My previous post has been locked (?) so I started this one for an update. After consideration of the criticisms I received from some posters that I considered valid and constructive, I reported my experience to the managing authority for the launch. They have agreed to install new signage at the docks explaining how a courtesy dock is supposed to be used. They will also start enforcing the current reservation system that is in place on Bass Club tournaments (or other large gatherings) to mitigate issues like this. So for all of you other anglers who run into the issue of "dock blocking" by tournament participates try contacting the managing authority for the launch and see if that helps (like I should have done in the first place).
