By paying a $20 deposit for an event you select you will be given the next available boat number. If you pay a $20 deposit for an entire division season you will receive the next available boat number available for the entire season. Both will result in a higher take off position rather than signing up at the ramp. NOTE: Should you not be able to attend a event that you have placed a deposit on call or e-mail your director and inform him so that your number can be reused for that particular tournament you cannot attend. Doing so helps the director run his tournament. No loss of deposit will result.
Yes, If expected highs are over 90+ degrees weigh in times will be shortened. However, any announcements made by the Tournament Director at the tournament site take precedent over written rules. So check with your director.
One member must fish a minimum of 5 and the other member a minimum of 4.
Here is how it works. Once a tournament is completed the data file (results) are sent to Bob where they are made web ready. Unless there is more than 1 tournament scheduled for the weekend. With that being the case the data file is sent to the next tournament director for use. After that tournament they are then sent to Bob.
All three directors have day jobs. Bob drives a truck, Rusty works for a fire department and Timmy works at an automotive dealership. We make every effort to post in a timely fashion.
I’ll get them up as fast as time permits.
Yes, fish as many different divisions as you want. Points will be assigned to the division you are competing in or the Open division.
Your paid membership will be good in ALL divisions during the 2016 season. Division Champions from each division will receive their entry fee paid for the season ending JOE BASS Team Trail Invitational plus, with the exception of Open Division #1 boat position the following season.
Fish more divisions for the opportunity to win more money, See the Joe Bass Progressive Incentive.
The fall make up tournament is scheduled 2 weeks (if possible) prior to our annual Team Invitational. The tournament is normally held on the Team Invitational lake. This tournament will be the scheduled make up event for all divisions and a last chance event for all divisions. No points will be applied to your regularly fished division irregardless of which it was. Fall Make Up will not change a divisions standings.
Buy ins are offered as an additional way to meet the required tournaments for Invitational qualification. Example: if a team was only able to fish 4 events one more would be necessary for boater qualification. A buy in would be allowed to meet this qualification. Additional information about buy ins; Only 1 buy in per team, beginning with the 2013 season buy in teams entry will be paid out at the season ending make up event. NOTE: I see this as a benefit to the teams that miss a tournament due to illness, family, or other unpredictable occurrences. Downside, the team paying a buy in does not get to compete for their entry. Upside, the teams attending have an additional $130 added to payout.
Joe Bass will only cancel a tournament if road or lake conditions require it. If due to weather related conditions you do not feel comfortable driving, DON’T you’re entry will not be forfeited. If it is required entries will be transferred. Cancelled tournaments will be made up at the fall make up tournament. If you have pre-entered, and decide that conditions are unfavorable for you to attend please call the division tournament director and let him know you will not be attending.
Joe Bass Team Trail will qualify teams to the Bassmaster Team Championship chosen from the Joe Bass Team Invitational finishers. If a team cannot attend the B.A.S.S. Team Championship teams/anglers will be selected until all positions are filled.
No. The last tournament in any of our divisions can be fished without any membership fees. This is your opportunity to come see Joe Bass Team Trail in action. With that said no incentive’s will be paid to non-members.
