Thanks guys for ALL the various responses to the pay-out table :

I think we are heading in the right direction and it is still way early in the year!

I would love to be able to state 100% + payout at the ramp ( That is MY Goal ) for those of you wondering.

I want to have a fully sponsored Classic!!! at this point it can't be done. but with HARD work and a lot of determination it will be.

right now this is the best i can do.

JohnBoy,

I down loaded the attachment : The tournament pay out table : and this series seems to be paying out way more money - not just a little more ( on a $90 tournament ) than anyone else I can find, anywhere though-out Michigan. As for the stated 100% + pay out - I can't find anywhere that they posted that said it was at the ramp. The flyer on the attachment shows where all the money is going, and who else has a $10 membership - I don't want to sound like I am talking for the ROI guys but DAM it sure looks like their trying hard to make a good tournament " Thanks Guys "

Exactly the point that ROI has been trying to make, that no one seems to want to believe.

BELIEVE!!

Mac Bass
you were there two, in the 80's when Redman would pull 150 boats as a draw indiv,  then team Mi would pull 150 as well as tri state with a waiting list full at 150.
   Redman would start in Ind at wawasee,  the Grand, Saginaw Bay, Muskegon,  Wixom later replaced by St Clair.  At that time there were more guys or equal from the west side fishing.  but with todays schedule of BFL and all tourneys over there It's definitly an east side tourney whom fish smallies all the time.
this is always fun but it doesn't represent the all- around fisherman in Mi.



I remember those days..We used to get all of the Redman and vienna sausages that we could ever use at check in.... ;D.....Don't forget the Coldwater chain...My buddy cashed a check there with 6lbs.... :o

I remember the days of fishing the Grand and everyone would run to Muskegon and then we would go to Muskegon and everyone would run to Mona, White, or the Grand.....I agree with you on the BFL schedule and I only live 20 mins from LSC...We fished the Grand on my first year back and I really enjoyed flipping and pitching for LM for a change...

I do think the westside tournaments should have open running if safety permits but that is just my opinion and I am not running the tourneys...Either way and whatever decision it is fair to everyone because everyone has to fish the same conditions....I just like the added options...

Your computer, maybe your work and even some of the computers along the way on the Internet save a copy (cached) version of pages you've look are recently, so often when you access the same page again, sometimes for up to a week, you are looking at a copy of the page, not the original on the remote web server.

You can try to force a refresh - to reload the page from the web server, but some networks have in-between servers that won't let you easily do that to save time and bandwidth. There are also differences between some of the browsers in how they cache pages and for how long.

I have 'cache-buster' code on some of my pages or parts of pages, but there are many things that happen along the way of delivery of a web page. What you see isn't always the same as what someone else sees depending on your situation. Some work networks / proxy servers don't update previous loaded pages for as long as a week apart.

That's okay. I have to have other people do most of my car repair or fix my lawnmower... or my furnace. I can't figure that stuff out...
