Minneapolis, Minn. (Aug 15, 2012) - North Dakota is one of the key spots in the country for economic vibrancy. One easy way to measure? Interest in buying boats. The Ranger Boats-Evinrude TESTRIDE™ program is coming to Devils Lake to highlight the new 175T (T for tiller), the newest model launched in 2012 that many are excited to experience. Folks can enjoy a free ride with a professional angler this Saturday, August 18th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Spirit Lake Casino's Marina. Ranger-Evinrude dealer, Blake's Marine is co-sponsor. Potential customers have a chance to see for themselves all the benefits of several various models of Evinrude-powered Ranger Boats.
"Everyone's buzzing about this 175T and we're excited we can showcase it on the water at Devils Lake," shared George Liddle, Ranger Boats rep and host of TESTRIDE. A variety of models from the Fisherman series, Angler series, Z-series and Reatas will also be available with various outboards from Evinrude. "TESTRIDE gives us a platform for our multi-species big water boats as well as the bass boats from Ranger.
"This is a great program with huge incentives tied to it," shared dealer Rick Blake. "There's a package worth $1500 if a TESTRIDE participant purchases a Ranger-Evinrude boat in the near future, so anyone on the fence should come take a ride for that benefit alone. And for those still shopping, there are free t-shirts and Rapala lures for the first 50 riders." Blake's Marine is also a Stratos dealer and incentive packages are available on Stratos-Evinrude as well.
Electronics from Humminbird and Minn Kota trolling motors as well as Talon shallow-anchoring systems, Dobyns rods and Rapala lures round out the product demonstrations. Attendees will receive special discounts from TESTRIDE's online partner for guide-recommended outdoor gear-KrugerFarms.com.
"We enjoy showcasing our engines to boating and fishing consumers," shared Krista Heidgerken of Evinrude Outboards. "Customers can experience the power of an E-TEC and learn about reliability and superior design from the pro anglers that depend on them. In many cases that wins them over."
"We're committed to consistently delivering the ultimate ownership experience," added Bart Schad, Ranger Vice President of Marketing. "These events help us show the real differences that make up so much of our legendary ride, handling and fishability features."
