NOTE: Effective August 1, Massachusetts will implement a new COVID-19 Travel Order. In short, this applies to anglers visiting from all states save for the New England states, New York, New Jersey, and Hawaii, all of which are considered lower-risk states. This does not mean you cannot fish this event if you live in another state, but you are required to follow the state’s guidelines detailed in the COVID-19 Travel Order

COMPETITOR ELIGIBILITY  — Before registering for and competing in this event, one must have paid his 2020 KBF Competitor or KBF Lifetime Member Dues. KBF will make reasonable efforts to contact Non-members prior to competition to inform them that they are ineligible for prizes and awards unless they pay their KBF Member dues before start-of-competition or upon contact.

EVENT ID CARD — An official KBF Event ID Card with the proper Event ID Code must appear in each photo submitted for scoring. Codes are posted on the KBF Website Identifiers page and appear in the TourneyX Pro App dashboard at 7 PM the evening before competition. No substitutes. Click to open a PDF file, printable, with 8 KBF Event Cards. [More Information]

ELIGIBLE WATER — Charles River (See map on this page)
• Boundaries—Walker Street bridge in Medway to the Museum of Science in Boston.  Since the MA Department of Public Health rescinded its cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) advisory for the Charles River between the Mass Ave Bridge and the Museum of Science, we have set the eastern boundary as the Museum of Science.
• Launch—from any public-access launch point contiguous with, though not necessarily directly onto, eligible water.
• State Ramps (there are only two, and we have a permit for each): Waltham (33 Woerd Street) and Newton (150 Nonantum Road)
• Public-access Launches: Too numerous to list. There are dozens, if not hundreds between Medway and Boston. Anglers are allowed to launch from all publicly-accessible launches.

TOURNAMENT HQ — N/A (Virtual Event; no assembly point)
