The latest (1230pm) standings from the 2009 Rock Around The Clock (RATC):

1st - Richard Wright Richmond, VA 3lb 13oz & 22-3/4"

2nd - Curtis Young Virginia Beach, VA 3lb 12oz & 23"

3rd - John Kelly Virginia Beach, VA 3lb 8oz & 21-1/2"

4th - Nigel Wright Richmond, VA 3lb 5oz -22"

5th - Jack Miller Hampton, VA 3lbs & 21-1/4"

We have a Father-Son team on the leader board right now with Richard and his son Nigel vs two VA Beach natives. All bets are off though as after dark tonight things could get heavier with the rock. Last years winning fish was 26lbs and 5th place was taken by a 6 pounder so no one on the leader board should feel real comfortable :director:

Shooter, Chapa Andrew & I covered the early shift registering folks and weighing in fish :coffee2: Now Dixie Steve, Dr. Bubba, and Shooter AKA Mr. 24 Hour Tournament HQ have it and my wife Brenda and the Parkers will then step in for mid to late evening, and lastly Shooter, Andrew & I will close it out :cya:

Our non-profit thanks to all those that made it out to Sea Gull Pier today for the 2009 installment of the RATC :icon_syda:

Rock on and around :blob8:
