In the past years has Kayakwars always taken this long to do the prize draws?
Do ppl even know what the prizes are?

This will be my 4th year participating in Kayak Wars and every year it seems like it takes forever.  Personally I don't care, I would participate whether you had the chance to win a prize or not.

It appears the KW draw will be soon.

https://www.facebook.com/KayakWars (https://www.facebook.com/KayakWars)

Sounds like they are getting lots of stuff for 2014 and 2015.
I have a box full of biffs, trail plastics, paddle/rod leashes, hobie thermoses, beach bags,
and also a backpack from last year. Stuff to use if
I ever host a tourney. The pack of Butter -It baits, I got
last year got eaten by some snot rockets , was a pack of 6 swim baits..kinda cool
trying stuff not found locally.

What were those " Victory " lures like shooter ?

Guess Lucas is getting the outback again this year ? ( No one likes a repeat winner eh Joe ?  ;) )

Good luck everyone.  :)

Lol Brent. Plenty of extra thing of a bobs myself. And those Victory lures i won last year really should have been given out to a saltwater fisherman. They are collecting dust rightnow. Hopefully that yak has my name on it already lol.

I'm not holding my breath on getting the prizes, if they show up I'll be the first to should hurray!

Being a... hmmm,  17 year vet in the field of software engineering, I'd probably be well suited to be part of the a team running something like this; the back end DB side I could probably do in my sleep.  Myself and a good front end web developer could take care of the development side of it for sure.  Then you need to look at someone to gather and administer sponsors, prize distributions, issue resolutions, ...etc.   There is a lot to it and an organized team of 3 - 5 good people would be needed for sure!   I've bitten off way too much already, so I'm out of the running to get involved at that lefvel.

Whoever takes it over, kudos to them, and I hope for the sake of the participants, they commit to doing a full out effort and not half-assing it.

As much as I would love to take on kw as well. Time is hard to come by. What free time I do find I spend fishing or tending to the other sites I run.
I'm glad to here that Oz we be sending out stuff for last year. (to bad I was not in it then).
I have a feeling that KW will still due after thus year. I have talked to Oz ab the site and seeing he is looking to get around 20k for the site I think there will be few buyers. And if some one does pony up the coin. The only way to make back the money is to start charging more for it.
This will drop numbers huge! I'm going to guess by 1/2.
I hope someone does take it on and keeps it a very similar format.
Here's hoping KW will be around next season!

What kayakwars needs is someone good at programming that can fix some of the glitches currently in the system and to make sure the website is up to date. For example why is the 2015 sponsor list(the most important aspect of the tournament) still being updated??? Simplify some of the processes(submissions for example). Then make a few adjustments, one of which I would do is an ability for a member to delete their entry for a short period(say 24 hours) which would give participants the ability to self manage some corrections(when they notice they uploaded the same picture twice, put wrong species etc).

The next step would be setting up a team to correct reported submissions. These could be participants if the system was set up correctly and say a Canadian member moderates US enries, Caribbean moderates Canadians etc. These would have to be volunteers or perhaps could dig up a little something for incentive(free tournament entry, small gift package from sponsors etc).

The next key is to get a good set of sponsors in place and keep on top of them. It shouldn't be too hard to get sponsors to cover the prizes. One thing that a guy should ask is that the sponsors are willing to provide shipping costs of their prizes considering the tournament format. You might be able to line up a few advertisement sponsors as well(pay to advertise on your sponsor page or other spots on website). Then you need to get out and advertise the tournament/website on other fishing/kayaking website, newspapers etc to spread the word and get more people involved.

To give the owner a little incentive to run things and to not lose money I would probably get rid of free entry but you have to keep it cheap, say maybe 10 or 20 dollars. If you have good prizes including some prizes that can be obtained even by people not serious about trying to win(just entering for fun) then the people will enter. What might have to happen is one more year of free entry in which the new management corrects the issues and gives participants the knowledge that things are going to be run properly and prizes will be sent out timely etc then get rid of the free entry in following year. The key as mentioned above is to spread the word on the tournament and get even more involvement so it sparks/keeps sponsor interest and provides a little pocket money for expenses and for the owner.

The way I view it you need 1 or 2 people to handle the advertising/sponsorship work and keep Facebook etc up to date. 1 person to stay on top of the technical aspect of the website and database to keep things updated and working properly(if set up properly it should take minimal work unless making changes). Add a handful of volunteers to moderate entries and the forum etc and it should be successful.

The biggest mistake Oz made imo was not asking for help. He just waited till the end was near so that he could announce his resignation... He should have posted that he needed help to correct entries etc and I am sure people would have stepped forward to help out where possible.

Post by: Homebrew76 on October 28, 2015, 12:28:53 pm
20K?   lol, Good luck with that!   The only way someone is going to spend money to acquire the site is if they are going to run the event for profit, at least 5K per year I would think.   That brings in uncertainty and challanges, especially with gathering and more importantly, retaining, sponsor support. 

Finding enough sponsors to donate prizes to cover all the categories, divisions, and random draws is hard enough.   Asking the sponsors to then cover shipping (international shipping!) is a whole other story.

A site run with the goal of covering costs (techincal, shipping,..etc) and all the rest go back into what is given out would be easier to do, but would require a lot of volunteer time from a strong team, and no one I know is going to shell out 20K for that.
Title: Re: prizes
Post by: Kayak Curtis on October 28, 2015, 04:49:58 pm
Shell out 20gs for a site that has lost most of its support from participants is ridiculous.

First thing anybody considering buying would have to consider would have to be how to regain angler trust and support after the crap shoot the site has become over the last year and half of competition. Having everybody pay to play will more than likely drive even more people away from KW.
If OZ was honest and actually meant what he has said on FB than he never would have been MIA, would have responded to at least some anglers concerns & wouldn't have lied for months to participants. Only to come clean at the end and admit things like prizes were not mailed.
 I think he only came clean because sponsors were starting to look into what happened to the prizes they donated because numerous participants have emailed the sponsors directly. I know I did. It's more about the complete lack of respect he has shown to each and every individual that put time and effort into keeping this thing going, than prizes. The prizes are S@"t anyways I just want to see OZ own up to his word. IMHO anybody that paid should also be refunded their money since they didn't even receive close to what they paid for.
Title: Re: prizes
Post by: shooter on October 30, 2015, 12:29:32 pm
Its great that Eric finally came clean with his issues and downfalls of letting it go this long. Im sure pressure from sponsors and his own personally feelings of letting the contestants down. He should however have came forward way back at beginning of year and maybe could have avoided the backlash from everyone. Afterall these were all his lies and deception. With the small amount of winners , he could have personal emailed all of us and explained his situation and worked out something. The involement of everyone wasnt needed .This didnt happen overnight and has been going on for last couple. The guy by all accounts loves his fishing as No 1 and KW as a stepping stone for recognization of himself and other adventures. As for the purchase of site . Some company within fishing /kayaking world would be best fit. Sponsors prizes , manpower to check site and update and leave the headaches to them and let us provide the fishing and fun that it provides. Hope he finishes up his promises and wish him the best . Fish on

I honestly don't think it will go anywhere, but I've just pitched the idea of taking this over to 'da man'.   Naturally I am not going to say who 'da man' is, other than to say he has the power (no not the 80's cartoon of Hercules) to make things happen. 

Should the idea be well recieved and things happen, you all owe me a beer.  :)  Don't hold your breath though.

I'll buy a beer for lots of kayak anglers if I ever see them.

We should maybe be more concerned about the future of this site CKA !
It costs John money each month to keep this site running and doubt revenues are covering it.
We'll see what happens.

This is a labour of love for me at the moment.  And yet I still hear of people talking about me behind my back.
I wont let this site go down, nor will it close its doors.
I just wish I had the time to be able to put the time into the site like I envisioned.
Yes there is a Cost to running a site like this.  At moment the cost outweigh the revenue, but this site in the right opportunistic hands would be able to make some good revenue on here.

People say that forums are dying because of facebook, but totally disagree.  FB/Twitter are good in their own right, but its such a quick hit there, that most of the stuff you post gets so lost in the shuffle that a lot of the time it gets glossed over or even missed.  On a forum its there, very searchable, and a better resource than FB.  You also cant contact or talk to Mark Zucckerberg with a few clicks... I reply to every message someone sends me.
I use FB/Twitter etc as a tool to promote the site.  But the content I post always links directly back here.

So poorly handled, why on earth haven't they made any announcements of winners...

Kayak was as I understand it a draw based on gold man points so he would have been near the top as well. It would be nice if they would let everyone know instead of just buddy posting he got a kayak...
Title: Re: prizes
Post by: shooter on March 07, 2016, 11:56:30 am
Ok guys heres a suggestion. I posted a thread yesterday on kayak wars site looking for input about the 2015 rule layout. And i posted the 2014 winners as originally posted because i had save it earlier due to the deleting going on on site. Every year the goal of goldman was for the biggest prize draw for everyone to have a chance individual wise to win the outback. Last year guy in 10 or less won it. JOSEPH . Top angler won a livewell and package. Otherwise would be way less players involved in the site if top points won every year. Somewhere along the ways this year. Oz who is still in côntrol of this year gave the hobie away to top angler. Not drawn Brent. This is why i posted hoping someone have that rule / prize written from 2015. Every person going on the original layout of the goldman points got screwed out draw if this was the case. Gene Kelly had a great year but even he was suprised by this. 
Title: Re: prizes
Post by: shooter on March 07, 2016, 12:05:39 pm
Had to add to this to post. This is un no way reflective of new owners in any way. These guys have been great to deal with, helpful and were left with plenty of unknown answers and previous layout of kayak wars. The obligation of 2014 2015 are still up to Oz and his sponsors. He is still to announce whats left with anything else to be given out. Gene was hesitant to post due to that not being done.
Title: Re: prizes
Post by: Ravyak on March 07, 2016, 12:18:10 pm
Are you certain the kayak actually went to top angler and was not a draw? We really don't know unless you have inside information.

I messaged kayakwars before the season even started saying they needed to pressure Oz to announce winners but they didn't do so and now got themselves in a mess... I messaged them again saying they need to clarify and announce winners but will see if they can get Oz to do so.

Oz never announced positions that would get prizes or the prizes last year so I don't know what is going to happen. I feel really bad for the new guys because they acquired a gong show and Oz either hasn't handled his side of the deal properly or the new owners didn't have the prize thing figured out good enough with Oz before doing the deal.

Tyler Gene Ken won by points and had 90 goldman points. I talked to him Sat. He was surprised  and wasnt going to say anything because it has been close to a month and he just got outback and decided to post. Oz well he is the problem here. Unbelieveable the owners only have partial info from last 2 years. And goldman points were always for the outback. Hence my post. More info to come. New owners only at helm for new stuff and running it the way it was intended. They have been quickly fixing up the site
Title: Re: prizes
Post by: shooter on March 07, 2016, 12:46:11 pm
Total points not goldman points. I just listed what he had.

On facebook, check the April 8, 2015 entry by Oz
describing how the draw was done for 2014.

https://www.facebook.com/KayakWars/ (https://www.facebook.com/KayakWars/)

I remember Lusca won the Outback in 2013, he also had the most goldman points for that year.
At that time, I thought he automatically won it for most goldman points, but now
have the Hobie as a draw prize ?
Title: Re: prizes
Post by: shooter on March 07, 2016, 02:56:06 pm
Thats what i posted on the kayak wars new site for a couple guys asking earlier if someone had the winner info. The hobie grand prize has always been listed as the outback and only in goldman points. Joseph was from draw and Lusca year before i believe was the most goldman points that year. Total points guy was never winner of the biggest prize.

The hobie was a draw prize for both 2014 and 2015 years that I participated in. I see it was definitely a draw prize in 2012(on facebook) and there is mention of a gold man points draw for 2013 as well but not specifically mentioning kayak although I am assuming it was the same.

I won't comment on this years hobie until there is an official word from kayakwars or Oz on the matter saying Gene won the hobie for his total points and not based on a draw. And I am not going to do so because even if that is the case it is still possible there is a 2nd hobie to be given away in a draw. We don't know the truth or details and will not know until if/when they are posted.

Ok guys enough time has been wasted. I'm here to announce that i'm the first International Goldman Point Draw Winner. I was asked to hold off but that was a month ago, but because of the release of info from Gene Ken and surprise win of the outback i felt it was time. Hopefully others now will come through and announce if they won anything else out there or not.   None of the extras shown of course. Cant wait to try this baby out. Nobody here has one of these guys (http://i1287.photobucket.com/albums/a621/kayakshooter/stand-up-paddle-10-9-sportsman-sup-inflatable-fishing_zps27heyb81.jpg) (http://s1287.photobucket.com/user/kayakshooter/media/stand-up-paddle-10-9-sportsman-sup-inflatable-fishing_zps27heyb81.jpg.html)(http://i1287.photobucket.com/albums/a621/kayakshooter/Sportsman-action-mountains-forest-packed-camping-full_jpg_1600x1600__generated_zps4h5c7mcz.jpg) (http://s1287.photobucket.com/user/kayakshooter/media/Sportsman-action-mountains-forest-packed-camping-full_jpg_1600x1600__generated_zps4h5c7mcz.jpg.html)(http://i1287.photobucket.com/albums/a621/kayakshooter/img_6749_zpsehf6ozh2.jpg) (http://s1287.photobucket.com/user/kayakshooter/media/img_6749_zpsehf6ozh2.jpg.html)

Curtis that is the problem. Oz hasn't returned messages back from me or Gene on when we could announce . We waited for a month now. That's why Gene posted his on kwars and after talking to him decided enough was enough. Notsure who else won what. Ive sent my post on kwars facebook also awaiting them to put on and hopefully others  come forward that have not yet. im sure new owners want this done and outta way also.

The new owners have stated they will release results after Oz has finished sending out all prizes. They don't want to announce winners that Oz doesn't send prizes too...

Congrats on the SUP shooter, makes the work worthwhile.

I don't get why they wouldn't post any of these results especially if they started doing draws...

Thanks guys . Hey Tyler Ive known for over a month now. But Oz being who he is never got back to me or Gene when we asked when we could say something. That why we wanted to come out, so guys weren't wondering what was going on. Genes winning of the outback was the biggest shocker to me because it has never been laid out ever as a total points winner ever in this event. He was stunned to hear he won it also. And my email was  a week before him sent to me and announced about winning the Hobie Grand Prize and it was the SUP. Guys playing the goldman category all year are gonna be scratching there heads when my post finally goes through today on site. I was told announcement for rest of prizes will be announced  shortly after people have received them.

I hate SUPs, they're like the yuppie fad for fishing, they do nothing to make it easier to get at fish. But I realize that a lot of people like them, to each their own.

But that one looks sweet, and inflateable is definitely the way to go, stuff that in the trunk for trips when fishing isn't the primary goal, but you might get a chance to stop on a shoreline somewhere. Super cool.

Congrats on the win Shooter, despite the complete lack of support from the owners last year it still looks like some people will benefit from their hard work.

Thank. Yep i would have loved to get the outback that we all thought was up for grabs. However great prize and suits my up north or back woods areas. And has everything you need to get on right away and at only 50 lbs. And Hobie rep that i talked to said couldnt believe how rugged area you can hit with it.
Title: Re: prizes
Post by: EagleEyesFlash on March 09, 2016, 10:05:28 am
You will look good on that SUP Joe, congratulations.

For 2013 the person with the most Kayakman gold points got the outback.
For 2014, guess they didn't want a repeat winner so Oz made it a draw prize.
( you sure JOESPH won it in the draw Joe ?, thought OZ gave to point leader..Joesph..matanaska..North- West )
For 2015, I guess Oz was a bit bias ( keep outback in US ) and gave the outback to the point leader.
Prizes have been given in the past to the top 20 ( 2013 ) and then top 10 ( 2014)
in the gold point standings. In 2014 prizes were given also to the regional point leaders.
For 2013 certificates and token prizes given to top 3 teams and individuals in each region.
Some additional prizes were also given in the draw based on gold points, so that everyone with a gold point could win something for those years.

No word here on any prize, and I assume only the 2 Hobies have been given.

The new owners have dropped the word GOLD points and refer to Kayak Man points.
Hope they clarify, as per Otownyak's request.

In the rules somewhere, it has always been mentioned NOT to play, if your main intention
is to win something.

Yes the rules used to state the following.

Quote
Prizes are awarded at the end of the KW season when all prizes have been collected from sponsors or 'made' in special for the prizes. In the event a sponsor is unable to fullfill their prize donation, EC and KW will do its best in obtaining a replacement for the individual(s). In all likelihood there will be a large amount of random prizes to be distributed to both top teams and/or personal achievements. Do not enter this in hopes of immediately securing prizes for top placement, but rather the avenue for enjoyment and entertaining others.

So pretty much Oz can hand them out to who he wants and depending on what he can get from sponsors.

As I mentioned there used to be a prizes page but it could have been years old for all I know as it was never linked to by the main website(think I found it by googling). It was the only place I remember ever seeing any prizes listed.

Either way, Outback or SUP or other options are cool and good prizes for this event. Some SUP's move surprisingly quick and I could see one being advantageous in sight fishing situations.

Yep Brent the layout wasnt even layed out for 2015. I have the info new owners had supplied to me.  And yes Joseph won the yak from goldman draw. I posted on site for someone else.  Clarity from the start would have been great for everyone and was just assumed. Thats why i tried my best along with new owners to get any info and confirmation. Plenty of guys like ourselves and others chased a chance at winning like others before. As for prizes left this year is at 18 and not sure what/when or where they are headed. Hope the best for yourself and others that finished near the top

Kayak wars announced yours and Gene's prizes said the rest will be announced as shipped.

According to them Gene's prize was for the most points and yours was for most gold man points. So gold man points draws still haven't taken place or been announced yet. 

The new owners already have some sponsors lined up and are going to be announcing them shortly. They are planning to try and get prizes listed so people know what they are competing for this year which will be nice.
