I like this approach a lot, Robert. Makes a lot of sense. You don't want to create any unnecessary obstacles.

Not really. We try not to dictate to the individual club how they should run their club. You should be able to look at our Rules though and pick rules out of them that may apply to your club. If you have further questions feel free to email me at

Besides state laws, does TABC have tournament rules that are recommended for individual associated clubs ?

If so please provide a link.
General Discussion / Sunrise Beach VFD Tournament on LBJ
« Last post by Robert Rose on March 27, 2017, 01:42:58 PM »
Sunrise Beach VFD approached me a while back about information on holding a bass tournament on LBJ as a fund raiser for their fire department. After talking to them and giving them some info on what they needed to do I volunteered to use the TABC scales and be their weigh master for the tournament. I gave them a sample of rules and they took it from there and advertised their tournament. This last weekend was the tournament and they did an excellent job of organizing it. They had a perch jerk and over 100 kids showed up for it and everyone seemed to be having a lot of fun. They also had TP&WD bring out their trailer with the Hall of Shame and 2 Game Warden to support it and talk to the people about how important it is to abide by the states hunting and fishing laws. The tournament only drew 23 teams but was a good start and I suspect that next year they will draw more teams. The big bag weighed in at 22+ lbs and had a Big Bass of over 7 lbs. I plan to assist them again next year if they need me and they have decided to do a fall tournament because they have so many activities in the spring that it makes it difficult on their sonsors. I want to Thank John Morgan for his help with this event. I could not have done it with out his help. Everyone keep an eye out for this tournament next October and come out and participate for a good cause. Don't forget you never think about a fireman unless you need one and this is an all volunteer operation.

Thanks Robert we rented one. It was a mess when we moved in and had to clean it before we dared to bring our stuff in, but it worked out good for our group and was cheaper than a motel. When will the final results be posted?

Annual Tournament / Re: State Tournament results coming soon

Ok, you would know it being my first year as President that we would have some issues with the tournament results. Some how when they printed the results and gave me a copy to announce the winners the copy that I received some way had dropped one of the top 6 teams. Well it took a little time but we got that resolved at the convention center and got most of the trophies where they belonged. Then I received an email yesterday that another clubs weights were wrong and after some checking found that for some reason the program did not add Sunday's weight to Saturday's weight so it only showed Saturday as their total weight. Well, I got that changed and sent the club a new results file and asked Perry to correct the web page. If anybody finds any other errors please let me know and I will research and correct it as needed.
On a happier note I want to thank Zapata Marine for a job well done. On Saturday we had a boat in one team tear up his lower unit. He carried the boat to Zapata Marine for repair and they had him back on the water Sunday morning. This business went above and beyond for our anglers so if you are there and need work support this business.
