You got it.......
Yeah, just looking ahead a little. As long as someone else brought up the subject of Tupper, I thought maybe that someone out there knows something about the place.
I have not come to a definite conclusion on "what to do" next season. But, a couple things stick in my mind:
After having made it to the BASS Eastern Divisionals, this year, and coming to within 1 1/2 lbs. of advancing to the National Championship, I know I want to get there again, some day.
The BFL was nice, but I do have some misgivings about it. With no off-limits period at all, I find it difficult to be able to compete with those guys that seem to have unlimited time and finances. I can really, fully appreciate the NYSBCF off-limits policy. For exactly that reason, I will always defend it. The federation trail is still more designed for the weekend "Joe", like me. And, I guess the bottom line is that I still like the NYSBCF trail/people. Doing both trails is probably a bit much. You know me, I'm as die-hard as they come, but I really couldn't concentrate on anything, by taking on too much.
I'd like to also see what the new Grassroots trail may have to offer. I've heard no more about it, other than it's a definite for 2004. I'd also like to look at the Northern Opens. I'm leaving all my options open, for now.
I'll just have to see what next year brings.
Right now, I just want to go out and have fun with my friends and club members, and fight with those ill-tempered smallmouth, wherever I can find them.
C'ya on the water,
