Title: 2017 TBF Michigan State Championship July 16 Lake St. Clair UPDATED
Post by: djkimmel on March 01, 2017, 04:37:54 PM
The 2017 TBF of Michigan State Championship is Sunday, July 16 on Lake St. Clair out of Harley Ensign BAS. Blast off will be at 6:30 AM. All Michigan and Ontario waters are open. TBF of Michigan board decided to limit entries for the 2017 State Championship to members only.

Entry fees are $125* for boaters and $75* for co-anglers (*includes big bass). 2017 State Championship entries due by July 11. Mandatory pre-tournament meeting Saturday, July 15, 2017. Registration will be 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM registration on Saturday with the mandatory meeting starting at 6:00 PM. The meeting location will be at the Harley Ensign Memorial Public Access (after the BFL tournament).

10% of the entry fees will be held to cover tournament expenses (we are using the BFL weigh-in equipment and trailer for this tournament). A percentage of the entry fees may be put towards the entry fees for boaters and co-anglers who qualify for the TBF National Semi-Final.

Participants entering linked as a boater – co-angler pair will be assured of their respective boater or co-angler positions and participation. You will not fish with who you signed up with. You will go into the random draw. TBF of Michigan cannot guarantee those boaters who do not enter with a linked co-angler won’t be drawn with another boater though we will do our best to avoid this.

The top 12 TBF of Michigan members in the standings at the end of this state championship will qualify for the September 9-10, 2017 TBF National Semi-Final hosted by Michigan against the Ohio TBF on Michigan waters only out of Elizabeth Park.

Please note that TBF of Michigan decided to only allow members to fish this year's State Championship. Sorry for the confusion.

I have added information about the mandatory pre-tournament meeting above.

You know your old when you look at your bank balance and notice more money.  Then remember your Social Security Check was deposited yesterday.  :)

Wow! I can't wait until something like that happens to me!! I look at mine and it rarely goes up... even if someone would just mysteriously deposit a bunch of money in my account like it happens in the movies!!!

I did drive up to the ATM the other day and it didn't look right. It was right at my credit union and it didn't look tampered with so I tried to put my card in (needed some fishing money!!!) but it wouldn't go in?!? What the...!?!

I tried a couple times and suddenly the screen changed like the darn machine had just woke up or something... and a credit card popped out!!! Wow!! FREE credit cards!!! For an instant I thought I'd won a prize or maybe my credit union was trying a new promotion I hadn't heard about??

But no message popped up with a PIN number or anything like that. After the initial 'excitement' wore off I noticed it had an odd name on it. Figured someone got their card swallowed... but why did it pop out for me?? Who knows.

It was Sunday so I had to wait until the next day to drive back and turn it in. Someone was having a pain in the butt over this I imagine... I already don't put complete trust in all these machines having been with someone whose card was swallowed once at the worst time. I had one rip me off by cutting me short $20 before too, and that was fun trying to get my $20 back...
