    Thanks for the early schedule. It looks like it is going to be a great year. I am very excited to have Fishing Creek thrown in to the mix. I think it will be fun, and who knows what might get caught out of there.:wink:

    Before we were open to any mumber of competitors fishing from 1 boat as long as it was within regulations.We have dropped that in favor of only 4 maximum persons per boat.8 rods will still give a boat of 4 2 rods apeice.We were gonna drop it to 6 rods per boat to get in line with Cabelas Rules,we opted for 8 instead.
    I am in the works to get our club joined up with Cabelas to be King Kat Qualifiers.The paperwork has been submitted to them,just waiting to hear back,hopefully that will be soon and I can make an announcement on that.
    One thing that will have to happen when we become a Qualifying series is,only 2 people per boat will quaify for the Classic.That will be the Captain of the boat and 1 person of his chosing from the boat.Only 2 can qualify unless under 16 years old or over 65 or be disabled/handicapped and then a 3rd will quaify.I hope I am not mispeaking on that part,I will know more soon.If a Team has already quailfyed it will drop down to the next available Team.The Top 2 teams qualify from each tourney by the way.You still will be required to fish/enter at least 1 Cabelas Qualifier though.
    Moe info on all that will come soon though,when and if we are approved.That is the main reason for some of the changes though,to get better in line with their rules,who knows maybe next year we will go total Cabelas rules to avoid any conflict in various club rules.
    Hope this helps out Jeff.

    Marty, thanks for the info! If I can get a hold of another boat, I am hoping to be able to fish all the Wateree and the Monty touneys. Good luck with the Cabelas deal, hope that goes through! That would be great for your club!

    Thanks Marty and Jeff for getting the schedule out so early. I'm looking foward to fishing them all. Did you guys decide not to go with the points system this year or is that still a work in progress? I like all the rule changes aspecially the live fish rule. See you guys on the water.
