2019 Annual Military Tournament
« on: February 12, 2019, 05:40:14 PM »

Lake Eufaula - May 5-10. There are only 19 teams signed up so far and my brother and I would like to be the 20th team to sign up as we have fished this tournament together for many years now, guessing 17 years. It has become a tradition - the one tournament we fish together every year.

American Bass Anglers decided to change their participation rule and limit a military member to fishing with a dependent only. That means a military member will be allowed to fish with a young child or spouse, but will not be allowed to fish with a grown child, a parent, a sibling, etc. unless they too are military or retired military. Really a sad week for us as we feel like we've had the door slammed in our face. I've queried ABA and no one will tell me why this change is being implemented. Wish I knew more.

My brother and I will be looking at starting a new tradition over the next year and see how many friends and fellow military would like to revert back to the days when the military tournament was held on a new body of water each year. Maybe make our way to some exciting destinations like Toledo Bend or Sam Rayburn. Maybe Kentucky Lake. Maybe .... so many options. Stand by for more.

Iíd love to join you Swede!!! I know Motherwould love too as well.

UB has a rally at Guntersville every fall. Maybe we can incorporate all this. There is a following for G Ville, but maybe an early summer event that hit a small mouth lake  :-*

Iíll love rallies! Itís been hard to participate the last couple years do to health reasons and now we have our grandkids living with us.

Laurie and I are all in pending dates!

That's a bummer Swede wonder why they changed the rules? Rallies are fun. I have been to a few of them over the years but since my cancer treatments I don't travel too well anymore.  :'(
