  • The Leavenworth Bass Club held its annual award banquet for 2019 at the Leavenworth Eagles Club on January 25th, 2020. There were 29 members present, plus 41 family and sponsors including Smithville Marine, Dennis Edwards Tackle, Leavenworth Embroidery, Sunflower Healing and Recovery, Savannah Marine, and Brunson Builders.
  • Other sponsors not able to attend included Bass Pro of Olathe, Big Canon Lake Lodge, Butler Muffler & Auto Repair, and Ozawkie Boats. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors we were able to raffle off over $6,500 worth of merchandise and services at our annual awards banquet. Thanks also to Brett Ware of Tightlines UV Lure Co, Travis Perret and Bob Jorgensen for their donations to the raffle.
  • Guests included Jim Zieger, the President of the Missouri BASS Nation and members of the Northwest Missouri State University Fishing Club.
  • Club members nominated three very deserving members for the annual sportsman of the year award. Those nominees were Bill Horvath, Bill Gevedon, and Mark Luna.

The club awarded this prestigious award to Mark Luna.

  • The Leavenworth Eagles club provided the venue for this year‘s banquet, and once again they provided a tremendous meal and a great location for the event.
  • There was a special presentation to Logan Newlin, a member of the NWMSU Fishing Club who qualified for the FLW college national championship to be held on the Harris Chain of lakes in Florida next month. Logan was presented with a check for $500 to help defray costs associated with the tournament. Great job Logan.
