NWT to Offer T-H Marine ATLAS Awards Contingency at 2015 Events

Program includes cash bonuses for using many popular T-H Marine products

MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. (March 26, 2015) – The Cabela’s National Walleye Tour (NWT) will offer even more ways to win in 2015 thanks to T-H Marine’s popular Atlas Awards program. The NWT sponsor and leading manufacturer of boat parts and marine accessories will offer bonuses for using select T-H Marine products at all 2015 NWT events.

For a minimal membership fee, anglers can register for the program directly with T-H Marine and be eligible for cash bonuses as the winner or high-finisher at NWT events and other tournaments across the country.

“We’re fortunate to have the support of sponsors like T-H Marine and their Atlas Awards program is a great example why,” said NWT Tournament Director Anthony Wright. “The added contingency is a huge opportunity for NWT anglers. We’re excited to offer the program.”

The Atlas Awards program includes eight qualifying products and multiple ways to win. For any Atlas Awards member that wins an NWT event, the T-H Marine qualifying products and associated cash bonuses are:

* HOTFOOT – $50
* LOC-R-BAR – $50
* SHOCK LOCK – $50

To be eligible for the Grand Slam Bonus the winning angler must have all eight products installed. However, if the winner of the event is not an Atlas Awards member, the highest-finishing member within the top-10 will be awarded a $100 cash prize if they own the Atlas Hydraulic Jack Plate. More details are available at www.thmarine.com or by calling 256-772-0164.

The National Walleye Tour will begin the 2015 season on May 7 at Lake City, Minnesota, and will include a total of three qualifying events, plus a year-end championship. Official registration for all events is already underway, both online and by phone. The NWT website offers numerous details on the circuit, including official rules, tournament structure, payout and incentives.

All 2015 NWT events feature 100% payback. A fully rigged Ranger Boat, plus cash, is guaranteed for first place at each event – a minimum total value of $61,000. Multiple contingency programs are available for even higher payout. Anglers that fish all three regular-season events, in addition to the top points leaders, will qualify for the three-day, entry-fee championship.

The Cabela’s National Walleye Tour also includes unmatched television and media coverage, allowing a national audience to watch the action unfold from each event throughout the season. Airing on multiple networks, the NWT will be seen on the Pursuit Channel, NBC Sports Network and Fox Sports Net North.
