BASS Electric Caledar 2013

Post by Simon Goldsmith » Fri Dec 07, 2012 11:35 am


Here's the draft calendar for 2013. Some of the changes for next year are as follows:

* Reduction in overall number of events (25 in 2012, 18 in 2013)- this will mean prizes aren't spread as thinly across the event. Bigger prize packs will be the result
* One event per venue
* New venues added
* 6 events (2 day events) to have higher ranking points and a $50 option up fee
* Qualification for The Convention to be participation based rather than performance based. It'll work as follows:
[*]Win an event = qualification
[*]Fish three events during the year (you must catch a fish in at least one them)= qualification

We believe that this qualification process will enable anglers to plan better for their year, will see more anglers taking part and logistically from our end it will make our life easier also. In the end the best angler will still win, get the prizes and cudos that comes with it. The qualification for the convention won't change this.

* We're also going to tighten up on the fish welfare/condition issue so we don't have poor conditioned fish weighed in.

You'll notice there's a few events that still need organisers for, if you're willing and able to run one let us know ASAP (the TAG and calendar go to print next week, so let me know by Tuesday if you want to get your name in the magazine).

with the quaifcation for convention does a 2 day event count as 2 events ??
for eg- I do Borumba (2 day event ) and Lake MacDonald (1 day event) does that qualify me for convention if I have caught fish at 1 of them ??

G'day Paul,
The way the 2 day events have been run in the past have been as one event. However that does not alter the fact if you get a fish either day you have still caught a fish and therefore qualify if you do another event. It would still mean you have fished three days.
