Entering the Game/Making Picks
In order to participate in the Game, participants must, during the Game Entry Period: (i) go to the MLF Site; (ii) if not already, register for and sign-up to your account; (iii) complete the entry form by predicting the ten (10) anglers who will catch the highest cumulative weight of scorable fish during the Tournament based on the criteria outlined below; (iv) answer the tie-breaker question(s) if any; and (v) hit the submit button to save your entry form (and answers) and accept the Official Rules. The time at which the participant completes these actions as determined by MLF will be considered the participant’s official entry time (‘Official Entry Time”).

PLEASE NOTE: You must hit the submit button every time you make a change to your answers, otherwise your new answer(s)/pick(s) will not override your previous pick(s). Though you do not need to answer every question presented (including the tie-breaker question(s) if any), if you end up in a tie and you have not entered and saved the tie-breaker prediction(s)/answer(s) if any, you will not be eligible for consideration, for the tie-break. We suggest you answer all questions for the Game. Administrator, at its sole discretion, will select the questions for the Game and list them on the MLF Site.

By entering the Game, you represent and warrant you are aware that a participant's name may be displayed in full (first name and last name) or partial (first name and first initial of last name) format in certain instances within the Major League Fantasy Game. If you do not want your name to appear on Major League Fishing Fantasy Game pages, we suggest you go to your registration page and change your personal information within the "Options" tab; more specifically, the information you input in the "Your Name" area. The information you write into the "Your Name" area, is the information that will be displayed on the Major League Fishing Fantasy Game pages. We cannot ensure the security of any information you choose to make public in the Major League Fishing Fantasy Game pages, chat room, forum, or message board. Also, we cannot ensure that parties who have access to such publicly available information will respect your privacy. Please exercise caution when disclosing personal information in these areas.

Scoring
Each participant will choose five (5) anglers from Flight 1 and five anglers (5) from Flight 2 as defined at the time the Game opens. At least one (1) of the anglers selected in Flight 1 and at least one (1) of the anglers selected in Flight 2 MUST be ranked 40th or below in the Angler of the Year standings at the time the Game opens. The assignment of anglers into Flight 1 and Flight 2 are done by alternating order of the Angler of the Year standings.

The participant will receive (1) point (or fraction thereof) for each pound (or fraction thereof) of scorable fish caught by these ten (10) anglers during the Tournament. The total weight of scorable fish caught by these (10) anglers will determine a participant’s final score for the Game. For example, if the total weight of all scorable fish caught by the ten (10) anglers that a participant selects totals 257 pounds and 7 ounces, the participant will receive 257.4375 points.

Eligible participants who accrue the most points (tie-breaker rules set forth below apply) in the Game may be declared a Game winner (subject to verification of qualification) and get the applicable Prize (as set forth in the prize section below), in accordance with these Official Rules.

PLEASE NOTE: The final official weights as determined by MLF immediately following the completion of the Tournament will be the weights used to assign points and ultimately prize winners for the Game. On rare occasions, MLF may go back in the days and weeks following a Tournament and adjust weights for purposes of the Tournament. These potential weight adjustments WILL NOT have any bearing on the results of the Game.


Deadlines
The end of the Game Entry Period is the official posted start time of the Tournament on August 16, 2022. MLF is the Official Timekeeper for this Game.

General Sportsmanship
By participating, you agree to abide by the general sportsmanship and fairness rules set forth in these rules and fantasy games in general. You further agree to accept and abide by the rulings and the decisions of MLF regarding all questions of sportsmanship and fairness. If a participant does not comply with the sportsmanship and fairness rules as embodied in these Official Rules, or MLF determines (in MLF's sole discretion) that a participant has acted in an unsportsmanlike or unfair manner, MLF reserves the right to disqualify the participant and/or remove that participant from the Game. All decisions by MLF in sportsmanship and fairness related matters will be final.

3. Prizes

The twenty-five (25) eligible participants who accrue the most points during the Game Period will be declared Top-25 Prize Winners ("Top-25 Winners") (qualification and tie-breaker rules apply).

 

The Prize consists of an Abu Garcia Rod/Reel Combo (ARV US$89.99) (the "Top-25 Prize"). Each Top-25 Winner will receive one (1) Prize.

 

Total ARV of all prizes is $2249.75.

 

Tiebreaker Rules
The twenty-five (25) eligible participants who accrue the most points during the Game Period will comprise the Top-25 Prize pool (“Top-25 Pool”).

 

Places one (1) through twenty-five (25) in the Top-25 Pool will be determined by descending order of total points accrued during the Game Period. Participants finishing in one of the top 25 places in the Top-25 Pool will be declared Top-25 Winners.

 

In the event of a tie for one or more of the top 25 places in the Top-25 Pool, the participant(s), from amongst those tied participants, who correctly predicted or is closest to the correct total weight of scoreable fish the Tournament winner caught during the Championship Round (August 21, 2022) (“Tiebreaker Question”) will be declared the higher finisher in the Top-25 Pool (qualification rules apply).

 

If a tie remains, the eligible participant with the earliest Official Entry Time will be declared the higher finisher in the Top-25 Pool (qualification rules apply).

 

Please note: Any participant that fails to answer/predict the tie-breaker question(s), will not be eligible to participate in the tie-breaker.
 

Once a participant’s place has been determined, any remaining ties for the next place will be broken by using the tiebreaker process again with the remaining participants who are tied.

 

After all ties have been broken and all places in the Top-25 Pool have been determined, only participants finishing in one of the top 25 places in the Top-25 Pool will be declared Top-25 Winners.  For the purposes of clarity, participants finishing in place 26 or lower in the Top-25 Pool (i.e. place 26, place 27, place 28, etc.) WILL NOT receive a Top-25 Prize.


Prize Notification
Each potential Top-25 Winner will be notified via email within thirty (30) days from the end of the Game Period.
