Today at 08:23:59    

I was just wondering who from BR is planning to attend.  If anybody wants to meet up for dinner one night I'm in.

I'm planning on staying Fri., Sat., and Sun. I'd like to drag the boat over one day and watch the action in person. Hey maybe I could get Chad to hold up a BassResource.com sign in the background while they are filming ;D .

I would love to go.  I have never been to one...not even when it was up here on Lake Michigan.  I had to work and could not get the time off.

I have seen a Super Bowl, Rose Bowl, Baseball playoffs, and NBA playoffs, but never a Classic...... :'( :-/

Squid, go!

It is unbelievable.

I went to the one in Pittsburgh and had a super time.

You get to meet the pros; see new products; see old products; speak with the manufacturers reps and company people; get lots of freebies; and touch and feel everything.

You can ask any questions and someone there will have an answer or suggestion on any fishing and boating related topic.

Just go to the first one you can make and it will better than any sporting event you ever attended.

Wish I could go, but business responsibilities do call this time of the year.   :)

Friday is cool because you'll see all the qualifiers at the launch and weigh in.  Saturday or Sunday is good since the pros that don't make the cut will be around the expo.  Sunday is cool to see the champion crowned.

not enough vacation time or cash to do all the things I want.  It was either Kentucky or the classic, a no brainer.  I want to fish with the real pro's!!

Kentucky, here we come!!!

I feel your pain brother.  We're having Chad's 15th b-day at the Classic and spending all weekend.  A week later I'm taking the family to Maui for a week for the wife's big 5-OHHHHHH.  Spring break is two weeks after that and I'd like to do something with Chad while he's off.  Maybe go to visit his big brother in CO for some snow fun???  Then a few weeks later is the BR Roadtrip.   Of course there's the club and trail T's as well as some Jr. stuff Chad wants to do.  It's going to be tough but I think I can get it all done.  I hope to see you in KY!

The highlight of the classic for me is the chance to meet the members. I love it. Glenn and I will be at the Expo each day working the booths. If you see two guys wearing tan BassResource shirts come up and say hi. We will also try to have another dinner planned for Friday or Saturday night at a nearby steakhouse so we can all meet up and chew the fat.

Holy crap, I didn't even think about that. I can suck heads with the best of them. One of my best friends in the Army was a Coonass. He taught me right. Your on man.

Glenn, Sorry. No steak this year.  We're eatin Mud Bugs.

L-train and I will be there Saturday and Sunday. It will be our first one so we are pumped. For those who have been before; Is it worth bringing your boat? We would like to see some on the water action but didnt know if it was worth the effort.

Being that they are fishing the Red River I would think that it will be nothing but LONG runs. If you are up to that then I say do it. It's fun to follow the pros around and try to see what they are doing. I enjoy the expo more because I get to meet the pros and legends of bass fishing.

Since it's not too far from home for me I thought I'd bring the boat and chase the pro's but have now dropped the idea.  Long runs on unfamiliar water and lots of locks would be the standard I think.  Not many places I'd feel safe leaving the boat at over night or during the expo.

Yes!!!  Treat it like a trip to a casino.  Only take what cash you're willing to leave behind.  Lots of buy two get one free from the mfg's booth kind of deals.  Tackle Warehouse got a bunch of my $$$ last year.  If you wear Costa Del Mars, bring them along incase they have the wheel spin thingy set up.  Last year my boy won a free pair.  Also bring a camera and a sharpie.  There will be folks there that you'd like a picture with and an autograph from.
