OPEN BENEFIT TOURNAMENT ON LAKE TEXOMA ON APRIL 26, 2014
This is the annual benefit tournament for the Baptist Home for Girls. All proceeds from this tournament will go to meet medical and personal needs of girls living at the Baptist Home For Girls in Madill, Oklahoma. This is a very good organization and I encourage all Future Bass Members to grab a friend and help support these young girls. Lets try to make this annual tournament as large as we can. The girls from the home work very hard to feed every entrant a hamburger meal to show their appreciation. For more info please call Matt Cunningham at 580-465-6120 or Joe Copeland at 580-504-7320. I have flyers to hand out at our tournaments registration and weigh in.
Thank You, Joe Copeland
Changes for 2014.
(1st) The merger of the N.E. Oklahoma (Ft. Gibson, Hudson, Tenkiller) and Grand Lake. These two Divisions of Future Bass will qualify for the Grand Lake Championship on Oct.25th & 26th. All other Divisions will qualify for the Texoma Championship on Sept. 13th & 14th. To qualify for the championship, a team must finish in the top 50% of the division they choose to fish. The top ten (10) teams from each Division will be eligible to to compete at both championships.
(2nd) In order to keep the Angler of The Year race interesting, we have decided to double the place points for the last event of the year in each division. This will give a lot of teams a chance to make up several places in the points race, be it for A.O.Y. or the top ten spots. Double points will only be place points, (NOT POUNDS) 1st 200, 2nd 198, 3rd 196....
(3rd) PICK SEVEN RACE- Effective in 2014, all teams entering ANY seven (7) Future Bass tournaments, regardless of point standings, will qualify to fish the Championship of their choice. (Grand Lake or Texoma) Not both, as a team still has to place in the top ten of their division to fish both Championships. (See PICK SEVEN RACE in the Latest News For Details)
(4th) Effective in 2014, all teams will be allowed to have a substitute two times, in years past, only one.
Good Luck and good fishing.
Thanks, Joe Copeland
All entrants in Future Bass divisions will display a bright pink ribbon.
This will be for identification and in honor of breast cancer awareness.
