Congratulations to PAT KOFFLER AND DAVE LINTON POINT CHAMPIONS FOR 2012. They should be assigned Boat #1 at the TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS to be held on Kentucky Lake next May.
2013 SCHEDULE APRIL 21 MAY 19 JUNE 2 JUNE 23 JULY 21 AUGUST 18 SEPTEMBER 8 .............................................. A list is forming for all fishermen who qualified for the TOC, lost their partners, and want to partner up with someone else to attend the TOC on Kentucky Lake as a team. Contact me on the hotline. We have plenty of time until the TOC to get this accomplished. CR
A letter from my boss follows! Hello Everyone,
I am happy to announce Kentucky Lake, Moors Resort as our Championship host site! The event will be held May 7th thru the 10th out of Moors Marina and Resort. The first week of May on Kentucky and Barkley Lakes offer some of the best fishing in the country as the water is normally in the bushes and the famed yellow flowers and the big fish move right up with the water.
This has been the most challenging year ever for me to secure a site for our Championship. With the down economy many communities simply do not have the resources to provide our anglers the perks they have grown to expect at our Championship. Moors and Kentucky Lake have stepped up to provide our angler's these perks!
I will be putting this info on the site today but there is one MAJOR rule with this announcement. From this point forward no new memberships will be accepted from individuals or teams with Kentucky addresses. If they have not been fishing this year they cannot enter now. Sheri at the main office will be monitoring this so DO NOT accept any new teams or members from Kentucky. Be vigilant in observing addresses on new entries from this point forward. This rule will also be on our Championship page. They would really struggle to qualify now anyway but we want to close that door completely.
