FIRST ANNUAL RICK YOUNG TEAM PIKE TOURNAMENT 2017

                                     FIRST ANNUAL RICK YOUNG MEMORIAL TEAM PIKE TOURNAMENT

                            PRESENTED BY SPORTSMENS WAREHOUSE PRODUCED BY 11 MILE MARINA

We wanted to dedicate this and future years of the contest to the life and memory of our good friend Rick Young from St. Charles, Iowa who died fishing in Canada last Summer. In our frenzied busy season we neglected to make appropriate changes to the name of the event to reflect our desires to have Rick in our hearts this and every time of year. So this then was the First Annual in his honor. He would want us to have a great time in his honor and we did! The tournment has grown over the years to be more of an end of season event than just a fishing contest. Although contest participation was down to 29 teams attendance based on how many people we fed was up to over 185.

CONTEST: Total weight for up to 10 fish and BIG FISH POT to single biggest fish.

EAGLE CLAW SHAPPELL- MARINA MARCH MADNESS 2017

Post under Construction* Sorry to those in waiting. Larry has been preoccupied with family health matters and hopes to be able to complete this task at his earlist possible convenience.

MARINA MARCH MADNESS: March 4, 2017

EVENT: All specie, three two hour fishing contests fished in a designated area. Prize award: First Fish, First , Second and Third Place heaviest fish for each fishing set.  Big Fish Pot is one of three qualified teams based on random draw.

TOTAL TEAMS COMBINED DIVISIONS: 69      BFP PARTICIPATION:43  $1,075

ROUNDUP: For the first time in event history we were forced to move the location. The North Shore Marina area had become too risky with deteriorating conditions. The move to Stoll Mountain where the ice was fine was a fun switch for contestants and a bit of a chore for Marina staff.

The surprise of the day was that as good as the Pike fishing has been all season and as good as it has been at Stoll the biggest one of the day was only 4.415lbs.

It seems the contest always comes down to the final BFP draw and this year was no exception. There were three qualified entries with Pro Team Williams/Apfelbeck being one of them. Although they had already clinched the Pro Division Championship a BFP win would put them over the top to be the total money winners for the season. The Everyday Angler Team Division Championship was still up for grabs if team 36 Franco/Harmosillo was to get lucky and be picked. With the biggest Pike of the day (4.415lbs) Pro Team 7 Vertovec/Quintana were looking to end a long contest dry spell and score the BFP.

The story of the day was Ford Williams and Perry Apfelbeck from Silverthorne. The defending champs are hard to beat because they are some of the best ice anglers in Colorado. They also have been in the tournaments and know what you have to do to win.  Last year Ford and Perry had a chip in the bucket but were not drawn. This year the luck side of things was on their side as their chip for BFP was drawn this time. They have proved again that the Pro Division does prevent a Pro team from winning lots of cash.

EAGLE CLAW SHAPPELL COLORAOD CLASSIC 2017

EAGLE CLAW SHAPPELL COLORADO CLASSIC ICE FISHING TOURNAMENT 2017

THE GRAND SLAM JANUARY 7, 2017

This is a fishing contest based on skill, knowledge and a little luck! Tightline Outdoors is a Participating Sponsor this year and hosts the Ice Addiction Series. That is a derby based on luck more than a contest based on skill. We appreciate Nate Zelinsky's support and encourage you to try out one of his events for something a whole bunch different with a chance to win a Quad this year. For those that want to win big cash and serious bragging rights don't miss the next South Park Ice Masters February 4 where skill and knowledge pays off and little luck never hurts.

The Grand Slam presents opportunities for anglers to fish in multiple categories if they choose.  Anglers are not restricted to where they can fish and teams may split up. The first leg of the tournament can be fished individually or in the series garnering points toward a final cash grand prize, in addition to money previously won. This is the third year with a Pro Division. This was created in an effort to level the playing field so Everyday Anglers don't have to compete with Professional Anglers, Guides, Employees of Sponsors and winners that score $1,500 over the course of a three year period. There were 16 Pro Teams this year. Total team participation was 89. There were 73 Everyday Angler Division Teams. There were 53 teams participating in the Big Fish Pot. The BFP is an optional side contest with a 100% payout to the heaviest fish in each category. The PRO and EAD are all included in the BFP. This is the first year that each BFP category was won by a Pro Team. In previous years a Pro Team has never won the BFP.

NOTE: In the Everday Angler Division no money was awarded for 2nd through 5th Place Salmon since there were no fish weighed in. There is no standing rule as to what to do with that money. Since all the payout envelopes were already prepared it would have been difficult and taken time to reconfigure the payouts. Staff discussion was not in favor of giving all the money to the first place winner although that has happened in the past. If anything it could potentially be divided evenly among all the participants. Given our time constraints it was decided to donate the money to Fishing Has No Boundaries. We will absolutely address this issue for future contests and figure out how we can fairly payout to everyone if this happens again.

17th ANNUAL SPORTSMAN'S WAREHOUSE Serious Fishermen Team Pike Tournament 2016

17TH ANNUAL SPORTSMAN'S WAREHOUSE SERIOUS FISHERMEN TEAM PIKE TOURNAMENT 2016

SEPTEMBER 10

The weather was spectacular but the catching wasn't. The previous two weeks had some of the best Northern fishing we had seen in sometime. But contest day was another story. This year we hosted 40 teams. 22 teams weighed in fish. The total weight was only 260.91 lbs. A great time was had by all. Fishing Has No Boundaries served 140 plates at the now famous Serious Fishermen Fish Fry and Crawfish Boil with live music by Oakley all out on the new Marina Deck. This years contest was dedicated to Rick Young, a great client, friend and benefactor to FHNB who died in an unfortunate boating accident this past summer.

CABELA'S COLORADO CLASSIC-MARINA MARCH MADNESS 2016

Post under Construction

TEAM EVENT: Two anglers per team.  Total  69  ( EAD 57  PRO 12)

ALL SPECIE: Trout, Pike, Salmon.

BIG FISH POT: OPTIONAL ENTRY: 52 @ $25.00 per team  Total Prize: $1,300.00  100% PAYOUT

TOTAL CASH PAID: $4,414.00

The catching was difficult for most. No problem catching stockers but that was not the game. The second set saw the most and biggest fish. Absolute proof that nice fish hang out at North Shore.

It has become a tradition at Marina March Madness with the final fishing set, the BFP draw, who signed up the earliest or tie breaker at the free throw line determining the overall Classic Championship and it was no different this year. In the Every Day Angler Division Team 54 Brueggman/Walter from Rifle who were sitting at 76 points and posted a First Fish and First Place in Hour One bringing them to 126 points were not able to hold off Team 17 Liebbrand/Liebbrand from Colorado Springs who started the day with 60 points and ended with a First Fish, 1st and 2nd Place in Hour Two with two big Pike for a total 130 points and the Championship. As it turns out it could have been a tie decided at the Free Throw Line because the difference of 4 points was the difference between early sign up for all three events and early sign up for each event individually. Both teams earned their way into the Pro Division next year.

BIG FISH POT: The BFP winner is determined by a random draw of the three big fish of each fishing set. Two Pro Teams were qualified. Pro Team 7 Williams/Aphelbeck with a 7.085 lb Trout and Pro Team 3 Gonzales/Martinez with a 5.255 lb Trout were qualified. Team 3 pulled that fish out in Hour Three when hardly any one weighed in a fish. EAD Team 17 Liebbrand/Liebbrand posted a 8.235lb Pike in Hour Two for a poker chip in the pot with their name on it. At stake was $1,300.00 and The Pro Division Championship. With a draw of Team 3 Gonzales/Martinez would have come from behind and taken First from the defending Champs. As tradition often has it with no ryme or reason Team 17 with the actual biggest fish was pulled from the pot. That does not always happen but the record shows it happens the majority of the time. Had Pro Team 7 won the BFP they would have been the big money winners of the season. Who says the Pro's cant win as much money in the new format as some have complained.

CABELA'S COLORADO CLASSIC-GRAND SLAM Jan 9, 2016

CONTEST FINAL RESULTS: Posting still under construction

The weather was not too bad with temperatures more moderately cold than that terrible cold that gripped us for a month.  The day started around -10 but warmed up by final weigh in. There were 89 Every Day Angler Teams and 15 Pro Division. There were 83 teams registered for the Big Fish Pot. Paying $692.00 per category. Both Pro and Every Day Angler compete in the BFP. One thing is for sure the lack of Kokanee Salmon action here lately keeps away those that may otherwise give the contest a try in that category. Only two EDA and one Pro team weighed in salmon. In general the fishing was difficult for many anglers. There were more Pike this year compared to last. As with all of our tournaments skill, knowledge and just a little luck will win. You can fish anywhere you want on the lake using all  your own equipment.

GRAND SLAM RULE INFRACTION REPORT:

During the Grand Slam portion of the Cabela's Colorado Classic ice fishing tournament series, hosted by Eleven Mile State Park on Saturday January 9, 2016, written complaints were filed by two different participating teams against a third specific team competing in the event. This team in question had been awarded 1st Place and BFP in the Trout category. Tournament Director Larry Falk is charged with following up and investigating the complaints, reporting to the Rules Committee and then making a final determination as to whether any violations occurred and what, if any sanctions would be handed down.

Complaint 1. The team in question had set up prior to check in.

Complaint 2. The team in question had others not in the contest fish with them.

Rule #2 states: “All teams must check in at the 11 Mile Marina Store, North Shore at Eleven Mile State Park. Check In begins at 4:00 AM for the Grand Slam and Traveling Trophy, 5:00 AM for March Madness. All vehicles, coolers and related equipment may be inspected by tournament officials. Teams may set up after check in but may not drill any holes until 7:00AM. Honor system in effect…”

Rule # 1 states: “A team consists of two people of which one member must be at least 18 years old. Teams must fish at least 30 feet from any other participating team and may not fish with anyone not registered in the contest.”

After receipt of the complaints, Tournament Director Falk had interviews and discussions with the team in question about the complaints. It was agreed that one of the team members would take a polygraph test. The test was administered at the offices of contest participating Sponsor, Accountability Polygraph in Denver, on January 21.

Two specific questions were asked during the Polygraph to determine whether either member of the accused team drilled any holes in the ice before 7:00 am on January 9, 2016 and whether either contestant turned in any fish on that same day that were caught by any other person. The contestant taking the polygraph answered “No” to both questions and the Polygraph examiner’s professional opinion was that the questions were answered truthfully. The team in question did split up which is allowed by the rules. However, in the discussions surrounding the test it was admitted that one of the team members did in fact have someone else fish with him. It was also revealed that equipment was placed in a specific spot on the ice prior to check-in, and someone who was not participating in the contest watched that equipment while the participating team checked in.

Determination Complaint #1: Although the rules say you may set up after check in, they don't specifically state that equipment may not be left on the ice to save a spot prior to check-in. The rule does say equipment may be inspected, but the rule is not specific as to whether that equipment must be available at check in or just on the ice throughout the day. Based on the rule as currently written, it was determined that the rule could be interpreted different ways and should be more specific to clearly state our intentions and expectations in order to be enforced. The rules committee will address the specificity of the rule and act accordingly if necessary for future events. Based on statements from both participants, and supported by the Polygraph that one contestant took, we do not believe that the team drilled any holes before 7:00AM.

Determination Complaint #2: It was admitted that one of the team members did, in fact, have assistance from someone not participating in the contest, who watched their equipment while the team checked in. This act in itself is a violation of the rule in that someone not in the contest was lending assistance. The team member in question who was not administered a Polygraph denied that this person actually fished with him but declined to take a Polygraph himself. The act of ice fishing for the purposes of this contest includes all aspects of the sport and not just jigging through a hole. In addition, any assistance rendered in any way would put a team at an advantage either by getting in the water sooner, having assistance in landing a fish and breaking down in a timely manner. Therefore it is the determination of the Tournament Director that Rule #1 was violated and therefore the team will be disqualified.

This is the only penalty that will be assessed and the team will not banned from future contests. This ruling is consistent with disqualifications in the past for the same rule infraction. We call this “party fishing” and it is a clear rule violation that simply cannot be tolerated, in an effort to maintain the integrity of the tournament and ensure that all participants are on a level playing field.

All teams below 1st Place awarded at the contest will move up one spot and will be awarded the cash prize due that place. The paperwork and final payouts to the teams listed in the final results will made no later than the last contest March 5.

We want to thank the teams that raised the complaints for coming forward. This contest is based on good sportsmanship, the honor system and is primarily self-policing, but we will promptly investigate any allegations of wrong-doing, whether intentional or not. The integrity of this popular event will not be compromised by a few that either intentionally or unintentionally violate the rules and regulations agreed to.

We want to thank the team at Accountability Polygraph for their professional assistance and the Rules Committee (Alex Falk, Cynthia Cannella, Tracy Carlson, Cletus Trausch, Bruce Buddington and Kevin Tobey) for their help in processing the information and helping make a final determination.

Please send any comments to elevenmile@hotmail.com. We are constantly striving to produce an honest, traditional ice fishing tournament based on skill and knowledge as opposed to the luck of the grid. Rule violations may occur from time to time. Our National Sponsors take pride in their participation in this event and we intend to make sure they and everyone else that participates knows that we will deal with all rule violations accordingly. In the last 15 years this event has been produced (45 individual contests) we have had four rule violations resulting in disqualification. We believe in our participants, that they are good and honest sportsmen, and know they will help keep this annual event an honest one.
