Newsworthy Items

Here are some things we have come across or have been sent to us that you may find of intrest:


Attn: California Anglers and voters
 In the June 2001 issue of BASSMASTER there is a letter in the "Mail Call" section of intrest to all. It is written by Tom Harman, Assemblyman, 67th District. The just of the letter is the fact that he (Tom) has introuced legislation to get rid of the "Wear you fishing liscense law" . We know there are pros and cons to this law and everybody is entilted to their own opnion. Please do check it out if you have not seen it already. If you have any more info on this please forward to us at tournamenttrail@fishing.com and we will pass it along.

long winded but a good idea!!!
  This sounds more practical than some other ideas floating around: I hear we are going to hit close to $3.00 a gallon by the summer. Want gasoline prices to come down? We need some intelligent, united action. Phillip Hollsworth offered the following good idea, and it makes much more sense than the "don't buy gas on a certain day" campaign that was going around last April or May! The oil companies just laughed at us because they knew we couldn't continue to "hurt" ourselves by refusing to buy gas. It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them. BUT, whoever thought of this idea has come up with a plan that can really work. Please read it and join with us! "By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $1.50 is super cheap. Me too! It is currently $1.97 for regular unleaded in my town. Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a gallon of gas is CHEAP at $1.50- $1.75, we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the market-place....not sellers. With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take action! The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their gas. And we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves. How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop buying gas. But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act together to force a price war. Here's the idea: For the REST OF THIS YEAR, DON'T purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies (which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL. If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit. But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Exxon and Mobil gas buyers. It's really simple to do!! Now, don't whimp out on me at this point... keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach Millions of people!! I am sending this note to about thirty people. If each of you send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000) ... and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers! If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted! If it goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!! Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. That's all. How long would all that take? If each of us sends this email out to ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days! I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you? Acting together we can make a difference. If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on. PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.
