FLW To Reschedule Tournaments Through April 5
Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit at Lake Martin to Continue, All Other Events Postponed
ALEXANDER CITY, Ala. (March 17, 2020) – FLW announced today that out of an abundance of caution and the uncertainty of venue availability amid rapidly evolving restrictions, the organization will reschedule all tournaments through April 5, except for the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit event on Lake Martin in Alexander City, Alabama, for which practice has already begun and extra precautions have been instituted.
The Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit tournament originally scheduled for April 2-5 on Cherokee Lake will be held June 11-14 on Cherokee.
In addition to tournaments through April 5, the May 7-9 Toyota Series tournament on Neely Henry Lake will also be rescheduled to allow for cohesive scheduling in the circuit’s Southeastern division given the need to reschedule the division’s March 26-28 tournament on Wheeler Lake.
Rescheduled dates for all affected tournaments during this period will be announced as soon as possible. These tournaments include:

FLW recommends that everyone follow the recommendations from the CDC on everyday prevention of viral infection, which include:
- Stay home when sick or living with a sick person.
- Cover the nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing.
- Wash hands often with soap and water.
- Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.
- Limit face-to-face contact.
- Consult a healthcare provider as needed.
