FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

EVENT CANCELLATION - BPS GRAPEVINE SERIES # 3 LAKE LEWISVILLE - SUNDAY APRIL 22ND!
Most of you have learned by now that the THSBA made the decision to reschedule their "Regional Championship" on top of our series qualifier at Lake Lewisville on Sunday April 22nd. I only learned of this yesterday afternoon when several of our anglers called and/or messaged me to advise of this development. Unfortunately nobody from THSBA took any time to give me a courtesy call to advise of their intention or show any concern as to how their decision would impact our event!
Just to clarify for our membership / anglers, when I originally planned our 2018 schedule I made it a point to NOT schedule any of our events on the same dates as the THSBA (including other regional trails) to avoid conflicts, and more importantly allow many of you who have committed to being a boat captain for THSBA anglers to not have any conflict with our schedule. It is for that very reason that I have cancelled our upcoming series event at Lake Lewisville on April 22nd. This event will be rescheduled!
I have always supported high school bass fishing and will continue to do exactly that. The THSBA have built an outstanding program as evident by the explosive growth throughout Texas. These kids have worked very hard to qualify for the upcoming championships and they are the future of the sport we love. So we will step aside and reschedule our Lewisville event. I will advise on the new date as soon as I have selected it and initiated the permit process.
I thank you all for your continued support and understanding of why I was forced into making this decision. In over a decade of hosting tournaments I have never had to deal with a situation as "unfortunate" as this one.
