It's that time of year again. Though we have had some really good success with online pre-registration, we are in need of Boaters for this years PVA Tournament. You can still register online at http://www.pvabasstour.com. Check-in Registration and partner pairings will be on Friday, June 2 beginning at 4:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the American Legion in Laplata, MD.

This year will mark the 23nd Anniversary of the partnership between the Maryland B.A.S.S. Nation and the Paralyzed Veterans of America to support and sponsor this event. On Saturday June 3 and Sunday June 4, 2017, we will also be hosting wounded soldiers from the Traumatic Brain Disorder Unit that will be fising in the bank division. These men and women have put it all on the line for us and have had life altering injuries and will need assistance from the bank on Saturday. Even if you don't have a boat we will need experienced fishermen to help these veterans out in their attemps to land the big ones from the bank. Please email me at mdbfupdate2002@msn.com if you can help out.

We will have newly injured American soldiers attending this event in need of boaters. In addition to some injured soldiers that had previously fished this wonderful event returning to fish with us again. Please do it now ! Sign up today to help.

The tournament will be held at Smallwood State Park on Saturday and Sunday June 3 and June 4, 2017. The park will open at 4:00 a.m.

This project is the largest project that the Maryland B.A.S.S. Federation Nation undertakes each year. Please come out and support the Federation in it's endeavor to honor the wounded soldiers with a weekend of relaxation and fun as well as help out PVA tournament trail anglers that have a significant disability.

In addition to boaters we NEED some of our Federation Members that can back boats and trailers in and out of the water. We'd love it if you could be there both Saturday and Sunday morning and afternoon but even if you can only volunteer to be there on one morning or afternoon that would be a huge relief.

Please call me if you have any questions or need help with registration at:
