Centennial Bass Club hosts a series of mini team tournaments with average participation being 8 to 10 boaters and about 6 to 8 non boaters for a total of 14 to 18 participants. We generally get our boats inspected prior to meeting to collect a small entry fee (which is paid out 100% to the winners of the tournament) and draw for starting position. We launch from the south bay boat ramp about 5pm and fish until dark (usually about 9pm). We are a black bass fishing organization who practice catch and release of all fish. Fish will be measured and immediately released back to the water. The only resources we utilize are about 8 to 10 parking spaces for our boat trailers during the tournament, about 15 minutes at the boat ramp to launch and retrieve our boats, and the inspectors for inspection of our vessels prior to launch and upon leaving the water. We practice all safe boating requirements including every participant wearing a PFD and boat operators having a functioning kill switch attached to their person during operation. We are insured through B.A.S.S. with our liability limits meeting or exceeding county requirements. A Certificate of insurance will be provided as soon as it is obtained from B.A.S.S. well before the commencement of our first tournament. The date of our tournament is July 15. Thanks for your consideration
