Title: ATTENTION BASS TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR, PROMOTER, HOLDER TYPES
Post by: djkimmel on November 22, 2010, 10:39:33 PM
I HAVE NOT DECIDED IF I WILL TRY THIS FOR 2012 YET. I'LL POST AN UPDATE IF I CAN GET SOME SAFE SOFTWARE SETUP TO DO SOMETHING USEFUL AND BETTER THAN WHAT IS OUT THERE NOW.

I will be coming up with some type of look up process for www.michiganbasstournaments.com for the 2011 season so please, send me your Michigan tournament schedules as soon as you have them set so they will be included. I expect MichiganBassTournaments.com to be the main source for Michigan bass tournament schedules by next year with many potential new entrant anglers finding your opens and circuits by the time I'm done linking and promoting it.

I also own basstournaments.net so if you have tournaments outside of Michigan, I expect to be developing a method for anglers to find tournaments anywhere between now and next year sometime also, so please include them if you want them on a great domain that should end up with lots of traffic as I develop it.

Please email your schedules and as much information as you can provide about entry fee, separate big bass, membership fee if applicable, format, date, body of water, launch ramp, tournament times, check in time and contact information for participants including a phone number, email and website - all that apply - to NEW EMAIL ADDRESS COMING IF I DO THIS FOR 2012

If you can send them in a table or lined up somehow that would be a big help. If you prefer to use snail mail and the old paper method, I hope you don't have a ton of tournaments ;D please mail to:

If you have non-bass tournaments you care to get more exposure for, I can accommodate other types too if the demand is great enough through additional domains that I will develop to meet demand. So send those to if you have them.

Real men of genius!

Here's to you Mr. BASS TOURNAMENT PROMOTER/HOLDER TYPES
 ;D

Announcer:  Today we salute you Mr. Bass Tournament Promoter.  While most of us go home after work and watch the news, you log-on to every web fishing forum in your region, trying to recruit one more angler to fish your Saturday morning tournament.  Promising 100% payback, prize raffles, and food after the tournament, you believe your tournament is the Bassmaster Classic, if only people would fish it.

Guy singing in the background:  I love to fish!

Announcer:  Not satisfied with your 10 boat turn-out last week, you will do whatever it takes to get to 100 boats in the next event, even if it means calling everyone in your contact list to make sure they are fishing, twice.  Fish Fishburne wouldn't take no for an answer, and neither will you.

Guy singing in the background:  I've got the best payback around!

Announcer:  So crack open an ice cold Bud Light Mr. Bass Tournament Promoter

UPDATE 2013: This is still on hold for me due to other high priority projects. I believe a few people are trying to put lists together. I will get to this. Tournament Directors will have to help when I do though - there are way too many circuits and tournaments now for me to enter all of them or even try to track them all down.

IMPORTANT SUGGESTION: When you do list your tournaments in a post anywhere on GreatLakesBass.com - AFTER you create the new post look to the bottom of the post for the LINK TO  CALENDAR link. Click on that and you can select the date(s) of your event - add a short calendar title such as Big Time Open and save it.

This will list your tournament on the forum Calendar (http://www.greatlakesbass.com/forum/index.php?action=calendar) making it much easier for anglers to find the events. PLUS, the calendar feature automatically feeds linked events to other parts of the website where more people and Search Engines can pick up your posted events better! Thanks!

UPDATE 7/2017: Well... this is a project I've really wanted to do but haven't come up with the money to pay someone to do it right, or found the software that will do what I want without a ton of development work time I don't have... I still want to do it but it's a little moot for Michigan now kind of considering the new MDNR MFTIS application has all the Michigan bass tournaments on it. For now, I recommend that for sure: www.michigan.gov/fishingtournaments (http://www.michigan.gov/fishingtournaments)

Also, don't forget and miss the tip above about linking your tournament to the GreatLakesBass.com forum calendar. It's fast and easy to do this additional step to get your tournaments more notice faster. See the post just above.
