Points will be awarded to each team weighing fish. The points will begin with 100 for 1st top weight of each event and continue to descend in appropriate order. In the event of identical weights the highest points available will be awarded to all same weight teams, but continue to descend in appropriate fashion for the following positions (ex: 1st and 2nd tie and receive 100 points, the 3rd place team receives 98 points). There are 20 show points awarded to any team fishing a qualifying event that did not weigh fish and returned their chip of life in a timely fashion. At the end of the sixth qualifying event all points will be tallied and the THREE highest teams will receive plaques for their accomplishment as well as bonuses of sponsor donated items. Awards will be generated throughout the season and announced to the field upon development.

The top 50% points field of the total number of teams that participated during the year will receive an invitation to compete in the Championship. Any team having fished or paid for all five 2017 events automatically will receive a championship birth.
