Minneapolis, Minn.- One of the biggest events in tournament fishing is the Forrest Wood Cup, getting underway this week in Shreveport, Louisiana. TESTRIDE will offer free rides in an Evinrude-powered Ranger Boat on Saturday and Sunday, August 17 and 18 in conjunction with the Cup event. Starting immediately after the take-off Saturday and Sunday mornings, TESTRIDE will be free to the public and run from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the River South Marina, 250 Red River South Marina Road in Bossier City, Louisiana. Located at the same site as the morning take off and afternoon return of the pros, several models from Ranger Boats powered with Evinrude outboards will be available. Driven by professional anglers, the rigs showcase Minn Kota trolling motors, Lakemaster digital mapping, iPilot Link control for Minn Kota motors and quality Dobyns fishing rods.

“This is a big event and we’re excited to showcase the best boats and outboard engine in the industry with TESTRIDE,” said George Feder, TESTRIDE coordinator. “Whether folks are hard-core shopping and want to take advantage of an incentive to purchase in the next 60 days, or if they might not buy for a year or two and just want to explore the Ranger-Evinrude brands-come on out.”

Logo’d t-shirts are a complimentary gift for the first 50 to take a TESTRIDE. “This is a great opportunity for fans in the Shreveport area to get on the water in a boat designed by the legend himself-Forrest L. Wood,” shared Bart Schad, Vice President of Marketing at Ranger Boats. “Everyone has a chance to experience the fit and finish of a quality-built Ranger Boat.”

“We know our customers have choices when it comes to outboard engines and that decisions can take months or sometimes even longer,” shared Krista Heidgerken of Evinrude. “That’s why we encourage anyone in town for the Forrest Wood Cup that might consider a boat and motor package in the next year or two to attend TESTRIDE and learn more about the quality Evinrude E-TEC features that the pros depend on.”

Liddle Marketing Company organizes the national on-the-water TESTRIDE events. “We are excited to bring this national program to the premier FLW tournament of the year-the Forrest Wood Cup,” added Liddle. “This is a great opportunity to experience an Evinrude-powered Ranger Boat on the water. Part of the fun is watching the winner take home $500,000, too.”
