The first day of competition of the EverStart Series Sam Rayburn Reservoir event scheduled for Feb. 10-12 has been cancelled due to unsafe weather conditions.
“With water temperatures in the low 40s, winds gusting to 25 miles per hour and air temperatures of 28 degrees we just can’t let the guys go out,” said tournament director Ron Lappin. “If someone had mechanical problems or some other sort of incident they could end up getting killed and it’s just not worth it. Protecting our guys is my first concern.”
Lappin and FLW Outdoors officials are studying weather forecasts and weighing options and exploring alternative formats for the remaining days of the event. Go to FLWOutdoors.com for the latest updates on the EverStart Series Sam Rayburn Reservoir event.
