Instructions

Attention:

Current and Future TD's. Please remember this. If you create a tournament in TourneyX, the default charge is $5.00 per angler. We have an option in your dashboard to buy credits/bulk purchase. If you go that route. Buy the credits first before creating the tourneys. Otherwise we charge $5.00 per angler in an invoice after the tourney. Give it a LIKE if you understand.

Tournament Directors Signup

It's FREE to signup, email us at info@tourneyx.com. We can set you up. You will need a Paypal account in order to use our services. Add your paypal email in the signup form. This will be the email your anglers will make payment. After you submit, you will be added to our database. As a tournament director you will only be charged when you create a tournament.

Once you have created a tournament director account you can navigate to your dashboard and create, edit and view a tourney, view submissions (accept a catch), manually submit entries (without photos), email all your anglers once they have signed up.

Create a Tourney - Our create a tournament form will allow you to name your tournament. This will create a page for you to send out to your anglers. The tournament will not show on the front page till the first fish has been submitted and accepted.

Edit a Tourney - Make changes to the description, change identifiers, change dates, etc.

View Submissions - The tournament director will receive an email from all anglers submissions. This will notify the tournament director that an angler has sent in a catch. You can click the link on that email to direct you to the site or make your way to the dashboard to view submissions.

FYI - these services are still under development and will only work if your anglers have smartphones that have email capabilities and access to 3g, 4g or LTE service.

TourneyX® is not responsible for fish that cannot be uploaded because of limited smartphone service. If your anglers do not have smartphone or service on the lake, they will need to supply a sd card from a camera and the tournament director will have to do a manual submission from a computer at weigh in.

Tournament Types

One Day Tournament:

The one day tournament is a tournament that will start and end on the same day. When choosing a one day tournament it should have a starting time in the morning (am) and ending time in the evening/night (pm)

Custom:

A custom tournament has no limitations on the start/end dates or times.

Multi-Day Tournament:

A multi-day tournament has no limitations on the start/end dates or times, but the submissions are limited to the start and end times of the tournament. For example if your tournament starts at 6:00 am and ends at 6:00 pm, during each day, submissions will be restricted to between 6:00 am - 6:00 pm, so no catches can be submitted at 7:00 pm, or 5:00 am.

ONS:

A two day tournament where the angler chooses which day (night) they want to compete. All scoring uses the usual method of total fish length.
