JOIN, FISH & WIN! – TEAM INVITATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS
Our team invitational will be held at the conclusion of the 2017 team season. Locations for the team invitational will include, Table Rock, Truman, Lake of the Ozarks, Bull Shoals, or Stockton.
2017’s Invitational will be held on Table Rock Lake.
We have chosen these lakes for their close driving proximity. At JOE BASS we realize the expense of traveling to a location completely neutral to all of our divisions. So it is our decision that it would be beneficial to all of our anglers to keep it close resulting in the possibility of a team invitational on a divisional lake.
Each team invitational will have an $200.00 entry fee. The payback will be 80%. We will payback 1 for each 5 entered maximum 25 places. Qualifying will be determined through Division competition. Numerous sponsor products will be awarded. Division Champions will be recognized and rewarded for their accomplishment.
