Are you as excited as I am!!! With the 2011 Faith Angler Network Championship this Friday and Saturday, we are ready to get the event started?

FAN official lodging and host of the 2011 Championship will be Elm Creek Village in Voss TX.

30 teams will ascend on Jerry’s place at Elm Creek Village this week to test their skills and a chance to win the $10,000 top prize on this  19,149 acres reservoir  on the Colorado and Concho Rivers in Concho, Coleman, and Runnels counties, 55 miles east of San Angelo. This lake is known for producing many largemouth bass in the 10 plus pound range, we expect to see a few of those brought to the scales.

Official Practice will begin at safelight on October 26th. Teams are permitted to practice in two boats during official practice. All teams are required to attend the meeting to be held the evening prior to the first day of competition. (At least one team member must be in attendance prior to the beginning of the inspirational message, and remain until the end of the meeting). Those not in attendances at the meeting will be declared ineligible to compete.

The pre-tournament meeting will be held at the meeting facility at Elm Creek Village, registration will begin at 6PM. Your FAN Staff will be grilling hamburgers with all the fixin’s.
