Fundraiser This Saturday

FUNDRAISER, SATURDAY – MARCH 22

Instead of rescheduling Qualifier #1, we will  have a fundraiser for this coming Saturday, March 22nd.

7:00AM to 3:30PM.

Check-in at the East boat ramp by 6:30 AM.

$40 per team.

Tournament Will Not Be Rescheduled

The first qualifying tournament of 2014 will not be rescheduled.

The 2014 tournament season will continue as scheduled and we will base qualification for the 2014 Fall Classic on the remaining seven qualifying tournaments as we did last year.

After contacting each of our member teams about rescheduling the first qualifying tournament, we found cases on each of the optional dates of March 22 and March 30th where both team members would be unable to attend.

In fairness to all of the 2014 Sangchris Bass Club members, we have decided to not penalize teams who would be unable to attend the proposed optional dates. Doing so would affect their pounds and points standings and would ultimately make qualification for the 2014 Fall Classic unfair and difficult for them.

Please understand the SBC officials made this decision based on the rules that are currently in place. There are no rules concerning the rescheduling of cancelled tournaments. There is also a rule that prevents rule changes from being made after the start of a tournament year.

NOTE: Tournament fees paid last Sunday will be used for the second qualifying tournament.  If you prefer a refund, let us know.

Thank you for being a member of the Sangchris Bass Club.

Steve Curry
Tournament Director
