win a boat tourneys
« on: November 11, 2010, 04:42:11 AM »

Ok, maybe I'm going a little overboard here, I blame pwi, and if I am, dan remove this post.  I see a lot of tourneys where 1st place is a boat. You have to win agianst locals ans then regionals. If you can do it all, you get a boat.  I then look at our season....  why not get 60 guys with 30 boats.  Pay the same 100 and have 60k in the pot. 30k to the winners, be it a boat or just cash, then divide up the other 30k depending on where you finish.
Just my random drunken thought, but I know how excited we all are when our friend wins one of these boat tourneys, or even comes close.  Same 30 boats every week and you become friends.  You would always have a friend win unless you win yourself.
Opinions????

hre is my take on this if you take 60 guys at 100.00 you are about 54.000 short of your 60k....and with todays economy can we get 60 guys at 1000.00 each to fish.

Awsome, that should have said for 20 weeks. Like a league format. Not bad math just a lack of ability to read what I wrote before hitting the send button

It sure would be a pain to split a boat payout with your partner. Do you want the Port or Starbord?

There are a couple of ways to handle it. One, they sell the boat (or certificate), and split the money. Another way to handle it is that if one partner doesn't have a boat, he buys out the partner at an agreed upon price. These are two that come to mind. 

If you go to some of the bass fishing boards that have large classified "child boards", you will usually see several boat package certificates for sale. These are usually prize boat certificates.

I have also seen prize boats "auctioned" off right at the tournament site to the highest bidder.

All the math looks good to me. ;D

Original song and lyrics by "MadWags"

What's with the news these days on the TV and the radio. Can't find the truth amongst the lies. Some talking head that claims to live their life in a better way, says I have to compromise. But now there's something on the rise. Truth has opened up my eyes. There's no running from your dirty lies. You can't avoid the truth. I'll no longer close my eyes.

Hey Wags, that wouldn't be a trio of Tracker certs that you're referring to, would it? From a certain three days of fishing in southern Kentucky, at the end of April?

probably taxed on 50 sell it for 30.   hope you can declare the loss.   Only chance I will have is if the DK open gives a boat away.

We're about 18,000 members short of something like that. Tell your neighbors. Tell strangers!
