Each chapter will choose an event from their schedule that will be considered a "Major" event. At these tournaments you can expect bigger prizes, bigger payouts, and also compete in a Major Angler of the Year race. We'll talk more about that below.
There will be 2 versions of Angler of the Year. The Major Angler of the Year and the Chapter Angler of the Year. To be eligible for either you must be a member of Kayak-Anglers!
Each chapter will have a "Major" event and we will be keeping track of points using this scoring system for all 5 of the major events. The angler with the most points from their top 3 events from the Major events will be crowned the Major Angler of the Year. The top 5 in points will also qualify to go compete in our championship event.
This AOY race is specific for any given chapter. We will keep track of points using this scoring system throughout each chapter's tournament schedule. The person with the most points from their top 3 events in that chapter at the end of the season will be considered that chapter's Angler of the Year. Only each chapter's Angler of the Year will qualify to compete at the championship event.
There can only be one Kayak-Anglers champion, will it be you? 10 anglers can qualify to compete for this title. 5 anglers from the Major AOY race and each of the 5 chapters' Anglers of the Year. In the event that an angler is in the top 5 major points and also wins a chapter AOY, that championship qualifing spot will NOT be given to another angler. This also applies if an angler wins multiple chapter AOYs. A non-disclosed location will be selected and the qualifiers will face off to compete for the title.
