You can make changes right up to Blastoff of the event.   Just post a new one instead of editing your old one.  Easier for an Old Guy to keep track.

Sadly there are no Bullet's entered I believe.   Guess they have a Drag Race of something going on that day.  I was going to offer my empty beer cans as an incentive.

We Have A Winner.

Since no one picked Jordan Lee.   The prize goes to Hooksetter who picked second place Brent Ehrler.   Let me know if you are coming to the DK Open and I will bring your entry money and the prizes.   If you are not coming PM me your address and I will mail it to you. 

Also let me know what kind of boat you have.  Ranger and Skeeter owners are eligible for extra money.
Title: Re: 2018 Bassmaster Guess The Winner Contest.
Post by: Hooksetter on March 18, 2018, 09:25:40 PM
Wow! I did not expect that. I thought for sure someone had Lee. Thank you.

Just hang on to it for now, I am trying to arrange it so I can go to the DK Open this year. It falls on my wife's birthday weekend and we usually go away for that weekend. We are currently in negotiations and I am hopeful.

I run a BassCat so you will have to award the contingency money to someone eligible.

Wonder how long it will be before Ranger has an ad about the top 5 finishers at the classic in Ranger Boats.  A series heavily supported by Skeeter.

Post by: djkimmel on March 19, 2018, 09:24:41 PM
Congratulations Hooksetter! I seem to always schedule the event so you can't make it! Not on purpose.

I don't know about the Ranger ad though I usually get a press release from them and I'm sure I will get one from this event.

It was odd for me because I saw a bunch of the ole Ranger folks sitting at the breakfast table during the Classic with a familiar gentleman wearing a big white cowboy hat, and I didn't even notice they all had matching clothes on that did not say Ranger... Had to figure this out the next day that they were all wearing Vexus, which I hadn't heard about. They were secretive about their upcoming fiberglass boats though they had aluminum at the Classic Expo (they've built a new facility in Flippin). There were maybe 3 bass boat dealers there I had never heard of. Maybe 4, I forget now?

I wonder what this means for the general working folks at the Ranger factory in Flippin? Flippin isn't a huge town.

Hooksetter    If you are not coming to the DK Open   PM me your address and I will send you the prize package.   Went to Fishing Complete last week so I have a couple more baits to send you. 

Sorry about the Ranger / Skeeter money.
