Instead of scheduling another date in 2019 for a championship I would like to award the AOY top 5 in the format listed below. I believe that will keep more anglers interested in the hunt for the AOY race. We are going to a 4 tournament format for this series which I also believe will help keep guys in the competition and not bleed over into next year's competitions.

I will guarantee $2000 minimum in the AOY fund so that the minimum paid to our top 3 AOY finishers would be.
1st. $1000+Free Entry in 2019
2nd. $600
3rd. $400
4th. Two Kistler Rods
5th. Two $25 Gift Certificates from Papa's Baits
More competitors equalls higher AOY payouts in December.

Points will be awarded 100 for 1st, 99 for 2nd, 98 for 3rd and so on. A tie in the points race will be settled by combining overall weight for the series.

All Amateur Competition No Lake Fork Guides who have guided for pay on Lake Fork in 2018 or Tour/Elite Pros
