Solar Bat “Bat Bucks” Contingency

Mar 23, 2017
All USA BASSIN Tournaments are sanctioned under the Solar Bat “Bat Bucks” Contingency.

It pays to wear Solar Bat sunglasses if you are fishing USA BASSIN.

“Solar Bat designed the Bat Bucks tournament contingency for the grassroots fisherman. The contingency is not fish species specific and an eligible tournament is simply a tournament that has a website posting entry fees and tourney results,” says Solar Bat’s Gary Nesty, O.D. “Fishermen can win more money with Solar Bat sunglasses.”

Here’s how it works:

  1. PURCHASE AND REGISTER YOUR Solar Bat Sunglasses:
    1. Fisherman must have purchased a pair of Logo or Signature Series Solar Bat® sunglasses and registered with Solar Bat.  Purchase and registration makes the fisherman eligible for BAT BUCKS for two calendar years.  Date of purchase must be prior to submission for the BAT BUCKS. Go to downloading the form, then mailing along with a registration fee of $5.50 to Solar Bat®.  Registration fee includes two Solar Bat BAT BUCKS decals.
  2. Sanctioned Tournaments
    1. Fish any USA BASSIN Tournament
    2. Fisherman must weigh at least one fish to be eligible.
    1. Two ways to win:
      1. Win a USA BASSIN tournament.
      2. Finish second place out of the money in a USA BASSIN Tournament
  4. What you can win!!
    1. If both team members eligible, 100% of the entry fee and 100% of the gift certificate will be awarded.  If only one team member is eligible 50% of the entry fee plus 50% of the gift certificate will be awarded.
    2. On “Black Friday” in November of 2017 the name of everyone who registered for BAT BUCKS will be placed in a drawing along with all Solar Bat® email subscribers.  The lucky winner will receive one free Solar Bat® sunglass of their choice each year for the next three years.  The winner will be announced via an email blast.
