The Spalding County Sportsman Club was formed in the 1950 and the group hunted and fished together. In the late 1960s the club started having bass tournaments aqnd these rules were started from club rules at the time. No imput from the Bass Angler Sportsman Society was used, unlike the Flint River Bass Club rules - see the link to the right. Those rules were developed from BASS. These rules have developed over the years and have served the club well. I. TOURNAMENT COMMITTEES AND OFFICERS
