Our Bass Club is continuing our Sponsorship and fund raising drive for the
Several types of Fund raisers are planned for the year.
The Michigan Bass Anglers is trying to teach
our youth members that they need to be responsible for their actions. In
doing so, we ask that they help kick in towards each fishing tournament we put
on for them. We are trying to keep the cost to our boaters as affordable
as possible so that they can continue to help out. As most everyone knows, bass fishing is not cheap anymore.

offering sponsorship ads to sponsors as well as doing other fund raisers through the Adult
club and Junior members. Each ad or sponsorship will be placed on our web

offering to place patches or emblems on our apparel and tournament shirts, that
will be worn during our tournaments and at other events all season, as well

Other Fund Raising efforts include:
- Bottle and Can Collection
Drive. Our Junior Anglers
will be going out, distributing flyers in selected neighborhoods and returning
on a designated date collecting the bottles and cans. If you are
interested, and you receive one of our flyers, we hope you contribute towards
our efforts. Gather up your loose bottles and cans and set them by your
door, we will stop back around and pick them up on the date on the flyer.
If you want to help us out and gather up your empties, get with
us to see if we can work out having someone stop by and get
them, or you can do a mini bottle drive and just send the
proceeds directly to us.
- Empty Ink Cartridge
Collection. We have someone who is willing to pay us
$1 for each empty ink cartridge we can collect and turn in.
If you want to collect empty ink cartridges, we make
arrangements to gather them up. We have a poster available
to print and post at your business or pass along to any of your
friends and family.
- Web Site Ad and Sponsorship
Program. We have a program we set up that will sell ad
space on our web site as well as provide sponsors the
opportunity to have the logos displayed at tournaments or on our
tournament shirts for an entire season. If

- Car Washes. The
club is planning on holding a few car washes this spring.
If you have a prime spot for such an event and would like to
host one, please get with us. We would like to hold a car wash
as soon as the weather breaks.
- Candy Sales. The
club is currently discussing have several candy sales in
the near future. Each club member will be sent out
to try to sell candy to everyone they know or to any interested
people. We hope if you run into some of our "Sales Staff"
you will buy a bar or two.
- Trout Pond and Casting Kids
Events. The Michigan Bass Nation, our parent State
BASS organization, graciously offered a couple of fund raising
ventures to our club. Our entire club worked at the
Outdoor Rama in Novi recently to raise funds by working the
Trout Pond and three casting Kids events. We want to thank
MBCF for the opportunity.
The money we raise will all be used towards various Junior Club
events this fishing season. We plan on buying trophies, fishing equipment,
shirts and caps and other fishing related items this summer. If you are
interested in some way supporting our Youth Club, you can contact our Youth
