Angler of the Year series &Tournament of Champions
GRS Angler of the Year
The top angler will be rewarded for collecting the most points during the 2020 event season. You are not required to fish all events to win an Angler of the Year seeding but this would be beneficial in collecting the most points.
An angler can fish alone then choose partners at a later date. Any team who who fishes will retain points throughout the year as long as one person (sub, capt or partner) fishes for that team. In the event a team breaks up, the person who has fished the most events or/and Capt shall retain the points. You can fish with any other partners. You can have as many subs as you need. In the event 2 anglers from opposing teams fish together, the angler with the most points previous to the event shall assume points. In the event of a tie on points, the team with the most overall weight for the
entire series will be deemed champion.
We will use all points from all 4 event finishes to calculate AOY standings. No dropped events. Each place is one point. The highest 4 series point total will be AOY. Ex. 1st place is 100 points. 10th place shall be 90points, ect. Closest to 400 points shall win the AOY title. In the event of a tie, the most heaviest overall weight wins.
The AOY will receive $800 from Boatyard/ Free entries to 2021 valued at $1500/ Name on the Perpetual Trophy/ 2 Gnarwhal Coolers/ Trophies.
