Report from KBN Spring Meeting
All qualifiers, Mr.Bass and other qualifying tournaments will be run as a Pro-Am which means all boaters MUST sign up with a non-boater (you are not allowed to fish alone) and the boater will have full control of the boat for all tournament hours.

EKB was brought up quite a few times during the meeting, which is a good thing!  Keep up the good work!
There is a new incentive program within KBN.  The three clubs that gain the most members during the year will receive -
1st - 109lb thrust Motorguide
2nd -  Fury prop
3rd - Case of oil
We can do what we want with it if we win.  Sell, raffle, auction...
