Havoc® Offers Chance for One Attendee to Cast for $100,000

COLUMBIA, S.C. (February 20, 2012) – Berkley Havoc will give one lucky fan attending the Bassmaster Classic in Shreveport, La., the chance to win $100,000 by simply casting into a target. During the final weigh-in on February 26, one individual in the CenturyLink Center® arena will be randomly drawn from the crowd and allowed to cast to a target on the arena floor.

“The Havoc Cast for Cash event has been a big hit of the Classic for some time now,” said Andrew Marks, Berkley Director of Marketing. “It is a fun opportunity for anyone to have a chance to claim a very large sum of money and the crowd simply loves it. Everyone at the final weigh in has an equal chance to “Cast for Cash” and hopefully someone will walk out of the arena $100,000 richer. Havoc is proud to give this opportunity to the Bassmaster Classic weigh in audience.”

The participant will be given his/her choice of an Abu Garcia Spincast, Spinning or Baitcast rod/reel combination spooled with Berkley Trilene fishing line. Renowned angler and television host Hank Parker will provide the individual with a one-on-one practice session to become better acquainted with the tackle for the best chance to win the $100,000 prize. The actual cast will be made during a break in the weigh in, in front of thousands of angling fans.
