While the Forrest Wood Cup is being contested at Lake Ouachita this weekend, the man for whom the event is named will be in Hot Springs, Ark., helping promote a new boat brand.
Forrest L. Wood, the founder of Ranger Boats, will be at Trader Bill’s Outdoor Sports on Saturday morning to assist in the unveiling of a new model in the Vexus Boats lineup. The event, which will feature other Vexus models, is scheduled to run from 8 a.m. to noon. Keith Daffron, Wood’s grandson, is part of the executive team at Vexus, a new Arkansas-based boat manufacturer that made a splash at the Bassmaster Classic in March when it introduced three aluminum models (AVX189, AVX1880 and AVX1980).
