As we consider alternatives in life, we are taught to gravitate towards those with potential win-win outcomes.

When it comes to the upcoming 2023 Despino’s Tire CMN Bass Tournament  I can only see wins in every direction I look.

  • It's a day on the lake fishing. (It's not like it's back breaking work)
  • It's on Toledo Bend (one of the finest fisheries in the whole country)
  • Proceeds will go to Children's Miracle Network (That's always a win when kids are involved)
  • The winning team will receive a guaranteed $20,000 (A great payday for anyone)

See what I mean?  Only "wins" for all those who participate!

Just last year alone, in 2022, the Despino Tire CMN Bass Tournament raised over $44,000 for our local Children's Miracle Networks hospitals bringing the total raised over the past five years to well over $100,000.  Definitely one for the "win column."
