How the Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trip Rotation Works


Sportsmen who want to participate must sign, if they have not already, a lifetime FCS Liability Waiver.  You do not have to be an FCS member to be added to the Rotation; however, the Event Hierarchy (pecking order) applies.  Whenever we’re about to have a Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trip the Event Coordinator will send an email to the people on the Rotation.  He or she will let everyone know the dates, location, and other details, including the deadline to respond.

Example (fictional):

The following people are on the Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trip Rotation list for the 2022 season:

    1. Tim
    2. Ron
    3. Bob
    4. Roy
    5. Jim
    6. Joe

So, let’s say that Ron, Roy, Jim, and Joe (who are all supporting members) all want to go on a June Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trip that has a limit of three fishermen.  In this case, Ron, Roy, and Jim would get to go, as they are above Joe in the rotation.  After a sportsman goes on a Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trip, the Event Coordinator will move him or her to the bottom of the Rotation.  So, after the June trip, the Rotation would be revised to the below.

    1. Tim
    2. Bob
    3. Joe
    4. Ron
    5. Roy
    6. Jim

Whenever a sportsman asks to join the Rotation, the Event Coordinator will start him or her at the bottom of the list.

If someone who is on the Rotation says no, or doesn’t respond, to an offer to go on a trip he or she will never drop in the Rotation.  Just as rotating ensures that everyone on a volleyball team has an opportunity to serve and play by the net, rotating the list of people who want to go on these trips in this manner ensures that everyone eventually will be near the top of the list.

Don’t let your order in the Rotation discourage you.  People who consistently say that they can go when the Event Coordinator sends out Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trip emails often end up going more often than people ahead of them, if the people ahead of them rarely respond.
