Friday Night Seminar (Lake Lawn Resort)
Social Hour 6:00-7:00pm (Cash Bar)
Seminar with Dave Genz 7:00pm
Pro/Am pairings after the seminar

This NAIFC Pro Staff Seminar program is geared toward educating new amateur fishers to the world of tournaments and the best products in the industry. The seminar starts off Friday night with Dave Genz before the tournament. After the seminar the teams will be paired with NAIFC Pro Staff in smaller groups. These group tutorials will include specific techniques on how to catch fish on the lake of the tournament. The teams will be invited to pre-fish on Delavan Lake at 8:00am Saturday morning on the Tournament Lake. The Pro Staff will fish with the amateur teams demonstrating techniques needed to compete at the tournament level. The fishers will feel less pressure to compete against the pros and will be on the fast track to becoming pros themselves, eventually becoming teachers to their friends and fishers in the local community.

Each youth will be given sponsors products and promotional items. When available the kids will also enjoy a hot meal and drinks for a break from the action. Parents must accompany their kids during the event. This is an excellent opportunity to introduce a new way for kids to enjoy what the outdoors has to offer.
