Rising Stars Bassmasters


1. At the end of the regular season, the six members who have accumulated the most points will be awarded a spot on the State Team to represent the RISING STARS BASSMASTERS at the Regional Qualifying and State Tournaments.
2. Starting at seventh place and continuing in numerical order until the team is established will determine alternates for the State Team.  Boaters and non-boaters will be determined by order of ranking.  Places 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will be boaters.  Places 4th, 5th and 6th will be non-boaters.  A boater may pass his boating privilege onto a non-boater beginning with 4th place.
3. In the event of a tie in total points among the members, the tie will be broken by first evaluating the total weight of the fish caught by each individual, the heavier weight being the winner.  If a tie remains, then the total number of fish weighed in will be evaluated, the individuals with the most fish being the winner.  If a tie remains, then the average tournament finish will be evaluated, the individual with the highest average finishes being the winner.  If this method fails to break the tie, a 4-hour fish-off will be conducted under the direction and supervision of the Tournament Director to break the tie in order to determine the members of the State Team. 
4. In the event that there is a tie in total points among members not qualifying for the State Team, those members shall share the position.
5. An alternate will REPLACE any State Team member who does not fish the Regional Qualifying tournament for any reason other than;
   a. Hospitalization
   b. Death of a family member
   c. Work. 
6. Affected members may appeal their replacement before the Chapter at the next available Chapter meeting.  The appeal and decision shall be voted on and passed by two-thirds of the voting present membership.
7. Members of the State Team shall appoint a Team Captain to insure tournament registration and arrangements.
8. Requirements for representatives of the RISING STARS BASSMASTERS during the Regional, State, and Southern Divisional tournaments must comply with ARTICLE II, SECTION 2.
