Tennessee Bass Nation State Junior Championship is coming is Carroll County
The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that on May 8, 2021, the Carroll County Thousand Acre Recreational Lake will host the Tennessee Bass Nation State Junior Championship.
The tournament, which is the State Championship for juniors, is expected to bring 80 or more three-person teams from across Tennessee to Carroll County. Teams will be in town on May 7 to register for the event. Fishermen are also likely to visit during March and April to practice on the Lake.
“I have volunteered at the high school and junior nationals for BASS for several years now and have seen first-hand the outstanding work of Carroll County to ensure the junior nationals were top notch each year. While BASS has a great crew it takes a lot of work from the local community for events to run well. I know we can trust Carroll County to help our TN Bass Nation Junior State Championship to be the best it has ever been” said David Lowrie, TN Bass Nation High School and Youth State Director.
Information taken from MTSU’s Tennessee Consumer Outlook March 2021 Report
The Psychology of Consumers
Consumer spending makes up two-thirds of the American economy. Decreases in consumer outlook that translate into reduced purchasing patterns can have significant negative effects on the economy. Conversely, increases in consumer outlook that translate into accelerated consumer spending can have significant positive effects on the economy. When consumers begin to feel comfortable about the future of the economy and their own personal financial situation, they will increase their spending. Such spending will then help to grow the economy as manufacturers and service providers begin to produce more and retailers begin to fill jobs to meet increased consumer demand.
Summary of the Report
There is good news for local businesses and retailers. As the economy continues to emerge from COVID shutdowns and restrictions, consumers are increasingly optimistic that the economy will improve in the future. As the number of vaccinations increase, restrictions are lifted, and workers are hired to handle growing consumer demand, continued optimism can set the stage for future spending as consumers become more comfortable opening up their wallets and spending in ways they were not able to do so last year. However, large increases in spending might not happen for a while, until consumers have become more comfortable with an improving economy.
