Santa Rosa, CA (April 16, 2018) – BUFF® recently demonstrated a genuine commitment to encouraging young bass anglers by confirming its continued support of the Association of Collegiate Anglers T®ournament Series. The governing body for college fishing, the ACA is sanctioned by The Bass Federation, Inc. (TBF), a grassroots organization dedicated to youth, conservation and fishing.
For the ACA’s BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship BUFF® has offered a 50% discount to all 2018 participating anglers this season and a custom BUFF® UV Multifunctional Headwear for all who qualify for and attend the Championship held on Pickwick Lake (May 21-25). Central to this relationship is the message of sun protection and the long-term health benefit of using BUFF® products while on the water.
To help communicate the importance of diligent sun protection, BUFF® leverages the notoriety of Bassmaster Elite Series pro Ott Defoe. Hailing from Knoxville, Tenn., the recently-announced site of the 2019 Bassmaster Classic, Defoe is a firm believer in guarding against harmful solar exposure.
The 4-time Bassmaster winner traces his career path back to personal interaction with professional bass fishermen. Continuing this tradition of encouragement by supporting BUFF®’s ACA involvement, he said, is an honor and a responsibility.
“When I was young, we went to the Bassmaster Classic nine years in a row and talking to the anglers was what I liked most about those events,” Defoe said. “Spending time with them, getting autographs; you got to see that they’re real people too who got to do what they love. That was definitely a driving factor for me becoming a professional angler.
Kevin Walker, Marketing Manager of Buff, Inc. offers this insight: “This is our third year of supporting the ACA and we believe, as a company and as individuals, that nurturing the next generation of outdoors enthusiasts stands as one our most meaningful priorities. Our partnership with Ott Defoe provides a credible connection to the bass fishing world that helps us to accomplish this objective.”
