The Ark-La-Tex Sports Foundation has partnered with the ALS Association and local ALS Advocates, Jimmy and Mickie Roberts, for a Bass Fishing Tournament called “Lou Gehrig’s Disease can Kiss my Bass.” The tournament will be held at Grice’s Landing in Ringgold, La on Saturday August 2.
Tournament registration begins at 5 a.m. and the fishing kicks off promptly at 6 a.m. through 1:30 p.m. with hourly Weigh Ins and capping off at 2 p.m. with an official awards ceremony. Entry fee is $35 per person or $70 for a two man team.
The proceeds of the Lou Gehrig’s Disease Can Kiss My Bass Tournament will benefit the Ark-La-Tex Sports Foundation as well as the ALS Association and will help raise funds to sustain patient care and support cutting-edge research by the world’s best and brightest scientists.
It’s more than just a fishing tournament, it’s an opportunity to bring hope to ALS patients and their families, to raise money for a cure, and to come together with your friends and family to fight for something you care about.

About the Ark-La-Tex Sports Foundation:
The Ark-La-Tex Sports Foundation [ASF] was founded in May of 2013 by current President, Jimmy Gould. The Foundation was created on a father’s promise that his twin boys, Korey and Kyle Gould, will never be forgotten. The memory of these two young boys, who were tragically lost at birth, will forever be amplified through this Foundation’s missions and visions.
The Foundation is dedicated to providing funding for individuals committed to athletics, and grass roots organizations that rely on strong volunteer efforts and require foundation support to make a significant difference within the organization and the community.
