Tom Fry, Chairman of the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship, announced that the field of the 15th Anniversary 2009 tournament would be increased to 150 teams.
The entry fee for 2009 will be $1,000.00 CDN per team.
The prizeboard, based on 150 teams, will be a total of $127,500.00. This represents an 85% payback.
As previously announced the captain of every team competing in the 2008 Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship will be offered a spot in the 2009 event.
The 2009 team number will be the same as the team’s 2008 final rank.
Returning team captains have until September 30, 2008 to confirm their participation and make a minimum deposit of $250.00 to hold the spot. The entry must be paid in full by April 30, 2009.
A draw to fill the balance of the field will be made in early October. Revised entry forms will be available soon both online and from Director of Angler Registrations Pam Buttner.
“We are looking forward to receiving input from our Angler Advisory Board and all tournament anglers regarding the format, the prize board breakdown and any suggestions that they may have. Any comments or suggestions can be directed to any board member or to firstname.lastname@example.org stated Fry
