Remember that credentials will be checked at the door and no one will be allowed to enter for any reason without them. Should something occur that needs security assistance, please contact a Board or staff member who will be able to direct you to a Security officer.
AWARDS & PRIZES:
Each night, badge-numbers will be drawn for door prizes. This year, the FOA has decided that for each fishing team, each of the 6-Anglers & the 4 non-competing guest, will be eligible for the regular nightly door prizes. Only 6-Anglers are eligible for the Grand Prizes Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The list of winners will be displayed on a scrolling board throughout the night. For Thursday & Friday night, if an angler’s number is pulled and he or she is not present, the door prize will be held until 7:45pm Saturday for claiming. Any door prize not claimed at that point will will be reserved by FOA for following year’s door prizes.
For the Grand Prize drawing on each night, the person drawn must be present to claim the prize. They must then show their Rodeo badge and picture ID for confirmation to claim the prize.
On behalf of the Fourchon Oilman’s Association Board, we “THANK YOU” for your participation and continued support!
We wish everyone Good Luck fishing!!
