New FLW Weigh - in Site for Table Rock Event - Maybe

Fans already staking out the best spot?
Word came down from FLW officials this week the weigh in and expo site for the Tour event on Table Rock will be at the Walmart Super Center on Branson Hills Parkway in Branson, MO.

The original weigh in site, The Branson Convention Center, was damaged by a tornado last month and will not re - open until June.

The Branson Super Center is a viable location, plenty  of access, huge parking lot and great visibility.

The only possible snag?  Weather forecasters predict four to eight inches of rain to fall across the region this week.
The FLW Tour event was moved last year due to record flooding on Table Rock Lake.

The Corps of engineers has begun releasing water in anticipation of heavy rain fall, lake levels on Beaver Lake (above Table Rock) and Table Rock are stable at the top of power pool at the moment, flood warnings on the White River and it's tributaries are dumping thousands of cubic feet of water into Beaver Lake as this is being written.

A flood watch has been issued for the entire White River Water Shed that feeds Table Rock Lake.

In a perfect world the water rises a few feet and the anglers have a field day on Table Rock, if history repeats it's self. The FLW Tour event and BASS Open event on Table Rock could be cancelled again and the BASS Elite event on Bull Shoals next month could be effected.
