2020 KBF State Tournament

Gentlemen,

We currently have 70 Plus Boaters & Co Anglers already Qualified to compete at the KBF State Tournament on Green River Lake, Meeting on Friday evening will be at the Green River Lake Ramp 1 site as we will also practice social distancing as suggested by Medical personell.

The meeting will be mainly to get everyone checked in and see what the final count competing will be. Currently the Meeting at Ramp 1 is scheduled to start at 5 PM sharp and will not last very long. Again after the Registration Deadline, the pairings for the 2 day event will be posted here on this Page and everyone can see whom they are paired with and can contact you partner via phone or email as bot are posted on the same spreadsheet as the Boat Pairings.

A couple notes from the Executive Board of KBF.

  1. Today Tom Whittington has prepared a Link so that ALL QUALIFIED persons for the KBF State Tournament can Register & Pay the Required Entry Fees on line.
  2. The Executive Board has set a Cutoff Date for Registration {Friday 6PM August 21,2020} and when that date arrives, Should YOU have failed to register ONLINE, the only way you can then enter the Event is to Call Tom Whittington or Donnie Keeton, stating that you screwed up and missed the signup DEADLINE and agree to item # 3 BELOW.
  3. All members that DO NOT REGISTER FOR THE STATE TOURNAMENT VIA THE ONLINE LINK AND PAY THE REQUIRED ENTRY FEE, MUST CALL TOM OR DONNIE TO GET REGISTERED INTO THE EVENT AND PAY THE REQUIRED ENTRY FEE PLUS A $20.00 LATE FEE.  ALL LATE FEES WILL BE DIRECTED INTO THE TOTAL PAYOUT AT THE STATE TOURNAMENT.  
  4. After you get Registered and pay your Entry Fee, there is also a link for a Insurance Required Liability Waiver to be filled out showing your Signature and date signed.  If you have decided NOT to fish the State Tournament, please let us know asap
  5. At the checkin, this meeting will be SHORT and brief.  President Bridgman will make a short speech covering any missed items.  We will NOT be calling out Boat #’s for your Starting Positions.  Once Registration has closed, all entries will be imported into the tournament Program and the random draw will be made at this time.
  6. The Link for the Registration page after deadline date will be removed, once all entries are into the Program, the Draw will be made.  This year due to the Covid-19 safety recommended precautions, You will be assigned a boat # and YOU will fish both days of the Tournament with the same person.
  7. Once the Pairings have been made, YOUR assigned Boat # / Partner will be posted on the KBF Home Page.  You will have the same Partner both days.
  8. Registration for persons that missed the DEADLINE date will be accepted only by calling Tom or Donnie and your Money MUST be in their hands before you will be assigned a Partner
  9. Late registrations will not be accepted AFTER 6:PM on Wednesday August 26, 2020  Registrations received after the cutoff date will be assigned the next available boat #.

Once more, Pairings for the 2 day KBF State Tournament :  Once registration closes, we will import the entries into the Tournament Program and run the Random Pairings to assign you a Boat # and Partner.  A Spreadsheet showing your name in Alph Order will be on the sheet showing your Name, boat #, boat Status, Cell Phone #,& email address.

Follow instructions carefully:  Once you click on the Link to register & Pay YOU MUST COME BACK TO MAIN PAGE AND THEN CLICK ON THE LINK FOR THE LIABILITY WAIVER.  NO WAVIER IS THE SAME AS NO REGISTRATION  WE MUST HAVE BOTH ITEMS OR YOU WILL BE LEFT OUT OF THE TOURNAMENT.

Rodney Bridgman
