Rudolph v. Arizona B.A.S.S 182 Ariz. 622 (1995) Fact: Operative Facts: GCBB sponsored a bass fishing tournament. Originally it was for Alamo Lake, however, since that lake was unavailable at the time, they choose Bartlett lake. There were some members who were opposed to this because that lake was congested with boats and jet ski traffic. They however went with it. They imposed a 1pm deadline, for fish to be weighted, otherwise, there would be penalties. Also, there was only 1 weighing station, which was located at the launch area.

Issue: Whether GCBB could be sued on negligence because they chosen a place with heavy boating and jet ski traffic.
