nonboaters vs. boaters in a club

Recommended Posts

What does your club do if there are not enough boats in an event for the nonboaters?

Also how big is your club  with how many boaters and nonboaters?

Thanks in advance

My clubs about 50 people, but only about 20-40 sign up for every given tournament. We have plenty of guys with boats so whenever we have too many riders, we just switch one over to a boater, if we have too many boaters we switch one over to a rider. If we have an odd number of people signed up, we usually can find another club member to sign up, if not, somebody in the club will call a friend and get them o register. They're not in the club so they can't get points but they can still cash a check.

you switch a nonboater to a boater?? with someone elses boat??---thats awfully generous

Why do all the anglers need to be paired--Is it all partnered events?

Our club has 15 members with 5 NB, and the NB fishes against the boaters too

We have a specific set of rules to deal with this.  We have about a dozen boats per tx.

LEFT OVER NON-BOATER:

This will be taken care of in this order:

1st Person has choice of:

A. Go as 3rd in a boat

B. Be the 1st Non-Boater drawn at the next tournament.

2nd If the person decides to be 3rd in a boat, then a boater and a non-boater pair may volunteer. If none are found the person will be 1st non-boater drawn at next tournament.

3rd If the person still wants to fish, they can find a non-member boater in good standing of their choice. Their choice must be made by the Thursday night prior to the tournament and notification given to the Tournament Committee/Director. The boater must follow all FCS rules and:

A. Pay fees

B. Have the required insurance. This policy must be shown to the Tournament Committee/Director prior to blastoff.

No, not with somebody elses boat. Some guys who sign up as riders have boats, so if there are too many riders, one of the riders who has a boat will switch over to a boater.

No, it's not partnered events. You don't fish as a "team". The pairing are simply to match boaters with nonboaters.

We have 17 members with 5 NB.  We draw 2 or 3 days before the tournament.  If for some reason we have a greater number of NB than boaters we put 3 in a boat and go with a 3 fish limit for that tournament.

we tipically have more boaters than no boaters, when this happens you have 2 choises, get a guest or risk  fishing with out of some one elses boat. it is a fairness and safety thing, so 99% of the time there are 2 people in a boat.

Our club has over 60 members. If we have more non-boaters then boaters during the draw:

1 Check if anyone going as a non-boater would switch to a boater and take there own boat.

2 We call other members with boats that wern't in the draw and see if they want to fish the tournament.

3 We see if anyone with a larger boat would be willing to go 3 in a boat.

4 A non-boater can only draw out once till all the other non-boaters draw out.

Our club ups the fish limit and we fish as a team. We also usually just talk it out and do our best to even it out. With that said if somebody is forced to fish alone we go to single fisherman limits. Your partner is always done by a draw except for the single buddy tourney and the one show up event you get.

5 guys are nonboaters with 18 with boats so we do not have any problems.

And one of the nonboaters has a boat but he is still learning and he wants to continue as a nonboater.  :)
