Trophy Talk Teleclass

How would you like to engage in live discussion with the likes of Doug Hannon, Fish Chris Wolfgram, Bob Crupi, Bill Warman, Mike Long, John  Deckard or Chuck Bauer? What if this was so simple all you had to do is pick up the phone to speak with them?

Guess What?

It's almost that simple when you take advantage of the WorldRecordBass Monthly Teleclass called . . .

Teleclass Schedule (Subject to Change)


If increasing the size of your catches is important to you, if you are interested in out-of-the-box big bass techniques and unorthodox strategies, if you want to access information that will lead you to the trophy wall of your life, then join Big Bass Hunters Chuck Bauer and John Deckard for their monthly teleclass called Trophy Talk.

 

That’s correct, starting in March 2002 and every month thereafter, Chuck and John will join many others around North America for a one-hour, once a month interactive and discussionary conference call. Each call will feature Chuck and John as the facilitators, a specific topic will be covered for the first thirty minutes of the call, and the back end thirty minutes will be for open question, answer and discussion.

What’s even better, there is no cost for this one hour call except for what you pay on your normal long distance rates. So, here is an example of what your investment would be:

  • .06 cents per minute long distance rate (adjust based on your rate)
  • 60 minutes
  • $3.60 per call - your investment

Ask yourself this, what is it going to cost you by not being on the call?

WorldRecordBass takes care of the conference call time, phone number and the time invested by the two nationally known Big Bass Hunters. So, for the price of a spinnerbait, you can come together with other bass fishermen all across North America to take advantage of this useful information.

The special Trophy Talk Teleclass phone number is:

1-407-649-4256


Have questions about Trophy Talk?

JUST WHAT IS TROPHY TALK?

Trophy Talk is the bass fishin’ virtual classroom of the new millennium. Thanks to advances in telecommunications, bass fishermen dial-in for training classes. You learn from the convenience and safety of your own home or office! When you get a group of fishermen who are ready to learn, the hour is packed with ideas, suggestions, and high-level discussion.

CAN YOU REALLY LEARN VIA THE TROPHY TALK FORMAT?

Yes. It's high tech and high touch. It is a revolutionary medium for teaching and learning. We've received only positive feedback from others about this learning and communication environment.

WHO BENEFITS FROM TROPHY TALK?

Any fisherman who wants to be challenged with new ideas and strategies. Beyond that, these classes help you get focused on practical skills and ideas that will help you catch more Trophies! Many times, it's a matter of simply modifying small things that, over time, make a huge difference in the size of your fish.

HOW MANY PARTICIPANTS PER TROPHY TALK?

There are usually around 25 to 50 people per Trophy Talk. We do have the capacity for up to 150 participants.

WHAT IS MY TIME COMMITMENT?

Each Trophy Talk is usually one hour. Beyond that, Chuck and John just might give you homework assignments that you will need to report back on for the next class. A small time investment for maximum return.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TYPICAL TROPHY TALK?

Trophy Talk is very interactive -- a lot of sharing, questions, and comments. Each month, we begin with a roll call, then discuss what we covered the previous month, cover a specific topic for the current month, and end with an open question, answer and discussion period. And, though you can't "see" your fellow fishermen, you do hear them. The flow of conversation works surprisingly smooth.

WHAT IF I MISS A TROPHY TALK?

Because you do not have any financial commitment, it is not a challenge if you miss a class. Beyond that, you could encourage a fellow fisherman to join Trophy Talk and take notes for you.


Trophy Talk Tech Tips

DISABLE CALL WAITING

If you have call-waiting, please disable it before dialing into Trophy Talk. For most local phone companies, you disable call-waiting by picking up the phone, waiting for the dial tone, dialing *70 (that's star seven zero), waiting for the dial tone again, and then dialing the Trophy Talk number.

CALL AT THE APPOINTED TIME

Please dial Trophy Talk at the appointed time. You will be connected to the other callers automatically without dialing any further numbers.

WHEN YOU JOIN TROPHY TALK

Those already connected will hear a beep when you join the call and either Chuck or John will usually say something like, "Hi, who just joined the call?" or "Welcome, hold on a moment while everyone joins the call." If you're late, Chuck or John may not acknowledge you. That doesn't mean you're not welcome. Just listen silently until you catch up with the trophy topic before speaking.

IN GENERAL...

Please say your name and city before speaking so that people will have no difficulty identifying you.


Trophy Talk Netiquette

MUTE BUTTON

Use your telephone's mute button, if there is one. Background noise, the dog barking, radio, etc., can be a challenge for other participants. If you don't have a mute button, arrange to call from a quiet location.

BREATHING

Some people breathe "heavier" than others. Most heavy breathers don't realize it. (Who, ME?) So, we ask everyone to hold the mouthpiece or telephone headset microphone a bit away from their mouth and nose, unless they are speaking. This sounds pretty silly until you're on a call with a heavy breather. After that, you'll understand why it matters!

TWO-LINE PHONES

If you have a two-line phone, please turn the ringer off, for the second line. If you don't, and you get a call during Trophy Talk, it is heard as a shrill noise to every person on Trophy Talk.

PETS (INCLUDING YOUR PET BASS)

If you're in a smaller Trophy Talk of 10-30 callers, your dog will probably woof at precisely the time some comic relief is needed, so it's not usually a problem. But if you're in a larger Trophy Talk of 30-150 callers, please put pets in another room.

SPEAKERPHONES AND CELL PHONES

Don't use them!!! Cell phones and speakerphones are wonderful things but we ask that you not speak into them when sharing on Trophy Talk. Due to the poor clarity/quality and the large amount of background noise, please use a regular telephone when dialing into Trophy Talk.

SHARING

Chuck and John will ask for callers to share or respond, throughout the call. However, please wait to be prompted. Say something like, "This is Chris from Vacaville." Chuck or John will say, "Yes, Chris, go ahead." Then make your comments or ask your question. Always use Chuck's or John’s name and wait until they indicate that you can proceed. On smaller calls, this formality isn't usually needed and there is a natural flow of people sharing and discussing.

CROSSTALK

If another caller says something upon which you wish to comment or about which you want additional information, please go through Chuck or John . Let them play traffic cop. You might say something like, "John, can I ask Chris to repeat what he just said?" On smaller calls, this may not be necessary, but on larger calls, it is an important factor in the success of Trophy Talk.

EARLY/LATE

Please don't call Trophy Talk before the scheduled time -- another conference may be in session. If you're late to the call, no problem, just dial in and be silent until you catch on to what's being discussed. You may or may not be officially welcomed -- but probably not, so as not to disturb the flow of the call. That doesn't mean you're not welcome! If you're over 10 minutes late, be VERY careful about asking questions, as they may well have been asked earlier.


 When Challenges Occur

PHONE RINGS YET IT DOESN'T CONNECT

One or two things have occurred: you have either misdialed or your timing is off. Check the number and redial. If still no success, then check the time. Usually meeting times are listed in Eastern Time (New York Time). Your time zone within North America:

  • 10:00 P.M. -- Eastern Time
  • 9:00 P.M. -- Central Time
  • 8:00 P.M. -- Mountain Time
  • 7:00 P.M. -- Pacific Time

PHONE RINGS AND YOU HEAR A RECORDED MESSAGE

The message may say something like "All circuits are busy, please try your call again later." What this means is that not enough long-distance lines are open to connect you to Trophy Talk.

PHONE RINGS AND YOU HEAR A BUSY SIGNAL

This means you either misdialed or Trophy Talk is full. Check the number and dial again. If you still receive a busy signal, then Trophy Talk is full and is likely to remain full for the duration of the teleconference.
