The creation of the OGS Florida Elite began when several anglers contacted OGS Tournaments stating why can't Florida have the same types of tournaments you find in other states. You know the ones who payback $10,000.00 to first place and payback 30 plus places. Well, we tried. We failed to gather enough deposits to show us there were 250 teams in Florida to support such a tournament in 2018. We were very much going to walk away from the challenge and write it all up to a failed business venture. When several of the already registered boaters contacted us and convinced us not to throw the baby out with the bath water. They explained they knew the tournament would grow if given half a chance.
Thus, the creation of the "new" OGS Florida Elite.
In a nut shell, the entry fee is still $1200.00 per boat. This entry fee covers the entry into all four listed tournaments. You don't have to fish them all, but regardless if you fish or not, your entry fee will be included in all four tournament paybacks. Each tournament will have at a minimum of $26,200.00 paid back daily based on the new 100 boat minimum. We will take additional boats from a waiting list in 25 boat lots once we hit the 100 boat minimum until January 10, 2018. A $300.00 deposit will still hold you a spot in the tournament until September 10, 2017 with the remaining balance starting to be collected September 15, 2017 through January 10, 2018. Any request for refund must be made prior to September 15th. All monies must be collected by January 10, 2018. The maximum number of boats will remain at 250 boats.
The quirk to this program, is once you have bought into the tournament you and your partner now hold a non- transfareable membership. Not that we charge a membership fee, but by competing, and as long as you remain in good standing with the OGS Florida Elite trail, you will reserve your right to fish in the 2019 tournament.
It is our hope each team enjoys the trail so much each team will hold this entitlement as a treasured blessing and will continue to support the trail year after year. This action would then leave several prospective members in waiting. Our suggestion is don't miss this opportunity to sign up. It could take years to have an opening. It is our goal to supply you the fishermen such an outstanding tournament experience you will never want to leave us.
Please check out the remaining rules. You can use Pay Pal to pay your deposit if you so wish. There is a $9.00 convenience fee for doing so due to the credit card company charging Pay Pal for the use of a credit card. If you have a bank account assigned to your Pay Pal account please get with us and we will collect your payment seperately without a charge. We look forward to serving you in the future.
