Federation2012September 20th Calcium NY….  NY The Bass Federation (TBF) is proud to announce the 2014 tournament schedule.  Our goal is to provide exciting participation opportunities for anglers at all levels structured under a draw format where boaters are randomly paired with non-boater (co-anglers) for an eight hour tournament day.  Each angler competes only in their respective category with boater entry fees of $90 and the co-angler fees are $50 with 80% of all entry fees paid back to the field. NYTBF membership is required for participation unless otherwise stated. For complete details to go www.nytbf.com
