FAQ 3: Registration Dinner Move to Bass Pro Shops

Why did you move the Registration Dinner from the Trademart to Bass Pro Shops, Pearl, MS ?

ANSWER: Several reasons, some based upon past experience, some based upon input from our Angler Survey last summer:

1) Many folks expressed decreasing comfort relative to safety at night in the Trademart/Fairgrounds parking lots
2) The costs for renting the Trademart facilities have increased
3) Attendance and interest during the evening program have decreased
4) The need to “refresh” the Registration event was expressed by many
5) Bass Pro Shops is hosting the event free of charge
6) We can provide a much more family friendly and informal environment at Bass Pro Shops
7) It’s a convenient location for everyone
8) Most everyone makes a stop by Bass Pro Shops right before the tournament anyway!
