Return to Tournaments

Tournament Director’s Corner

Welcome To The Tournament Director’s Corner!


PA Members,

Welcome to the 2018 Tournament Season. 
I would first like to welcome our returning members and extend a special welcome to all of our new members who join the PA Bass Federation for the upcoming year. 
As we saw in the 2017 season, we continued to improve our events and provide our members with a tournament atmosphere as close to the National and Pro Events.  Through our Board of Directors, State Officers and especially through our State Sponsors, we have been able to provide great give-a-ways at each event and continue to modernize our event, like our new Leader Board.
As we prepare for the upcoming season, please be sure to check our tournament calendar, our home page and ESPECIALLY our message board as this is where a majority of information will be posted.
On behalf of my tournament staff (Steve Koch, Mike Sabbi, Chris Wilson and Mike Smith), enjoy the holidays with your families and I look forward to seeing all of you again in the coming months…………March is just around the corner.
Fred Lewis, State Tournament Director and Steve Koch, Assistant Tournament Director
