LINCOLN Ca. – With the 2012 Thunder Valley Outdoors Future Pro Tour season now firmly planted in the FPT archives, all eyes have quickly turned to the highlight event of the season – the prestigious FPT Classic championship which will be held Nov 4th and 5th on the Sacramento River, and the California Delta.
This year’s championship will deliver a challenge like none other before it, as qualifying competitors will test their skills – on day one, on a river system that is loaded with three species of bass, but virtually untouched by any of the western circuits or their participating anglers.
The field has been set at only 78 teams who stayed the course through a grinding seven-event tour, to earn their way into this championship competition, and give them a chance at winning the keys to a new Ranger/Evinrude boat package valued at $35,000, along with the coveted FPT Classic crown.
Thunder Valley Casino/Resort, California’s #1 rated 4-diamond casino resort, will roll out the red carpet for Classic qualifiers and on Friday, Nov 2nd, will host an elegant venue in PANO Hall, its well appointed, 10,000 square foot banquet room, that will feature a sponsor-angler cocktail mixer, an all-you-can eat gourmet dinner buffet, plus all of the fun FPT Classic qualifiers have come to expect at FPT Classic celebrations.
