New York The Bass Federation

Recommended Posts

New York The Bass Federation ( NYTBF) has developed bylaws and has prepared a tentative approach to organization, state team qualifications, and tournaments for 2009. NYTBF hopes to let the membership direct the future of the organization, and is willing to listen to suggestions for how to grow and run the TBF in NY.

Dues are $30, with $15 going to TBF National to cover insurance, sponsor deals, etc, and $15 to NY TBF to run the NY TBF. We are actively looking to sign up clubs and individuals to become members and get involved with NY TBF.

We plan to organize in 3 regions: southern, northern, and western. Clubs within each region can run events under the auspices of the TBF, with insurance coverage for club and members, etc. We probably won't have a club team championship in 2009, but could if enough interest is shown, and will in the future as more clubs get involved.

Each region will have a regional coordinator to work with the clubs, and to help run the state team qualification process. Qualification for the 12 man state team, which will represent NY TBF at the TBF regional, will be accomplished through the regional qualifying process and through a statewide tournament or tournament trail.

Each region will make their own decisions on how to run the state team qualifier for their region. The NY TBF BOD will have oversight to ensure fairness, but want to let the regions work out their own process as long as it's fair to all members in the region.

For 2009, because of the short time frame (team fishes in September), open state team positions will be earned through a qualifier which is tentatively planned for Lake Champlain at the Ticonderoga launch on June 27.

For the 2010 state team, 2 positions will be allotted to each region (must have a minimum of 10 members to get 1 guaranteed spot, 25 members to get 2 spots). The remainder of the team members will be selected through a statewide qualifier (no details as of yet on where or when but expect fall 2009).

We hope to see you on the Trail in 2009.
