It is great to see more and more Junior teams participating in tournaments. Dads, grandpa's, uncles, friends are picking up more kids as team mates, some as young as 6 years old. Bass Champs offers a great incentive to get more youth involved. Any team that consists of one adult and one junior, 15 years old or less, will be considered a "Junior Team". Bass Champs will pay ½ of the entry fee for all Junior Teams. Each Junior Team is responsible for their annual 2010 membership cost, and the junior angler must be present and in the boat to receive the discount.
The next East Texas Region tournament will be on Sam Rayburn February 27th. Bass Champs will be heading to Lake Belton next to kick off the Central Region February 6. For more information click to www.BassChamps.com or call 817-438-3274.
