And this is why we push you and harp on you and you should be pushing and harping on your clubs to get membership in and updated and on time………… only takes once for something to happen…… better follow the rules, make 100% sure membership dues are paid BEFRE they fish for adult and kids, make sure waivers are signed and you check everyone out in the morning and in , in the afternoon at every single event you ever do NO exceptions. Or it could be YOU facing this challenge.  $50 a head for membership or $25 for high school & Junior don’t sound so high now does it.

So here we go…………..

Yours In Service,

Robert Cartlidge

A $10-million dollar lawsuit has been filed in connection with the deaths of two Obion County Central bass team members and their boat captain, during a school sponsored fishing tournament. Team members, fifteen year old Chandler Smith and fifteen year old Kenneth Driver II, along with 43 year old boat operator Kenneth Driver, were killed when their boat went through Pickwick Dam on February 22nd of 2020. It was not until the following day that the three were reported as missing. After an exhaustive search by multiple agencies and individuals, the bodies were discovered on March 10th, 11th and 12th.

The lawsuit was filed by Lisa Johnson, of Troy, who is the surviving mother of Kenneth Driver II. The defendants in the lawsuit are the Obion County School District; Obion County Board of Education; Obion County Central High School fishing team; bass fishing coach William Thomas Simmons; and Beau Pemberton, as administrator of the estate of Kenneth Driver Sr.

The lawsuit is seeking five-million dollars in compensatory damages and five million dollars in punitive damages.
