The event is hosted by the West Virginia Bass Federation. The Summersville Lake event is open to ALL TBF members and non-TBF members wanting to join. Interested teams must go online at bassfederation.com; Dream Team; to enter, the tourney # is 1043.
ALL interested TBF clubs and state federations can go online and register their own event today! All Dream Team events held before April 30, 2013 will qualify teams to the 2013 Dream Team National Championship.
“The West Virginia Bass Federation is excited to host its second TBF sanctioned Dream Team event,” West Virginia Bass Federation President, John Burdette, said. “Our first dream team event was such a success; we’re hoping to have another great turn out! We’re definitely excited for the chance to qualify another team for the 2013 TBF Dream Team National Championship.”
“Think about it, if there are only 30 teams nationwide invited to the 2013 TBF Dream Team National Championship Rally, those 30 teams not only get to attend a dream “vacation” event but also get to compete for a new Ranger boat plus a national pile of cash and other prizes!” TBF President, Robert Cartlidge, said. “A minimum of 70% is paid back to the local event and 30% goes to the championship. The odds don’t get much better than that! The more Dream Team events held the bigger the championship payout.”
TBF Dream Team Rallies are designed to fill a void not only in the federation but also the fishing industry. Fish no-hassle events close to home; fish with who you want, when you want, where you want.
All Dream Team Rally event payouts and advancements are based on number of boats. Roughly 20% of entries will be paid onsite, plus two big fish awards. It only takes 10 teams minimum to host a Dream Team event. The more teams entered, the more teams advance.
Every first place team (based on # of boats possibly 1st-5th) is invited to attend the TBF Dream Team National Championship. Every first place team (based on # of boats possibly 1st-3rd) will receive a “qualifying team” travel award stipend upon arrival at the championship to help offset the cost of mileage, lodging and boat gas.
The national champion team will go home with a Ranger Boat dream rig! Register to host an event anytime, anywhere in the US or Canada, sign up to compete or do both! There’s no limit on how many you can host or fish; so get started now!
