I spoke with Ted at Hopeville Pond State Park. He'll tell the Friday crew to leave the gate to the parking area along Hopeville Road unlocked for us. We can launch on the beach, away from the campsites. On the Hiking Map on the park's web page ( http://www.ct.gov/deep/cwp/view.asp?a=2716&q=325218&deepNav_GID=1650%20#map ), you can see that if you bear to the right after entering the park from Hopeville Road, there's a big parking area at the end of the road. That's where we'll meet.

So the morning started out great for the tournament. Got up at 2:45 AM to make the 68 mile trek to the park. Never been to the park before and learned that the launch is near campsites, so Peco called down and got them to leave the gate unlocked to the beach which is well away from the camp sites.
Well when I got there I found the gate shut and assumed it was locked so I went to the launch and learned that it is inches away from camp sites and there was nowhere to check people in. So I sent a text to Peco and learned that the gate was just pinned shut. When I got to the beach I found the air cool and no wind.
For the tournament we had six people show up two were returns from the last one which was great and a new comer (Bob) who camped out and brought Danish for us, thanks Bob.
In total: 29 Bass were caught with a total length 359.75, with the lunker measuring 19.5”
1. Anthony V. 71.25” Tackle bag winner
2. Phil C. 70” Caught 14 fish
3. Alan 60 Lunker winner
4. Carlos 31
5. Josh 28.5
6. Bob 12
All in all a great day glad everyone came out.

Oh, and it turns out that my wife wasn't mad at me for going fishing on our wedding anniversary. I got home plenty early enough for us to go out for a nice dinner. Thumbs Up
