We have arrived. The crew providing coverage of the 2013 Bassmaster Classic has converged on Tulsa, and are beginning our full-press coverage.
The Little Rock contingent hit the road early Tuesday to arrive for today’s registration and the angler meetings. Steve Bowman, Steve Wright and James Overstreet were on my tail, and since I had some extra time, I decided to check out the Bass Pro Shop in Broken Arrow, Okla., to see what they might have going on for the Classic.
Besides appearances by Roland Martin, Rick Clunn and Timmy Horton, among others, the 130,000-square-foot Bass Pro Shop will be providing free shuttle service to the Expo and weigh-in on each tournament day.
Shuttle service beings at 11 a.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. With downtown parking at a premium, expect a good number of people to take advantage.
