Our mandate is to help fellow bass anglers enjoy the sport of bass fishing and become a better bass angler. We clearly recognize that by promoting friendly social interaction shared with a positive learning atmosphere enables our members to obtain the ultimate membership experience. Throughout our events, we pledge to provide the highest quality of education, conservation and respect for the great outdoors. Becoming a member entitles you and your family to share in a variety of bass fishing benefits like discounts at famous retailers, receive upcoming MBA seminar and event notices, and the eligibility to compete for various MBA awards—including the prestigious Tournament of Champions and the MBA Member of the Year Award.

Member of the Year Points Race

Member of the Year - Possibly the Greatest Manitoban Award Out There!
The most prestigious trophy in Manitoba bass fishing history will again be awarded to the greatest MBA member of 2010.  An award that recognizes skill, dedication, commitment, camaraderie and a willingness to promote fishing ethics and personal experiences.  The upcoming 2010 MBA event and tournament calendar will see members from both Manitoba and Ontario running a demanding, yet rewarding, gauntlet in efforts to get their grubby hands on this famed award.

So How do I Win the Hardware?
First, you must become a member.  Then, by attending and participating in club events, tournaments, and seminars, you will gain points towards an invite to the Tournament of Champions scheduled for October 9, 2010.  Only the top 5 point leading members will be invited to a top secret location to compete in a "show-down-fish-off-all-expenses-paid" event.  The winner of the Tournament of Champions becomes the MBA Member of the Year, and undoubtedly, will hail the MBA trophy and be recognized for this remarkable achievement.
And to keep the excitement, suspense and anticipation amongst fellow members leading up to the Tournament of Champions, the event winner will not be made public until the MBA Gala and Awards Night.   
The Challenge is out for 2010... do you have what it takes?
