Tournament to adopt new format

November 2, 2010.
The Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship (FFCBC) will adopt a new format for 2011. Gord Watson, the incoming chairman, recognized that some changes had to be made when he assumed the chair. He knew that he had to start by increasing angler participation. Last year, in 2010, 106 teams participated. That was a 13-year low in the sixteen year history of the tournament. He picked up the phone and started talking with anglers. He also closely examined a feedback and suggestion survey of about 30 anglers that was conducted after the 2010 tournament.
