Hey, coming up with ideas' is the easy part, making them stick is what takes the work!!
Besides, the whole format is looking a lot more serious than the idea I originally bounced off the forum, so kudus to Alison and her 'team' for all the background effort!!
I originally promised to get prizes sponsored as well, so will carry thru my part of the deal.

Chow! :D

Well if you need the Aussie records Ive got the file on my PC... :)

I would suggest a percentage point system, where the official record in the divers country counts as 100%. Where no record exists that species doesnt count... Otherwise Im gonna win with a 200g Weedfish.. ;-)

Fish should be weighed on certified scales. Like the local butchers or fish shop. No bathroom scales. Picture of scale value should be mandatory.

Otherwise the rules should probably follow the IUSA rules, ie no assists by dive buddy, no shooting from a boat, no trawling of teasers behind boat, no explosives rofl

Don't need to make it that complex, more simple rules will encourage people to contribute more, the important thing is pictures should come regullar basis from members.

I think Sahdow is right though, we should base ourselves on the spearfishing competition criterion for each local area. For example, in Gibraltar a 3 kg dorada is pretty normal, here in the Costa Brava the same size would be outstanding - so how to judge? Would Shane's or Memo's 4 kilo dorada be equivalent to our 3 kilo one? Or is a 10 kilo grouper better than a 4 kilo dorada in the Costa Brava? Normally the local comps already have a pretty good point system worked out, but how to compare this to other areas?

We'ld have to maken an excel sheet to cover all the local areas and species in the world so anyone could see at a glance how their fish ranks with others. For fairness to be present and accounted there's a lot of background work and research to be done. Any ideas?

Hiya

We could then possibly look at the percentage weight of a particular specie compared to THAT countries spearfishing records. We could then ONLY allow fish that are ON that particular countries record list.

If a country is so backward as to not have spearfishing records... joke...

But seriously, if Egypt doesnt keep Spearing records, then use the nearest country that does. Enough of our senior guys cover the world that making a call on what to use shouldn't be that hard.

And if its gonna be a fair comp, it will get very technical, they always do!

Something that WILL have to be ensured is certified scales. Too many people out there think their fish is 10kg because their bathroom scales tell them so, plonk the same fish on proper scales and it wont break 5kg.

Thats exactly what I was thinking when I noticed the dates on the posts, if it ever went down Im really sorry I missed it :waterwork .
If that is infact the case and some of us missed this amazing comp, what about doing another one, maybe in 07 :confused:

Im thinking its time to revive this thread, seein that weve got a whole bunch of relatively new members here, myself for one, who would really like the chance to see what comes out of the waters in the rest of the world. Could a web hosted comp like this be accomplished? I do think there is a maybe...
