  4. Hey Dex What we need is Nick to come on here, have a few drinks and give him a keyboard, Then we will really get some info on Thrillseeker.
  5. I am not part of the pro ams but do get these same questions asked to us as well with our events. It is very hard to police this rule. it is hard enough to police the rules that are in place now and with all the protests and disqualifications that they have had in the past I think it's a good move to not venture down this road of no - communication. The bottom line is this, the rules are even for everyone on the water, if you want to talk, go ahead, if you don't want to, don't! By the sounds of everybody that is speaking out it will be pretty quiet next year anyway as no one wants to communicate. Let me ask everyone that is reading this, "when have you seen anyone win because of a phone call?" NEVER. When have you fished the first day at one spot with 10 boats and the next day fish with 60 boats? LOTS Should we put a gag order on all teams at night to stop that communication? NEVER. More times than not the info you get doesn't help you it hurts you. I think you don't lose a lot of teams due to this rule, it is just another excuse not to fish a tournament. Let's make these events the most fun they can be. More Fun = More Teams / More Rules and disqualifications = Less Teams I think part of the fun is competing against your close friends, you know one day you get him, the next he gets you. Part of that is talking throughout the day to find out how he is doing and not so much sharing specific fishing info. Think of these points before you roast me on this just my 2 cents worth Yvan

  14. Jeff I have sent you a note via Email. Hooked up You can't leave your boat on land in our series this year. It must be docked overnight for multi reasons but the the tournament commitee will assess you your slip, times for meetings and festivities going on each weekend 1 week prior to the tournament for your convenience. This will make life easier for marinas and participants as you will know where to go and how much to pay when arriving at the facility. Yvan
  15. Another small comment I would like to make here is regarding this potential new tournamnet on the Monday following the Pro/Ams in Niagara and Oswego. It was listed that the possible entry fees being around $1000.00. I for one must admit that our team would be quite concerned that another "select few" participants or organizers would be able to review all of the Pro/Am teams score sheets which list the exact time, waypoints, estimated size and bait the fish was caught on prior to Monday morning! Is there positively a way to prevent that? Here we go again?!?!?!? This was posted earlier. I think you have a point. To have this kind of entry fee and dollars involved it is only right that the committee gives every team the same info available. Really though, why do we have to tell the commitee where and how we have caught our fish. If we have observers shouldn't they have all the say in how and why things are on the boat. Please do not take this in a wrong way, I am not saying they are cheating. Just simply saying that there is a disadvantage if you don't see the info. Yvan
  16. Hey guys. Thanks for the interest. It is very exciting to bring this new tournament series to your side of the pond. We are anticipating many great days on the lake this summer. Our new website should be up very soon and we will be launching our maketing program in order to fill the fields to a maximum of 100 boats per event. To come over to our side is pretty painless unless you have prior convictions of some kind. Prior to June 09 all you require to cross will be Drivers license, birth cetificate and ownership of the vessel. If you run your boat over you call imagration and tell them who you are and they might come to check the boat out and maybe not. We have secured some great sponsors that will help make this series awesome. Hopefully you can join us. Can't wait for Spring! Yvan
  17. Tom You have some very good points. I know this is something that comes up in a lot of meetings. As a fisherman I could care less if there is communication. If it is allowed we talk and if not we don't. I have not seen the advantage either way because the info you get sometimes screws you up more than helps. As an organizer it is a nightmare with all the complaints. The observer deal is the biggest rule in place that deters teams. The one thing I can personnaly tell you is people find excuses not to fish the events because of one reason or another. Instead of a little effort in putting a team together and fishing which at times is challenging they opt out and blame everybody else for their own reasons. Like I said before, Try one of these events you might just enjoy yourselves! Yvan
  18. As an Organizer of tournaments and a participant in many others I believe observers are not the answer. Tried on our side and it was very frowned upon. Main reason I think is because most observers are putting time in and don't really know what there job is or even know the rules. If it was the answer there wouldn't be a problem a many weigh-ins like they do now. These tournaments give anglers a chance to put their skills on the line on an even playing field for a weekend under the same conditions fishing the same hours head to head. That's the exciting part. Make no mistake that there is no comparison whatsoever to a Derby/Lottery. There are many great fisherman that fish Derbies but it is what it is. Rules should be in place and enforced. If you can't enforce them then you should not have it in. A lot of you talk about communication. It can't be enforced properly and will always have protest on this rule. Tournament nightmare. Open it up and don't worry about it. The border-- open it up and no problems again. The fact that is against the law is false. The organizers what the fish to be caught on the american side and I don't blame them, the county is the main sponsor. If the Winning fish came from the other side year after year so would tourism dollars eventually. What I can tell you today is there are 2 King Of The Lake tournaments coming to the American side in 2009 with $25,000 Guaranteed 1st, $10,000 2nd and paying a guaranteed 10 spots. No Observer, Lie detector in force, Weigh your best 5 kings or Coho's total points. We are excited to finally bring this quality of tournament to Lake Ontario. We will have a press Release later this week. Yvan

  24. Yankee, I am sincere when I say I did not intend to put Screamer into this and my comments were truthlfully generalized with tournaments. Every team that fishes pro ams put a lot of money and effort to make these events happen and we do not want them to go away. This discussion was about rule changes and ideas and I still believe in what I said. If you look at the pro division they are not all charter captains. In fact maore than 1/2 are weekend warriors that prefish 1-2 days. That doesn't put them in a lesser caliber. Some weekend guys would put some charter captains to shame. Like I said amateur division should be for amateurs.
  25. I was not even mentioning names at all. It was a general comment. Having said that and again nothing against screamer, if you are walking the walk why not fish the pro division. Why not? because the rules alloy this to happen. If amateur teams were true amateur teams they woulnd't be sponsored more than the pro teams. Please do not take this out of context, all I am saying is if the rules stated that if you are affiliated, sponsored, employed or associated with a tackle manufacturer you are deemed a professional. This would make guys either jump to pro or become amateurs again. Unlike racing, being affialiated with a tackle manufacturer does help you on fish.
