BREAM 2012 Preliminary dates

Post by Steve Morgan » Wed Nov 16, 2011 4:10 pm

Guys, these are pretty close to 100%. Won't be guaranteed until the TAG goes to print (16th Dec), but it'll help you with your leave planning!

Quick comments:

• Aus Open was planned to move to March, but this won't take place until 2013 (scheduling conflicts). Boater-only event with observers.
• Qld Open moves from Mar/Apr to October. Teams format most likely out of Manly.
• No more Super Series - all Qualifiers the same (2 days, individual bags).
• Megabucks in Forster combined with the BETS event and NSW Kayak state titles. All Megabucks entrants will have the BETS entry fee paid as part of their entry.
• All events live-streamed with Live Scoreboards as per the Grand Final trials.
• The old Qld Open slot will now be a Tinnie and Tackle Show Invitational event.
• For the Tassie Tourists, there's a Tas Classic the weekend before the Derwent at St Helens. You can still do your Tassie Trip with your mate and fish two events - just that one of them is a Classic. There'll be a Kayak event mid week in between.
• There's an extra Qualifier in QLD this year, because that's where the GFs will be. Next year, when the GFs are in Victoria, there'll be an extra qualifier down there and so forth....
• Boater entry fee will be either $200 or $250 (inc GST). Non boater will still be $100.
• National AOY will be the best 4 out of 8 qualifiers.
• There'll be 5 qualifying slots per event, with the remainder of the GF fields being made up of defending champions from the previous year and by working down the AOY list.
• Grand Final winner gets an AFC slot. Balance of AFC slots will come from a mix of AOY and rankings. Could be up to 4 or 5 new AFC slots available depending on AFC sponsorship/number of teams.

Cheers,

SM

Steve,

My concern with Megabucks being combined with the BETS event on the same weekend.
Is there may be a clash with Team Sponsors and or Team Partners.

ie. If l was fishing the BETS Series under one particular Sponsor with a particular partner, and my Megabucks entry was covered by another Sponsor to fish with another partner,
Where would this leave me?

Also does this mean that there could be potentialy say 40 to 50 extra tournament boats fishing the first day of Megabucks, that aren't even fishing the event?

Regards
Mark

Mark,

I have no idea of your deals with your sponsors, but I'm sure that you can reported as Team A (Big MH and Angler X) in the Megabucks and Team B (Big MH and Angler X) in the BETS results.

Yep - there may be plenty of extra boats on the water. All part of the challenge. It's a big lake out there .....

Cheers,

MH,

OK. I re-read your question.

Do you mean that you usually fish Megabucks with the better half and BETS with a Legend (owner)?

I'm pretty sure that you're allowed to substitute team members in BETS if that situation arises.

I have no answer for your status with the missus, however.

Hi Steve,
does the Aust Open contribute to GF qualification and/or AOY points? and is the QLD a qualifier for the Teams GF?.

Thanks
Drew

Aus Open - Rankings Points (YES - same points as Grand Final). GF Qualification - nope.

Qld Open - Yes - qualifier for Classic Championship and Yes, Teams Ranking Points (Same scale as old Super Series).

Any chance off GF qualification for AUS open next year after? Just the winnner as there isnt many in it. Just thought it would get a coupple more to go in it and boost the prize money and give the NSW fishos a summer bite to have a crack at qualifying. Most are in a colder water bite.
