Grand Final Qualification

Not everyone fishes these events to try for the Grand Final. A lot of teams don’t bother trying to qualify at all, and are just happy to compete in 1 or 2 for fun. 

But if you’re a competitive lad or lady here is what you need to know.

2020 Grand Final will consist of the top 20 team’s. 

$ 10,000 prize money up for grabs

Qualification will be decided by your team’s overall point score for the year.

After each event team’s will be awarded a point score. This is decided by a team’s overall placing for that event. Eg: 1st place = 100 points, 2nd = 99 points, 3rd = 98 points and so on down the line.

There are only be 3 events in the series this year 2021.

We will be taking a team’s best 2 results from the 3.
