The 2010 Aqua Aces Rodeo will go on as planned, and be ready for a huge prize table that will be up for grabs even if you don't have a chance to dive.
Rodeo starts 06/24 and ends 06/27. Scales close at 2PM. Price is $45 and you get 3 drink tickets. Additional beer is like a one or two dollar donation so thats a great deal. Plus, water is free with your rodeo ticket. Site is just 15 minutes from New Orleans at the Bonnet Carre Spillway Pavillion on Hwy. 61, Norco, La.
As for prizes, boy do we have them for you and you dont have to weigh a fish to get em! Most raffle tickets will be 4 or 5 for $20 (the small details are in the works, but you know its a good deal)
Here are the bigger prizes:
1. 7 Day Blackbeard cruise to the Bahamas
2. Big Ass Icey Tek cooler (yes, that's the model number)
3. Riffe No Ka Oi spear gun
4. 2 night stay at a nice New Orleans hotel (I think it's the Royal Senesta)
5. 2 different dive computers (Oceanic and Aeries)
6. 2 Courtside tickets to a Hornets basketball game valued at over $300 each. This prize also comes with a free parking pass and a pass for the VIP buffet!
We also have alot of smaller prizes. You know, masks, fins, ect. (lots of etc.)
You might even win a gift card to a restaurant. We have like 30 gift cards that go up to $50!!! For one raffle ticket, you could be eating for free at a local restaurant, and that supports our local economy, as well as Children's Hospital.
You say you cant dive in the Gulf? No problem. We have added 3 categories. Catfish, Garfish, and Drum. Sheeps head was always a category, so jump in the lake to benefit Childrens Hospital then get your butt to the rodeo.
We will also be having our kids table again, so bring the whole family. The kids tickets will be really cheap (probably a dollar or so) so they will have a great time winning something. Plus we will have a bounce house for them to keep them out of your hair while you have a great time.
But wait, there is more. FOOD!!!
For just $8, you can dine on Beef Brisket and baby back ribs!!!
Like oysters? You cant get them, but we got em!!! Acme Oyster house is proud to support Children's Hospital so we will have some of their stuff at the rodeo. Of course there will hamburgers, hot dogs, sides, etc.
So there you have it. Great music, food, prizes, trophies, activities for the kids and it benefits Children's Hospital. Diving or not, this is one event not to be missed. Please go to Aquaaces.net for full detalis and rodeo rules.
