FLW Outdoors Announces Contingency Awards

With the 2010 season finally under way, FLW Outdoors and its sponsors have continued to raise the level of financial commitment in the form of new contingency awards for anglers who continue to compete across a broad spectrum of FLW Outdoors tournament trails. During the upcoming season, Evinrude, Cabela’s and Ranger Boats have each committed to expanding the purses that anglers can net at a variety of FLW Outdoors events. Below is a summary of the contingency awards that will be offered during the 2010 season. Evinrude Outboards contingency program

Anglers powering with Evinrude E-TEC outboard engines could be eligible for up to $15,000 in contingency money in the new 2010 Evinrude Contingency Program. The new program is an additional $425,000 investment into the overall tournament strategy for Evinrude. Qualifying professional Walleye anglers who are a 2008 or newer, original registered Evinrude E-TEC owner, fishing the FLW Walleye Pro Tour and Championship are eligible for contingency awards under the new program. Evinrude will award $8,000 to the qualifying Evinrude winning pro in each qualifying FLW Walleye Tour event and $15,000 to the winning Evinrude pro angler at the 2010 FLW Walleye Tour Championship. Additional contingency money extends through 20th place in the Pro Division.

Co-anglers competing at the FLW Walleye Championship who are registered owners of a 2007 or newer Evinrude E-TEC engine are also eligible for contingency dollars. Evinrude will award $5,000 to the winning qualifying co-angler at the FLW Walleye Championship. In addition, qualifying anglers participating in BFL tournaments and the BFL All-American are eligible for contingency monies. Evinrude will award $1,000 to the highest placing registered Evinrude owner at each BFL event in 2010. If a qualified Evinrude owner wins the BFL All-American, Evinrude will pay a bonus of $10,000.

All contingency payouts will be administered by FLW Outdoors, allowing for immediate payouts at each tournament.

Cabela’s Angler Cash program

During the 2010 season, FLW Outdoors anglers will have yet another way to dramatically increase their tournament winnings thanks to Cabela’s innovative “Angler Cash” contingency award program.

For starters, FLW Tour pros and co-anglers who successfully register for the program will be eligible to receive as much as $2,500 in bonus payouts for being the highest finishing Cabela’s qualified angler at any of the six FLW Tour events during the 2010 season. At each of the aforementioned events, one pro and one co-angler will be guaranteed a contingency award payment of $2,500 – representing a total regular-season FLW Tour contingency purse of $30,000.

In addition, both the highest-finishing Cabela’s contingency qualified pro and co-angler will receive $5,000 at the 2010 Forrest Wood Cup – slated to take place in Atlanta, Ga., from Aug. 5-8.

However, FLW Tour pros aren’t the only anglers who will be able to benefit from the program. FLW Series anglers in both the Eastern and Western Divisions will also be eligible to receive a $1,000 Cabela’s gift card as the highest-finishing contingency-qualified pro and co-angler during each of the 2010 FLW Series regular-season events.

Finally, FLW College Fishing anglers will be able to get in on the action as well. At each of the five FLW College Regional events, the highest-finishing Cabela’s contingency qualified team will receive a $1,000 Cabela’s gift card for their collegiate bass club program. In addition, the winning team at the 2010 National Guard FLW College Fishing National Championship will receive a $5,000 Cabela’s gift card for their collegiate bass club program.
