Kayak Bass Fishing has generously donated additional cash prizes and 2020 National Championship Qualifying spots for the CKA-VKBC Battle at the Border at Kerr Lake, this coming Saturday, July 13th. This additional tournament support is to promote the sport among KBF members and non-members alike. There are two award categories.
- $1,000 cash
At the end of the event, the tournament directors will merge the two event leaderboards, and the top 3 limits overall will each be awarded a cash prize. Anglers do not have to be KBF members to receive these prizes and the prizes are guaranteed. They are as follows:
1st Place: $500
2nd Place: $300
3rd place: $200
An angler cannot win two of these KBF cash prizes. For example, if Larry Anderson has a 91” limit on the CKA leaderboard for 2nd place, and 91” also on the VKBC leaderboard for 3rd place, he would not win both 2nd and 3rd place. If the two largest bags on the VKBC board took 1st and 2nd overall on the merged leaderboards, Larry would win the 3rd place money, assuming of course that one of the top two VKBC bags was also 1st on the CKA board. If 1st and 2nd on VKBC had 95” and 94.5” each, and a separate angler had 93” on the CKA board for 1st place, then Larry would fall to 4th place. In sum, the top 3 bags overall win the money.
This money is awarded in addition to any other tournament prizes from either event.
- National Championship qualifying spots
We will award 15 spots to KBF members at this event. Anglers must be members prior to the start of the event. The spots will roll down through the top 35% of the field (normally, these spots do not roll down). Non-KBF members and previously qualified members will be skipped. And so, in a combined field of 100 anglers, spots 1-35 would be eligible, but spot 36 would not. In a field of 75 anglers, spot 27 would be the cutoff, and so forth (fractions would be rounded up).
