We are a youth organization that gives College, High School, and Junior aged kids a place to fish in competitions. On some of our local and neighboring state lakes.
Fish in any one or more of our new look 3 team trail divisions. The In-State(KS.) division, and Multi-State(Neighboring States) Big Lake division. Each division will have 2 weekends. Each with a Saturday tournament and a separate tournament on Sunday(usually 2 different lakes IF logistically possible) on the same weekend. While the third division called the Opens division gives you more flexibility on travel and scheduling to pick which events work for you. The in-state division will be the first events of the fall, and the multi-state division will be the later fall event. The opposite will take place in the 2nd half of the season. Multi-State division will go first then the In-State division. This is due to the fact that weather is usually a little warmer in most places we are trying to fish in the Multi State division by at least a few degrees.
The top 15% of teams from each 3 divisions that fish 4 events advance to State Championship. Will be tracked on the same points system as we've been using. Will upload that into the rules for each tournament. If you win a qualifying event in any one of the divisions and as long as you fish at least 2 events you are automatically in the state championship. Anglers that fish more than 5 events will automatically drop the worse score for the opens division ranking. You may fish both divisions and if you fish all 8 events(would qualify you for all 3 leaderboards). Not only would you improve yourself as an angler but also improve your chance of qualifying. Just by fishing 4 events in one division and 1 event in the other division improves your odds as well by making you eligible for two leaderboards.
Second chance best two events leaderboard. Keep your two best team scores(drop the rest) and rank in the top 10% of your division and qualify for state championship as well. Must fish at least 2 events to be eligible.
Anglers of the year from each division will receive a automatic birth into the Bassmaster.com National Championship once we reach 50 boats in each division. If 50 boats is not reached in the 3 divisions then those 3 teams will go into a *tiebreaker(same as Bassmaster high school tournament weigh in rules) for one spot to National Championship birth. We are guaranteed 2 spots by B.A.S.S. each year. If we reach 50+ teams in the in-state, 50+ in the opens, and 50+ in the multi state we will get 6-8 invites.
We will have one weekend scheduled for make up days in the spring if for any reason an event or multiple events where not able to go as scheduled. In the event we can't make up all the events on the scheduled make up weekend we will go to 3 everywhere it says 4 in the rules above for leaderboards. If no events were needed to be rescheduled we will use the scheduled make up weekend as a last chance to qualify for the State Championship for those who didn't already qualify. Taking the top 10% from that field to the state championship. If you have any questions regarding how this new format works please call or email me. 913-562-4660 cell
