​​At least one member must be present for the pre-tournament meeting held approximately 20 minutes before take-off.


Participants are expected to know and adhere to all Rules.

No rule is more important to the R & B Bass Circuit than #9: Safety, good sportsmanship, and courtesy will be expected and enforced. Failure to comply may result in disqualification.

This will also be enforced during Registration and the Weigh-in. Please be conscientious of language during these times. Frequently, neighboring children attend and look at us in awe. Have a positive influence.

Absolutely no alcohol or illegal narcotics are allowed in the boat or during Registration & W​eigh-in. Anyone under the influence will not be allowed to participate that day or in future R & B events. If necessary, authorities will be called

Boat Order​

​Boat order will be determined by random draw for first 40 entrants, after which, teams will be numbered by order of registration. Any team who registers during or after the pre-tournament meeting will not draw for a number. They will be deemed the call boat.
