1.) What are deposits?
Deposits are a down payments on qualifying events of your choice (Minimum 6) in the amount of 50.00 each totaling 300.00. We have deposits so that teams are guaranteed a spot for the year. It also controls the amount of boats in a given year due to the 50 team limit. We do have 7 total events but only 6 are required for the optional points race. Fish all 7 and you my drop your lowest finish. We highly recommend sending in all 7 events if you plan to fish them all due to they may fill.
2.) What is reserved status?
It means you have paid the deposits as well as the 75.00 team membership a total of 375.00 (6) events or 425.00 (7) events and are guaranteed a spot for the 2019 season. Each events balance is due (wed before each event 150.00). Yearly deposits have priority over single event entrants. If an event is not full we will go to the (paid) waiting list and take entrants in order that they appear on the list until the event is full. Paid waiting list entrants must pay the 200.00 entry and their membership in order to be added to that list. If event is still not full after going to the paid waiting list we will accept entry's at the ramp.
3.) Double Draw is paying for a minimum of 6 events in full. Double draw teams get two chances at drawing boat numbers.
Amount 6 events 1,275.00
Amount 7 events 1,475.00
4.) New format started in 2019
In 2019 we will be offering 7 events. We have made another event available for more flexibility. If you fish all 7 events you may drop your lowest finishing event for points purposes. If you are in contention for points its recommended to fish all 7 events or you will be at a disadvantage.
An Alternate may fish in place of a team member during the season. Alternates must pay 50.00 alternate fee and will be considered a new team for points purposes. This year with the Team Of The Year money being on the line and the drop one format to qualify for those monies no alternates will be allowed. We feel OMBTT with this kind of money on the line should become your priority.
6.) CANCELLED EVENT(S):
In the case that an event is cancelled then the entry fees, minus the 10% forward, will be disbursed among the remaining events. If it is the last event we will try to re schedule if we cant we will refund all monies.
7.) INCENTIVE TEAM (NEW FOR 2019)
Incentive teams are those who have purchased a new or brand new leftover model glass boat from our sponsor Knox Marine. They will receive the incentive offered on the incentive page from the sponsor. Incentive teams are always guaranteed a spot.
8.) Team Of Year Money (TOY Money)
Team of the year will no longer fish for free the next year. Instead they will win cold hard cash! In order to win that cash you must enter the (TOY Money) pot. It is a 50.00 one time team pot that qualify you for the pot monies as well as sponsor monies and circuit monies. We will pay the highest 5 finishers entered in the pot 50%/20%/15%/10%/5%
9.) New Payouts for 2019
With no classic we have changed the payout table for 2019 to go deeper into the field. Also my team will pay to fish the year. Only Staff and 2018 points champs will fish for free. 2019 points champs will not fish for free in 2020 but are eligible to win the TOY money if entered into the pot.
