    Best Six

    The ALBC Best Six tournament is approaching and will be here soon. Clubs should make their plans to attend and enjoy a great weekend of fishing, fun and fellowship on April 29, 30 & May 1. This will be the 40th Championship of the ALBC membership tournament. Plans are coming together to have a great event. The drawing of the raffle boats will take place on Sunday of the event. There will be t-shirts, caps and visors for sale at the event.

    Academy

    The ALBC has entered into a partnership with Academy Sports & Outdoors. The partnership is mainly focused around the youth tournaments the ALBC conducts in each district of the association. Academy has donated heavily in that area and also to the operation of the association's tournaments. We look forward to a long relationship with Academy. We all need to support their organization in return for all they are doing for the ALBC.

    TOC

    The Tournament of Champions (TOC) will be held out of Alexandria on the Red River on June 25 & 26. Pools 2, 3 & 4 will be allowed to be fished and participants will be allowed to trailer to the different pools. The ALBC is receiving assistance from the city and the Red River Waterway Commission. Remember to fish your District Top 25 tournaments to qualify for this event. The Calendar of Events page on the web site(basslore.com) has the dates of each district Top 25 or contact your District Director.

    Youth Fishing Events

    All the districts have scheduled their youth fishing tournaments and they are posted on the web site(basslore.com). Please take a kid fishing or introduce a kid to the sport of fishing. The youth are the future of our precious resource and activity. Academy is strongly supporting the ALBC with these events and helping with donations for all the events. Please contact your District Director to see what assistance he could use to help with the youth tournament events in his and your areas. This is a great cause.

    Raffle Boats

    The raffle boat sales are going good. It has been great to be associated with Nitro this year and they have been a good partner. The ALBC was fortunate to be Nitro. Nitro allowed the ALBC to display one of the raffle boats in the Nitro booth at the Bass Master's Classic and sell raffle tickets. This was great help to the association. Remember to purchase your raffle ticket in order to have a chance to win a fully rigged Nitro boat. They will displayed at the Best Six tournament.

    LSUA/ALBC

    The ALBC will continue to support and work with LSUA in putting on the LSUA/ALBC Scholarship Foundation Bass Tournament. This is a great event that supplies scholarship funds to a deserving student either in Criminal Justice or Biology field that would go toward wildlife and fisheries. This tournament is open to everyone not just ALBC members. Plan to support and attend a good cause. Check the web site (basslore.com) for dates and information.

    Giordano Benefit Tournament

The family supports the ALBC and the event is in honor of a lost son, brother, husband and friend. This tournament is also an open tournament and not just to the members of the ALBC.
