Attention club Presidents and OBN members. Please see the statement below from Shimano Canada in regards to the upcoming Shimano AllStar night. After much discussions between Shimano, CBAF and of course the OBN, we all feel the correct decision was made. Kudos to Shimano for their continued support of both grass root organizations. Craig Butler OBN VP1 SHIMANO CANADA LTD. CANCELS “ANGLING ALL-STARS” EVENT Peterborough, Ontario – For Immediate Release – 3.4.20 – While Shimano’s “Angling All-Stars” event on March 25th in Whitby, ON was a sell-out with more than 200 anglers confirmed in hearing Bass Fishing tips from the likes of Pro Anglers Jeff ‘Gussy’ Gustafson and Aaron Martens, the current situation with the Coronavirus has unfortunately forced its cancellation. A big thank you to all that purchased tickets. Shimano recently announced a Global Corporate effort to keep its Team Shimano members and those they interact with safe from any potential contact, and any potential post event quarantine protocol. “Anglers throughout Canada know about Shimano’s efforts in the Fishery Resources, and those efforts obviously translate to Shimano consumers and employees both in Canada and worldwide,” said Bob Mahoney, Shimano Canada Marketing Manager. “We’ve always been passionate about sharing our latest Technologies and Products and how they support the enjoyment of fishing. Equally as important is being able to interact directly with our customers and talk about our Products and Fishing. Unfortunately at this time due to the Coronavirus situation, we are being forced to cancel this fantastic evening. A special thanks goes out to the Executives of Ontario B.A.S.S Nation and Canadian Bass Anglers Federation for their full support with this decision. We all agreed everyone's safety must come first. Full refunds will be available from your Clubs Executive. If you purchased your tickets from Gagnon’s Sports, you can receive your refund from them. A cash donation from Shimano will be made to both organizations. Thank you all for your continued support ... See more
