With so many changes and unknowns this year we are Blessed to be able to hold the Championship tournament on Lake Buchanan. There will be some changes and processes that we must adhere to in order to provide a safe event and be within guidelines of Local and State ordinances. This also will ensure the safety of our students, captains, and FAN Staff in addition to protecting all of our families.

One of the biggest changes is in our morning check-in and launch procedure. Trailering will be allowed and highly suggested (We probably need to explain what this means) ex: This means you are free to launch at the ramp of your choice. There are several boat ramps available to avoid larger groups and lines at any one ramp. There will not be a physical check-in location that morning.

You may launch from your chosen ramp as early as 5AM, however you may not start fishing until FIRST CAST at 7AM We will have a prayer and National Anthem on Facebook Live prior to 7am.

Off Limits will begin September 6th 11.59PM until tournament day 5am all other FAN rules will apply.

Last cast will be 2PM and you will have 1 hour to get to the weigh in location.

Please be mindful of the time required to get boats on trailers and get to the weigh in location.

Weigh In Location will be at the Cross and Spurs Cowboy Church

100 Lillian Dean

Buchanan Dam, TX 78609

Scales will be open at noon and will close at 4PM

This will be a drive through weigh in and there will not be flights. Each team will remain with their boat as they approach the stage and a FAN Staffer will ask you to remove your fish from the live well (we will have a photo opportunity) then hand your bag to the FAN attendant for bump and weight. You will then be free to leave however we will ask the top 5 teams as we progress to stay. (two teams will be Polygraphed) We are being asked for all teams to remain in their vehicle during the weigh process and not congregate in front of the stage.

After the scales close, we will announce the top 5 teams and award Scholarship letters and prizes. If you choose to leave, we will make arrangements for you to receive your awards.

Captains drawing will be held, and we will notify the winners and make arrangements to receive your prizes
