The East Texas Chapter of Bass N Badges will be having an organizational meeting for our 2016 season on Tuesday, January 26th at 6:30 PM (location TBD). For those who have not heard of us, we are a bass club for First Responders (Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, EMS, etc.), Military, and our Supporters. Membership has grown the past two seasons and we welcome anyone who is interested in becoming a member to join us.

We have a tournament each month (February - September) with our year end "Classic" being held in October. Annual dues are $20.00 with each tournament costing $25.00 (includes $5.00 big bass) per angler. Each tournament is a team format and we give members the option of fishing with another member, a guest, or their spouse.

We fish the smaller lakes in East Texas (Hawkins, Lone Star, Gilmer, Tankersley, etc.) and will be kicking off the season at Lake Welsh in February. We allow the members to fish either Saturday or Sunday of the scheduled weekend, with the standings being announced after Day Two's weigh-in. Number of places to be paid (1st, 2nd, 3rd) is determined by number of participates.

This will be our only formal meeting of the season. We get together after each tournament for fellowship, food, beverage, and to decide the next month's venue. I encourage anyone who cannot attend this season's organizational meeting, but is still interested in our awesome bass club to contact me.

We do allow individuals who truly support first responder's efforts to join the club.

GTrigg - Do you know if the Dallas-Ft Worth area circuit was organized? I'd like to fish with fellow first responders but the East Texas lakes ar too far away for me.

I know they had a meeting back in the Fall, but got little response. Last I heard they had decided to hold a couple of open tournaments to gain interest, but I fear the heavy rains hampered those efforts.

I hope they get things going in the future, would love to hold a Classic at the end of the year for all chapters. If you ever have the opportunity to join us one weekend, we would sure welcome you to fish with us.
