Membership annual dues is $30.00 per team regardless if it is a one or two person team. You are permitted to have one alternate. (see explanation of alternate at bottom of page). When your annual dues are received you will be issued a wallet membership card as proof of membership. This card also has your annual TEAM # along with the six qualifiers & championship schedule. Do not loose your card. Your card & team # is needed for registration at the qualifiers and accumulative point system.
In the previous 10hp circuit members had to choose one alternate at the time they joined. As with many of the old circuit rules many were not workable nor sensitive to the memberships needs. In this circuit we the owner and directors reserve the right to change or add rules for the betterment of the circuit. The method of choosing an alternate is being revised to be more workable in the following way.
1.... A team consisting of either one person or two persons is permitted to have one designated alternate to fish in place of the absence of one
--------or both team members that designated the alternate.
2.... When first becoming an annual member the team is asked if they will use an alternate if necessary. The team may designate their alternate at ---------this time for approval or opt for choosing submission of an alternate & date no later than (7) days prior to an upcoming qualifier.
3....An alternate may be used to fish in the championship if a team incurs an absence that will open the option to use an alternate.
-----HOWEVER; during the championship the alternate is not permitted to fish alone and represent the team. An alternate may fish alone to
-----represent a team during any qualifier as long as the alternate was lawfully & timely selected.
4....If a team has designated an alternate and that alternate has not been used since the time of designation and the alternate is unable to participate -----if their presence is needed, then the directors of the EOI will allow a one time only emergency replacement as long as this replacement is
-----submitted for approval (7) days prior to an event.
5....The above rules are now in effect and may be changed if circumstances indicate a change is needed.
