TBF Dream Team Rally Set for Ohio River, August 18


The Bass Federation’s brand new Dream Team Rally tournament trail is excited to announce the West Virginia Bass Federation is scheduled to host its first TBF Dream Team Rally event.  The event is scheduled for August 18, 2012 on the Ohio River, at Wheeling Island Ramp in Wheeling, W.Va.  The West Virginia Bass Federation Dream Team Event is open to ALL TBF members, and non-TBF members wanting to join.    Interested teams can go online at bassfederation.com; Dream Team; to enter, the tourney # is 1031.  ALL interested TBF clubs and state federations can go online and register to host their own event today!

“The West Virginia Bass Federation is excited to host a TBF sanctioned Dream Team event, bringing grassroots fishing back to West Virginia,” West Virginia Bass Federation President, John Burdette, said.  “Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome.  Each boat fishes as a team for the same prize, a coveted spot in the 2013 TBF Dream Team National Championship.”

“Think about it, even if there are 50 or 75 Dream Team Rallies in the US this year when it comes championship time those 50 or 75 qualified teams not only get a “paid” vacation but also get to compete for a new Ranger boat plus a national pile of cash and other prizes!”  TBF President, Robert Cartlidge, said.  “The odds don’t get much better than that! The more Dream Team events held the bigger the payout, and it all goes back to the members!”

TBF Dream Team Rallies are designed to fill a void not only in the federation, but also the fishing industry to give anglers exactly what they’ve been craving.  Fish no-hassle events close to home; fish with who you want, when you want, where you want.  All Dream Team Rally event payouts and advancements are based on 25 boats.  For every 25th team, one team advances with paid entry fees to the 2013 Dream Team National Championship Rally, with travel, hotel and boat gas stipends and the chance to win big time “dream” prizes and payouts at a “dream” vacation event.  Payouts will be big and deep to the field, and the national team champions will walk away with a Ranger Boat Dream Rig!  Register to host an event anywhere in the US anytime in 2012, or sign up to compete in any Dream Team Rally, or both!  There’s no limit on how many Dream Team Rallies members can host or fish; so get started now!
