NEWSLETTER 9/8/2017 - SC B.A.S.S. NATION YOUTH DIRECTOR
From the desk of Randy Vaughn,
South Carolina B.A.S.S. Nation Youth Director.
It is amazing that we are already putting together plans for another great year of High School and Jr. B.A.S.S. fishing. It was only about eight weeks ago that the B.A.S.S. Nation High School and Jr. Nationals were held. We sent ten teams total and brought home first place in the High School division, with several of our talented Junior and High School teams placing in the Nation’s top ten. Congratulations again to anglers J.R. Floyd and James Gibbons, with Captain Tommy Floyd and South Florence High School coach Jeremy Trussell, for representing our state so well. Thanks to a lot of great support, our state’s youth program is considered by some as one of the premier programs in the country. Each year the membership has grown and this year will be no different as we hold tournaments from the mountains to the sea; from the pristine crystal clear water of our upstate lakes, to the brackish and sometimes tricky tidal fishing of our coastal rivers. In short, we have it all. This year we offer the Palmetto Boat Center (PBC) High School trail predominately fishing the upstate; the newly formed Lower State Fishing Trail, fishing from the midlands of South Carolina to the Santee River system. Also, if your kids are interested in salt water fishing then there’s the SALT trail. Each trail agenda is set up by their own exclusive board of directors and I am proud to say that the PBC and the newly formed LSBT are B.A.S.S Nation sanctioned and its anglers, being members of the B.A.S.S. Nation, will be eligible to attend/compete in this year’s South Carolina B.A.S.S. Nation High School and Jr. State championships. The top two placing teams will then be eligible to advance to the BASS Nationals to be held in late summer 2018 on a lake yet to be determined.
To see how to start a new High School or Jr. team, please go online at www.Bassmaster.com. Next click on Nation and scroll down to High school or Jr., to find all of the information there. If you do not see what you are looking for please email me at email@example.com.
The available trails are:
Palmetto Boat Center High School trail at http://www.palmettoboatcenter.com/read-more-about-tournaments
Lower State High School Trail at http://www.sctournamenttrail.com or contract trail director Tony Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Salt Trail information can be found by contacting Rayburn Polson at RPoston@horrycountyschools.net. NOTE: spots for this trail are limited and this trail is NOT BASS sanctioned to qualify for the BASS Nationals championship.
Each trail has their different rules and guidelines, associated participation fees, and tournament fees. Please see the individual trails for details.
The South Carolina B.A.S.S. Federation Nation has never in the past charged a fee for belonging to and aligning your individual school team/members to be a member of the S.C. Bassmaster Federation Nation. However, the board of directors have instructed me that this year there will need to be a charge for affiliating with the State as is stated clearly in the B.A.S.S. Nation Club Rules and guidelines. I can assure you that we have exhausted all means possible (and will continue) to keep cost to a minimum. The fees for each individual student is $20.00 for the year, due upon entering your newly updated roster into BASS High School or Junior Bass in September. To make things easier, here is a breakdown of what is required for each student:
BASS High School Nation Dues
South Carolina BASS Federation Nation Dues
High School Angler
(BASS High School Nation)
Middle School Angler
To join BASS (or Bassmaster) or renew your current membership, you can pay $10.00 online or send check to Bassmaster, Inc. This $10.00 is all the Junior Bassmaster will need to pay except for the state dues.
To join the BASS High School Nation or renew your current membership, you can pay $10.00 online or send check to Bassmaster, Inc. A Junior Bassmaster will not need to pay these dues.
To join the South Carolina BASS Nation (mandatory), send $20 payment to:
411 Dark Hollow Drive
Woodruff S.C. 29388
*Make check payable to S.C. B.A.S.S. Federation
Total cost is $40.00 for High School angler and $30.00 for Jr. Angler to be a member in good standings. After we have received the $20.00 per angler, I will go online and make sure you are upgraded to be a member in good standing with the S.C. BASS Nation.
The SC BASS Nation High School State Championship will be held again on Lake Murray April 7th 2018, so please put that date on your fishing calendar. Entry this year will be $20.00 per team of 2 anglers. The Junior State championship is yet to be announced but there will be a State championship held for these kids as well. The cut off for adding a team to the S.C. BASS Nation State Championship will be March 24th 2018.
If you and your school are currently enrolled in the 2016-17 roster, your membership is good until December 31, 2017. If you are new to the program and will be fishing one of the trails, you must be in good standing with BASS and listed on the team’s roster for your points to count in team trail standings for advancement to the B.A.S.S. High School or Junior Nationals.
Please send all questions to me and I will answer you as I receive them. More info about this will be coming the first of January.
S.C. B.A.S.S. Nation Youth Director
SC Lower State Tournament Trail, in partnership with B.A.S.S. , B.A.S.S. Nation & TBF, promotes an environmentally-conscience educational program for freshwater bass fishing to Middle & High School Students on how to respect and conserve our God-given habitat using everyday math, science and conservation studies.
The program strives to teach kids and families the thrill of fishing, the importance of conservation and the responsibility we all have to protect what God has so graciously given us.
Members have the opportunity to enjoy camaraderie & positive sportsmanship while competing at a club, state and divisional level, ultimately qualifying them for the World & National Championship Tournament.
