The annual Hooked On Education Bass Tournament benefits Operation Round Up. Through this event, anglers compete for a prize payout while helping WRVEC give back to area students.
Our number one priority is the health and safety of our employees, members, and our communities. In accordance with government guidelines and the Army Corp of Engineers temporary change in policy, the Hooked on Education Fishing Tournament has been canceled to help further prevent the spread of COVID-19.
We will be refunding the full entry fee via mailed check to teams who have already registered. While it is unfortunate the event will not take place, we appreciate your support as we continue to encourage the pursuit of education in our area youth through the Operation Round Up Program.
