Top Tournament Anglers to Receive 'Garmin® Grand'
OLATHE, Kan. Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin
Ltd. (Nasdaq: GRMN), is pleased to add a cash incentive
Grand Giveaway to reward top anglers who use Garmin
sonar products when they fish the pro (boater) side of leading
tournament circuits. When these anglers win on the EverStart Series,
Wal-Mart Bass Fishing League, Texas Tournament Trail, or RCL Walleye
Circuit, they can count on an additional $1,000 cash prize from
"This is truly a win-win situation for boat owners,"
said Gary Kelley, Garmin's director of marketing. "Garmin
sonar products come with our patented See-Thru® technology and
Depth Gain Control (DCG®) that help anglers locate potentially
prize-winning fish hiding in structure or in thermoclines
which, in turn, could land them a check for $1,000."
To be eligible for the Garmin Grand, a tournament angler must
have a Garmin sonar product installed on his boat. Qualifying
products include the FishFinder
100, FishFinder 160,
FishFinder 240, GPSMAP®
168 Sounder, or GPSMAP
185 Sounder. Co-anglers are not eligible.
Slated to begin in April, the Garmin Grand Giveaway will be
available at more than 100 fishing tournaments across the country
in 2001, creating a total jackpot of over $100,000 in cash incentives
for Garmin-owning anglers.
