2023 Season Ending BONUS Payouts
At the end of the Texas East Division tournament season two (2) major payouts will be made, Division Championship Points Payout Bonus and Super District BONUS.
Division Championship Points Payout
After the end of the tournament season the TOP-Points team in the division will receive the Division Championship Points Payout Bonus. This Bonus is based upon the number of teams we have in each tournament. Money’s are escrowed, $5 per team in the tournament, after each tournament for this payout. Example: $5 times 200 boats in the tournament will escrow $1000.00 towards the Division Championship Payout Bonus. Thus, 5 tournaments with 200 teams in each would result in a Championship Payout Bonus of $5000.00 at the end of the season.
Also, the Division Championship Points team will receive an automatic invitation to the Fishers of Men National Championship tournament to be held in 2024.
Teams will earn points, per tournament, based up their finishing position in the tournament. Plus, teams which attend the Friday night meeting will receive 50 points per tournament. Maximum points to be earned in tournament is 300 points. Thus, 1st place team will receive 300 points. 2nd place team will receive 299 points. 3rd place team will receive 298 points. So on….
District Championship - SUPER District BONUS
Teams fishing in 3 or more tournaments, plus finishing in the “top” 80% of the points field will be eligible to fish the District Championship tournament. Location and time for this tournament have yet to be set, but should be in the October time frame.
Should a Texas East Division team win this District championship, then an additional $5000, above the normal District Payouts, will be paid to the team.
Should a Texas East Division team not win the District Championship then the $5000 bonus will be paid to the TOP Placing Texas East Division team in the FOM National Championship tournament.
