Each tournament offers a payback through 100th place and a top prize of a $10,000 Ranger purchase certificate plus a berth into the Forrest Wood Cup. Second place in each event is a $7,500 purchase certificate plus a berth into the Forrest Wood Cup. In both cases, the team boater will advance to the Forrest Wood Cup as a pro, and the boater’s partner will advance as a co-angler. Ranger will cover all travel expenses for both qualifiers to compete in the Forrest Wood Cup and will supply all qualifiers with apparel to be worn during the Forrest Wood Cup. There will also be a random drawing among competitors in each tournament for a fully rigged Ranger Z20 Comanche. Both events will be televised on FSN (Fox Sports Net), Americana Outdoors and Versus.
The Forrest Wood Cup will include qualifiers from the Wal-Mart FLW Tour, Wal-Mart FLW Series, Stren Series, Wal-Mart Bass Fishing League, Ranger Owners Tournament Championship Series and The Bass Federation (TBF) competing for a top pro award of $500,000 plus a Ranger bonus of $500,000 for a total of $1 million for qualified Ranger owners. The top co-angler award in the Forrest Wood Cup is $50,000 for qualified Ranger owners.
