    Fish and Ski Challenge! Just for fun

    OK here's an idea, what do y'all think?

    2015 BBC Fish and Ski Challenge

    What? Like a contingency program for F&S owners, let's see who can weigh the heaviest 5-fish bag in a qualifying event in 2015. Just for fun, and for the general encouragement of F&S owners. Other guys have contingency programs linked to a particular brand of a particular product, this proposal one is not brand-specific but limited to F&S boats.

    How does it work? Fish a qualifying event, and post your results, with a picture, here on the BBC F&S boats forum and that's it. One phony certificate and/or other prize to be mailed out at the end of the year by somebody, maybe.

    Whats a "qualifying event"? Any tournament with certified scale and results posted online. It could be a BBC Rally or club tournament, BFL, ABA, charity team bass derby, etc. as long as somebody weighs your fish on a official event scale and the full results including weights and names are posted online. For example, if you and your buddy caught 30+ pounds fishing Golden Pond, that doesn't count (not a qualifying event, no certified scales, no tournament results online) but if you fished a 6-man club tournament, and your club has a scale and a public website where all the results are posted for all to see, then you can post your results here with a picture and have a shot at the BBC F&S Challenge prize, as well as the admiration of our internet community.

    Other stuff: No entry fee. Entrant must be a BBC member (with email address verified per the rules of the "for sale" boards).Entrantmust currently own a F&S boat, Fish must be caught from a F&S boat. If it makes sense 2 prizes will be awarded, one for team events and one for individual events. Fish must be black bass (micropterus) -- largemouth, smallmouth, spotted, etc. Enter as often as you like. Other rules may apply,


    So, what do you think? Sound like fun? I'm sure I forgot important details, so comment away! If this Challenge is acceptable, I'll ask the moderator to pin an official announcement, rules, etc. to the top..

    Awesome fellas!

    MC I started fishing in Indiana... If I caught a keeper I was happy. If I caught 2 it was great and if I caught 3, lights out! Were you fishing in your Nitro?

    Hey Folks, its mid July... Dont forget to post your tournament finishes for the BBC Fish and Ski Challenge. Include a link to a public website were the weights are verified and remember it only counts if you were out there competing in your Fish and Ski!

    So far the leader is ... me! with our 12.2 lbs sack from the BBC Potomac Rally IX. C'mon, I know somebody's caught em better. Get your entry in!
