by: Kevin Jarnagin, Blue Heron Communications

(Feb. 20, 2014 - COLUMBIA, S.C.)

The Bassmaster Classic expo is prime location to get the kids out of the house to have some fun. The Bassmaster Classic tournament features the very best bass anglers in the world and the Classic expo hosts one of America's most recognizable fishing brands - Shakespeare. During the Expo, the legendary company will be conducting the Shakespeare Kids Challenge each day of the expo.

Kids will have an opportunity to test their skills at the Shakespeare booth that is located downstairs in the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex. All are welcomed to stop by and enjoy the fun surrounding the Shakespeare Kids Challenge.

The Shakespeare Kids Outdoor Challenge is perfect for youth of all ages. They will have an opportunity to create their own fishing memories with activities such as a fishing skills course and casting game for the younger kids. In addition, there will be lots of great Shakespeare prizes and cool giveaways.

The BJCC center is in downtown Birmingham (2100 Richard Arrington Jr. Blvd. North, Birmingham, AL 35203). The daily Bassmaster Classic weigh-in will be conducted to the attached BJCC Arena. The Village, Expo and Classic weigh-ins are all free admission.
