Sheriffs’ association announces open bass tournament


The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association and Jackson County Sheriff’s Department will hold the 12th annual Indiana Sheriffs’ Association Sheriff Robert “Buck” Stogsdill Open Bass Tournament on April 29.

The tournament is named after Stogsdill, former Brown County sheriff who died in 2011.

This year’s event will take place at Lake Monroe-Cutright Ramp on April 23 with takeoff between 7 and 7:30 a.m. The registration fee per team is $125. There will be a raffle that includes food and drinks for all participants at the weigh-in. There will be coffee and doughnuts at the shelter house in the morning.

The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association was first established in 1930, and it was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization comprised of the 92 county sheriffs, their deputies and correctional staff in 1977.

The association was formed for providing assistance to the sheriff’s offices, thereby enabling them to improve the delivery of law enforcement and correctional services to the citizens of the state.

All proceeds from the tournament will benefit the association’s line of duty death benefit, youth leadership camps and scholarship programs.
