BONFIRE FESTIVAL & TOURNAMENT SERIES

LET’S LIGHT IT UP!

Join us at Camp Mack, a Guy Harvey Lodge, Marina & RV Resort as we LIGHT IT UP in 2022 with the Bonfire Tournament Series, a 100% payout 4-event bass fishing tournament series open to all anglers. The Tournament is a team event and will include three 1-day tournaments qualifiers, the Lunker Lovin’ Smackdown (April 2), the Blazing Bass Challenge (June 4) and the Tickled Pink Playoff (September 24). The series concluded with the Bonfire Shootout, a two-day tournament (November 5-6). To fish the series, you must be a member of the Angler House Club, which is open to all to join and offers various membership benefits to its members. Anglers can participate in either the Open Division at $100 / Angler or Family Division of $100 / Team, which team registration will include entry into Big Fish Pot. The Family Division is eligible only to junior anglers who are in elementary/ high school or graduate high school in 2022 and fish with his/her parent or grandparent as a team member. No other family relatives of any kind are eligible for qualification to fish with a junior angler and only these two persons may occupy a boat while fishing. Each of the tournament festivals will have activities and events for anglers and non-anglers to enjoy with proceeds being donated to support local charities and conservation groups. Don’t miss out on the fun for you, your family, and friends!
