We had 34 boats at the Lee Pruiett Memorial Bass Tournament on Ray Hubbard Lake. 5/21/17
Lee Pruiett the club President passed away suddenly at Toledo Bend during a GarTex Bass Club Tournament. The club was deeply saddened as a result. Mitch York and the GarTex club wanted to help the family with overwhelming expenses. This was a celebration of Lees passion for Bass Fishing and a way for us to give back as a tribute to a beloved club President.
Over $2000 was presented to his family from donations, the tournament, & door prize drawings. A few heartfelt speeches were given and some tears were shed.
The participants were blessed with a 133% payout which is very uncommon for a benefit Tournament.
