Dear Prospective Bass Club Member,
Thank you for expressing interest in joining the Centennial Bass Club. The purpose of this letter is to give you an idea of what our Bass Club is all about, and possibly answer some of the questions you may have.
The mission of Centennial Bass Club is to get people who are interested in the sport of bass fishing together for fun fishing. In the winter months, this means monthly meetings that are held on the first Tuesday of every month at a local resteraunt. In the spring, summer, and fall months we meet after the mini tournaments, which are held at various local lakes. The annual membership fee is $57.00, and you must be a paid member of B.A.S.S. ($20.00/yr is in addition to the $57.00). This is a great opportunity for the avid angler or the beginning bass fisherman to become more involved in the sport, and to learn from others who know local waters.
The mini-tournaments begin in April and we meet at the main boat ramp of the lake being fished. Between 4:30 - 5:00 pm we draw for partners. The entry fee is $15.00 and you can sign up as a boater (with proof of boat insurance) or as a non-boater (who contributes $20 for boat and gas expenses). We fish from 5:30pm to about 9:00 pm. Winners are announced after all cards are tabulated. Four times throughout the season we have weekend tournaments for those who wish to travel to places outside the state. Weekend tournaments are $70.00 entry fee and $25.00 per day is given to the boater for expenses.
We practice Catch and Release and measure the Bass with a Golden Rule Board, which the boaters carry on board. Cash and other prizes are awarded, and there is also a payout for the biggest Bass of the tournament.
Well, hopefully this letter has answered some of your questions and you're ready to meet new people who enjoy bass fishing as much as yourself. Come learn new techniques and effective methods from members who are more than willing to share their knowledge about bass fishing. Please, if you have any further questions feel free to contact us.
Good luck and Good Fishing!
President, Centennial Bass Club
