What’s this weird polka-dot B.A.S.S. shield? It’s a special QR code, created to make it easy for fans to follow B.A.S.S. on Facebook. Smartphone users with the Microsoft Tag reader app (http://gettag.mobi) can scan the shield and go directly to the B.A.S.S. Facebook page, www.facebook.com/bass.
Fans of B.A.S.S. on Facebook can catch all the highlights of the 2012 Bassmaster Classic, whether they’re keeping up with the Classic from home or on-site.
B.A.S.S. Facebook fans who are in Shreveport-Bossier City will have the chance to win special prizes, just by stopping by the B.A.S.S. booth at the Bassmaster Classic Outdoor Expo presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods. Prizes include Livewell passes, special seating credentials, and special Facebook-fan-exclusive bags bearing the B.A.S.S. Facebook QR code. Each evening, we’ll post a special code on Facebook. Fans simply retrieve the code from their newsfeed and present it at the B.A.S.S. booth to claim their prize. Prizes are limited to the first 100 fans at the booth each day.
Facebook fans watching at home can keep up with the coverage in their newsfeed, where B.A.S.S. will post updates from the launches, the water and the weigh-ins. Fans also get to interact with each other on the page, cheering on their favorite pro or offering their own predictions for what tactics will be winners. Plus, it's so easy to find out what's happening, right from your phone, desktop or laptop.
In addition, until Feb. 29, all B.A.S.S. Facebook fans have a chance to vote for their favorite bass fishing lake — entering them into a contest where the winner gets to travel to the best lake in America and go out with a fishing guide. Click here to enter.
