TRAIL Series Mystery Bass BONUS BUCKS — This special opportunity for KBF BONUS BUCKS–TRAIL participants starts at $50 and grows with each TRAIL Series Tournament until claimed, and then it starts over at $50.
1. KBF uses Research Randomizer to generate a Mystery Bass score from 15.00″ and 24.00″
2. Next, a competition hour (1–8) is picked at random.
3. Tournament officials check photos to see if one matching the Mystery Bass score was submitted during the randomly selected competition hour. If one is found, then officials check to see if the competitor who submitted it is a KBF BONUS BUCKS–TRAIL participant. Ties are broken by earliest submission time. If the competitor who submitted that photo it is enrolled in KBF BONUS BUCKS – TRAIL, he’s awarded $50 (or the amount to which the bonus has grown by that event).
4. If no BONUS BUCKS competitor wins the Mystery Bass bonus, the bonus rolls back and is added to the next TRAIL Series Tournament’s bonus. Last year, that got up to $150-200 in a few cases. If there are two KBF TRAIL Series tournaments the following weekend, that accumulated amount is up for grabs at both of them. The number keeps climbing until claimed…possibly all the way to $1,400 by the last KBF TRAIL Series Regional Final.
