Spring Lake bass sign-up Sunday

March 13, 2009 at 08:46 AM

First of all, my apologies to Scott Montgomery and the rest of the Peoria Sportsman Club.

Why? Because we listed the wrong date in today’s paper regarding sign-ups for the Peoria Sportsman Club’s 28th annual Spring Lake bass tournament.

The correct sign-up date is Sunday at 9 a.m., not Saturday as I printed today. Sorry. The rest of the information was correct, including the part that said, spots fill up fast for the April 25-26 tournament.

For more information, call Montgomery at (309) 241-2761. Sign-ups will also be held Sunday for the Gary Lee Weber buddy bass elimination tournament later this year. The late Weber helped start the two-day April tournament that is the area’s top bragging-rights event.
