Members fish in regular two person teams or may fish alone. Points are scored as follows: 2 points per team for participating
in a tournament and one point and fractional points for each pound of fish weighed in with a five fish limit per boat.
A team may use a substitute up to 3 times during the season
however, a guest may fish with a member no more than two times without having to join the club with points being awarded to
the regular team of the member. Guests will not be eligible for the end of the year "Big Bass Award" which is
funded by the membership fee. There will be plaques given to the "Top 6 Points Leaders" and "Big Bass of the Year", along
