Minneapolis, Minn. (Aug. 6, 2012) – The Ranger-Evinrude TESTRIDEâ„¢ program merges with the biggest FLW event of the season this weekend: The Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Lanier in Georgia. The open public invitation to attend these free activities kicks off at 10:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, August 10th and 11th . The rides launch from Laurel Park and will conclude at 3:00 p.m. both days. A professional angler will take participants out for a free ride on Lake Lanier showcasing all the benefits of an Evinrude-powered Ranger Boat. Enjoyed at this same location two years ago, TESTRIDE affords community residents another on-the-water fun activity tied to FLW Outdoors’ biggest tournament of the year.

“This is a great program from Ranger-Evinrude with super incentives for those that participate,” shared Janet Parker, pro staff member for the TESTRIDE sponsors. Parker will be one of the professional bass anglers offering rides in the Z500 series Rangers with state-of-the-art 250 Evinrude H.O.s and E-TECs in Georgia. “A package for $1500 in incentives helps potential buyers purchase a Ranger-Evinrude boat in the near future. Anyone on the fence should come take a ride for that benefit alone.” For those still shopping, free t-shirts and Rapala lures for the first 50 riders should whet the appetite.
Enjoy product demonstration from Minn Kota trolling motors, Talon shallow-anchoring systems, Rapala lures and various boat/motor combinations from Evinrude-Ranger.

“TESTRIDE gives us a showcase for the best bass boats on the market,” shared George Liddle, Ranger Boats rep and host of TESTRIDE. “Many buyers have compared features and benefits of different models, but this is a great opportunity to get on the water for the ultimate test.”

Both Ranger and Evinrude will be exhibiting at the Expo. Stop by all the sponsors’ booths for additional product information. “TESTRIDE events provide Evinrude the opportunity to expose our engines in a hands-on way at the Forrest Wood Cup,” shared Krista Heidgerken of Evinrude Outboards. “Show attendees can experience the power of an E-TEC or H.O. and learn about reliability and superior design from the pro anglers that depend on them.”

“We get to know more anglers during TESTRIDES and invite them to join the Ranger family,” added Bart Schad, Ranger Boats Vice President of Marketing.  “Consumers get a chance to be up close to professionals and their boats, where we can showcase the real differences that make up our legendary ride, handling and features.”
