American Bass Anglers(ABA) would like to personally invite you and your team to participate in any of the 2009 American Bass Anglers Barbeque Cook-Offs Sponsored by Early Times Whisky. There are 5 fun events for 2009 that will be held in July, Sept and Nov.

ABA is operating the Cook-Offs in conjunction with Bassmaster Weekend Series Bass tournaments that we operate. Each location selected is on the lake and each at beautiful locations for a BBQ cook-off and are in high traffic areas. We believe is offers a lot to the local communities a BBQ cook-off, an outdoor show and the Bassmaster Weekend Series Bass tournament. This will also provide the opportunity for much more exposure for you Professional BBQ Professionals.

These events are set up for both Pro Teams and Backyard Teams and will have a 100% payback of all entry fees. These events will be a lot of fun but at the same time will have the highest standards for BBQ judging and competition.
