In April, 2019 we will converge on NW Arkansas where Bassmaster held the first Bass Anglers Sportsman’s Society professional bass fishing event. A lake where 106 anglers including Ray Murski, Shorty Evans, Rayborn Waits, Carlos Mayo and more cut their mark on bass fishing heritage June 5-7, 1967.


A tentative approval and reservation is in place for the Owners Invitational. Northwest Arkansas and Beaver Lake will be host to the 32nd annual 2019 Bass Cat Owners Invitational. The event will be held out of Prairie Creek and Rogers, AR, this is a great family atmosphere.
We will all converge on Rogers, Arkansas for registration April 25th, with event dates of the 26th and 27th. Our host will be Visit Rogers with the assistance of their A&P Commission.
Crystal Bridges Museum, Bentonville, Rogers and Fayetteville are all handy for those families attending. The Crystal Bridges Museum will leave everyone in amazement at the contribution Alice Walton, and the Walton family, made to their home town.
Northwest Arkansas is one of the most prosperous areas in the world. Business headquarters are many like those of Tyson Foods, JB Hunt, WalMart, Sam’s, George’s and more all settling in this Ozark community. There are so many developing businesses around that we couldn’t name them all. And don’t miss the historic A&Q Chicken House when you’re around Springdale. From our Presidents on down everyone who’s anyone in NW Arkansas frequented the restaurant.
Eureka Springs is just a few minutes north on the shores of Beaver and Pea Ridge National Battlefield will give everyone a piece of our Nations history with one of the few major Ozark conflicts during the Civil War.
This is also right down the road from Belle Vista, a Cooper Community. Our friends at Cooper Communities have long been supporters of Bass Cat. Being in their home town area and seeing what Belle Vista has to offer is neat. From the golf to the lakes Belle Vista has plenty to offer.
We chose NW Arkansas for our Bass Cat Family, to show more of our Ozarks beauty to all of the families. Your youth and spouses can definitely find a lot to do around Beaver Lake that week and we hope you bring them along!
