Tournament Payout preferences
« on: February 05, 2006, 03:49:53 PM »

Sorry for all the posts about open tournaments!   :-\'  (Please bear with me!)

I'm trying to gather info for an open my club is putting on in June, but hopefully ALL clubs can benefit form the information gathered and get more boats at their opens!

Thanks for your input!!! ;D

Even though I like team events to be a little more towards the fun, it has to be worth it if you place to make a little more than you spend or break even to the real cost since I don't like fishing just to get my entry back in most events - maybe 1 or possibly 2 small events a year I'll fish the lower end, but I normally prefer to do this in my back yard.

I think last year we paid out $2000 for first, $800 for second, $600 for third, then I get kinda rusty on the details.? I know we paid down to about 8th place, with that being $150, or the entry fee back.? This year Blakstr1 had the great idea to give away 2 FishHedz masks for the last place paid.? Should be cool.

Should clarify, the Fish Hedz will be given to the final pay-out spot, probably 8th place or so, not last place... just a clarification of terms..

It will be cool though, Fish Hedz are a great product which I stand behind 100%, cutting edge and nothing else like it on the market, should be seen as a terrific prize with good worth.

yeah, that's right, last PAID place.  If it was just last place, me and Blake would be in contention for it. ;D

Another good idea might be to give 2 free raffle tickets per early entry we receive in the mail...incentive to enter and enter early which helps us out tremendously...

If we did pay for last, I want my prizes for the last few years we never received!! ;D
