Tournament Announcement...The Tharthar Lake Challenge!

Postby Yellowstone7 » Thu Jan 22, 2015 9:29 am

Hi Everyone:

Martin will be going on his annual holiday today and before he left, he had asked me to set up a Challenge Tournament based on the "Tharthar Lake Challenge" outing for you to compete in and to enjoy. We had a very closely contested and successful Challenge just a while ago and I hope you will be primed for this fantastic outing challenge with monster fish by Martin.

Before we start I must say this Challenge will not be for the faint hearted, or small tackle as it has some HUGE fish in many of the sites. You will be taxing your fishing skills and straining your tackle during this challenge to the extreme. Here are the rules for the "Tharthart Challenge".

1) Challenge to be done in "Experienced Mode" and no exceptions.

2)This will be a free for all, no bars hold challenge, meaning you can use any tackle combination that you want in doing the challenge. Heavy tackle will make landing the fish easier but would also mean fewer strikes and less skill points. I though this would be interesting as you can use your fishing savvy to select the smallest size tackle (more skill points) to land the biggest fish (more total length points).

3)There will be a prize for the highest points scored for the Challenge, and a second prize for the biggest fish caught while doing the Challenge. Big fish caught during "free fishing" will not be counted. The caught scores and complete caught codes must be sent to Roger for verification before they become valid. You must also post a picture of your biggest fish caught and caught codes on the Forum before they become valid. The same applies for the outing challenge scores.

4)The outing challenge will run for 10 days. Starting on Friday, January 23, 2015 at 00:00:01 US East Coast Standard Time and will end on February 1, 2015 at 23:59:59 US East Coast Standard Time. Any entries caught before, or after the aforementioned dates will not be accepted for tournament results.

5)As usual, no one player can win both prizes. If the winner should have both the highest outing challenge score AND the biggest fish caught, the second prize will go to the person with the second biggest fish caught. In the unlikely event of a dispute, the judgement of the VFFL tournament directors will be final.

If you have any questions please post them here and we will try to answer them as soon as possible.

Having read all the rule about the challenge. Now you can go to the Development Forum and download the "Tharthar Challenge" outing by Martin. You will notice there is not a species listing in the download link so every fish that you will catch will be a surprise.

Have fun and post your caught pictures and records on the Forum as everyone will be interested in seeing them.

Good luck and tight lines!
