As alluded to at both prior 2018 quarterly meetings, the Board has decided, in an attempt to solve the problems associated with the requirement to register for the National Semi-Final 30 days before the event, to start its 2019 tournament schedule in 2018.
So, basically, we will have a “wrap-around” type schedule, with one event in late 2018 and two in 2019, with none later than the end of July 2019.
With that said, the first event of the 2019 point tournament season will be on the Delaware River on Sunday, October 12, 2018. We will be launching out of the Gloucester City Boat Ramp at 225 South King Street, Gloucester City, NJ, 08030. This should be a great event as the mid-fall river bite should be on. Once this event is posted on the website, the registration will be open. As always, register early and include your link if applicable. We have had excellent tournament participation this season and truly hope it continues as we try this new type of scheduling. Please come out and fish if you can!
We are already working on the rest of the 2019 schedule as discussed at the May 2018 meeting. Once it is finalized, it will be sent to the members.
This is important. If you know of anyone who is currently NOT a federation member but may be interested in being a member for 2019, spread the word to them. We do not want them to miss out on fishing in the October 2018 event. We will also post this information on the Facebook page. Any such individual should contact Nick Angiulo at firstname.lastname@example.org who will give them details on how to become a member for 2019 this year, which would allow them to fish in the October 2018 event.
