B.A.S.S., and the Tulsa Sports Commission have announced its selection of Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees and the Tulsa metro region as the site and host of the 2013 Bassmaster Classic, Feb. 22-24, 2013. It is the 43rd edition of sport fishing's greatest championship and the first to be hosted by the state of Oklahoma.
Grand Lake marks the farthest west site for the Classic since the 1979 championship on Lake Texoma. It is the sixth time that B.A.S.S. has held a professional event on Grand Lake, which was the venue for three Invitational tournaments in the 1990s and Elite Series events in 2006 and 2007.
The BOK Center will hold daily weigh-ins and the Tulsa Convention Center will hold the Classic Outdoors Expo. Competition boats will launch from Disney State Park Recreation Area #3 (http://www.stateparks.com/little_bluedisney.html) near Pensacola Dam, the world's longest multiple arch dam, which impounded the Grand River to form the lake in 1940.
