Don't be overwhelmed by the rules. Please ask questions
A few questions answered.
No cash awards for 1st or second or third?
No. Charity event so ALL net proceeds go to the charities. The trophies are incredible. We urge you to click the link and see the quality and unique design. You'll be proud to display these.
But there is a cash award for longest bass?
Yup. That's a Calcutta where its winner take all. Boats and kayaks together.
Why is it limited entry?
The parking lot at Headwaters lake is limited. We can't take up the whole lot.
Doesn't the limited entry limit the money going to charity?
Unfortunately it does. We hope in the future we'll find a way to do better.
Is entry for each angler in the boat? Why?
Yes. Each angler must pay the entry fee. The money is going to charity. And each angler in the winning boats receives an incredible bronze, hand crafted trophy.
Is dinner paid for?
Absolutely. We have a great sponsor who has graciously paid for the awards dinner.
Can I bring a spouse or child to dinner?
Sure. If you don't mind, we'd like to ask you to pay for that person. Our sponsor has paid for the number of entries and the few support people, but not guests. Any additional payment for guests will go directly to the charities.
So....what about the 'fees' and proceeds?
100% of all net proceeds will be split evenly and given to each charity. The only 'fees' we have are for the use of Tourney X, Paypal and the cost of trophies. There is no admin fees or 10% off the top fees or any other shady fee. All work is being done voluntarily. The use of this website is donated. A breakdown of expenses and the money donated will be made public. Nothing to hide. We just want to introduce boaters to the CPR tournament format, create some fellowship and provide some donations to great local charities doing work we can see with our own eyes.
Man, these rules are long and precise, why?
These rules are a reflection of CPR tournament rules that have been in place for almost a decade. By using these rules, we not only have a fair event, but can introduce boaters to just how fair and 'cheat proof' a CPR event can be. We may as well start this thing rolling with iron clad rules.
Do I have to use the specific measuring board listed in the rules?
No. For this event, you may use any brand. As long as it meets the requirements in the rules. It has to have a bump fence/nose board/bump and cannot slide or fold, and must have 1/4" (one quarter inch) increments. If you have any questions, it's best to ask first than have an issue later on.
