New 2017 KBF Identifier Form

  • KBF Identifier Form in Pressure-seal Poly SleeveA 2017 KBF Identifier Forms will be required for use in all of this year’s KBF-sanctioned events (i.e., KBF National Championship, KBF OPEN and TRAIL Series Tournaments, KBF HOW Big Bass Brawls, and KBF Challenges).
  • When printed at 100% scale, the form is 3.75″ x 2-5/8″. It fits neatly in the new TourneyTag2 or in a clear, waterproof, pressure-seal 4″ x 3″ Poly ID Sleeve, sold for a dollar a dozen on the KBF online store. You’ll need to trim it down a bit or print it at 90% scale to make it fit in the original TourneyTag.
  • Each 2017 KBF Identifier Form has six event fields (boxes) so it can can be used for multiple concurrent KBF Challenges and tournaments.
  • At a time selected by the Tournament Director, the KBF Identifier Form with Event ID Code will appear in each registered competitor’s TourneyX dashboard.
  • If a printer is available, simply open, print, and trim out the Identifier Form. However, if you will be on the road in the hours leading up to the event, it’s wise to print off several blank KBF Identifier Forms ahead of time and pack them and a Sharpie in with your gear. Then, when the identifier appears in the TourneyX dashboard, print the Event ID Code in the correct event field before competition start time.
  • TourneyX also generates a 4-character Unique Angler ID (UAID) for each event, which appears on the competitor’s TourneyX.com Dashboard. Unless specifically directed in the KBF Event Rules Addendum, you may ignore it; KBF does not use the UAID at this time.
  • Certain KBF Challenges or Tournaments may require the use of more than one event field or additional special characters. If so, that will be explained in the KBF Event Rules Addendum.2017 KBF Identifier Forms

Discard pre-2017 identifier forms that you may have squirreled away in your tackle bag. Approved 2017 KBF Identifier Form are distributed at on-site Tournament Captains Meetings. Challenges and some KBF TRAIL Series Tournaments hold no on-site Captains Meetings, so print some copies now, cut out the forms, and keep a supply in your glove box and the pocket of your PFD.

KBF Tournament Identifier Form…Don’t leave home without it!

Where do I write that 4-character code I see in my TourneyX dashboard?

Thanks for asking. We don’t use it, so don’t put it anywhere.

That code is used by some organizations to identify photos by anglers who may enter a competition after it starts. Since the UAID is generated at time of registration, there’s no way an angler may take a photo with that code on his identifier prior to signing up. However, KBF is not allowing entry to competitions (with certain rare exceptions) after start-of-competition time. To keep from cluttering up the Identifier, making judges take longer to find the required Event ID Code, please leave it off.

If you forget and write it on your identifier, no penalties will be assessed; but it may take up a space that’s been designated for another Event ID Code.

Still confused about codes? You’re not alone!

TourneyX generates a Unique Angler ID Code (UAID) with each registration. That’s the 4-character code that appears under the event name, near the top of Screen 3 in the illustration. DO NOT USE THE UAID CODE in KBF Competition.

Instead, competitors are required to use an Event ID Code. In KBF Challenges, it’s the 3-character code that appears on the KBF Identifier Form in your TourneyX dashboard. For KBF TRAIL Series Tournaments, the Event ID Code is a 2-character code.

To find the Event ID Code, log into TourneyX and in your dashboard, (1.) click the “Identifier” button. (2.) Click the event name on the next window. (3.) Find the 3-digit code printed on the KBF Identifier Form. (In this example, that code is “SJA.”)

There have been times when new KBF Members, fishing their first event, submitted photos where the UAID was present in lieu of the Event ID Code. In those cases, we counseled them on using the proper Event ID code, made an exception and accepted their fish, and advised them to not use the UAID Code again or their photos would be denied.

Our advice to all competitors is this: use of the UAID is unnecessary. It offers no benefits to the anglers and just takes up space. The 2- or 3-character Event ID Code is required. Judges have been instructed to deny photos that are submitted without the proper Event ID Code visible on the KBF Identifier Form.
