11. Every other week, I will pair participants with a partner(s) via an email – usually by the Monday of
a. Members using their boat for the evening (“boater”) will be paired with those without a boat or a boat owner not using his/hers for the evening (“non-boater”).

13. The member with the most points following the final league date will be named the BTL Summer Fishing League Champion and will be awarded a commemorative plaque
14. If the league ends with a tie for high score, the winner will be determined by the single longest (in inches) muskie caught
15. For the safety of all the participants and the fish, I reserve the right to declare certain periods of time as “ineligible”. This rare occasion could occur during a period of extreme weather conditions (≥ 80°F surface water temps and/or periods of inclement weather). I will send notice out as soon as possible.
