2016 C.O.Pro-Teen Classic Teen field is FULL! Boaters needed!

Postby Cooch » Fri Jul 08, 2016 11:28 am

Due to the number of Boater's we have currently registered for this years event, we've locked the participants in at the 60 entrant field. We're reaching out as we now only have 23 boaters(2 have pulled out today) registered for this year's event. The event is coming up next weekend Sunday July 17th. We gotta pound the pavement and wires ta get some guy's help and ta git these kids out by Tuesday or we may be faced with canceling, or possibly rescheduling to later in the year for, this years event.

If you're free to help out next Sunday, please jump out to the Pro-Teen pages and register as a boater: http://www.westernbass.com/proteen/register. There's no charge for boaters, we cover the launch and feed ya, you get a 1/2 day on the water taking a kid fishing, play Big Brother and have a great time on the Delta. You don't have to be a tournament touring angler, just a guy with a boat to help out introduce these kids to the sport of bass fishing in a very relaxed competitive event. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a note at FlipBiguns@Yahoo.com via e-mail or call my home office number at 925-392-8871.

I agree. Ive been doing this event for a long time. Its fun and rewarding. For some reason it seems like its always the same boaters. Would be great to see some more anglers come out and support this event.
Fishing should be fun.

This will be my 5th Pro-Teen, but my 1st as a boater. This event made such a big impact on my love for tournament fishing and I learned so much from each of my boaters. You don't have to be a true "Pro" to volunteer. The fact that there's no waiting list this year shows how bad the lack of boaters really is. Come on guys!!!! This event made my summer every year!

This will be my second year as a boater. It is a great experience, and the kids are thrilled. Worth doing.

Hey Andy,
Looks like via your last post things are looking up. Does this mean there are enough right now to where the event is going to roll on for Sunday or is that still to be determined?

Thanks,
Randy

I felt compelled to help out so I signed up, but honestly I don't know anything about this event other than they are kids and boaters are needed.

Can someone clue me in on the details?
Do we just drive them around and let them pick the spots and work the trolling motor?
What time does this event start and when do we need to be there?

Any info would be great, thanks.

You guys are AWESOME! Since our crusade of posts here on Friday, FB posts, a visit with KB on Ultimate Bass Radio on Saturday and a lot of wire pounding thru today, our boater count is at 62! We now have a comfort zone of having enough boaters to get these 60 kids out. We feel comfy with adding teens if they should call me directly and request to get on a stand by between now and Sunday as we tend to have a group of boaters who never register, they just show up, as well as we will continue to encourage boaters to register if they are free and want to help out with the calls I continue and will probably get, thru Saturday. I know there are probably a number of teens who saw my posts back on the 4th we were closing the event, that would love to participate. That possibility now exists, let's do it, I'm gonna go build an additional 15 tackle packs just in case!

Thank You Guys!

Just giving a heads up to all boaters, checking in and getting your partner the day before the tournament makes the experience much more exciting for the Teen. I have learned so much from my Pros the day before the event, and I plan to meet and rig up and prepare my Teen at my boat after the evening check-in Saturday, it's really cool hanging out and talking fishing and was a highlight of every year I competed. Plus, it might make the blastoff quicker!
