The FLW Tournament is making changes in their event schedule due to predicted weather conditions and excess rainfall. 

Tournament officials said they will be keeping their event setup at Prairie Creek Park through the weekend instead of moving the expo and weigh-ins to the Walmart parking lot in Rogers. The expo is still set for Saturday from noon – 4 p.m. and Sunday weigh-ns at 4 p.m. Officials said as of Friday morning, they are still planning to have the rod and reel giveaway to the first 100 children 14-years-old and under on Saturday and Sunday.

Officials did say they are monitoring the weather and will make a judgment call on Saturday morning on whether or not the fishery is safe for the final 20 anglers to compete. Officials said angler safety is their top priority, but they don’t “foresee cancelling any days of the competition.”

The Prairie Creek Park is located at 9300 N. Park Rd. in Rogers.
