It is another busy week at the Chamber of Commerce! We want to extend a warm Mountain Home welcome to the 2017 Toyota Bonus Bucks Bassmaster Team Championship fishermen. Over 340 fisherman from all over the United States and Canada will kick the tournament off Wednesday morning at 6:45. The winning team will take home a trophy anda Nitro Z20 boat powered by a Mercury 225 Pro XS with a Minn Kota trolling motor and Lowrance electronics, according to B.A.S.S. The individual winner will receive an automatic entry in the 2018 Bassmasters Classic.
The Chamber would like to thank 101 Boat Dock in Gamaliel for accommodating the four-day tournament. We also want to thank our volunteers, the City of Mountain Home, the Mountain Home A&P Commission, BASS Nation, and Nabatak, Inc.
Spectators are welcome at 101 Boat Dock for the launch at 6:45 a.m. and the weigh-ins at 2:45 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
Thank you to everyone in the community that came out to watch the Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade. All of our parade entries did a wonderful job with decorations and performances. Congratulations to our float winners:
