State Battle
The Vs part of the tournament is between total weight of each
state. No state will have more fish weighed than
another, we will take the top number of boats of the state that 
has the least amount of boats. For example, if Va
has 25 boats and Nc has 35 boats then only the top 25 boats 
from each state will be counted. This will determine 
which state receives the trophy /plaque and bragging rights. 
Everyone needs to weigh their fish no matter 
how small to add more weight to their team’s total weight.
The state that wins may decide on where they want to display
their plaque. Example, Local tackle shop, store, or
outfitter.
