NNY Junior Bassmasters Enjoy Fine Season Finale
The Northern New York Junior Bassmasters season ended on Sunday with a tournament out of Ogdensburg on the St. Lawrence River.
A rain storm couldn't dampen the experience of the finale which matched the first tournament of the 2020 season as the anglers, boaters and volunteers enjoyed some great catches and sportsmanship while strictly following the state guidelines to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The club, directed by Arlene Kiah and Jim Moore, will do the same thing on Sunday holding a drive-in banquet at Hosmer's Marina from 6-7:30 p.m. where the season awards will be presented.
Thanks for a great year. Don’t forget the masks," said Arlene Kiah.
"I want to thank all the adult boaters, the club's sponsors and the community for their support.
