Ranger® Boats Offers Exclusive Benefits Club for Customers/Owners

FLIPPIN, AR (November 4, 2003) Celebrating the legendary pride and camaraderie of its family of owners, Ranger Boats has introduced the Ranger Owners Group. The all-new group is designed to reinforce the unique bond and enthusiasm of Ranger Boat owners while also rewarding them with a host of exclusive member benefits and privileges. The program includes a variety of Ranger branded merchandise, a quarterly newsletter, Ranger Cup enrollment, vehicle decal and a membership card (entitling the cardholder to participation in exclusive existing and future promotions). Billed as the most prestigious owner's group in the entire fishing industry, members are automatically eligible to participate in America's premiere contingency fishing program---Ranger Cup. With well over one million dollars in cash already awarded to Ranger owners, Ranger Cup is delivering the largest contingency paybacks in competitive fishing history.

“The Ranger Owners Group is another example of the strong relationship we have with our family of owners. With a reputation for continually delivering the highest customer satisfaction, we never stop working to exceed customer expectations while delivering the absolute best value,” Ranger Boats President Randy Hopper said. “This program recognizes the pride of ownership that Ranger owners possess and actively display. It’s one more way for us to show our appreciation of their loyalty to Ranger Boats.”

The Ranger Owners Group Premium membership is included with any new boat purchased after July 1, 2003 from an authorized Ranger dealer. Current Ranger boat owners, regardless of year model, will be able to join the Ranger Owners Group at either the Premium Level or Cup Level.

Inaugural benefits for all Ranger Owners Group members (both Premium and Cup Level) include:
Boat & Angler (official quarterly newsletter from Ranger Boats)
