Hi Steve,

Just asking if the Megabream and Queensland Open are still one the cards for 2013 , as they are not on the calendar.

Cheers
Scott.

Queensland Open - yes. Can't set a date until Marine Queensland set the dates to the Manly Show.

Megabucks - no. Don't see the need for yet another teams comp on the calendar.

Hi Steve

had a look at the calenders and noticed that the bream classic grand final at Mallacoota on the bream tour calender shows that it is on the 5/6 of Nov, yet on the classic calender it shows that the G.F is on the 2/3 of Nov. Can you please let us know which is the correct date.

thanks
Borgy

Hi Steve
Why not do the Megabuck as a single event same as the aus open, with the view of possible setup of single event series down the track.

Borgy,

It's a midweek event between the Kayak final and ABT Individual GF, so the 5-6 is the date.

Franko,

We'll see what the event suppost is like for the Aus Open - on a weekend, big public weigh-in etc. Should draw a crowd.

There is no excuses this year it's on a weekend, not during the holidays and it's a great opportunity for anglers to give their sponsors great exposure at a great venue for the weighin. There's every chance a 40 boat field will contest this great event this year, hopefully we will see a lot more interstaters coming to give it ago, the single angler format is great, angler against angler on a great waterway.

Franko,

I agree, but we'll see if making the changes anglers have asked for equates to a bigger field. Plenty of anglers don't like getting too far out of their comfort zone.

All are welcome - that's why it's called an Open!

Cheers,

ABT staff, could you please clarify the amount of anglers that qualify for the Bream GF by the way of AOY points.
Thankyou.

GF Qualification.

1 - Defending Champion.= 1
8 x 4 - qualifiers at each event = 32
7 x AOY places make up the remaining anglers = 40 total.

Remember that any event-based qualifiers that decline their invites will go to the next down in AOY points.

Just win the Derwent again - you'll be sweet.

Cheers,

SM (with his ABT hat on).

Ok than thanks, it's just that at the beginning of this thread you stated 4 top x 8 qual =32 + 8 AOY = 40. I reckon you mean 7 + defending GF angler which makes up the 8 therefore 40 positions. But in the ABT rules under the GF section it states AOY top 9 (on left side) + previous GF winner that's makes 42. But also says AOY -7 + 1 + 32 = 40. All is good must be a mistake.
BTW I think you look better with your other hat on the one with the two letter logo.

Mango,

I summary - yes, there's a typo in the rules that the guys will fix up.

Just confirming that the Grand Final field will be 40 boats - not that either of us look like making it ATM.
