Rotary Club fishing tourney postponed

Due to COVID-19, Rotary Club of Granbury’s first annual Bass Tournament is postponed, following suit with almost every other public event in the state. Originally set to take place on April 25, the Bass Tournament opened 150 slots for fishermen to show off their skills and potentially win prize money. The proceeds from the tournament are going to help fund college scholarships for Granbury High School seniors, as well as the Weekend Food for Kids Program. The tournament will now take place on Oct. 17 with the dinner being held the evening before on Oct. 16. All tournament rules and entry fees will stay the same. To find more information visit
