KBF Membership Form 2019 Dues


Club admins can begin collecting Membership Dues for Club Members and Submitting the rosters for the calendar Year of 2019 to TBF.  This will help Members that want to compete in the early BFL events and want to beat the rush and make use of the Early Bird registration.  Reminder: Memberships for early events need to be on a Club Roster w/6 or more memberships in order to be processed at National Headquarters.

Club Admins, you will notice when you fill out your new Roster Update for 2019 that the Invoice will show the new address where you will send your Newly Created Invoice with matching payment. All roster updates will now be mailed directly to The Bass Federation, Inc.  and should be accompanied by matching funds for the Invoice. 

You will also notice that the State Dues for KBF has been increased by $1.  As of July 1, 2018 all Memberships Dues will require a 6% KY Sales Tax to be charged to each membership.  Therefore the extral $1 will cover the Sales Tax that is required for each membership.

Should you not have a home club in your area, you can join the KBF Statewide Bass Club.  Some members indicate they would like to sign up a NEW membership and be able to join a specific Club in their area. NOTE: If you fill out the form to join a specific Club, Keep in mind that the club you name MUST have already submitted a roster w/6 or more members, or you submission here will not be processed into that club.

KBF Statewide Bass Club members can use the link below to join and submit their membership directly to the Club Admin Donnie Keeton.   When you submit the form you must also immediately mail a check to the following address with payment for your KBF State Dues. ATTENTION should you choose to use this method, if your named club is not ACTIVE with TBF, your submitted form will be SAVED and processed when your Mother Club has become ACTIVE.  If your preference is to join a KBF Club that you are not already in.  You will need to contact the President of that Club and have him/her contact Donnie giving permission to enter you into that specified Club.
