KBF Dee Zee The TEN – New Opportunities

The new reality that we face is full of uncertainty and adjustments. We are all facing a worldwide health crisis and it will surely impact our families, businesses, jobs and opportunities. KBF is committed to providing the best community support and competitive experiences possible. Doing so will require adjustments from all of us.

The winner of the 2021 Dee Zee KBF TENvitational earns a coveted spot in the Dee Zee KBF The TEN. This event will be combined with a 2021 Realtree Fishing KBF TRAIL Series tournament to create the kick off event for the 2021 Season. Competitors will also earn KBF ANGLR of the YEAR points and gain experience on the fishery that will host the 2021 Dee Zee KBF The TEN. More details to follow on this event.

KBF is contributing significant resources to its State, Regional and Special Challenges to provide maximum opportunities during these ever-changing circumstances. Coordination with Regional Coordinators, Tournament Coordinators, Partner Group Leadership and active members will help us adjust to evolving local, state and federal guidelines and restrictions. We will strive to be a resource for information dissemination and compliance guidance.

Moving forward, an increase from 10% to 25% in qualifications for both Challenge Series Championshp and KBF National Championship will provide additional opportunities and incentives for the KBF Challenge Series. Full program details may be found in the Challenge Series Update blog post: 

In addition, KBF has partnered with the All-American Kayak Classic presented by Everhart Outdoors to provide an additional path to the 2021 Dee Zee KBF The TEN. KBF committed $5,000 to help bolster the All-American Kayak Classic sponsorships and will continue to work with event director, Joshua Boothe, to coordinate even more support. The top 50 KBF Members from this event will also qualify for the 2021 KBF YakAttack National Championship.

KBF asks for your help during these difficult times by encouraging you to support our Each One Reach One Campaign where we challenge each member to recruit one new KBF Member in 2020.
