Why the raffle?
We require members to buy and or sell raffle tickets to make sure we continue to have the best payouts dollar for dollar anywhere in this level of bass fishing. 100% of all raffle proceeds are paid back to YOU the angler. We realize that 200.00 to 300.00 is on the higher end of memberships which is why we offer the raffle so that those who don’t want to pay it themselves can sell tickets and pay nothing to join.
100% + of all money paid in by Anglers is paid back in the form of Prize money.
40 Anglers Enter a tournament and pay 120.00 = 4800.00 (money taken at ramp)
We then take Raffle Money and add 20.00 x number of anglers to bring the prize pool to 20.00 x 40 = 800.00 in additional funds to bring the total for that tournament up to 5600.00. Here is the breakdown of how where that goes.
400.00 Big Bass Prize
