“Hurricane Ivan is expected to greatly affect air travel,” said BASS Tournament Director Trip Weldon. “The threat of flight delays and possible cancellations result in continuing logistics difficulties for everyone involved with the Busch Shootout and has resulted in a postponement of the event.”
The Shootout will be rescheduled at a later date to be determined.
BASS is the world's largest fishing organization, sanctioning more than 20,000 tournaments worldwide through its Federation. The CITGO Bassmaster Tournament Trail presented by Busch Beer, which includes the all-new Bassmaster Elite 50 series, is the oldest and most prestigious pro bass fishing tournament circuit and continues to set the standard for credibility, professionalism and sportsmanship as it has since 1968.
