Skeeter to again sponsor bass-fishing tourney


Skeeter Products Inc., manufacturer of Skeeter brand boats, renewed its partnership as "exclusive sponsor" of the Bass Champs Tournament Trail for 2010.

"We are pleased to continue our sponsorship with Bass Champs, and have felt first-hand the tremendous impact that this partnership has brought to Skeeter," said Ben Jarrett, Skeeter national sales manager, in a statement.

"We view this sponsorship as one of our primary channels to reach potential Skeeter owners and bass fishing enthusiasts, and the Bass Champs organization is one of the most respected tournament trails in the industry," he added.

For the 2010 Bass Champs Tournament Trail, Skeeter is offering a "Double Your Money Bonus," up to $5,000 for the highest finisher fishing from a Skeeter boat (within three years of original purchase) at every Bass Champs event.

Additionally, Skeeter offers a "Dealer Bonus" of $250 for the first team at each event to have an exact event weight and a signed business card from a Skeeter dealer.
