Competition format:

The last couple of years there have been questions and comments about past winners and sponsored riders competing in the event. Considering that BOTG has always been billed as an Amateur event here's what we've decided:

Friday, August 19th: Past BOTG Winners and Pro/Semi-Pro Team Riders, (1st Place in any previous BOTG category except Groms/Juniors, Masters)– Judged comp and trophy’s, Walking Man Growlers but no cash or gear prizes. I'd love to see Joe Ruscito, Alex Fox, Reed Brady, Ben Chambers, and all of the other past winners show up for this and put on an awesome show for the crowd.

Saturday August 20th: Amateur Comp: Groms, Juniors, Mens, Womens, Masters: open to anyone who hasn't taken 1st place in a previous BOTG category (groms/juniors excepted - they can move up) - Cash, trophy's, trip, gear

The Stevenson Eagles will be hosting a Beer Garden featuring Walking Man and Kona Beer. Food will be provided by Papas Dogs and El Casa De Sabor. We'll have beverages and other snacks available as well.

Prizes! Prizes! we got your Prizes!!! BOTG is looking GREAT!

We'll be using the prize pool picking system again that we did last year where each winner gets to choose from the gear pile based on how they placed in the event. If we get enough interest in the Blowout one of the Surfboards will be given away for that.

I'm sure I've missed one or two in my list and I think Steve has a couple in his list that I don't have, but no more time right now to dig through the e-mails. We still have couple more manufacturers looking things over as well. We should have everything finalized by Tuesday. I will update this post as new info comes in.
