                                       Ranger, Crestliner and Lund owners who
                                       participate as boaters in sanctioned
                                       tournaments. Co-angler participation is
                                       open to anyone who participates in
                                       sanctioned tournaments. It will be the
                                       responsibility of qualifying anglers to
                                       submit their application in accordance
                                       with the procedures outlined below. In
                                       order to be eligible, the Ranger,
                                       Crestliner and Lund boat owner must
                                       fish out of a Ranger, Crestliner or Lund
                                       (except for amateurs or co-anglers) be

                                       Crestliner or Lund, and must have
                                       purchased their boat prior to qualifying
                                       for the RCL Walleye Championship.
                                       Qualification for the RCL Walleye
                                       Championship begins September 1, 2002
                                       and ends August 18, 2003. Anglers can
                                       fish only one division (Pro or Co-Angler)
                                       and occupy only one slot. Anglers who
                                       register must complete and submit an
                                       entry form beginning February 3, 2003
                                       or within 15 days of the qualifying event
                                       which contains the following
                                       information: Qualifying event and date,
                                       place of finish and weight, copy of boat
                                       title or bill of sale and current boat
                                       registration w/boat and outboard model
                                       and year (boat documentation needs to
                                       be submitted only once.) 
                                       Anglers may register from every
                                       sanctioned event they compete in until
                                       they are confirmed. No deposit is due
                                       when registering for the RCL
                                       Championship. Available slots will be
                                       filled based on place of finish. Qualifying
                                       anglers will be sent a letter of
                                       confirmation and given a deposit and
                                       balance deadline date. FLW Outdoors
                                       will maintain a waiting list (based on
                                       place of finish) for each sanctioned
                                       organization, if any angler fails to submit
                                       their deposit or balance by the due
                                       date, the next angler on the waiting list
                                       will become eligible. In order to assure a
                                       full field of 400 anglers, if any of the
                                       eligible anglers choose not to enter,
                                       participation may be offered to other
                                       Ranger, Crestliner or Lund owners
                                       competing in the sanctioned walleye
                                       tournaments, beginning August 28,
                                       2003. (The possibility exists that more
                                       than 400 anglers may compete in the
                                       RCL Championship). 

                             3. Pre-tournament practice 

                                  There will be no official practice period or
                                  off-limits period prior to the pre-tournament
                                  meeting. No contestant may be on
                                  tournament waters for the purpose of locating
                                  walleye or locating potential fishing waters
                                  after the pre-tournament meeting except
                                  during tournament hours. The purchasing of
                                  information or the hiring of services will not be
                                  permitted after the entry/balance date for
                                  each event (September 11, 2003 for the

                                  present for partner pairings will forfeit their

                                  areas, size and creel limits, etc. This
                                  representative must also attend the partner

                                  pre-tournament meeting to receive the Gold
                                  Member's boat number, meet their partner,

                                  contestants must meet with their assigned
                                  partners during pairings at the pre-tournament
                                  meeting. Partners should advise each other of
                                  their respective lodging and phone numbers
                                  and establish a meeting time and place for the

                                  Safe boating must be observed at all times.
                                  Each contestant is required to wear a
                                  fastened, U.S. Coast Guard approved,
                                  personal floatation device anytime the main
                                  combustion engine is in operation above idle
                                  from boat check until weigh-in. All boats must
                                  be equipped with an emergency ignition
                                  shut-off device that must be securely
                                  attached to the driver's body whenever the
                                  main combustion engine is in operation above
                                  idle. Each boat is required to have a fully
                                  functional marine band base radio and
                                  adequate fixed antenna (hand held radios are

                                  mobile communication devices during
                                  tournament hours such as cellular telephones,
                                  marine radios, walkie-talkies, CBs, etc., is
                                  permitted except to communicate fishing
                                  At the discretion of the tournament director
                                  tournament days may be shortened or
                                  canceled due to unsafe weather or water

                             7. Sportsmanship 

                                  All contestants are required to follow high
                                  standards of sportsmanship, courtesy and
                                  conservation and to conduct themselves in a
                                  manner that will be a credit to themselves, to
                                  FLW Outdoors, FLW Outdoors sponsors, the
                                  sport of fishing and FLW Outdoors efforts to
                                  promote the sport. Examples of conduct not
                                  complying with those standards include, but
                                  are not limited to, the following: 
                                       Consumption and/or possession of
                                       alcoholic beverages or any kind of
                                       mind-altering substance during
                                       registration, the pre-tournament
                                       meeting or during tournament hours
                                       extending through the weigh-in
                                       Abuse of, or addiction to, mind-altering
                                       Conviction of a felony within the past
                                       36 months 
                                       Any other words, conduct or actions
                                       reflecting unfavorably upon efforts to
                                       promote safety, sportsmanship, fair
                                       competition and compliance with
                                       tournament rules. 
                                  In case of any conduct not complying with
                                  the standards, FLW Outdoors shall have the
                                  right to refuse any application, or to deny a
                                  confirmed application, by returning the entry
                                  fee of a previously accepted application, or to
                                  disqualify a contestant. 

                             8. Boat operation 

                                  Pro division anglers will have complete control
                                  of boat operation and waters to be fished.
                                  Pros must provide their Co-Angler partners
                                  with all presentation equipment such as
                                  downriggers, planer boards, side planers, rods,
                                  reels, bait, line and terminal tackle.
                                  Co-Anglers are not permitted to bring any
                                  tackle into the Pro's boat. Co-Anglers who
                                  share their Pro partner's fishing locations with
                                  any other competitors will be disqualified along
                                  with the person utilizing this information. 

                             9. Boat and horsepower regulation 

                                  All boats must be Ranger, Crestliner or Lund
                                  brands and a minimum of 17' in length. All
                                  boats must be equipped with either wheel or
                                  tiller steering. No other steering devices will
                                  be permitted. No barges or similar cumbersome
                                  crafts will be permitted. Each boat must have
                                  all required U.S. Coast Guard safety
                                  equipment. Boats must contain a properly
                                  aerated livewell space to maintain alive a limit
                                  catch of fish. Maximum horsepower for all
                                  outboards used in tournament competition will
                                  be 250 horsepower, not to exceed the
                                  horsepower limitations set by the U. S. Coast
                                  Guard. Each boat must have an U.S. Coast
                                  Guard horsepower rating plate attached to
                                  the boat by the manufacturer. The
                                  horsepower of the outboard engine must not
                                  exceed the rating specified on this rating
                                  plate or the 250 horsepower maximum set by
                                  FLW Outdoors. By signing the entry form,
                                  each contestant agrees to submit their boats
                                  and/or motors to an inspection by factory
                                  trained personnel. Falsifying information on
                                  entry forms or altering the horsepower
                                  numbers on the motor or rating plate will be
                                  cause for disqualification from the tournament
                                  and may result in future ineligibility to enter
                                  FLW Outdoors tournaments. Fuel may be
                                  carried only in factory-installed fuel tanks.
                                  Additional factory option gas tanks (for a
                                  remote engine) must be installed by a
                                  manufacturer's authorized dealer or service
                                  crew. Gas tanks must be secured or strapped.
                                  Any additional fuel used during the
                                  tournament day must be purchased from a
                                  retail facility open to the public. 

                             10. Permitted fishing methods 

                                  All fish must be caught in a conventional
                                  sporting manner. Live bait may be used. No
                                  more than two fishing rods per angler may be
                                  used at a time. Trolling is permitted. 

                             11. Permitted fishing locations 

                                  Contestants may fish anywhere on
                                  tournament waters accessible by boat, except
                                  areas designated as "off-limits" or "no fishing"
                                  by local, state or federal officials or within any
                                  other competitor's first marked fishing area. A
                                  "marked fishing area," is defined as a 50-foot
                                  diameter area centered with a marker buoy.
                                  The contestant must remain within the
                                  marked area and may leave only to play and
                                  land a fish. When limited out or not fishing,
                                  the marker must be picked up. A marked area
                                  may be navigated through if it restricts or
                                  blocks access to other fishable waters. All
                                  angling must be conducted from the boat. At
                                  no time may a contestant leave the boat to
                                  land a fish or to make the boat more
                                  accessible to fishing waters. Contestants
                                  must leave and return to the official
                                  checkpoint by boat. The boat must remain in
                                  the tournament waters during the tournament
                                  day. No tournament boat may be loaded on
                                  the trailer before the weigh-in except with the
                                  permission of the tournament director. In the
                                  event of equipment failure or emergency,
                                  there will be only two permitted methods of
                                  returning to the official check-in: (1) by both
                                  partners remaining in their boat and being
                                  towed by water, or (2) by one of the partners
                                  entering the boat of another tournament
                                  contestant. Under these two conditions the
                                  contestants' catch may be counted without
                                  penalty (except late penalties, dead fish
                                  penalties or any other penalties pertaining to
                                  other tournament rules). Contestants who
                                  elect to return to the official check-in by any
                                  other means than cited above will forfeit that
                                  day's catch to that point in time of the
                                  tournament day. Any contestant returning to
                                  the check-in point will be eligible to restart
                                  and resume competition under the supervision
                                  of the tournament director or his designated
                                  tournament official. It is the sole responsibility
                                  of contestants to locate the tournament
                                  director to request a restart. If a contestant
                                  violates any part of this rule due to an
                                  emergency or for any other reason, they will
                                  forfeit that day's catch. 

                             12. Official checkpoints 

                                  There will be only one official checkpoint for
                                  boat check-in the morning and one official
                                  checkpoint for check-in in the afternoon.
                                  Failure to go through boat check and
                                  check-out in the morning or failure to
                                  check-in at the check-in point will result in
                                  disqualification. All fishing must cease upon

                             13. Scoring 

                                  The combined pounds and ounces of both
                                  contestants' catch will determine scoring
                                  during the tournament. Only walleye, sauger
                                  or saugeye are accepted species. Pros and
                                  Co-Anglers will fish together for the combined
                                  daily boat weight. Each partner will carry the
                                  combined daily boat weight into the second
                                  competition day. First round weights (Day 1
                                  and 2) will not carry over to Day 3. Day 3
                                  weights will not carry over to Day 4. The limit
                                  will be a maximum of six (6) fish per boat per
                                  day unless the state or lake limit is less than
                                  six (6), in which case the state or lake limit
                                  will prevail. Contestants who possess more
                                  than the allowed limit will have their catch for
                                  that day disqualified. The official minimum
                                  length limit will be fourteen (14) inches unless
                                  the state or lake limit is over fourteen (14)
                                  inches, in which case, the state or lake limit
                                  will prevail. Fish presented for weigh-in, which
                                  fail to measure the prescribed length limit, will
                                  be penalized at the rate of one (1) pound for
                                  each non-legal fish presented. Contestants'
                                  catches must be presented in an official
                                  weigh-in bag. 

                             14. Live fish 

                                  Every effort must be made to keep fish alive
                                  through the use of a properly aerated livewell.
                                  FLW Outdoors recommends the use of
                                  chemical additives that promote the healthy
                                  return of fish to their natural habitat where
                                  permissible. Eight (8) ounces will be deducted
                                  from the total weight for each non-releasable
                                  fish presented for weigh-in (a releasable fish
                                  must be able to swim upright in the official

                             15. Late penalty 

                                  Contestants who are not at the official
                                  check-in area at the appointed time will be
                                  penalized at one 1 pound per minute deducted
                                  from the total weight. Contestants more than
                                  fifteen 15 minutes late will lose credit for that
                                  day's weight. 

                             16. Day three and four 

                                  Qualifying Events - After Day 2, the field will
                                  be cut to the top 20 pros and co-anglers.

                                  will advance to Day 4, Pros starting by place
                                  of finish on Day 3, Co-anglers will be paired by
                                  random draw. 
                                  Wal-Mart RCL Championship - On Day 3, the
                                  top 12 pros and co-anglers in the

                                  Ranger, Crestliner and Lund. On Day 4,
                                  Ranger, Crestliner and Lund will furnish boats
                                  for the top 6 pros. Starting position and

                                  after Day 2 for Day 3 and by order of finish on
                                  Day 3 for Day 4. On Days 3 and 4 of the
                                  championship, Pro anglers will compete out of
                                  the same brand of boat (Ranger, Crestliner or
                                  Lund) that they used to qualify in on Days 1
                                  and 2. 

                             17. Ties 

                                  The largest one-day stringer will determine
                                  ties after Day 2; if a tie for the cut position
                                  remains, it will be broken by a one hour
                                  fish-off. Ties on Day 3 and 4 will be resolved
                                  by Day 2 standings. (This does not apply to
                                  sponsor bonus cash in the Wal-Mart RCL
                                  Walleye Championship.) 

                             18. Television coverage
