Tuesday, Apr 15, 2008 8:44am

SHREVEPORT, LA  (By: Tom Pace, Talk of the Town) BREAKING SPORTS:  10:45AM  4-15-08  $2,500 Guaranteed 1st place prize money is up for grabs at the First Annual River Bend Rotary Bass Tournament, Saturday, May 3, 2008 at Clark’s Red River Marina. 

Entry fee for the two-man teams is only $100, with tournament hours from 6a 'til 3pm.  A majority of the funds raised by Riverbend Rotary will be used to repair and maintain the Shreveport Police and Firefighters Memorial on the Shreveport riverfront. 

Meanwhile, a portion of the net proceeds will benefit those local projects that have been adopted by the River Bend Rotary Club – including the Gingerbread House and the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank. 

Teams may register at Clarks Marina in Shreveport, or by calling Bill Geaslin at (318) 422-3033.  Registration may take place anytime before the tournament begins at 6:00 a.m. on May 3, 2008.  A $10 Big Bass pot is also available. 

All teams must be paid in full prior to entering the water the day of the event. The tournament will be a “trailer tournament” format, meaning fishermen can launch from any site on the Red River at any time after 6:00 a.m. 

The tournament will end promptly at 3:00 p.m., with all participants required to check-in at the Clark’s Marina pavilion no later than 3:30 p.m. 
First place grand prize is a guaranteed $2,500.  All other places and prizes will be based on entries.  For more information, contact Bill Geaslin, (318) 422-3033 or Robby Woods, (318) 869-3425.
