Statement issued by:
Terry Adkins, Tournament Director
Brunswick Islands Saltwater Classic
During the tournament weigh-in on Saturday September 1, 2012 Team C-Sick filed a protest against Team Intracoastal Angler. The protest was related to tournament rules 11 and 14 (shown below).
11. No tournament boats are to come together unless an emergency exists. Emergency assisting vessels must immediately contact the tournament committee. Boats are not allowed to make land fall during tournament hours prior to weigh-in. Captains and teams are responsible for following all local, state, and federal laws. Any legal citation received during tournament competition constitutes disqualification.
14. Teams must present tournament issued boat number placard at weigh-in. Weigh-in begins at 3:00 P.M. Weigh-in lines close at 5:00 P.M. A Tournament Committee member will determine the “End of Line”. Weigh-in times are determined by check-in time. In the event of a tie, the earliest check-in time will determine winner.
Specifically, the protest stated that the team in question did not have the official tournament issued boat number placard at the time of their catch and that the team made landfall during competition hours. The protest was accepted by the tournament director as a valid complaint. The protest was announced at the close of the weigh-in at approximately 6:10 PM.
During the tournament awards ceremony held at 7:30 PM Saturday September 1, 2012 first place prize was withheld pending final determination of the facts surrounding the situation and settlement of the protest. All other prizes were awarded and announcements were made describing how the protest process would proceed.
Subsequently, Team Intracoastal Angler requested that their catch be removed from tournament prize consideration. The tournament has honored their request and their catch has been removed from the official weigh-in results. With this action the protest has been absolved. The tournament results are final.
As a result of these actions those teams that received prize monies during the on-site awards ceremonies for places second through eighth in the “General Division” will be awarded the balance of their winnings moving them to first through seventh places respectively. A new eighth place winner has been announced. The final results of prize places first through eighth in the “General Division” did not affect the “Small Boat” or “Single Engine” division’s prize structure.
On behalf the of the staff of the Brunswick Islands Saltwater Classic I want to thank all the anglers of the 75 boats field, tournament sponsors and our host South Harbour Village Marina for a very memorable tournament.
