The National Fish Hatchery at Mommoth Springs, AR provided their aerated fish truck to be used for releasing the fish that were weighed in. This was a valuable asset to the tournament since one goal is to release the fish alive.

Thanks also to Sheriff Montgomery and Terry Johnson of the Baxter County Sheriff's Department for providing the quality assurance testing.

Special thanks to BassCat Boats for the donation of the Phelix BassCat Boat given to 1st place and to the others who donated either their time, merchandise or monetarily to the tournament.
