New Ranger Cup and TBF program rules

To all as you may or may not know the entire White River Marine Group boat owners bonus programs have changed. They are all the same now Ranger Cup (Triton bonus, Nitro Bonus ) for TBF and the state federation Ranger Cup is the same as everyone else now.
There is also a NEW program JUST for TBF. It is called Ranger Federation Bonus program and will be similar to what we had in the past but it is NOT to be called Ranger Cup because it is not.
They really GOOD news is as TBF State Federation you get access to them BOTH! You CANNOT claim them both for the same event but you have access to them both no one else gets this option. It is Ranger’s way of saying thank you federation anglers for your years of support.
So first up is the national RANGER CUP program here are the details of that new redesigned program and it applies Nationwide to everyone.
There is a new nationwide Ranger Cup program
Please read carefully as you all need to know this now. Highlights below
We will promote it of course but will handle none of the Ranger CUP program thereafter.
The way the program works now is that it is up to the angler to file for their rewards. The angler of course will want pictures or results etc. from us etc.

*IF the winner is NOT eligible for Ranger CUP under the above new Ranger cup requirements, we will back that up with $1,000 to the higher finishing Boater and $500 to the highest finishing Co-angler Ranger boat owners, any model, original owner or not. Who meets clothing and decal requirements, but THOSE bonuses will NOT be called Ranger cup …… Name of those back up bonus’s is Ranger/Federation bonus.
IS NOT to be called or confused with RANGER CUP THE BELOW Program IS NOT RANGER CUP
• To win these funds, they MUST be THE single registered owner of a Ranger boat, (there are no model year requirements for these funds) must fish from a Ranger boat in the event, must met the same clothing and decal requirements as Ranger Cup Program.
• TO claim the funds after each event YOU or your TD must send to this office. Name, address, contact info of the winner, and a picture of them from the event in Ranger Cup clothing you must verify that they fished form a ranger boat and own one. We will spot check registrations but the burden us on you to make sure.
TBF will pay these funds out directly to the verified winning angler which should speed the process up considerably.
