2017 Lake Fork Fall Teams Competition Where The Weekend Angler Can Compete

Instead of scheduling another date in 2017 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 2017
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.
