New Business: Tom Melowitz made a motion, which passed unanimously, that one of our 2005 club tournaments be a Team Tournament.  The specifics of the motion are: 

One of our 2005 club tournaments to be a Team Tournament with a 5 fish limit for each team.  The Tournament Director will determine which tournament will be the Team Tournament.

At the meeting prior to the Team Tournament or by contacting the tournament director prior to the meeting, each club member must declare themselves as a boater or not boater.  Late entries past the meeting are not allowed.  

 The process for determining a team:

  1. All boaters names in one hat
  2. All non boaters names in another hat
  3. Draw a boater  matched with a non boater: Draw 1 is first out, etc
  4. When boaters are exhausted continue drawing boaters for blast off position.  The remaining boaters may fish alone or team with another boater.  If they team up they can use the low draw number for the team.  Boaters not teaming with other boaters may fish with a guest but the guest must immediately release any fish caught. 

Scoring:  Each member of the winning team gets 50 points, 2nd place gets 49, etc  

If either member of a team drops out between the meeting and the tournament:  The remaining member if a  non boater is automatically teamed with the lowest draw number without a partner.  If the non boater drops out the remaining boater may fish alone, team up with another boater or bring a guest.
