able to hold it.

Yes the ice is not thick enough for couple hundred people. I think this year tournament will be a lots of people.

On their website it says if conditions aren't favorable to have the event it will be moved to 2/15/20 I believe.

I just got an email from Nate saying that there are still tickets left for this weekend at Boyd so it looks like he plans on going for it.

From what I know about the folks at Tightline the tournament will be well run and if it wasn't safe they wouldn't even attempt it. This tournament has been cancelled/ rescheduled several times in years past. I will see you folks out there. My bet is winning fish is a rainbow trout less than 2 lbs.

I will be there and how there is enough ice IDK! Seems like there has been some really nice weather to do it but from what I've learned that there is enough cold and longer nights to maintain and grow ice even though it's a high of 50 in the area. The wind is usually the biggest threat to breaking up there ice and ruining the event. I purchased a season pass and am group A but I would say from past events that it really doesn't matter as much as you think it does to be on the outside edges... good luck!

How thick do you need the ice be ?
I have been fishing it for the last three days and have drilled over fifty holes and it's five inches thick of hard ice at Boyd lake.I have seen the rangers every day drive by but they have not come out to check my license or ask me how thick is the ice , however I have seen them giving tickets for not having a parks permit.If I was to bet there will be a tournament I put all my money in it.Good luck to everyone and do not forget you shoe spikes it it is very slick.

I was just on Tightlines Outdoors checking the Boyd tourney for a friend (he wants to do walk up and buy a ticket Sat morning) and it said sold out. I know they were selling flights E and F yesterday.

Ya'll have fun now!

I would double check with them that it is sold out cause they sold tickets AT the event last year and stopped selling them online a few days before.
