OGDEN, UT – GOODE Ski Technologies announced today that it will be supporting the 2009 O’Brien BIG DAWG Series, presented by Ski Nautique, with a ‘GOODE Bucks Prize Package Contingency Program’ for GOODE skiers.
GOODE will be awarding $2,000.00 worth of ‘GOODE Bucks’ for first place, $1,000.00 for second place and $500.00 for third place at the BIG DAWG finals, which will be held in West Palm Beach, FL, August 13-14, 2009. To qualify for this program, skiers need to compete in the BIG DAWG events with a GOODE ski, GOODE PowerShell boot system or a GOODE PowerVest system. ‘GOODE Bucks’ can be used to buy products from GOODE (goode.com), such as CARBON Fiber water skis, snow skis, ski poles and much more.
“We are happy to announce this program.”, said Dave Goode. “We have been working with Greg Davis for a way that we could be involved with the BIG DAWG Series this year. Greg suggested this type of format as a good option as he explained that it is done quite regularly in other sports, such as motorcylce racing. Eagle Sports has a similar program in place already for the 2009 BIG DAWG Series.”, Goode continues. “The level of competition in the BIG DAWG Series is really high and we want to reward the top skiers for all of their efforts with some “DAWG FOOD”. GOODE skiers have won 2 of the past 3 BIG DAWG championships and we are looking forward to paying out this year!”, Goode concludes.
The two BIG DAWG qualifying tournaments will take place in Louisiana on June 13-14 and in Michigan on July 11-12. Each qualifying event will pit 50 skiers in head-to-head competition, all vying for cash and other prizes exceeding $20,000.00 and a chance to advance to the finals. The finals will be held in conjunction with the prestigious 2009 GOODE Water Ski National Championships.
The ‘head-to-head’ finals will be webcast live under the lights from Okeeheelee Park allowing a large number of ski enthusiasts worldwide to view this unique event.
