BENTON, Ky. (March 22, 2011) – Winning a tournament is great, and even greater is the chance to get an extra bump in the wallet from cash bonus incentives as a benefit of being a PAA Tournament Series competitor.
PAA members have four great ways to earn bonus money for winning sanctioned Tournament Series events this season. Members may win money from Bass Pro Shops, BoatUS, Power-Pole and ProPatterns incentives programs.
Contingency money is available in the PAA Tournament Series and PAA All Star Series events. Up to $36,000 will be available – $9,000 at each event, including the PAA All Star Series – to pros meeting eligibility requirements.
In the PAA Tournament Series events, anglers who meet contingency partner requirements will be eligible for up to $7,000 from Bass Pro Shops with a qualifying Nitro/Mercury boat and motor combination; $500 from BoatUS guaranteed to the highest-placing BoatUS member finisher; $500 if the tournament winner is a Power-Pole Captains Cash member; and $1,000 if the tournament winner is a member of ProPatterns.
“We appreciate the continued support of our partners throughout the industry,” said Danny Blandford, PAA Program Director. “These are all products and services used by many of our anglers and we are likely to award several thousand dollars in additional winnings to our competitors in 2011. Our General members and fans should also take time to review these programs because there are a variety of ways to win at the local level, as well.”
