Carlton C. Wolfinger Memorial Fall Buddy Tournament

This year's Fall Buddy Tournament hosted by Berks Bassmasters will be a Memorial Tournament. The event will be in memory of long time Berks Bassmasters' member Carl Wolfinger who recently passed in May. Carl was a lifetime member of Berks Bassmasters with a reputation of not only being a great angler but also an amazing guy to be around. We look forward to seeing all of our fellow anglers October 17th to show just how much Carl was loved and respected by the fishing community. All club proceeds will be donated in Carl's name to Pancreatic Cancer Research.

From PA Bass Tournament Restrictions update

West Virginia, New York and Maryland are open for tournaments under SPECIFIC guidelines from those states. PA Bass Federation Clubs and Districts who hold approved permits for tournaments are able to conduct those events as long as they abide by agency specific guidelines for those events.

Any club or District meetings are to be conducted under the current restrictions in place for the county they are held in at the time of the meeting. Under NO circumstances will meetings or events be held in any county with a Red Designation.

From PA Bass Tournament Restrictions

As you know, the Governor of PA has extended the stay at home order until April 30th. What you may not know is that the Governor of VA has extended their order until June 10th and the Governor of MD has issued a stay at home order effective today (Monday March 30th) as of 8:00pm to remain in effect until the state of emergency is over. Notice there is no end date to his order. These are not "social distancing" orders, they are STAY AT HOME orders. I understand that these orders allow for outdoor activities and further delineate the social distancing requirement as well as no groups larger than 10. This is not to allow ANY event no matter how you try to structure it.

Therefore, NO Club that is part of The Pennsylvania Bass Federation, Inc. will conduct any tournament, event, meeting (unless via electronic means) or any other activity until further notice. If you have any events scheduled between now and May 30
th, I would advise that you make alternate plans.

Campaign to Help Kaercher Creek Park

Tim Mazaika of Hamburg, PA has been a 1-man show trying to keep Kaercher Creek Park accessible to those wishing to enjoy the fishing area. The county of Berks abandoned the area several years ago and in 2014 he took it upon himself to mow grass to keep the area open to anyone who enjoyed fishing at Kaercher it a lone fisherman, family or a father or mother teaching their son or daughter the excitement of fishing for the first time.

To continued his mission to help 'Kaercher' remain accessible to those wishing to enjoy the fishing area he needs some financial and volunteer support.

Please check out his GoFundMe site at the link below for more information and to help keep this area safe and accessible for everyone to enjoy.
