The HMC is held on 5 different lake groups, encompassing 10 lakes and the WI River Flowage. In order to provide adequate coverage on the lakes for judging and registering, we will need 17 boats on the water each day, or 34 boats total for the weekend.
Volunteers must provide their own boat; however the Tournament will provide bump boards and other event supplies. Volunteers will receive a prepaid debit card to help cover gas for the day as well as $60 for each day they volunteer - e.g. someone who volunteers for both Saturday and Sunday will receive a gas card plus $120. Alternately, volunteers may opt to have their payment made directly to the Musky Club, Lake Association or other group of their choice and the Chamber of Commerce will submit a check directly to their respective choice.
To register to judge the tournament, volunteers should contact the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce, indicate they would like to volunteer for the tournament and whether they are opting for payment to be made to them or to their chosen group, and provide the day(s) they are available.
Tournament Judge Boat hours are 6:30 am-5 pm Saturday, September 26 and 6:30 am-12 pm Sunday, September 27.
Enjoy a nice fall day on the water and see those monster fish caught in a lake near you!
