Title: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: Jared LeBlue on October 03, 2004, 02:51:03 PM
Ok guy and gals we have made a decision on who will host the next UBCS. We have also decided on how the host will be picked from here on out.

This years host will be the champions from the first annual UBCS, The Twin Cities Team Club.
Here's how it will work from now on. The champion of the tournament will host the following tournament, unless the champion was the previous champion, then it will be put to a draw. We will take the names of evryone fishing and draw from them. The club from which the member that is drawn is associated with will host the next UBCS.

Here is the challenge: Get as many members to participate, this will give you two ways to have a better chance to host the next event. The first is the more people you have fishing the better cahnce you have at winning the championship. The second is if it comes to a draw then you will have more people in it to give your club a better chance at getting picked.

This also means you can not host the next year UBCS unless your club participated in the last one. Basically what it boils down to is if you want to host you have to participate. We encourage your club to send as many members as possible so that you may have a chance to host this event.

On a final note I for one want to see this event grow and move around, so it's up to you to get as many people from your club involved on the site so that they can get excited about this tournament and participate in the next event. Like I said before, the more you have from your club the better the chances of bringing it to your state.

 Ok, I guess the Northern boys and Girls need to come down and whip some butt. When do you plan to give a date and place? For us up north, we need to know asap, so we can put in for vacation, line up sponsors to help with expenses. I already talked to several of my club members, and the way it looks, we will be there. After you get the date and place, you need to have a web page devoted to the tourney, like I said in a previous post. My sponsors want to see something in writing, so the page should be a registration type format, and then it can be printed[adobe pdf would work]. So, let's get rolling on this thing!!!

Dundee~

you are now my official hero!!! I am working on the main page right now and hope to have it complete by the end of the week. We are still talking about the date and once Rattle and I have had a chance to talk about that some more I will post it as well. This morning on our way to our tournament we talked about the pdf file and I think that would work the best for all. Like I said before I want this to be to a planning stage by the end of the month so that everyone has plenty of time to plan for time off, kids, family, reservations, and all those other things that go with trying to put on the trounament and get everyone to it ;)

Look for the new page to be up in the main site by the end of the comming week and for there to be a date by then or shortly after. I will post a link here to the main tournament page as soon as it is done.

 Laurie, A suggestion for you. When doing the tournament page, save a place on it for "clubs registered". You can list the clubs that registered to fish the tourney. This will help the clubs that are canvasing for sponsorship, and the clubs can give their prospective sponsors a printed copy of the tournament page. Seeing the club name down in black and white, will help their cause. Also I think it would help to present to the club members, the details of the tourney. I know I will take a copy to my club meeting, and use it as a recruiting tool....Just another thought for you to consider.

Bo, I will get everything as quickly as possible ;) I am already excited about the 2005 tournament cause it means that we get to see all of our friends again  :)

Dundee, I think that is a great idea. You are going to have to give us some pointers on how clubs can start their search for sponsers. Keep in mind that this is a live website and what I create is usually created live so you can see it as it is done... what I am getting at is that most of the time if you find say a typo  :-\ of course I am a great speller and you shouldn't find any of those here  lo but say if you did then you could PM me and I could change it live and it would be done. So what I am getting at  ::) is that when I creat the tournament page, if you think of something that we should add to it and I happen to agree with you  ;) it can be changed in seconds... welll ok minutes 8)

I am sure that there will be a rough draft available for editorial comments prior to going with a final copy....  ;D

Code: [Select]
Notes:
Host Determination Policy - complete (ahead of schedlue ;) )
Tournament Date Decision - necessary by October 15th

Ultimatebass.com Held the first Annual Bass club shootout last week end on the Calcasieu (cal-ca-shu) near Lake Charles, Louisiana. Although this one was small we had a great tourney and A lot of fun. This first Tourney was won by The Twin cities Team Club out of Shreveport, Bossier city Louisiana. As the champions The winning club will host the tourney next year. As of now we have a tentative date in late June, and probably somewhere in the area of North La. Mississippi or East Tex. Or southern Ark. We have the intention of making this tourney National with regionals and a national Club championship. If you are interested go to Ultimatebass.com on the forum and ask any questions you may have, someone will be available to answer your questions. Come look , we think that we may have hit on a great idea for the club fishermen.

I posted this on the Gary Yammamota forum, :-*  we all need to post on other forums that we frequent :help:

Ok everybody we need your opinions or suggestions. We want everyone on the forum to be able to participate in the UBCS. Do you think we should keep it the way it was the first time by allowing a member who is not representing a club to be an honorary member of one of the clubs participating, or should we change it to where that member can fish for the team trophies but not be associated with any of the clubs. Basically their weight wouldn't go to any club but they could win in the team event.

Tell us what you think? If you have another idea please feel free to post it.
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: MotherNature on October 04, 2004, 12:35:27 PM
I just want to add my 2 cents also. After thinking about this I thought it might be possible to keep the honerary team member thing going since we had so much fun with Bo and Ricky's teams as part of our club team. What if we assign them to be honerary members but just dont count their weight toward the club total.

I really like the fact that the more members you have present the more chance you ahve of winning. I also liked having the honerary members being a part of things. I dont want to punish them just because they don't choose to be a member of a club.

I would also like the clubs to win on their own merrit... If it had not been for the help of Ricky and Bo's teams we (TCTC) maynot have been able to win. Their prefishing and water elimination as well as fish caught were vital to our winning.

Just my 2 cents

Dundeeeeeee would you be so kind as to let me know what things will make the flyer more beneficial. I am accustomed to creating fliers for attracting people to fish but not with catching the sponsor. Here is what I have so far -

Things to go on flyer:
UBCS
Date
Place water state
Host club - so that they know it is possible to have the tourny in their neck of the woods next year
clubs registered along with state
entry fee and big fish option

As of last night, we are new members of the Twin City Team Club, so move over a little bit and let us play too! lo lo lo lo lo lo

The fun and friendship that we had at the annual was great and we don't know of no where else on earth that new people can be treated so well, so we can only want to be part of your club & group! I think Mike Noble, that's Mr. Nitro to Ranger, signed us on the dotted line last night, so maybe we will be able to trailer up and fish the Nov. tournment with ya'll.

Post by: Wildcat26 on October 04, 2004, 04:08:06 PM
I said earlier I would hate to turn anyone away. However, since the purpose of the tournament is to have teams compete against each other I now believe one should be in a club that is on the board to fish.  Otherwise we are just sponsoring an open tournament.  If someone really wants to fish the tournament they can join a one for the clubs. If someone from Calif. wants to fish the tournament let him pay his dues to a club fishing the tourney and fish.
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: DundeeMike on October 04, 2004, 04:09:01 PM
 Laurie, here is a couple of things that will help in canvasing for sponsors.
  I think you need to add either "Regional" or" Interstate" to the Flyer title, of course "annual". This may help to get some bigger guns, but the local businesses will eat it up also. If PJ Lures is sponsoring , put them on the flyer as a sponsor. You can add the sponsors as they come aboard. Just get the members who recuit sponsors to let you know , so you can put them on the flyer, and set up a link to them on the tourney page. I will have some more thoughts on this, and as they come to my old run down brain, I will send them to you.
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: DundeeMike on October 04, 2004, 04:24:36 PM
 Wildcat, I disagree with you. I think that any member of UB that wants to fish ,should be able to. This is how it can be done. The members could be honorary members of the clubs that are fishing the tourney. The main thing here is to have everyone pre register, for a head count . The members that are not in a club, can fish with the clubs that need more fisherman to level out the playing field.They can be paired up with a random draw the morning of the tourney. And their fish should count, towards the club's weight that they are honorary members of. This way everyone is part of the excitement of the tourney. It would not be fair for someone to come down and fish, and their weight not count. This can be refined, it is a rough thought.....
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: bocraw on October 04, 2004, 04:26:05 PM
Rattle, you have to be careful asking for opinions, because I’ll always give mine.  I think that “orphaned” participants should be able to be honorary members of other clubs.  I think the way we did it this year is the way to go. 

One of the things that is so fun about fishing new water is that it is fun to try to find an effective pattern.  I approach it like a puzzle that needs to be solved.  The whole time you are on the water you are looking for clues that will help you unlock the puzzle.  In a normal tournament each boat is on it’s own as far as figuring out the puzzle.  In the UBCS, for a pleasant change, the members of the club can actually openly talk about what worked and what didn’t and work together to find an effective pattern.  That is a refreshing change!  And that is the reason I’m so jazzed about making this tournament an annual tradition. 

For this reason, I really don’t care about the individual competition of the tournament. The part I’m interested in the teamwork involved with the club vs club part of the tournament.  I really don’t think the tournament would be fun for someone who isn’t part of the club competition.

By its nature, the way this thing is going to work is that the clubs with the closest proximity to the tournament should have a larger turnout than those who have to travel far.  So this is going to lead to the example I gave earlier where there will be a situation where 20 boats vs. 10 boats vs. 3 boats.  I think allowing the orphans to become honorary members of clubs who are short on members is the way to go.  It helps the underdog but does not tip the scales in their favor and take away home field advantage. 

I do think the decision on how to distribute the orphans should be left up to the tournament director, not the participants.  Basically, if you show up as an orphan you should know that you are going to be put on the sorriest team.  But being the biggest underdog is fun too.

Now I’m curious…Did ya’ll ever post the results of the tournament?  Would Twin City have won without our help?

Bo you know that your opinion is always welcome on this site as well at those of others that are here. That is my policy and yes sometimes it comes back to bite me in the hinny because I asked for the advice and got something I didn't want to hear but that is what makes this site so unique.

How many other places do you go online that welcome your input? A tips board was requested and we added it, more states were asked for and now we have then (and you all) and a tournament was asked for and we have it all because members like you have suggested it.

I am working on the page for the tournament results and it will be up soon, I think I posted this but for checks and balances, no I don't think that we would have won without the help of you and Ricky's teams.

Dundee, I think you will like what I have in store for the sponsors and I think it might help a little more than just having them on the flyer ;)

I am actually almost done with the framework so I think that Friday you will see a whole new area of the site dedicated to the annual tournament. I will keep in mind everything that you tell me ... I love new ideas  ;D
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: Mike Cork on October 04, 2004, 05:05:09 PM
First let me say that I actually do not make the final decisions around here but I do have an influence ;)

Orphaned Teams? I like the idea that anyone from the Forum can fish. I would hate to exclude someone that either wasn't part of a club or their club didn't want to participate for what ever reasons. I must say that it worked out very well with the Team Ricky and Team Bo being assigned to TCTC as we could only scratch three teams do to unexpected and uncontrollable issues.

WildCat I understand your position but, do you think that folks would pay a membership on top of the rest of the costs that will go along with fishing this event? I don't know maybe if they wanted to bad enough. But with the travel involved and time off required I think we will always have a couple orphaned teams.

Now putting them with other teams that have only a couple teams seems like to me a great idea. The camaraderie that it creates is excellent. Bo and Ricky fell right in and it was a blast. I understand where Bo is coming from in the team vs team formant it was a lot of fun putting the puzzle together with everyones help. Meeting up threw out the day and discussing game plans, sharing info, and creating strategy all becomes part of the game adding to the fun.

One thing I do think though is that if the host of the next event were to come to a draw, unfortunately the orphaned teams names would have to stay out of the hat. If their club could not represent then they shouldn't get a shot at hosting the next tournament nor should there name count to wards the club they fished with, because part of the draw is to get as many members from YOUR club in the hat and they have to be present to go into the hat.

But with all that said I think the Tournament should welcome them with open arms and make them honorary members of clubs to even the fishing Field. Just my thoughts
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: MotherNature on October 04, 2004, 06:36:04 PM
I had to go back and read the posts again cause I was a little confused. I dont think that we will ever be having just and open tournament and the one thing that will keep this from being that is that there is no money to be gained by winning first place. So far this is all for braggin rights. I would assume that in the future that there might be some money to be gained by winning but for the next few years at least it will all be for braggin rights.

I almost hate to see anything but Big Bass paid out. I know that it was mentioned to raise the fees but I am not sure if that was for clubs to raise fees for their tournaments so they could put money aside for travel or if it was UBCS to raise fees.

This is another whole ball of wax here and it is not the priority right now. We need to figure out what to do about individual teams that are active board members and want to participate in the event.

Bo, I want everyone to be invoved and everyones opinion is welcomed here, if it wasn't I wouldn't ask. As the events captain I have to play devils advocate on everything to make sure we work out all the kinks, or most of them. I would have to agree that putting the ophans, as you put it, on a team so they can compete and feel like a part of a team is a great idea. I think they can also get some great information about clubs if they fish as a part of one. I think our last tournament was a great success for many reasons and one of them is Twin Cities just recruited two new members, Ricky and his wife. It was a win win situation for both the club and the couple. We must always remember that this was set up so that everyone on the forum has a chance to meet face to face and fish a friendly competition. As long as we keep that in mind and let that be the leading guide lines then this tournament will continue to grow and be a great success.

Thanks for the input and as always anybody's opinion is welcome.
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: bassadict69 on October 04, 2004, 07:32:58 PM
Just my 1/2 cent...

I agree with Bo on the fact that anyone should be able to be a part of the UBCS, including the team portion.

Until earlier this year, I spent several years without fishing in a club, ONLY because of the fact that I hadn't yet found a bunch of guys that I enjoyed fishing with. Other clubs I had fished with were either cut-throat or very poorly organized.

Had the UBCS come up before I started fishing with TCTC, I would hate to know that I couldn't join in on the UBCS simply because I wasn't in a club or associated with a group or because I could not get my other members to join UB to fish the shootout.

I understand this is a "tournament", But I believe the main reason for putting this together in the first place was for fun & comraderie, meeting & making new friends from other areas, as well as a little friendly competition. If we started excluding people simply because they are not part of a "group", I am afraid we are taking this whole thing WAY too serious. After all, nobody here is making a living from this once a year tournament. If there was big money at stake, I could possibly see tighter restrictions on individuals fishing and being adopted into a participating club.

Both post were very well written, with good ideas and some good hind sight, the annual tournment like you said was for all to together and fish and have a good fellowship among our members! I known we were late getting into the ball game, but maybe that was our fate, maybe that was why we never could find a club to fish with until we found this site and all you fine guys & gal's and now we have found a home with great friends and a mighty fine club to boot! It's great with you are welcomed with open arms and like you have known each other for years, and that's what the annual is all about, meeting & spending time with ole friends and making new friends! ;D
It's not about the 1st place money, there is 11 more months that we can fish for money, but this one is for the fellowship of our fine Web site & members!

I did not say do not let all fish. I said this is called(UBCLUBS) and advertised as a CLUB tournament. If that is what we want then lets make it a CLUB tournament. You know like truth in advertising. If its not a CLUB tournament then call it something else. I know the orginal idea was a CLUB tournament, something different from  other tournaments. HAS THAT CHANGED? We no longer want to have a club tournament?  I also suggested a way to let people not currently in a club fish.     Go to the home page and read, it says club club club over and over in every article. If you are going to leave the tournament wild open and not charge a token club fee we will be getting away from our original goal..
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: MotherNature on October 05, 2004, 09:04:17 AM
Wildcat,

You are right it does say club club club on the home page and in every article I can manage to squeeze it into  ;D and the goal of the tournament is to "eventually" have clubs from around the country compete against eachother for the right to call themselves Champions, like all good things we need a growing period as well as time to build trust and integrity. The tournament is also structured around "this" website and the avalability of message boards for bass fishing clubs and the hope that we will one day host many many club boards with active members that will join us in the UBCS. Since it is a part of two goals, getting as many clubs as possible together, and getting our current members together to meet, and all together have a little competitive friendly fishing I would hate to even single out someone that doesn't belong to a club.

I have been thinking about your suggestion to have them join a club to be able to fish but lets face it there may not be a club that is suitable for them to join. I for one wouldn't waste my money to join a club that was based 3, 4, or even 6 hours from home if I wasn't going to be able to fish with them on a regular basis.

I would like to see everyone join the site with club in tow and every club have 10 active members but even you know that is not a realistic request since for a long time Rattle was the only LJBC member that was active and still the majority of the club is not signed on. Membership here is the FIRST and most important issue and requierment of this tournament. How do I tell the members that are active here like yourself that they cant fish or they have to pay to join a club that they wont fish with over the long haul to be able to fish?
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: Jared LeBlue on October 05, 2004, 09:59:29 AM
Ok with all that said  ;D here is what we have decided to do. Orphans,  I love that term, will be allowed to sign up for the tournament. Remember one thing if the tournament is held at a very far distance from your clubs home than you may be an orphan someday. The Ultimate Bass Staff will determine which club or clubs the orphans will fish with. I do understand where Wildcat is coming from and to have the orphans fish in an open field and not as a part of the club would change the dynamics of the tournament. Everyone brought up some good points and we appreciate everyones opinion.

Basically it will be the same as it was in the first tournament. Placing them with a club will be the responsibilty of the Ultimate Bass Team.

Taking all things into consideration we have decided to hold the UBCS on the fourth (4th) weekend of June.

Summer time to accommodate those of us that have children
The coolest of summer weather for those of us that don't care for the breathtaking heat
Not on any holidays
Not in Sept/Oct since that is when a lot of major tournaments are held
Hoping that with such advance notice everyone will be able to make plans to join us at the 2nd Annual UBCS...

We do still have a hard decision ahead of us though. I did a lot of calling around today and it is going to be tough to pick the lake I think  :'( As a tournament director I always hated this part! But I am sure that the guys will all help out with ideas and it will be outstanding....

As I've said before, no matter what date you pick somebody is going to have a conflict.  That is just the way it goes when you are trying to coordinate this many people.  Unfortunately, in this case that somebody is me.  I have to ask: Is that date firm?  Does the third weekend in June not work?  Does 4th of July weekend not work? 

If the date is firm, is this going to be the date it is held every year or just this year?
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: MotherNature on October 06, 2004, 09:44:06 AM
Bo we looked at all the dates that were available and they either conflict with a holiday, fourth of july is not a good time to get your people out on the lake it is crawling with people and we would just be asking for an accident, and fathers day has proved non productive in the past for us, I really feel like I am between a rock and a hard place here  :(

Lets say it this way, right now I have no other choice as to the dates of the tournament. The lakes with accomodations here are limited and so I went with what we had to so that there would be accomodations... not to mention one of the places that we were considering basically told me that we were welcome there but they would schedule whatever big tournament that came into town on top of us and that would not be a good thing :( needless to say I will not be taking any of our tournaments there in the future no matter how big they get or if they invite us, it was a huge let down comming form someone that I have been working with for several years now...

Personally, I have fished many times on Fathers Day and 4th of July.  I had some complaints about missing Fathers Day, but my attitude is that it is MY DAY.  And what I want to do on MY DAY is fish.  As for the 4th, the boat traffic is bad but having a holiday actually helps those of us who have to travel.  That way some people won't have to take a vacation day to drive home. 

Anyway, I've organized fishing and golf tournaments before and I know that allot of times it feels like you are put in a "can't win" position.  So I understand where you are are coming from if the date can't change.  2004 was Mike Noble's turn to miss out and I guess 2005 will be mine.

The slot on fork is pretty big and if I'm not mistaken you can only have a couple of fish in you possession. It's a great lake for a big bass format but not for heavy stringer. I've never heard of Millwood, how big is it?

Yeah I did not think about the slot.  Millwood is 29,000 acres lots of grass and trees and it is river fed by 3 small rivers. pretty much info on it online.

One of our members mentioned that Millwood Lake in Arkansas might be a good place to hold the 2005 tournament and so I have been doing some research on the lake to see if it has all of what we need.

Today we (Mike and I) took a drive up there to check it out. Of course you can look at the pictures on the State Park website but I know that pictures can be taken to enhance what really isnt there so I wanted to see it in person.

There is only one launch/marina on the whole lake that has cabins and it only had 10. The cabins are equiped with two twin beds upstairs and one double down. So in theory they would sleep 4 in each one so ten cabins are enough.

There was a club weighing in when we got there and we talked to some of them about he fishing in June and they said it could be good and tough with the enphsis on tough...

Looking around there was a marina store that was closed and a retraunt that was also closed, now I am not sure but during the summer I bet those are both open for business. The big thing that it was lacking (IMHO) was shade and a place to have our dinner at. There is a large parking lot and plenty of launch ramp.

It s cypress tree lake and in the summer that can make things tough fishin'...

We (TCTC) will be having dinner on Thursday and will be talking abuot the touanemnt and where it is to be held... I hope that some of you have some ideas on where to hold the tournament...

I take it the lake is shallow for the most part? It may be tough but let's face it I don't think anything will be as tough as the last one.  :surrender: I think one important thing to look at when picking the lake is safety. Try to pick an area that has good boat lanes and plenty of area to fish.
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: BIG PAPA on October 17, 2004, 09:29:58 PM
No Rattle the lake is not that shallow, I have only been there one time for 3 days and actually only saw a small part of the lake . mostly we fished the main river that feeds the lake. There are supposed to be three small rivers that run into the lake. We stayed on the end where the main river empties into the lake and fished up in the river oxbows and bays because as we were looking around the first day we found several schools and stayed on them all three days boating 30 to 50 a day. some decent fish nothing large, but we did catch some pretty good fish one morning on Buzzbait on a grass line, and found some pretty good fish in a grassy arm of the bay we were staying in where we caught some good fish on a weightless fluke fishing it in the grass.
do not know this as a fact but a guide down there said that if you know where to look you can find large schools all summer and into the Fall. Now I will admit I DO NOT know the lake very well at all so I may have some ideas that are not factual, so please do not let my ideas influence the final decision at all. The only reason I mentioned the lake is that On one occasion We caught a lot of fish and I do not (think) it is a slot lake, which I think would be a good thing for a tournament of this caliber. but there are probably several good lakes in the area we are looking at.
Mike Thomas grew up fishing the lake and could probably give a better report on the lake. :{_
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament
Post by: Mike Cork on October 17, 2004, 09:35:13 PM
Papa, it is not a slot lake but it does have a 16 inch minimum. It is a relitively large lake with plenty of wide open water. My biggest concern is the lodging. Either we go with the ramp that has cabins and no camping or we go camping with no cabins. I know if I were to travel along distance to fish this tourney I would probably want a bed. Anyway nothing is ruled out and we will discuss it at the diner.

Post by: BIG PAPA on October 18, 2004, 12:04:08 AM
I agree completely, I am a man used to his creature comforts. A comfortable place to stay would come before a supposed great fishing place. Actually we proved you can have a fun time without great fishing ;D so like I said this was just an idea, if it does not workout I am fine with that. :)

We did Papa and out of what looked like 10 or so boats all individuals weighing in they had about 8 folks weigh fish with only 3 or 4 that had any size (2 - 3 pounds) the others had one fish and Spots at that (.75 pounds)...

I would have thought that there would be some better fish caught, the weather was great. Cloudy and a little breeze too...

Nonresident 7-Day Trip Fishing License entitles a nonresident to fish the waters of the state with noncommercial tackle for the 7 day period specified. A nonresident trout permit must also be purchased to retain trout or to fish in certain waters. $17.00

Nonresident Annual Fishing License entitles a nonresident to fish the waters of the state with noncommercial tackle. A nonresident trout permit must also be purchased to retain trout or to fish in certain waters. $32.00

I get to weigh in now...It look like the further away from the larger metro areas, the sparse'er the accomodations will be, with the exception of the east texas lakes and yes that includes Teledo Bend-Mike N. If we are looking for both good fishing and accomdations we may want to look to the lakes that are known for both. I think we all know that it narrows the choices to Fork,Bend,Rayburn, the River, and just a few others that I can't think of right now (Too tired- too much at work today)....Dave

I never suggested Toledo Bend because I know some of you are bringing buckets of sand over there to fill it up. lo However since somebody stuck their foot in their mouth, it would be easy to find a place over there to stay and we all know there is plenty of room to fish. But before anyone starts  :'( you may want to check when they are having the Mcdonalds tournament over there, If I'm not mistaken it is normally held in June. It doesn't really matter to me where the tournament is held, I plan on being there. Oh and I guess I'll have to bring Rattles Trap. lo

No seriously Toledo could be a great lake to hold the tournament at but the Red River, Grand Bayou, Millwood Lake, Lake Bistineau, Lake Claiborn would also be great places to hold it... I think that we have to find a place where we can have cabins... a place to hold the dinner... weigh in can be done almost anywhere so that is an easy thing... parking and ramp have to be considered and also the fishing on the lake at the time we will be there (June 25th and 26th, 2005)...

Just spewing out some ideas of lakes I know,  don’t take anything I say negative about a lake to mean I don’t want to fish it, just kinda thinking out loud if you will.  Cross, would mean people would have to stay in a hotel, & those that live here would stay @ home so the get together time would be hurt.  The Red has cabins on it but I imagine they are the ones that stated they would still hold another tournament during the same time we had ours.  Also some of us that live in the area would just go home & again that would cut into our group time.  Bisteneau is a state park & they have cabins to rent.  But after this years draw down fishing over the next few years is going to be tough.  I figure Claiborne will be the same after there draw down.  Caddo may be hard for new comers to navigate around.  I know they have maps but the some of the markers on the map don't match the channel poles & not to sure about the accommodations.  Caney by Minden is also a state park & should have cabins & 6 or 7 of the top 10 bass in LA have been pulled out of that lake, but I believe its a small body of water.  Cypress & Black Bayou maybe an option but again its small & the accommodations are limited.  Toledo Bend has a few camps on it, & is a large,,, large body of water.  Even in wind we should be able to find some coves and such, but the ride to & from would be ruff.  Table Rock is a nice lake but I don't have any experience on it what so ever.  I do how ever have some brochures from a cabin/guide business right on the water.  Its like 45 a night for a large cabin right on the water & they have boats slips out front.  About an 8 hour drive for us.  Lake Fork sounds great, been looking for a chance to get there & fish, but don't know anything about it other then the big fish story’s I have been told about.  There is a larger lake up by Hope AR not sure of the name but have drove by it several time & saw cabins & hotels right on the lake.  Other then that I don't have any idea unless we want to go to MN or FL.

Danielle, my Boys & I hope to see you all @ Posados  Until then,,,,

I have been to the one on Table Rock twice now.  I have been trying now for 3 years to get my family from MN to come down & fish it with me.  Cool thing is that its very close to Branson & those that bring family that don't want to fish will have lots to do.  It has one ramp that is for guests only.  There are like 10 to 15 boat slips if memory serves me correctly.  The Cabins are of different size but the basic would sleep 4 to 6 no problem.  Has a full size fridge, sink and can't remember if there is a stove & microwave or not.  I will call get get all the details & let them know about the dates of our tournament.  Anything else you can think of for me to ask??

launch fees, out of state license fee, if they sell licenses on site... ummm do they have a store close by... I love Table Rock and it is a great fishery ;)

As far as the clubs in the area I do know someone that would be able to help me out with that and I will contact them today and find out the scoop on that one...

Besides and please don't be offended when I say this but your 8 hour drive compared to the Maryland boys drive is wellll ummmm you get my drift  :-[ We have to take everyone into consideration and if we go somewhere that is going to require us to get a hotel well then that kind of defeats the purpose of the whole thing :)

Tell me if I am wrong but aren't there still more members from Louisiana.  The further you go the more guys you will lose. You might have 25 teams fish in Louisiana. You go to table rock and that number will be much smaller.  What is an 8 hour drive for you is an 11 hour drive for me.  With practice and a day driving both ways thats a week of vacation. I know that the tournament should and will be held outside the state as it grows. But I think it is to early for that. By the way I say the state but anywhere in La. East Texas, Ark, Miss. is fine with me.

Right now I think I would perfer Grand Bayou.

They have RV parking at the Grand.  I need to find out how much you can rent those for.

I ain't staying in a tent...to old.

On Grand one thing would be nice, if you had boat trouble all you would have to do is step over into the next boat, cause as small as that lake is we would be on top of each other. ~shade

Okay being that I live a few miles from grand, here is what I have..Yes there are tent camping spots. there is a place to tie up to back at the camping area that is wind protected. The swiming beachis nice for families. The lake is big enough for a tournament of better than 75 boats, I have seen it this year...It's a pretty good lake with the potiential for some large fish (6-13 lbs), again I have seen it. If that turns out to be the deal, I can try to work some magic with them....Dave

Laurie, the guys from Maryland realize that the majority of clubs are from Louisiana. If you have to put the tournament in Louisiana, Mississippi or Arkansas to accommodate the majority it's OK. The sooner we can find out the location the better so we can arrange for vacation time. We are going to start saving money for the trip ASAP. For the guys worrying about an 8 to 11 hour trip just remember that FT. Polk is 25 hours from my home in northern Maryland. So we all have to be a little flexible as far as location, hotels and camping, etc. The best part of coming to the tournament will be meeting all of the great folks on this board.

I really appreciate the support that you have all given this event. I hope that as a member of the host club and the webmaster here I can do a good job at making this the best it can be for Everyone involved. I think that picking a lake this year will be a little bit harder than I thought so I have been trying to do a little research on the different lakes so that come tomorrow night when the final decision is made it is at least an educated one ;)

I am also confident that our meeting tomorrow night will be a success and that the Twin Cities Team Club will do an incredible job in pulling together and making this a tounament that others will want to be a part of in the future.

I am off to finish some work on the site and research... I will be here so if you have any questions just post or PM... I will be checking in through out the day!

If we were to hold it on Caddo, couldn't enough rooms at a hotel be reserved for everyone to stay in one place. Find one with a conference room, ball room, or whatever you want to call it & reserve it for the weekend also. That way everyone has somewhere to gather & socialize & eat, etc.

Caddo is pretty big.  Shallow, filled with cypress trees and stumps and oil wells.  You have to run "boat rows" that are marked.  Its on the Louisiana/Texas border, north of Shreveport.

The Red River runs from the Oklahoma/Texas border, down thru Shreveport and Alexandria.  It has locks and dams.

Actually the Texas State park on caddo is pretty much the same setup. with 6 cabins and as of last night they were all availabe at the time we would need them. :-*
caddo is about 26,000 acres with a lot of back water on and around the small river that feeds it. Most of the lake is cypress trees with an average depth of 6-7 feet.
Lots and lots of room for everyone.

rattle you are right! Actually I just like to mess with everyone, Caddo is definitely the best big Bass Lake in the State right now. It has lots of room so we would not be fishing second hand water all day. But it can be tough (especially if you are not familiar with grass, lily pads and cypress trees)  And Of course it is a beautiful Lake.I am not a fan of the Red River But I will admit that it too would be a good option. Obviously lots of water and plenty of different patterns and cover. Lots of deep water.

I thought that for sure Mike Noble would have told by now but I see that you guys have left it up to me  ~shade

Here is the run down for now...

The 2005 Ultimate Bass Club ShootOut will be held on Grand Bayou, LA

The cabins book up quick there and when I called there were three open so I booked them, if you are going to need to have a cabin let me know they sleep 8 to 10 folks and have plenty of room in them.

I am going to make a spreedsheet and start filling the cabins as of now so make sure you PM, email or call me to let me know you need spots...

There are also RV/Camper areas there and I was told today that if you want one of those you would need to call soon as they fill up fast as well. There are  some open as of this morning so make sure you call and reserve yours as soon as possible.

The reservation number is 318.932.3821 for Grand Bayou Resort

I will be changing the info in the tournament section today to reflect our decisions and I hope that everyone is as excited as we all are. I will also start work on the Flier so that those of you that need a copy of it to start looking for sponsors will have access to that as well. I really think that this is going to be a great time and a lot of fun!

It would be great if we knew how many folks were going to attend as of right now that would give me an idea of what we need to do to get that kind of thing ready and to make sure that we have enough space for everyone...

Hey Dundee...

The date has been set for some time now it is June 25 and 26. The cabins are $125 a night and they are very large with everything that you need except food and towles. They sleep 8 but 10 would be no big deal as they are good size. Here is a link to the website http://www.grandbayouresort.com/index_main.html I have 3 reserved and figured that the Maryland guys would take one of them. They are right on the water and the resort has a swim beach and is beautiful. There is a town of Coushata right there about 5 miles away and then there is always Bossier and Shreveport and if the ladies need some tour guiding I can help them out with that as well like the best shopping and the fun things to do while they are in town.

I hope that helps.. If you need more info let me know and I will do my best to get it for you.

LOL  Now you got it.  If you feel like we are picking on you then its just camaraderie & its cause we love you.  Now on the other hand if Ranger feels picked on, well then we must be doing something right.   >:D

Poor Ranger I wish we had 3 of them so we each could have a good piece to pick on for each different situation.  Cause you know one Ranger just isn't enough to handle all of our needs!   ~an~

 Ok, Guys I read enough, now it is my turn. As far as bringing a boat with out of state numbers, I am just going to cover my numbers with a picture of Minnie Pearl, and I shouldn't have any problems. My team will wear holy jeans with a rope as a belt, Tennis shoes with the toes cut out so they don't stink, shave our heads and grow beards, corn cob pipes will be an option as well as chewing tabaccy. This way the team from Maryland will fit in perfectly.....The Crown will be heading NORTH, Yall!!!!!!!

I take offense to that statement   ;)  Yes they are from Mary-Land coming to visit & then go back to Mary-Land, so hence they may be Yankees but certainly not Damn Yankees.  I on the other hand was born & Raised MN & once I found life existed other locations without having to worry about being cold 6 months out of the year.  I moved South, Married someone from the south & never Ever will I move back north.  That makes me a Damn Yankee, you see I'm a transplant with no intentions of returning to the home land.

Thanks Wildcat for posting that (I put you on the list) I am sure that my post has been buried under all the camaraderie that is going on here so for those of you that haven't wanted to read through all the fun posts and get to what is really really important "the location" we will be holding the 2005 tournament on Grand Bayou and I have updated the tournament section for those of you that visit the main site... oh and I need to know if you need a spot in a  cabin or of you will be bringing a RV/Camper so that we can get everyone situated...

I also need a general head count from the clubs that intend to participate so that everyone has some idea of what to tell potential sponsors...

 one thought i had about the web page ad and link is it should be carried until a little while after the tournament as i think that the responce will be the best just after the tournament with everyone looking for the results and based on how good a time everyone had a little of word of mouth goes a long way

i know i logged into to see the 2004 results and pics and everyones comments ::)
Title: Re: 2005 Annual UBCS Tournament

My thought is that the sponsers will have their page up for some time after the tournament. I had thought about leaving them up indefinitly but then next year they would have no reason to contribute so I think that we will leave them up until we start getting new sponsors for the following year... What do you think?

How about this... we will leave the 2005 Sponser Webpages up until August 1... I know that this year they are kind of getting gipped because we moved the tournament date up but in the future years that will be about a year if they get on board right off the bat...

You are so right DundeeMike, because even after we kick you butt all the way but to Mary-Land you truly have still won, because you got the honor & privilege to meet us!  That alone should lift your spirits & allow you to travel the lonely road home with a smile on your face and joy in your heart, even if you have to sit on a inflatable donut to help easy the pain of getting your butt smoked.  Besides its a free leason!, and because we like you, you welcome to as many as you want.

Is anyone going to have family kids etc. down ? Trey's family is thinking about spending the night Thursday night and swimming Fri , and then coming home fri afternoon or evening. I just thought about the cabins , is there a rule about how many can be in a cabin overnight? We can let the kids ( 3 year old boy and 6 year old girl) sleep with us but we do not want to break any rules.

I have been out of town or I would have responded to that ungentlemen attack on my butt last week.  It appears that you guys don't have Dundee to kick around any more so you have moved on to another candidate.  Your problem is, not like the Yankee I am not tucking tail, I will be there.

And yes, if you kick my tail on the water you better sleep :sleep: with one eye open ~die~

I kind or thought you whole club did.  After ya'll slipped that pond raised fish in on us last year.  I hear ya'll towed him down in a hundred gallon tank.  Fish has been weighted in about 50 tournaments. Hell, he knows how to climb on the scales by himself.

Its no problem. Make sure that you get enough window decals or what ever signage that they give you for all the vehicles. Otherwise, no problem. TAKE BUG SPRAY!!!!!!.  The skeeters (insect kind) are thick, but they don't bite, mostly all males......Dave
