50/50 Drawing,

Tickets for a 50/50 drawing will be sold during Registration. This helps pay for the costs to run the R&B.  
​​
Payback

The R & B Bass Circuit pays back 100%. Thus, every dollar that has been collected by all divisions throughout the season will be paid back at this event. Our account will have $0.00 after October 10.

​​Cost to participate is $100.

All R & B Bass Circuit tournaments pay back 1 spot for every 4 teams, with a maximum of 10 paid spots. Money has been added to the pot after each tournament and every dollar from the membership fee has also been added. To see how much has been collected, check out the Payback page.

A Big Bass Prize will be awarded each day.

Qualification

Classic Update​​

​​We have received phone calls over the past few weeks asking for clarification on how to qualify for the classic and how Super Saturday Tournaments can be used as regular season tournaments in the event a team does not make an appearance at all three super events. Due to the way I had it typed and the confusion in our intent we have decided to make an adjustment. As directors we have discussed it and have made the following adjustment.

1) Any Team fishing a total of six Regular Season Tournaments has qualified for the classic. One Pay Skip is allowed!

2) Any Team fishing a total of three Super Saturday Tournaments has qualified for the classic. No Pay Skips allowed!

3) Any team that fishes either one Super Saturday Tournaments and five Regular Season Tournaments – or – * two Super Saturday Tournaments and four Regular Season Tournaments has qualified for the classic. NOTE: One Pay Skip is allowed in for regular season Tournaments. Points from the super Saturday tournaments are reduced by ½ to match the points awarded for a regular season tournament in determining boat starting order for the classic.​​

​* The modification of the existing rule​
Sorry for the Confusion
Jim Graham​
However, Tournament Directors do not count. If directors are fortunate to finish in the top 50%, they will not take a team out of the tournament. Hence, in the example above, if directors finished 5th place overall, the top 27 teams would actually qualify.
Rules & Boat Order

There will be no rule changes from the regular-season tournaments with the exception of starting order and length.

​​For teams fishing all 6 tournament in one division the starting order will be determined by the final Standings. The team standing in 1st place in the division with the highest average turnout will be boat 1. The team standing in 1st place in the division with the second highest average will be boat 2 and so on... Teams fishing 4 tournaments in one division and four in other divisions will start at the back and after all teams that have fished 6 regular tournaments. The order will then follow the same procedure as before by final standards and division with the highest average turnout.

Since Registration and the Pre-Tournament meeting will be conducted Friday night, teams should launch immediately upon arrival. Boat #1 will take off promptly at 8:00. If a team is not present when their number is called, they will be sent to the back of the line! To​​ insure an 8:00 take off​​, it is vital all teams arrive early.​​

The tournament will be 8 hours long each day.

Launch

Take off will be held at The Gunn Lake State Park Ramp each day. A Michigan DNR Recreational Passport is Required to use the facility. Click on the link for details and directions.
OFF-LIMITS
