Card sets date for 2nd college/H.S. event

The 2nd annual Brandon Card College & High School Bass Open will take place on Norris Lake, 50 miles north of Knoxville, Tenn., on Dec. 2. The event has a unique format, as it will be two tournaments in one – college and high school anglers compete only against other teams in their own division.

The two divisions will be competing for separate trophies, payouts, and prizes. The 1st-place collegiate team will win $2,500 and the top high school team will walk away with $1,500. Card said the goal is to attract a field of more than 100 boats.

“Last year was a huge success for the first year,” he said. “We had a great turnout and we were able to hook the anglers up. My primary goal for the event was to give as much back to the college and high school anglers as we could. I think we achieved that goal by giving out over $15,000 in cash and prizes.

Presenting sponsors of the event are Campbell County Chamber of Commerce and Suzuki Marine. Associate sponsors include Yo-Zuri, Fishsens Technology, Bass Cat Boats, Abu Garcia, Lowrance, Empire Covers, Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits, Bob’s Machine Shop, Ab Card Construction, Twin Cove Marine, Coal Creek Smokehouse BBQ, Bass Pro Shops, Fish Head,and Dixie Roofing.
