the fine print …
Before becoming a member, anglers must join the North American organization BASS.
All members must have a valid Sport fishing licence.
Info on the Fees:
Out of the regular membership fee, the club remits for each member $15 to the OBN (Ontario Bass Nation) and $32USD to BASS (North America). The balance goes to the club for operating costs such as bank fees, postage, Christmas dinner and other operating costs. The fees out of the membership that the club remits make members a part of BASS Nation and give them the opportunity to fish as part of the club plus the qualifier tournament and potentially join team Ontario and the divisional tournaments in the USA.
In order to encourage commitment and ensure insurance coverage there is an early payment discount (save $15 off $80 annual fee) if dues are paid prior to or at the January meeting.
Associate members must belong to another Ontario Bass Nation club. This club fee is much lower because the OBN and BASS fees are paid out of the other clubs membership dues.
