Lake Fork Fall Competition - Where the Weekend Angler Can Compete!

Instead of scheduling another date in 2017 for a championship, I would like to award the AOY top 5 in the format listed below. I believe that will keep more anglers interested in the hunt for the AOY race. We are going to a 4 tournament format for this series which I also believe will help keep guys in the competition and not bleed over into next years competitions.

I will guarantee $2000 minimum in the AOY fund so that the minimum paid to our top 3 AOY finishers would be.
1st. $1000+Free Entry in 2017
2nd. $600
3rd. $400
More competitors equals higher AOY payout's in December.

Points will be awarded 100 for 1st, 99 for 2nd, 98 for 3rd and so on. A tie in the points race will be settled by combining overall weight for the series.

We are also dropping the entry fee to $110 per team which includes BB. This will hopefully encourage some anglers who either feel their skill levels do not warrant a $160 entry or for those, like many in this economy, that simply cannot afford it.
For those who like to play a little harder we have the Side Pot entry for an additional $50 for those who want to compete for higher stakes.

All Amateur Competition - No Lake Fork Guides who have guided for pay on Lake Fork in 2016 or Tour/Elite Pros
$30 Membership per Angler
50% of membership goes to AOY Bonus
$110 Team Entry Includes BB
80% Payout at Ramp paying 1 in 5 of which 5% transfers to AOY Bonus Pay
All Anglers are in this pot.

(Want to Compete for a Bigger Payout)
$50 Side Pot Pays 90% 1 in 5 - This has been very popular with my Lake Fork anglers.

AOY Race and Bonus Pay competition for Teams Who Compete in All Four Qualifiers
BONUS PAYOUT STRUCTURE (Cash payouts for AOY are guaranteed)
1st Place - Free Entry 2017+50% of AOY Pot (min $1,000)
2nd Place - 30% of AOY Pot (min $600)
3rd Place - 20% of AOY Pot (min $400)
4th Place - 2 Kistler Rods
5th Place - 2 $25 Gift Certificates from Papa's Baits

I would like to extend this prize list to 10 places in prizes.  If you or your company would like to participate, please let me know what products you would like to share with our anglers.
