Team of the Year Rosters04/23/15

From the annual meeting:

Team Rosters with up to 4 team members will be required to qualify for Team of the Year consideration.
The boat's captain will need to be identified on the roster. During a tournament a minimum of 2 team members from the roster need to shoot for the captain's team to qualify for tournament points. Alternate shooters, not on the roster, can make up the remaining 2 spots at any given tournament.

I would like to get the roster sheet started. I'll be collecting this information at the tournaments as well, but if you have the names of the 4 people for your roster I would like to start getting them as soon as possible.

Here's my example:
Team Obscure Adventures: Captain Pete Gregoire, Tony Denboer, Jamie Stuart, Jared Shaw

2015 State Championship Rules01/18/15

The format for the 2015 State Championship is changing in the following ways:

The tournament will take place over two consecutive nights - Friday, May 15 and Saturday, May 16, 2015

Special Rules for the State Championship
Teams seeking to qualify as state champions will need to shoot both nights. The entry form will have a checkbox for teams to elect to be in the state championship format.

On Friday night teams will draw numbers to determine their starting order and lake they will shoot on for that night. Teams drawing an odd number will shoot on one lake and teams drawing an even number will shoot the other lake.

On Saturday night teams will switch lakes and the take-off order will reverse.

Total numbers teams - the quantity of fish taken on both nights will be added together and the team with the most fish overall will be crowned State Champion

Big 30 teams - the total weights of the 30 qualifying fish from each night will be added together and the team with the heaviest weight will be crowned State Champion

In the case of a tie - the team with the largest overall fish will win the tiebreaker in either category.

Special Rules for the Lake Tournaments
Teams that do not wish to fish for the state championship, but still want to compete for cash prizes:

Teams shooting on Friday night only will be able to choose either lake. The same applies to teams that are shooting Saturday night only.

Teams will not be allowed to join the race for the State Championship after registration on Friday night.

There will be 4 separate payouts handled on Sunday morning following the finish of the Saturday night tournament. Fish taken from one body of water will qualify for cash prizes irrespective of which night they were caught.

Total Numbers from Petenwell - Cash Payouts for places 1-5
Total Numbers from Castlerock - Cash Payouts for places 1-5
Big 30 from Petenwell - Cash Payouts for places 1-5
Big 30 from Castlerock - Cash Payouts for places 1-5

The Overall Big Fish and Wildcard formats for each lake will also be paid out on Sunday morning.
