Rivers Qualifiers Multiple Entry Rules

  1. Qualifiers will be fished to the AT TEFF River Championship rules (IFFA River International Fishing and Match Rules) and as amended by this document and its appendices and any Local Rule Modifications.
  1. Only 3 Qualifier formats are authorised by the AT TEFF.
  1. A one day; externally controlled; 2 x 2 continuous sessioned competition.
  2. A half day; entrant controlled; 2 continuous sessioned competition.
  3. A 2 day; entrant controlled; 2 sessioned competition
  1. When half day qualifiers are run, the morning and afternoon qualifiers shall be scored and placed separately and then combined to enable an overall placed listing to be complied.
  1. All Scoring of qualifiers will be in accordance with Appendix 1 and likewise the combining of results of half day qualifiers will also be in accordance with Appendix 1.
  1. It is the sole responsibility of each entrant to decide and manage which Qualifier(s) they enter, however if they successfully qualify at more than one Qualifier, the earliest qualification will stand and any subsequent qualifications will be awarded to the next placed entrant.
  1. An individual is allowed to enter and fish as many river Qualifiers they wish, providing that they adhere to individual cut-off date for each of the various river Qualifiers, and pay for each Qualifier they enter, the TEFF entry fee, the Federations Surcharge, and the fishery charge.
  1. Only entrants that actually fish at a Federation Qualifier will be used to decide the number of places awarded in the National Final on a pro rata bases.
  1. In the event of a National Finalist declining to fish at the National Final, their National final place will be awarded to the next placed entrant at the Federation Qualifier where they gained their National Final place, even if that entrant had already gained qualification at a later dated qualifier. When this happens the later dated qualifier place will be taken by the next in line at that qualifier and so on.
  1. To assist entrants in planning their multi entries and their potential qualification, an active table will be published on the AT TEFF web site that will Nationally track entries, record result, give an indication of the likely National Final places per entry ratio and identify potential pre qualifiers.

APPENDIX 1

Scoring and placings

  1. Each eligible fish will score 20 fish points plus 1 fish point per cm of length. i.e. a fish of 30.3 cm will score 20 plus 31 (51 fish points)
  1. Competitors from each session will be placed separately according to the fish points they have scored. In the event of a tie for fish points, placing will be based on the size of the largest fish (or if equal the next largest and so on).
  1. Competitors’ placings in each session will be summed and their totals will determine their position in the competition. The lowest total placings will be 1st and so on. In the event of a tie for total placings, the higher position will be awarded to the competitor with the most fish points.

Combining half day qualifier results

  1. When half day qualifiers are run, the morning and afternoon qualifiers shall be scored and placed separately and then combined to enable an overall placed listing to be complied.
  1. To combine the results the competitor scoring the largest number of fish points (morning or afternoon session) will be the overall winner, with the competitor scoring the largest number of fish points in the other session being placed second. Third and fourth overall places will be calculated between the two second placed competitors in both sessions on a percentage basis of the total fish points score in each respective session. The same method will be used to decide between the two third placed competitors to calculate the fifth and sixth overall places, and so on.

NOTE: In determining the overall placings, the percentage score of each competitor can be calculated by multiplying their points score by 100, and dividing this by the total fish points score for that session.

e.g. Competitor’s Individual Point Score (say, 758), multiplied by 100 = 75800

75800 divided by the Total Fish Points Score for that session – AM or PM – (say 4955) i.e. 75800 divided by 4955 = 15.30% (to two decimal places) = Competitor’s Percentage of the Total Fish Points Score in that Session
