DRYDEN BASS TOURNAMENT 2020 CANCELLED
The Dryden Bass Tournament regretfully announces the cancellation of the 2020 Tournament.
The committee has worked hard since the restructure in 2013 to adapt and grow the Tournament into something enjoyed by a wide array of anglers from young to old and from new to the sport to well seasoned.
We are proud of the Tournament we put on but recognize that it would never be possible without the support of our many sponsors. Although Premier Doug Ford encouraged the cancellation of all Fishing Tournaments for the year, we also recognize that it wouldn’t be socially responsible to go out and solicit sponsorship in today’s economic climate and that is ultimately why we have made this extremely hard decision.
Thank you to all who have participated, volunteered at and sponsored the Dryden Bass Tournament in the past. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2021 for the biggest and most exciting tournament yet!
The Dryden Bass Tournament Committee.
Dryden Bass Tournament
The Dryden Bass Tournament originated in 1995 and was run by D&B Sports and Marine for the years 1995, 1996 and 1997. In 1998 thru to 2008 the Tournament was run through the volunteer work of Gord Kameda, Bob Nelson, Ross Church, Bonny Smith and Dingwall Ford along with numerous other volunteers. In 2009 and 2010 Kevin Szachury of KA Sports and Tackle took over the organizing of the tournment. The tournament was no longer promoted for 2011 and 2012. In 2013 a group of local fishermen decided to resurrect the Dryden Bass Tournament. For an overnight decision to put this tournament back on mark participation topped out at 30 teams with expectations to make the future tournaments a true comeback event.
Available at Dingwall Ford, KA Sports & Tackle and QSL Tackle locally. See site for registration, tournament rules and poster. Entries can be mailed in.
