RESULTS FROM THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP HELD SEPTEMBER 4th 2016

We had a great turn out at Cabela’s in Hamburg Pa . A total of 37 kids from throughout the state along with parents, friends and hundreds of onlookers to cheer them on. These kids participated in local contests held through out the state during the year. Weather was great and the wind died down enough so it did not effect the contest but enough to keep us cool. The kids participated in two age groups 7-11 and 12-15.  The following are the names of the winners of their age group along with second and third place in their age group.

7 to 11 AGE GROUP

The Great American Outdoor Show held in Harrisburg Pa which ran from February 6th to the 14th was the home of 4 days of REEL KIDS CASTING CONTEST’S. on each weekend of the show Pa Bass  held FREE casting contests. The total number of kids who participated was 560. Every child who participated received a free rod and reel combo plus other prizes. Over 10,000 people come through the doors on a daily basis of the show so a lot of people get to see what TBF and PA BASS do to give back to the community. We want to thank Barry Potteiger and his wife Judy for help with this contest and our thanks goes out to them and the volunteers who helped out over the 4 days . JOB WELL DONE.

THANK YOU
