Its the evolution of the show basically.. the original show was called the Summit Cup Series and it involved the original 24 anglers. The 2nd year, the added the Selects.. whose winners got the chance to fish in the Summit Cup events. This year, they added a points format to both I believe.. which will allow Select anglers to migrate to the Summit Cup by points as well as winning Select events. It will also eliminate anglers from the Summit Cup events. Byron Velvick was involved in the original Summit Cup events.. but because of injury he hasn't competed this year at all. They are giving him a waver, but other anglers that haven't faired well in the competitions are about to get eliminated. I hope I have all this right, but I think I do.
