Currently, Greg is the General Manager of Fisherman's Headquarters on Kentucky Lake and has competed in bass tournaments since the mid 90's.

"I see the LBAA as an awesome opportunity for women's bass fishng and the sport of bass fishing in general. I'm excited about watching the LBAA grow and about helping to develop and maintain a fair and professional tournament staff."
Hi, I'm Don Day and I had the honor of MCing the 2009 WBT weigh-ins; but little did I know that my first year with the women would be the last year of that Tour. I was pleasantly surprised when my friend Cheryl Bowden got together with Secret York and some of the other ladies and announced that a new Women's Bass Tournament Trail would be established. I called Cheryl and asked if I could be on board...thankfully she said yes! So, here we go!
Born in Bainbridge, Georgia, Don grew up fishing and hunting in and around Lake Seminole. When he graduated High School in 1967, the United States was fully engaged in the war in Southeast Asia. Don immediately joined the U.S. Navy and served as a Gunners Mate aboard the USS Perry, a Destroyer based out of Mayport, Florida. The ship and it's crew served many tours of duty including one to Vietnam in 1969.
With his service to our Country completed in 1971, he found his way into the world of broadcasting and worked at various Radio and TV Stations around the Southeast. He retired in July 2008 but continues to be involved in many charitable endeavors and civic activities. He has MC'd the Buckmasters Classic and had the honor of being the "voice" of the Bassmasters Classic for over 20 years including many years of introducing Ray Scott, the founder of B.A.S.S. to thousands of bass fishing fanatics. Ray even asked Don to accompany him on an entertainment trip for our men and women in uniform serving in the Middle East. Don eagerly accepted and prior to Thanksgiving 2004 he joined Ray for a send-off by none other than President George W. Bush in the Oval Office.
Don, who now lives on 45 acres in Elmore County, is a former private pilot and sport parachutist, but these days you'll find him either shooting clays, fishing or hunting throughout the local area.
Ray Scott says, "Don has been a personal friend for many years and I know I can always count on him. We enjoyed lots of laughs and tears on our Ray Scott Iraq Thanksgiving Tour 2004 and Don and I agree, it was truly one of the highlights of our lives. Good luck Don and I wish you the best."
MEMBERSHIP, REGISTRATION AND MERCHANDISE
Vickie Barlow is the owner/operator of a small embroidery company. Having the right to distribute the official merchandise for the LBAA is a priviledge and honor. I hope to produce mercahndise that the organization and members are proud to wear.
Being a part of the LBAA is being part of history. This group of women is doing something that can only get better and bigger. I am excited about being part of an organization run by women for women and their destiny is controlled only by them. I am looking forward to being a part of the LBAA for a long time.
