Kerr Rescheduled Due to Unsafe Waters
Athens, AL 2/27/2019 - The Bass Pro Shops Open Series Virginia Division Kerr scheduled for Saturday 3/2/2019 has been rescheduled due to high water levels and unsafe boating conditions. The lake is currently 10 feet above Summer Pool, and not expected to recede enough prior to the event to be safe. The rain runoff has pushed out a lot of debris into the lake creating an unsafe boating environment. Angler safety is our number one priority and in the best interest of our anglers the tournament has been rescheduled to March 16, 2019. The rescheduled tournament will still launch from Nut Bush Park. Registration will be held on site at Nut Bush Park at the ABA stage trailer 4:00-6:30 with safety briefing and partner pairing at 7:00 p.m.
All anglers registered for this event will be automatically moved to the new event date. For more information on this tournament, call Rodney Michael, tournament manager, at 256-497-0967 or ABA at 256-232-0406. Online, see www.americanbassanglers.com
