The 2010 Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship won’t be a go unless more directors are brought on board.
“Everything’s on hold at this point,” chairman Tom Fry said this morning.
“The remaining board members voted unanimously [last night] that if these positions don’t get filled, we will not go forward with the 2010 tournament,” he added.
The FFCBC board is looking to fill the four vacant positions of co-chairperson, computer systems, daytime events, and site and facilities.
“We did have some filled last night, and we do have two new people on board, but we’re still sitting with four empty positions and two positions that are up in the air because of the status of the person that said they’d take them on,” Fry noted.
“He doesn’t know at this point if he will actually be here.”
The bass committee is hoping to fill the remaining positions by the time of its next meeting Oct. 20 in order to proceed with organizing the annual July event.
“If at that meeting we have the positions filled, we’ll move ahead and all of the information will go out to the anglers,” Fry said.
“But we won’t be sending anything out until at such time that we have those positions filled,” he warned.
The committee also voted
unanimously last night to move the tournament, if it goes ahead, from its current venue at the Sorting Gap to the Memorial Sports Centre.
“There’s close to a $30,000 saving in terms of set-up in going to the arena,” Fry explained. “We can still do the final boat parade through there.
“We’ve looked at the logistics of that and we think we can make it work,” he added.
Anyone interested in applying for one of the vacant board positions is asked to call Fry at 274-3584.
