Barr Lake Blast II - May 31, 2008
The 2008 Barr Lake Blast II turned out to be a tremendous day on the water! Thirteen teams battled it out for 8 hours at Barr Lake State Park in the third tournament of the year. Great weather and favorable bowfishing conditions added up for a great day on the water. Over 190 Carp weighing in at 1,686 pounds were harvested which turned out to be the best tournament results to date. All of the fish harvested in the tournament were donated to the Wild Animal Sanctuary to feed dozens of bears, wolves, tigers and other animals under their care.Percentage cash payouts and prizes were awarded to the winners, as well prize drawings for non-winning participants. We would like to thank everyone who came out to participate and our generous tournament sponsors who donated many prizes, including NOS Energy Drink & Corazonas Snacks who provided free drinks & chips to participants.
