WADDINGTON The St. Lawrence River Showdown Committee will hold an informational meeting on the Bass Anglers Sportsman Societys Bass Elite Tournament at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Hepburn Library community room.
We want to encourage everyone in the surrounding villages and towns and especially residents and businesses in Waddington to attend so that they know what to expect the week of the tournament, Mayor Janet M. Otto-Cassada said Thursday.
Questions could concern the amount of anglers the festival will have, how to rent your house for the festival, how businesses can sponsor events and the security aspects of events going on throughout the week, the mayor said.
The national bass fishing tournament will take place Aug. 8 to 11, with a weeks worth of events scheduled around the competition. The tournament is expected to draw thousands of people to northern St. Lawrence County.
St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Patricia L. McKeown and her staff also will be on hand to answer questions.
