RANGER BOATS ANNOUNCES "RANGER CUP UNIVERSITY" CONTINGENCY PROGRAM FOR COLLEGIATE ANGLERS

Program open to both FLW- and Boat US-affiliated college teams

FLIPPIN (February 17, 2011) Collegiate anglers don't have to wait any longer to cash in on pro-style incentives. In a recent announcement, Ranger Boats unveiled its newest contingency program, Ranger Cup University, designed to support the enthusiasm and dedication of competitive college anglers across the country.

Modeled after the most lucrative contingency program in the industry, the Ranger CupĀ®, Ranger Cup University is open to collegiate anglers fishing in either FLW- or Boat US-affiliated competitions. Signup for Ranger Cup University is free and exclusively for collegiate anglers, regardless of which brand of boat they own. To remain qualified in the program, anglers need only adhere to simple clothing and logo requirements. In addition, as part of the Ranger Cup University program, participants will be able to receive extra discounts on custom collegiate tournament jerseys through Gemini Sports Marketing. With no artwork or set-up fees, Ranger Cup University members can purchase fully customized jerseys for a special rate designed exclusively for collegiate anglers.

Like its professional counterpart, the Ranger Cup, Ranger Cup University makes on-the-water success very lucrative for its participants. Each registered member with the highest finish at a Boat US major or FLW regional tournament will receive a certificate for $100 in official Ranger merchandise through RangerWear.com. Moreover, each registered member with the highest finish at the Boat US and FLW Championship events will receive $250 cash.

The 2011 season culminates with a grand prize to determine the Ranger Cup University Team of the Year. The highest finishing team, with both members registered with Ranger Cup University, at the Boat US and FLW College championship events will compete, head-to-head, in a one-day competition at Texas' famed Choke Canyon Reservoir. As part of this all-expenses-paid, grand prize package, which includes airfare, lodging and meals, each team will compete from fully rigged Ranger boats for a prize package including $2,000 cash and sponsor merchandise. The event will even be televised as part of a special airing of Americana Outdoors.
