Updated: 5-9-10


2010 Spring Team Divisions - Qualify for 2010 Team Championships (held in Sep/Oct 2010):

2010 Spring Team Division contestants may qualify for the Team Division Championship Tournaments in two ways:

1) by finishing in the top 50% of the Spring Team Division final weight rankings (YTD Standings) in one division after all 6 tournaments or

2) by entering 5 of 6 qualifying tournaments in a Spring Team Division.

*Total weight and the number of division events fished only accumulate as a two person team, however, either member may fish alone to represent the team if one team member is unable to fish a tournament. There are no substitute team members allowed for YTD accumulation; If a change in partner does occur, this represents a new team with a new YTD accumulation. Each team’s YTD accumulation and number of division events fished will be kept on file to allow all teams to maintain their YTD accumulation status in the event that teams reunite. Any team may fish any tournament within a division and add to their YTD accumulation in that division.

Once Championship qualifications are met, the qualified teams in all Spring Team Divisions may fish in both BLT Regional Team Championship tournaments.
