DECATUR, Ala. — There's at least one first in the Evan Williams Bourbon Dixie Duel on north Alabama's Lake Wheeler. The 2009 Elite Series tournament marks the first time that a mayor has served as a tournament marshal. Actually, such a distinction isn't likely to make the "Guinness Book of World Records," as this is only the third tournament where marshals, or non-fishing observers, have been employed.
