SETX Plays Host to Two Tournament Weekend

April 13-14- Jasper, Tx- Having cancelled it's first two tournaments of the season, it was a make up weekend for the Ford SETX HS Champions Series Presented by Skeeter Boats. "We had scheduled our final qualifying tourney of the season for the 13th of April and decided to try to squeeze in at least one of the cancellations in on Sunday the 14th and make this weekend a dual tourney weekend" said SETX President Bryan Thomas. Weather and lake levels have really taken a toll on the Rayburn area this season and it has left many tournament trails scrambling to try and make up these canceled events, including SETX. "There just isn't a lot we can do when we see conditions like we have seen this spring on Rayburn" said SETX board member Tom Selman. "We are not the only ones. Other trails are having to do the same thing and it leaves all of us scrambling to use the same facilities. We really hope we are rewarded with better weather next season", concluded Selman.
