2011 State Championship
« on: December 14, 2010, 02:27:47 PM »

After negotiating with several differnet areas and tourism branches the TBF of Michigan is finally ready to announce the location of the 2011 State Championship.

The State Championship will take place for the first time  on a Saturday, June 4th at Houghton Lake.  It will be put on by the Houghton Lake Visitors Bureau.  This years championship will be like no other the whole experince will be taken to new levels and it should be exciting.  

The Houghton Lake area will be rolling out the "red carpet" for us so now all we need to do is show up.  There will be more updates soon on our webpage.  Or if you have any questions I am sure they can be answered here.

Thanks
Jeff Cox

Caseville sounded intriguing but I think it's nice to not have both federations on the same body of water. Houghton Lake on June 4th will mean a ton of keepers caught. The winner will have to find several 3-pounders.

Yes it is a great choice. Nice area and a nice big lake with lots of fish. It should be a good time. I plan on being there.

This year the Bass Federation will be working with the Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute on a project to study, evaluate and develop a set of best practices for tournament anglers for preventing the spread of Invasive Species.
We are inviting members of this group to attend our TBF State Championship.
When they attend, they will be there to pass out literature on invasive species and they will  speak to our group for about 15 minutes at the banquet, friday night. The rest of their mission will be to observe the event and help us determine a set of best practices and practical solutions to help our anglers stop the spread of invasive species.

We think this will be a valuable tool for all of our state federation members and we would encourage you to take advantage of the program.

If you are not fishing the State Championship and would like to come to the banquet and hear the discussion just let me know so that I can add you to the dinner meal numbers.

Is there a hotel that most people plan on staying at?  Did the federation get any discounts?  Also what launch is it going out of?

The place I stay at up there is called The Riviera, 989-366-5122. They have quite a few rooms available. They also have a 2.5 acre locked lot for the boats. The only issue I'm working on with them is electricity. We may have to take turns with charging. They are checking on it, and will get back with me. Its a very nice place to stay, and very resonable.

As it stands right now, they can plug in 6 boats at a time. If they get more reservations, they will supply more electricity for us.

We do have a host hotel up there also we have a host camp ground.  Both are giving nice discounts and they are sending me all the info early next week.  The Hotel is on the Lake and we will be having meetings and weigh ins on the property.  The visitor committee is working on the launch that will best serve everyones needs I understand there are two large launches it sounded to me like they will have us us the one Mid Lake all this is being sorted out at a Board Meeting that happens I believe Monday and I will have a ton of info to send out after all this happens.  Thanks for being so intrested and let everyone know about this years championship.  We would like it to be one of the biggest ever to do so we need to have around 70 boats and I do not see why we cant achieve that goal with a lot of help from all!!!

Thanks
Jeff Cox

Cool Jeff.  Thanks for the information.  See if you can get the camp ground to o.k. single night stays.  Many do not allow single night stays on weekends.

Is the date for the championship June 4th or 11th? I Was looking on the Bass Boys home page and it said the 11th. I just want to make sure on the date before I put in for vacation time at work. Also, what's the name of the host camp ground?

That's my fault. Typo or something. I had it right on the state championship page and fixed the 'home' page - www.greatlakesbass.com/bassboys/

TJ
Sorry it has taken the host community a little longer to put together all the discounts and stuff.  They are working on it and we will have it all to release very soon.  I promise.....As soon as I have it all ready I will send many emails out and I will also ask Dan to post it on here the proper way.

Thanks for the extra time and I hope you and everyone unederstands
