There are a few ways to register for this event:

On Site:  On site registrations are accepted from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM at Cedar Springs Park at the RAM Open Series Tournament Trailer on Friday May 19th.  I will encourage everyone to register as soon as you can to avoid the late fee.

Pairings take place at 7 PM on Friday during the safety briefing and are sent out to all anglers via text message.  Flight numbers, boat numbers, and pairing information are all done at this time.  Pairings are computer drawn and completely random.

Additional Information:

Anglers holding a Freedom Pass and cannot attend tournament registration and/or briefing must have someone represent them, or must call the Tournament Director between the hours of 12:00 and 4:00pm local time the day of registration.  (Friday)  It is the angler’s responsibility to contact the Tournament Director, or have someone represent them at the tournament briefing and partner pairings.  

Failure to call or have a representative will result in the angler’s name being withdrawn from competition and forfeiture of entry fee.

All registered boaters are guaranteed use of their boat.  There will never be a boater on boater pairing.

Linking is an option but is not required.
