For only one more week, B.A.S.S. Federation Nation members can pre-register for the 2012 Bassmaster Classic in Shreveport-Bossier City, La., Feb. 24-26.

“Federation Nation members shouldn’t miss this opportunity to get priority seating at the weigh-in and access to the Federation Nation Member Lounge,” said Emily Hand, B.A.S.S. Coordinator.

Considering the crowds in Shreveport-Bossier City in 2009, it will behoove any fan to arrive at the weigh-ins early and to have good seats set aside.

The Federation Nation Member Lounge will be located on the second floor of the Shreveport Convention Center, right above the 2012 Bassmaster Classic Expo presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods. Federation Nation members will have unlimited access to the lounge while it's open.

Hours for the lounge are as follows:

  • Friday, Feb. 24, noon to 4 p.m.
  • Saturday, Feb. 25, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Sunday, Feb. 26, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The lounge offers drinks, light refreshments and a place to sit down. “It’s a nice place to get a soda and take a rest before heading over to the weigh-in,” said Hand. The lounge is also open to B.A.S.S. Life Members.

Members who pre-register can pick up their personalized credentials at the credential desk on any of the three days of the show.

Federation Nation members receive early entry into the Expo. The show opens to the public at noon on Friday, Feb. 24, but Life and Federation Nation members can enter at 11 a.m.
