13. The name change
The B.A.S.S. Nation had many memorable moments in 2013, including becoming known as the B.A.S.S. Nation, which became effective Jan. 1, 2013. The name change from B.A.S.S. Federation Nation was made to encompass all the opportunites the club organization offers, from competition to conservation to youth, as well as to better reflect the community aspect of the organization.
