Combs announces Sam Rayburn Slam for charity

Bassmaster Elite Series pro Keith Combs is excited to announce the 1st Annual Keith Combs Sam Rayburn Slam. The tournament will be held Oct. 29, 2016 at Cassel Boykin Park on Lake Sam Rayburn. It is an open team tournament with over 135 percent payout. The tournament will also feature additional youth and college team prizes.

The main objective of the tournament is to bring awareness and to raise funds for Warriors Weekend. Warriors Weekend is a non-profit organization dedicated to the support of veterans of the United States of America with an emphasis on those wounded in the Global War on Terrorism. Visit the Warriors Weekend website.

In conjunction with the event, there will be a raffle which will include a 70-quart Pelican cooler overflowing with products from Strike King, Owner, Seaguar, Shimano and Tackle Addict, a Minn Kota trolling motor, and Power Tackle Rods. Raffle tickets are one for $10 or three for $20 and can be purchased at this location.

We will also be auctioning off guided fishing packages from professional anglers Keith Combs, James Niggemeyer, Greg West, Darold Gleason and Clark Rheem. The auction will also feature two VIP tickets to the Professional Bull Riders Iron Cowboy to be held at AT&T Stadium in 2017. We are also auctioning off a custom built fishing rod from Batson Enterprises. The rod will be built to your own specs by master rod builder Bill Batson. The final auction item will be an autographed pair of game cleats from NFL defensive end Brian Robison of the Minnesota Vikings.

Auctions are ongoing on Keith Combs' Facebook page. All proceeds from the raffle and auction will go to benefit Warriors Weekend.
