ENDED ... 2018 Team IceShanty's Online Tournament
« on: Dec 31, 2017, 05:44 PM »
:clap: This season marks the 16th Anniversary of the annual online tourney ! :clap:

"The 1st .. The Original"

Start Date : 1-1-18  8:00 AM EST
End Date : 3-12-18  8:00 PM EST

Here are the rules for our online tourney.

1) You must be an IceShanty member and signed up by the deadline.
2018 Tourney Sign up post url

2) You are allowed to upgrade entries. Once the entry is upgraded the previous entry is not eligible for awards
    or prizes.

3) You must print a copy of the TI 2018 card which will be available on the night of 12-31-17

4) Two color photos will be required per entry (of at least 450 pixels)
a.) Photo 1: The entry fish must be photographed with the entire rule (measuring device) clearly and readable in 
the picture as well as the TI 2018 card while still out on the ice. No part of the fish should be on the rule but I make exceptions for a fin, etc..  only yellow push/pull rules will be allowed. The rule should be above or below the entry not stretched on the entry. Only the entry fish - No multiple fish in the photo. No inside shanty pics. Only the IS tournament card .. no other cards in picture.
b.) Photo 2: This photo must have the angler and fish together while still out on the ice with the lake in the background and the anglers face uncovered.  I need to see the shoreline. If you are too far out to see the shoreline I need to see  ice holes, tip ups, etc..  No downward pictures ..  we want a view of the lake. No inside the shanty pictures. If the pic is taken at night kneel and take the pic at a downward angle so as to include the ice. Daylight pictures require background (view) as stated above. I will be allowing the tourney card on smartphones for entries. Just like the printed card if I can't read it the entry will be DQ'd.

Best practices
No altering of the photo's or immediate DQ.
All entries must be fresh caught fish .. not frozen or gutted.
Take the pic immediately while the fish looks good.
If it sits all day and looks bad it will be DQ'd.
5) The photo must be posted on leader board in the proper category (no snail mail) within the tournament dates/times by the entrant.

6) The entry is length only - not girth or weight.

7) a)The length is "as the fish lays" - not by squeezing the tail. The entry is measured from the furthest point to
     the rear (tail) and front (lip). No open jaw .. if open measured from shortest point at head.(usually upper lip)
     b.)Only post entries that can challenge the leaders board. Any " short " entries can be posted in the "short" entries area to qualify for the weekly drawing.

*If the entry is flopping you may place one hand to hold it down .. not two hands. No holding the mouth shut.
*No out of season entries will be honored. This is to prevent their targeting for the tourney*
* I will not be PM'ing measurements/results. You can check the leaders board.

There will be a "short" category to post any entries that do not challenge the leaders board.
By doing this I won't have to check measurements and it allows signed up members to be eligible for prizes in the weekly drawings.
Once you post an entry in either the short category or in the main categories you're eligible for the drawings.
Your screen name will only go in once no matter how many entries you post and if your name is drawn you are then out of the drawings.
Entries must remain posted for the duration of tourney.                       
If you are banned from IS during the tournament you are banned from the tournament as well.

In the event of a tie the first entry entered will be honored.

Rainbow Trout

he Youth Category is for members 12 years old or younger. (If 12 before the start date and 13 after the start date that is OK)
