[As below, fish pertains to
either Smallmouth or Largemouth Bass only]
DRAWING FOR PARTNERS:
- Members who intend on fishing an upcoming
tournament but cannot attend the monthly meeting
previous to that tournament must contact a member of
the Tournament Committee prior to that meeting.
Members who do not make a commitment to fishing a
tournament before or during the monthly meeting will
not be drawn for that tournament.
- Pertaining to weigh-in events: If a
boat owner decides to fish but did not enter his name
into the draw pool, he must go as a rider. In
which case a boater will be paired with the remaining
owners who were not previously drawn from that
pool. If no unpaired boats exist, and any of the
boat owners previously paired wish to fish alone
[provided their rider has not fished more than one (1)
time with the boat owner entering late] his rider may
be switched to the late entry boat owner. If
more than one (1) owner wishes to fish alone, a
drawing must be held to determine the pairing.
If a rider enters after the initial draw, an
available owner will be drawn from all remaining boats
not paired. The owners who were in the draw pool
and not paired with any rider may choose to fish alone
or may pair up with another owner from that pool also
not paired. In this case, the members cannot
fish with the same person more than twice per year
rule would not apply.
- If a remaining boat owner does not have a rider
paired with him after the draw & it was suggested
that he find a rider outside the club, that rider will
not later be told that he cannot fish in the
tournament. However, if the remaining boat owner
has not yet found a rider & we could use his boat
for a late entry of one of our members, the owner must
take our member.
- A member who commits himself to a club tournament
& later finds he cannot make good on his
commitment must contact a member of the Tournament
Committee at least 24 hours prior to the tournament
unless an emergency was determined to be the reason
- An owner & rider may only fish together two
(2) times over the course of any one (1)
tournament season. This rule ma& be waived
[if need be] to allow as many of our members to
participate in a tournament as possible.
- Situations not covered in the tournament rules [or
any amendments to them] will be handled at the
discretion of the Tournament Committee.
- A guest can fish only 3 point tournaments
before he is expected to join the club.
- After the guest joins the club they will receive
points and weight for when they fished as a guest
towards their end of year standings.
- The yearly tournament fee is $140.00 per
member which covers all of our club tournaments
except the two-day event. This fee is a portion of
our total dues for the year which is due by the
October meeting each year. Additionally,
there is a $20.00 per member entry fee for
each tournament which is paid to the Tournament
Director the morning of the event. Fees for
two-day tournaments will be agreed upon by all
participants prior to that tournament.
Lunker fees will be determined and paid in full
the morning of each individual tournament.
No refunds will be given for any reason.
- Members with outstanding dues, tournament fees,
or other amounts to the club will not be eligible
to fish any tournaments until that member is
current. Outstanding amounts must be paid at
the meeting prior to the member being drawn to
participate in any upcoming tournaments.
Payments of this type at the launch ramp are not
at Club tournaments is as follows: 1st place -
$6.00 X the number of participants
2nd place - $4.00 X the number of participants
3rd place - $3.00 X the number of participants
LUNKER - $2.00 X the number of participants
The extra $5.00 goes toward the CLASSIC at the
end of the year.
- Both owner & rider should agree to a
reasonable rider fee that is satisfactory to both
parties before launch time. A maximum
of $25.00 per day plus half (1/2) of the
launch fee will be paid by the rider on unlimited
horsepower lakes only. No fee has been
set for electric lakes and will be at the
discretion of both parties.
