Hi All,

Happy end of 2017 everyone.  Overall, us committee members think the year went very well from a competitor and submission basis.  We plan to keep the rules the same, with the exception that we're decreasing the mouth open deduction to 1" from its current 1.5".  When we introduced the mouth open deduction, our goal was to stop rejecting fish outright with mouths slightly open, as those competitors were not trying to "game" the system, just had little errors now and then, and were getting nitpicked to death on rejected fish.

Anyways, now the nitpicking has gone to the mouth open deduction :).  Just kidding.  Most of the committee members aren't DOTY award winners like I am, so they want to get you as many points as possible. We still want to encourage you guys to measure your fish as accurately as possible, and try not to "game" the mouth open deduction.  That's why we're willing to drop the deduction to 1" this year, and my sincere hope is to someday get it down even lower or get rid of it altogether to make it an even friendlier competition.  So keep up your good work, and please make an effort to shut those jaws!

If you have any other recommendations, other than the most common one of "get rid of bmb", hurry the F up.  You've got like two days, and Rob and I will be gone chasing stupid trout so we really won't care anyways.

Sincerely,
bmb
DOTY 2017 winner

and the rest of the committee.

When can we sign up for 2018? Just pay 2017 over to the left? 2017 was a lot of fun fishing!

I changed it to say 2018 over to the left, you should be able to pay whenever you want...

I do hope for a more northern location of course.

John, it looks like you paid the $40 entrance fee twice? Was that a mistake or ?

If a mistake lemme know and we can try and send a refund...I say try cuz I don't think we've ever done that before, but I bet we can figure it out.

Was probably paying for Sam.  PK will make sure to activate both. You're off the hook now, it's 2018. Someone restrict his access!
