Plymouth, WI – June 18, 2010:
Following the first two events of the 2010 AIM tournament season, and with input from the Pro Angler competitors, AIM is announcing changes to the Cash Pool programs. As before, Cash Pools will be administered by AIM at each Pro Walleye Series™ event. Pro Anglers participation is optional, and entrants will compete ONLY against the other Pro’s in the Pool.
Starting with the Green Bay AIM Pro Walleye Series™ event, the Cash Pools will be divided into TWO categories:
1. An entry of $200 (including a $100 entry in the Big Fish Pool and a $100 entry in the Big Basket pool.) Big Fish and Big Basket awards are paid to the Cash Pool participants on both Day One and Day Two.***
2. And/or an entry of $300 in the Super Cash Pool. Super Cash Pool awards are paid to participants after the Day Three results are finalized.
In addition, the South Dakota Walleye Classic has added an additional $1,000 award that will be paid to the Big Fish/Big Basket Cash Pool entrant that weighs the single largest basket at each event as part of their marketing partnership with AIM.
***This $1000 bonus per event will be added over and above the Pro Angler entries – BUT you must participate in the Big Fish/Big Basket Pool to be eligible.
As previously administered, it doesn’t matter where the highest placing Cash Pool participants finish in the overall tournament standings. All participating Pro Anglers would additionally win their respective prizes in the Cash Pools. A table that describes payouts will be distributed at each tournament and posted on the AIM website (www.aimfishing.com).
Scott Matheson, President and CEO of AIM stated, “At the suggestion of our Pro Angler owners and members, we have created these Cash Pools to increase the excitement and the payouts available at each tournament. AIM is committed to ‘raising the bar’ when it comes to making our events fun and profitable for all our Pro Angler competitors. By participating in the Super Cash Pools a Pro Angler may significantly increase his or her payday!”
He also adds, “Each of these Cash Pools is 100% optional and completely voluntary. Furthermore, 100% of the funds collected will be distributed to the winning participants based on their performance. We are very excited to supplement these three Cash Pools with the bonuses offered by the South Dakota Walleye Classic. The pools will be an extra source of income for the winning participants – essentially a tournament within each tournament. AIM will only administer these funds and will not keep a single dollar.”
Participation in the AIM Pro Walleye Series™ Cash Pools will not require advance registration. Pro Anglers can elect to enter at the time of tournament registration.
Also, these Cash Pools are in addition to the award for the biggest fish recorded over the entire tournament. “Me and My Catch” will provide a $500 certificate to the Pro Angler who catches the biggest walleye, valid for a “Me and My Catch” photo replica. This award does not require participation in the Cash Pools.
