Based at Sneaky Pete’s Sports Bar, this second annual event comes to Lake Lewisville on September 26-27, 2009, offering anglers the chance to compete for over $100,000 in possible cash and prizes. Saturday’s event will feature an open team stringer format and Sunday’s event will be an open big bass format.

“Last year’s event was a huge success and with Oakley’s participation this year we are anticipating an even larger tournament field in 2009,” says Mark Jones, of BBT. “We’ve modified the format from last year to include a team stringer event and have increased our payout guarantees and percentages; but the thing we are most excited about is the opportunity to showcase Oakley’s polarized eyewear to our tournament anglers.”

“We are excited to partner with BBT and be involved in creating this unique tournament format,” said Louis Wellen, with Oakley Sports Marketing. “This alliance will allow Oakley the ability to interact with the grass roots anglers who drive this sport and educate them on the superior advantages that Oakley’s HDO Technology can provide them when competing on the water.”

The first 100 anglers to register for this event will receive a free pair of Oakley Polarized XLJ glasses valued at $195. Anglers may register for this event online at www.bigbasstour.com or www.northtexasclassic.com. BBT will also accept registrations via mail, fax and phone.
