Several of you are now working on updating your membership Rosters to send in to the KBF & TBF.
This is a great time for all Club Admins to update the phone numbers and email addresses for members of your club.
We have spent the past couple days reviewing the membership list for all KBF Clubs and sadly we must report to each Club in the State that numerous members have incorrect or NONE at ALL Cell Phone numbers and EMAIL ADDRESSES.
Your Club members are missing out on receiving valuable information simply because we do not have correct information. Please review your membership list and enter the correct information.
PS: in just a few weeks, KBF will be sending 2 Boaters & 2 Co Anglers to the Federation National Championship. Of the 4 we have had numerous calls wanting to know when TBF will be sending out the Packets for this event. Again SAD to say, of the 4 Contenders representing KY, only 1 is a MEMBER IN GOOD STANDING with his/her Membership. How would we feel if TBF held back the Packets until Members were Paid up on their part?

Best Screens Available & High-Performance Processor with Power to Spare
The fish are ready. Are you?
Rig your boat with HDS Carbon and you will be ready — Ready for Battle.
Today, Lowrance® launched HDS Carbon, a new high-performance addition to the HDS Series of fishfinder/chartplotters.
HDS Carbon — which features 12-, 9- and 7-inch models — includes a new high-performance, dual-core processor, multi-touch SolarMAX™ HD display, Dual Channel CHIRP and Network Dual Sounder sonar technology.
HDS Carbon takes processing power to new heights with a dual core processor that allows anglers to switch between applications and simultaneously view independent sonar feeds with ease — smoothly driving high-tech Lowrance technology like StructureScan® 3D with SideScan and DownScan Imaging™, StructureMap™, Broadband Radar™, SiriusXM® Weather Chart Overlay™ and more.
