THERE WILL BE NO OFF LIMIT period for our events except from the beginning of the Friday night pre-tournament meeting until launch on Saturday.

THE FRIDAY NIGHT MEETING will consist of check-in period, meal, inspirational speaker, door prizes, business meeting and boat draw. If one of the members of the team attends this meeting the team will be given 50 points towards the end of year Point Championship. Remember if your work or any other reason does not allow you to attend you can still fish the event but you will lose the 50 points. 

FINISH IN THE TOP 80% of the Division and fish three events you will be eligible to fish in the District Qualifying Championship. If you fish all 5 of the division events you will be eligible to fish all District Championships around the country.

THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP FIELD will be made up of the Division Point Champions, top 20% of the District Championship fields and top male/female team and top adult/junior team from each District Championship. If qualifiers can't attend we will drop down to the next qualifier to fill the event.
