BASS CANCELS BASSMASTER EVENT AT SAM RAYBURN RESERVOIR DUE TO IMPACT OF HURRICANE RITA
Due to the impact of Hurricane Rita, BASS has cancelled the ESPN Outdoors Bassmaster Series event scheduled on Oct. 9 on Sam Rayburn Reservoir in Jasper, Texas.
Hurricane Rita left many businesses in the area without essential services and unable to support a tournament of this magnitude.
Anglers who registered and paid for this event - along with the four preceding it - are still eligible to qualify for the ESPN Outdoors Bassmaster Series second-chance tournament, scheduled Nov. 11-12. Qualifications will be based on performance in the four previous divisional events.
All anglers who paid to fish the event on Sam Rayburn, regardless of their qualification status in the second-chance tournament, will receive a full refund.
For more information, please call 407-566-BASS.
