FLW Membership Status for KBF Fishermen
With your TBF membership you receive a FLW Subscriber Membership. For 99% of our membership that is. As previously defined FLW raised their Competitor membership to $60 per person. (a FLW competitor is required to fish an FLW event like a BFL or the ALL American. This has nothing to do with being able to fish any TBF event like the National Semi Finals or the Federation National Championship.
Here is the contingency you need for all anglers to understand. If you wish to advance to the BFL All AMERICAN (14 anglers= top boater & top co-angler from each of the 7 Divisions) from next springs 2021 TBF Federation National Championship you MUST upgrade to a FLW Competitor membership with FLW Before the START of this years National Semi Finals, it cannot be done after the National Semi Final event, Period. It is a contingency just like Ranger Cup or any other you MUST be in before you Qualify.
To upgrade from Subscriber, YOU must call FLW (270-252-1000), TELL THEM YOU ARE A TBF MEMBER, and that you need to upgrade to a Competitor Membership. You are already a subscriber member, therefore TBF members get the guaranteed lowest price in the nation for a FLW competitor membership, instead of $60.00 it is only $48.50 to TBF members since we have already taken care of the subscriber membership and this is a upgrade.
You do NOT have to upgrade or pay for a Competitor membership if you don’t want to, it is your choice. Just understand that IF you win the Division at next springs FNC and had not UPGRADED before the Semi Finals you cannot receive the invitation to the BFL ALL AMERICAN.
