Postby IndianaAngler » Feb Thu 21, 2013 2:49 pm

The 2013 IAIFS Tournament Series is now behind us. Considering ice conditions, the Tournament Management Team consider this years Series a success. However, we are not resting on our laurels. The TMT is already evaluating the '13 Series and discussing ways to improve the '14 Series.

The Series is put on for you, our members. We want your input concerning what you thought was good, bad, needs improvement, needs added, needs changed, etc.

Please post your thoughts in this thread, and thanks to everyone that participated in our 2013 IAIFS Events!!!

I liked the three events. All locations had good accommodations. I personally would like to see individual lake events however I understand why that is not always possible. I would also like to see a Warsaw area event. I also suggest eliminating the "other" category and going with a lake species specific category. For example have pike for Chapman and maybe walleye for a tourney on summit or pike lake this would be in addition to the other three categories.

I assume he is talking Pike/Winona/(maybe)Center only?
We have to stop saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are seeing it as a challenge!

We have had them in Warsaw in the past. It was always a good draw.

I think you guys did great with these three events, build on them. Keep it focused. I do continue to feel that there should be someway to include the FOF-Valpo and LaPorte events in the series. I know these are different and you don't have control over them, but some kind of involvement in them expands IA's reach. Most guys won't travel. Maybe some "points" awarded in the overall series if guys fish these events and also fish at least one of your events. Not enough to win the series that way but someway that they are included. Maybe include the PCCC event into that mix too since Felix is a signficant part of this site too. Sometimes I think we are thinking too small as a site. Maybe call these "IA Sanctioned Events". I also know there is no way to not schedule over each other, just the nature of a short season. I realize that I told you to "keep focused" and I also told you to "expand". LOL. We've got good guys across this state that are loyal to IA that can be a part of expanding the reach of this site.

With the Short/Poor Indiana Winter's of Late....This is the Perfect Reason to do a Joint Venture IA/FOF....or Two ??????
The Angler would have a Choice to Enter under One Or Both Events.......I believe this would help get The Numbers up....and Exposure......
LaPorte and Valpo are well populated area's and Draw good Crowds,so That's a no Brainer.........
I don't understand why its taken this Long for This Conversation to come up ????????

It has in the past. And we discuss it every year. There have been some rules complications in the past and we have been working on them slow but sure.
