2014 PA B.A.S.S. Casting Kids Championship: Capital City Bassmasters will be hosting this event July 26th at Bass Pro Shops in Harrisburg PA at 4pm. The kids will have quailified for this championship by competing in contests all over the state.

They will be in 3 age groups of 7-10 years old, 11-13 years old and 14-17 years old.
They will be competing for scholarships sponsored by Carlisle Outdoors Nationals and Sutliff Chevrolet. Along with trophies from the Pa B.A.S.S. Nation, Bass Pro Shops will be giving away some rod and reel combos. They will be competing at 3 skill levels, FLIP at 10 feet, PITCH at 20 feet and CAST at 30 feet. There will be entrants from at least 3 states competing for the titles. We are expecting 60 to 80 kids to be there along with families and friends to cheer them onto victory. We expect this great event to pull 400 to 500 people.
These children are the future of our sport and are learning a great skill that will help promote the sport of fishing that will help them to a lifetime of fun and outdoor enjoyment.
Hope to see you there. It is open to the public to come and enjoy the competition.

WEST DISTRICT MEETING NOTICE:
The next West District Meeting will be held on Thursday the 31st of July.
In the meantime we will be planning the Open Buddy Tournament Fund Raising Event. We will be needing plenty of help in a lot of different areas in the development of a succesful event. Please get in touch with me to assist us in this important venture. The money earned by this tournament helps to increase the payouts. If a lot of anglers help just a little, the work gets done much easier.

One of our members contacted me....They recieved a bill in the mail from PUBLISHERS PERIODIC SERVICES for bass masters magazine for 76$. They are out of White City, OR. The member called Bassmasters and they told him, that this company is fraudulent organization trying to scam bass members into paying for their memberships twice. If you recieve a bill from them please call bass ASAP and let them know. They will register your address and take care of it. Please pass this info onto your clubs, buddies etc
