The GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK'S Sporting Goods not only raises the game of the world’s best anglers, but it often brings out the best in the fishing industry and its faithful fans in a unified celebration of the sport. And a recently announced cooperative effort between Carhartt, B.A.S.S. and the South Carolina B.A.S.S. Nation epitomizes that spirit.
During the three-day 2018 GEICO Bassmaster Classic Outdoor Expo presented by DICK'S Sporting Goods inside the Greenville Convention Center on March 16-18, hard working folks from the Carhartt manufacturing plant in Kentucky will be in the Carhartt exhibit booth sewing the iconic B.A.S.S. logo on Carhartt’s famous “A18” acrylic watch cap.
Fans who choose to donate $5 to the South Carolina B.A.S.S. Nation Conservation fund at the Carhartt booth will receive one of the limited edition hats ideally suited for cool weather work or fishing. All funds collected from this conservation minded project at the Classic will then be donated to the South Carolina B.A.S.S. Nation to buy gloves, boots, tools and trash bags for high school anglers and other volunteers who will be cleaning up trash from 11 South Carolina fisheries.
“We have around 500 youth and high school members in the South Carolina B.A.S.S. Nation, and 11 bodies of water in need of shoreline and boat ramp cleanup. We plan to involve all of our youth in this win-win project, and the funds collected at the Carhartt booth by supportive fans will aid greatly in our efforts,” says Randy Mosley, president of the South Carolina B.A.S.S. Nation.
If you’re attending the 2018 Bassmaster Classic, be sure to stop by the Carhartt booth, located next to the Skeeter Boats booth, for a chance to show your love of bass fishing and cleaner waterways by supporting this simple $5 initiative that will lead to 11 much cleaner South Carolina fisheries, and to you with a really cool limited edition Carhartt cap.
