Hello everyone,

First I hope everyones family and friends are doing ok and are healthy. I have received a email from the B.A.S.S asking everybody to postpone tournaments. We at Mass B.A.S.S nation agrees with the following and are going to be following there lead. Here is his statement

"We are in unprecedented, difficult, daily and/or hourly changing times. We are all “learning” as we go along. As you are aware, to this point, B.A.S.S. has postponed five (5) events including a College, Nation, Open and two Elites. We strongly encourage you to do the same with your Adult State Qualifying events, high school, college, junior and club events. Please keep in mind that as long as you have that B.A.S.S. Shield attached to your events, what you do on the state and club level reflects on B.A.S.S.”

Thank You
