$5,000 Minimum Guaranteed First Place at Every Divisional Tournament
 

2018 Ram Truck Open Series
Early Registration Opens October 20th

Athens, AL. Registration for the 2018 Ram Truck Open Series with a guaranteed payback at every event will open Friday 10/20/2017 at 8 am. The series offers a guaranteed $5,000 minimum to the first place to boaters at all one-day events and at the two-day Area Championships a guaranteed $10,000 minimum for first place boater and $5,000 for first place co-anglers. The 2018 season will offer 18 divisions with 81 tournaments, all in a Pro/Am style format with a path to the no entry fee Ray Scott Championship that has a payout of over $300,000 in cash and prizes.

Entry fees remain lower with Divisional entry fees for boaters at $200 and $100 for co-anglers. Area Championships entry fee is $300 for boaters and $150 for co-anglers. The Ray Scott Championship has no entry fee.

Boater and Co-Angler Package Registrations from October 20 through December 1, 2017 will each receive free a one-year membership and 2018 freedom pass, value $60.00. Anglers my register online at ramopenseries.com or call (256)232-0406

To advance to the Area Championship anglers fish either as a boater in 3-one-day events or a co-angler in 3-one day events, or a combination of 4-one day events within their region. This allows more anglers to compete for slots for both the local Area Championship and the Ray Scott Championship.

Each division will advance anglers to the Ray Scott Championship.

  • The top ten (10) Boaters and top ten (10) Co-Anglers from each division by points after the Area Championship will advance.
  • The top five (5) Boaters and top five (5) Co-Anglers at the Area Championship by place of finish, who do not advance by divisional points, will also advance.

Divisional points are awarded to each angler who competes in events within a division including the Area Championship. Anglers of the year for each division receive their entry fees ($1,100 for boaters and $550 for co-anglers) for the 2019 season, an automatic berth into the Ray Scott Championship plus the ABA Diamond Elite Membership status in the ABA Buyer’s Club. Total points accumulated from one day events within a division plus Area championship determines the Divisional angler of the year.

Boaters are always guaranteed use of their boats at all events. Co-anglers registering as a package entry will receive priority entry into each event in that division. Reminder, co-anglers can guarantee their spot in an event by “linking” with a registered boater.
