Edwin Evers, winner of the recent Bassmaster Elite Series event at the St. Johns River in Florida, has launched an Optima Batteries-sponsored tour of Bass Pro Shops locations this at which he conducts seminars and talks about marine battery care and maintenance.
One fan will win an expenses-paid fishing trip with Evers through a sweepstakes conducted by Optima and BPS. To register, fans must be present during his visit to their local store (no online entries are allowed).
“I’ve been an Optima supporter for a long time and I appreciate the opportunity to travel and meet with my fans,” he said. “Optima BlueTop batteries have the power and durability to keep my boat running when I need them most. In fact, during the 2007 Bassmaster Series, I was running across Lake Erie when I noticed my motor was hanging off and my boat filled with water. Luckily, my Optimas kept the pumps running long enough for me to be rescued and win the tournament.”
Here are the remaining stops on the tour (times are noon to 3 p.m.):
> April 30 – Pearl, Miss.
> May 1 – Lawrenceville, Ga.
> May 21 – Grapevine, Texas
> June 4 – Broken Arrow, Okla.
