Staff recommends approval of an agreement with Crappie Masters Inc. to host the Crappie Masters State Tournament January 26 – 27, 2007.
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 2007 Crappie Masters State Tournament, January 26 – 27, 2007 is the first fishing tournament to be hosted by the City of Leesburg in 2007.
1. Approve the resolution authorizing an agreement with Crappie Masters Inc. or;
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The City’s portion of the fee will not exceed $5,000. Additional support services will not exceed $2,000 and include City Staff, meals, telephone lines, portable bathrooms and security.
