Six ways to qualify for the Delta Open
Written By: duane February 21, 2013
Delta Open Team Series is here!
SACRAMENTO Ca. - If you have never fished any of the specialty events held on the California delta such as the Yamamoto Big Bass Challenge, the Snag Proof Open, or the River2Sea Open, then you just might want to get your calendar out and make plans to hold a date or two, and be part of one - or all of these great events, as Angler’s Press in conjunction with Coors Light, has bundled these venues together to present the first-ever Coors Light - Delta Open Team Series.
And no, don’t worry, the unique and exciting formats you have come to enjoy about these fun events will not change whatsoever. What WILL be created from bundling these specialty events into a team series, is an opportunity for anglers of all ages and angling experience levels that can’t - for whatever reason, commit to a “tour or trail”, to move on and participate in a Tournament of Champions style event – for braggin rights a big grand prize!
As these events are spread out over the entire year, are reasonably priced, and are proven to produce large fields of competitors, teams can be assured of great fun, uncompromising quality, and a competitive payback – PLUS the hopes of qualifying for the Delta Open Team Series Championship!
Six ways to qualify for the Delta Open Team Series Championship:
1. Be one of the top 25 overall big fish winners in the 2013 Yamamoto Big Bass Challenge
2. Be one of the top 25 teams from the Pro division of the 2013 Snag Proof Open
3. Be one of the top 15 teams from the Am division of the 2013 Snag Proof Open
4. Be one of the top 25 teams in the 2013 River2Sea Open
5. 7 teams from the top twenty five year-end - FPT northern region standings will qualify (random draw)
6. 3 teams from the top ten year-end - FPT central region will qualify (random draw)
Only 100 teams– and no more, will receive the opportunity to compete in the Delta Open Team Series Championship event which will be held on the California Delta in the late spring of 2014. The Delta Open Team Series Championship will require an entry of only $100 dollars per team, with a new Jeep Patriot worth $15,000 going to the 1st place team, along with cash awards to the top ten finishers, which will represent a payback of over 100%!
To add to the excitement, this Delta Open Team Series Championship event will be televised and broadcast on Comcast Sports Net California for all to see!
Qualifying Rules for Delta Open Team Series Championship
The Delta Open Team Series is open to anyone, and you may fish or participate in as many of the qualifying events you wish (FPT events subject to eligibility) to increase your chances at making it to the “big show” but you may only win one berth into the Delta Open Teams Championship event. Your partner in the Delta Open Teams Series Championship event must be the partner you qualified with at one of the qualifying events you fished.
Please note - As the Yamamoto Big Bass Challenge is held as an individual format venue rather than a team format, the top 25 big fish winners may pick any angler they wish as a partner for the Delta Open Team Series Championship. However, the person they choose must have fished in the Yamamoto Big Bass Challenge event.
The payout for the Delta Open Teams Series Championship event will be based on the amount of paid entries. If there are less PAID entries than the field size limit (100), the payout will be adjusted down according to how many actual paid entries are received. The Delta Open Team Series Championship event is a 2-day event with a 5 fish limit per team each day. Entry fee is $100 per team, with a OPTIONAL Big Fish pot of $25 available for those that wish to participate in it.
During the Delta Open Team Series Championship, qualifiers may only use the baits allowed in the qualifying specialty events such as Yamamoto, Snag Proof and River2Sea products.
So there it is…for all of you long time “by-standers” that have been looking to get into competitive bass fishing fun - that works with your limited schedules… this is your chance!
Call the Angler’s Press offices today and get signed up for one of the Delta Open Team Series events!
See you on the water!
