SA BASS Cast-for-Cash
FLW South Africa Championship

TOURNAMENT RULES for 2017

The SA BASS Cast-for-Cash and FLW South Africa hierarchy of bass angling money tournaments are open to any participant, irrespective of age, creed, colour or race. However, the management of SA BASS and FLW South Africa reserve the right of admission to any participant.

These rules are intended to further the best interests of bass angling in general and not to benefit any individual or competitor.

The rules will remain unchanged during this season (except under extreme conditions).

Interpretation of these rules will be left exclusively to SA BASS Cast-for-Cash and FLW South Africa tournament organisers. Decisions of the tournament director are final in all matters and are not subject to appeal.

 

TOURNAMENT RULES:

1.GENERAL

  1. All anglers enter the Cast-for-Cash Tournament Trail voluntarily and at their own risk.

b.SA BASS and staff, the Cast-for-Cash tournament organisers, FLW South Africa, tournament sponsors, BB Print and its proprietors and all resort proprietors and their employees at all levels, are indemnified from any personal liabilities whatsoever that may be incurred by any person while travelling to, or from, or during the tournament.

  1. The emphasis is on team, rather than individual, competition.
  2. Only one team per boat is allowed and a team consists of maximum two persons on one boat.
    (A team may however consist of just one person.)
  3. No angler under the age of 16 is allowed to participate, unless accompanied by an adult.
  4. Anglers are not allowed to keep the official weigh-bags, tags or boat flags used at the tournaments.
  5. Any person who, in the judgment of the tournament organiser is disabled or handicapped in such a manner as to unfairly hinder his or her skipper or co-angler partner or compromise his or her safety or the safety of his or her skipper or co-angler partner may not be eligible to participate.

 

2.DATES & VENUES

  1. The 2017 season will be from November 2016 to July 2017 and fished mainly on the last weekend of the month.
  2. The venue for each competition will be announced at the preceding month’s captains meeting and on our websites www.sabass.com and www.flwsouthafrica.com
  3. In the event of a clash of dates or venues with other Cast-for-Cash regions, the final decision will rest with the Cast-for-Cash organisers if a change of date or venue is required. Cast-for-Cash organisers cannot be held responsible if dates and venues need to be changed because of influences beyond their control. Due notice will be given at least fourteen days, by notifying participants via the website, social media networks, e-mail or SMS.
  4. At the discretion of the tournament organiser, tournament days may be shortened, postponed or cancelled due to unsafe weather or water conditions.
  5. There are no cut-off dates for Cast-for-Cash events during 2017.

 

3.PURCHASING of INFORMATION
The purchasing of, or bartering for, information about locating or catching fish on tournament waters, including but not limited to GPS waypoints (other than through commercially available sources) and the hiring of fishing guide services is not permitted within FIVE days prior each tournament. The sharing of tournament winnings with non-contestants in exchange for information about locating or catching fish on tournament waters is strictly prohibited and will be cause for disqualification from the entire tournament. The purchasing of, or bartering for, fishing locations from another contestant is strictly prohibited and will be cause for both contestants to be disqualified from the entire tournament.
