County Offices and Courts will be closed on Monday, February 15, 2016 in observance of the President's Day Holiday. The Landfill will be open.
Critical services at Larimer County are not disrupted by closures.
This special event is a team bass tournament with 50 teams participating (maximum per Mr. Caughlan) and we anticipate little or no impact on the natural environment, no impact on adjacent lands, and very little impact on parking since we have basically an overnight parking and have left the area by 10:00 am on Sunday morning. As teams check-in they will be directed to purchase parks pass and get their vessel inspected at the ANS Inspection station. They can then launch and meet for the on-the-water safety/rules/live well inspection meeting. All contestants must abide by state and local laws, and DPW regulations. An aerated tank system will be in place for the weigh-in and release boats will dispense all the fish after they have been weighed. No extra staff should be necessary for our event and the existing rest rooms will be adequate and we will ask all participants to carry out all trash. Post event clean-up will insure no reclamation is needed at the event site (Swim beach shelter). If first aid is needed we have several EMT's who fish this event and we do stress safety first and foremost, such as night driving, out-of-bounds areas, and any other risks/hazards. Insurance coverage is required for each boat ($100,000) and Larimer County will be listed as additional insured under our $1,000,000 dollar B.A.S.S. policy. This is our fourteenth annual FMO and we appreciate your cooperation and partnership through the years. Any questions please call Bill Wilson (970) 218-2895 or email. Thank you for considering our request.
