|The Public Safety Bass Club has disbanded as of December 2009.|
The Public Safety Bass Club was chartered on January 1, 1995. There were nine charter members. Two are still members to date.
The club was founded on the principle of promoting bass fishing as a major sport as well as for recreation; to encourage our youth to participate in this great sport of fishing; and to improve our skills through fellowship and exchange of bass catching techniques and ideas.
Although there were many clubs in this area, most were interested in only winning tournaments. There was enough interest to look at forming a club in which the members wanted to have fun, enjoy the sport, and keep the costs low. We achieved that in the Public Safety Bass Club. We have 100 percent participation in our youth activities and other club functions. We sponsor a charity event in honor of a Deputy Sheriff who was killed in the line of duty, in which proceeds from the tournament go to the Kids Rodeo.
The club goals are to increase participation by area youths in our activities, conservation, and to sponsor charitable functions so that the club will be recognized for having a positive influence on the community.
