2018 Classic Information

 Classic Information

·       The Classic is an entry free tournament that is determined by the point standings from the Open Tournaments.

·       At the conclusion of the season the top 50% of the participating teams, that have fished 3 or more events,  will be invited to fish the Classic.  The number of participants will be rounded up.  However the total number of participants will not exceed 25 boats.  An example:  If 50% of a 19 boat field is 9.5, 10 boats will qualify for the Classic.  The top finishing boat, at the last tournament, that didn't qualify for the classic will be eligible.  We will also randomly draw one boat that has fished 3 or more events and they will also be invited to the classic.  

·       The payouts are determined by the size of the A.O.Y. registered field.

·       $10.00 from each entry is put towards the Classic Payout.

·      The Classic will be governed under the DBN Tournament Rules and Regulations.

2019 Classic $10 from each Open Entry is used to fund the Classic Payout.  The Opens are the five Points Tournaments that are scheduled beginning May 12th.  This Payout schedule is based on an estimated 30 boats for each of the five tournaments.  Therefore the total entries received would be 150 which is equal to $1500.00 available for payout.
