Chester County Upper Bay Opens
« on: March 13, 2020, 12:58:39 PM »
Only 3 weeks to go before the 1st Chester County Open on April 4th.

Thanks for all the support from the teams who have been with us from the start and to all the potential new teams I've been hearing from this off season.

This will be our 10th season running the CCBM Opens on the Upper Bay.

We averaged  52  boats a tournament last year with some large cash payout's plus some really nice sponsor prizes given away to the first 10 teams out of the money. We also have sponsor prizes for 3 additional lunkers after the cash Lunker so weigh your fish and stick around after weigh in to collect.

We will have a $ 50 Cabelas card for the largest single smallmouth weighed in each open.

We will also have a $ 200 card for Rhino Linings of Delaware Custom Truck Shop to be given each Open.

For the first 2 Opens the Rhino card will go to the lightest bag weighed in.  For the last 3 Opens the card will go to the lightest 5 fish limit weighed in.

We look forward to the 5 Opens this year and hopefully another fun season for everyone involved.

The regular $ 100.00 entry fee remains the same( Includes the $ 10 lunker ).

Don't forget we have have the $ 60.00 Side Option Pot for teams wanting to up their winnings.

The Side Option Pot is strictly voluntary and does not figure into the regular winnings from the normal  $ 100.00 TX entry fee.

Payout for the Option Pot.

1 - 10 boats - 1 spot paid 100 %
11 - 20 boats - 2 spots paid ( 60% - 40 % )
21 boats and over 3 spots paid ( 60 / 30 / 10 )

Registration for the April 4th open can be by mail or at the ramp. We will be set up at 4:30 at the ramp deck.
