Thanks to a generous donation by Eric Thomas (a world renown catfish expert), we are able to offer two scholarships to local youth who would not be able to attend Cataclysm due to the financial expense. This scholarship would include entry to the event, a t-shirt and a banquet ticket. A legal guardian must be available by phone and be able to come pick the child up at all times in case of emergency. Applicants must be between the ages of 11-17, mature and serious about the hobby as there will not be direct supervision available. I will try to keep an eye on them, but I can't deal with discipline problems while the event is running. Insecure and/or shy is okay. They can hang with me throughout the event if need be. I might even put them to work a little - no slave labor, just fun stuff. We will have a legal waiver for liability that a legal guardian must sign prior to the event.
