With the rescheduling of the BASSMASTER BASS NATION KAYAK SERIES EVENT on Lake Chickamauga a few of us on the state level (AL, GA, TN) BASS NATION have decided to host a fellowship event the same planned date of May 23rd.
Before we go further understand that the differences between us on the state level and the National Series are many. There are multiple layers of rescheduling and guidelines that the National Series has to go by and to take into consideration.
We will be going by the CDC guidelines at the time of this future event so that if needed this event would be 100% virtual. We will most likely have a virtual Captain’s Meeting on Friday along with an optional in person one.
Please read all of the event information and message, call or text me with anything you need. It’ll be faster that way. Thank you all and we hope you’re ready to get out of the house and join us!!!
***MEMBERSHIP TO BASS NATION NOT REQUIRED FOR THIS EVENT***
This event is part of our efforts to recruit anglers to join our state BASS NATION clubs. Each state will have a state championship separate from this event in which the top 10% of that event’s anglers will qualify for the 2021 BASSMASTER CLASSIC!!!
This event holds no qualification value, it’s only for the payout, associated prizes, and fellowship. No spots will be awarded for the 2021 BASSMASTER CLASSIC.
