These are the first FBN events to be impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to monitor the situation here in the State of Florida; track mandates at the State and local levels regarding public spaces and events; and take precautionary steps and advice from the CDC to ensure the safety of our members. We strongly encourage all of our clubs/members to take the same precautionary step and follow all the guidelines that will help us get through this crazy time. Please keep in mind that as long as you have that B.A.S.S. Shield attached to your events/jerseys, what you do in the public eye may reflect on your Club, the FBN and B.A.S.S.
At this time, no additional FBN events schedule to occur after April 30, 2020 have been postponed or canceled.
