Trying to put together the best tournament possible for you guys
« on: December 19, 2009, 10:12:01 AM »

I am running the ROI Camp & Cruise Lakeshore Elite Series this year, I have 20years of tournament experience and have fished just about every tournament that has come and gone through the years! I am not going to make inflated statements to you guys about payouts or prizes in these tournaments - I will only give you facts and  what will happen!not pipe dreams of the someday we might be able too's -Last year the ROI tournament were run POORLY ( I am not saying anything bad about what Luke was doing - He just didn't have the experience needed to run a tournament  - He is better at getting sponsors participation) So here is the FACTS about this years ROI.

1. The best dam run tournament that I can do.
2. Keep it simple ( Sign-up -fish -weigh-in -win your money and have fun doing it )
3. Give back MORE MONEY than they paid in entry fees  ie. over a 100% payback!!
4. Weigh-ins - will be consistant - and professional ran - that's what you and I expect.
5. I will not disrespect or talk trash about anyother tournament circut - No one intends to run a bad circuit some just do it better than others.
6. I will not take money out of the entry fees to pay for me running these tournaments. In my position the more guys come and fish and hopfully support the sponsor the more it will help me - ie. boats sales, service and accessories - that's were the gain is for myself.

So there you have it guys! plain and simple -  I want the same as every guy out there - something better. With hard work I know that's what you will get.

Also Please support  ( Lake Drives tournaments ) They are working very hard to give you guys a Great payout !!!! that's why you will see that their 3 tournaments and our 4 tournament do not over lap on each other - Between theirs and ours, guys will have a full years worth of great paying  - well run tournaments.

the ROI Camp & Cruise Elite Series will be a BassCat Quest sponored events

Quest Summary: Quest is tournament incentive program at no cost to original owners of a 2000 model and newer Bass Cat boat. Quest is also available, for a $100.00 membership fee, to all other Bass Cat owners.

For owners of a 1999 model year and older Bass Cat boat, there is a membership fee of $100.00. This also applies for all transfers fees on Lifetime Warranty hulls, and those used boat owners. This membership lasts as long as you own this/your Bass Cat boat, there are no further fees or memberships.

There are two levels of Quest for 2009. The Double Up, and the standard Quest program, for Quest events with 60 participants or 30 Boats in team/draw competitions there will be a $250.00 incentive. Tournaments with 60 Boats in team/draw competitions and/or 120 anglers can accrue $500.00 for each tournament win under guidelines established below. Events with over 100 Boats and/or 200 anglers can achieve $1,000.00 in incentive monies. Each Owner may qualify for up to $2,000.00 or two major wins, in annual Quest incentives when participating in local and regional events, including the Double Up limit. Each Individual is qualified for two Double Up wins

Do you think you will hit 30 boats? And if you do can i pay for the quest money after the event? I would hate to pay the $100.00 to Bass Cat and never see 30 boats show up, it would be a waste of $100.00. If i am right ROI is the only Quest tournament in the area right.

ok senkoluvr,

I believe but can not confirm that ROI maybe the only BassCat Quest tournament in this area. I guess what that means is that that you should be talking with every guy you know, who has a BassCat to come fish the ROI tournaments, I know there are enough BassCat boats in this area to get to that 30 number with them alone not count everyone else who many have a different brand of boats. If you are getting me to come out and say how many boat we will draw at theses tournaments - sorry - I can't -  it is up to you and the fellow bass anglers of west michigan to determined that.

Well, instead of asking how many boats we will get (not calling anyone out but it just seems to be a common thing to do for a lot of people) every angler interested in MAKING money should show up to the ROI Elite series on the lakeshore.  The more guys that show up instead of saying "how many boats will you get" the more boats we will have.  It's easy really.  Show up to the tourney...bring your friends, add to the boat count.  It's a great fishery (no matter where you choose to fish) and anyone can get on them and win.  So come on out and fish!!   ;D

I wouldn't think they would let you pay the 100 bucks and file a quest claim after the fact...That would be like throwing your Ante in After you see your hand in Poker.....You could check with them to verify though...Your boat has to be registered in their Quest Database in order to qualify...

You can check out the Bass Cat website for other qualifying tournaments and more information on Quest....They have a link for Quest info....
Here is a line from the Quest regulations you may want to look into since Camp and Cruise is the title sponsor..
. Bass Cat title events or Bass Cat Dealer specific events (including various charity events) do not qualify for Sanctions or Incentives as those are already supported with product by Bass Cat Boats.

These tournaments are "Automatically" in the Quest program with no action for approval required...

 Tournaments under automatic Quest sanction as of this printing in 2009 are: Anglers Choice Teams and Couples, BASS Outdoors (Weekend) Series, Media Bass, 100% BASS, BassMaxx, Team Trails of Mississippi, BFL events, TBF State Championship Events, Internet (IBBT, BFHP & BBC) Rally's designated on website, and B.A.S.S. State Federation Championships,

Motocross:

this statement is true:
. Bass Cat title events or Bass Cat Dealer specific events (including various charity events) do not qualify for Sanctions or Incentives as those are already supported with product by Bass Cat Boats.

But Camp & Cruise is not supporting the ROI tournaments with any BassCat products
( YET!!! )  LOL

I willl call Ivan at Basscat tomorrow and find out for sure.

Well senkolur that is the real question now!! I have wavered back and forth in my mind about what way to go - Leave Lake Michigan open or Close it /???? 

If I leave the big lake open will that keep some guys from coming - because they think they can't compete with guys who run.

Or if I close it - does it make the tournaments more even knowing that everyone has to fish the same lake.

What do you guys think?  This should being interesting to hear and cause a huge debate over LOL

I VOTE FOR OPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

ESPECIALLY WHEN THE GRAND RIVER TOURNEY IS LAUNCHING OUT OF HARBOR ISLAND WHICH IS MAYBE A 10 min. RIDE TO LAKE MICHIGAN.  NOT TO MENTION IT WILL BE GOOD PRACTICE FOR WHEN THE BFL COMES BACK IN 2011 8)

RUNNING IS A CONCIOUS DECISION AND ANYONE WITH A BOAT HAS THE CHOICE - the arguement can flipped around as well guys with the smaller boats can go in places the bigger boats can't so where does it end.

 I say close it. That will get the guys that dont want to or cant (due to small, old, cheap) boats that cant or shouldnt even think about going out on lake michigan. Dont get me wrong, I think that if you can run and win a tourney from a different lake than that is the smart thing to do but i am guessing that most guys dont have the boat to do it. I for one have a smaller boat and dont think I should be out on the big water no matter what. So I say close it to the lake you are fishing.
