Staff recommends approval of an agreement with BASS LLC to host the BASS Wildcard Tournament November 16 – 18, 2006.
Historically, the Chamber of Commerce has hosted the fishing tournaments through BASS, Crappie Masters, and Crappie USA. However, in 2006 the Chamber made a decision not to host the tournaments. Consequently, the City of Leesburg has assumed this role through the Parks & Recreation Department because of the economic impact and National exposure they bring to the area.
The 2006 BASS Wildcard Tournament, November 16 – 18, 2006 had previously been contracted with the Chamber. This contract has been revised naming the City of Leesburg as the host for the tournament.
1. Approve the resolution authorizing an agreement with BASS LLC or;
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The City’s portion of the fee will not exceed $10,000. Additional support services will not exceed $5,000 and include City Staff, meals, telephone lines, portable bathrooms and security.
