David Cioppa’s name was randomly selected from over 218,000 entries for the grand prize in the highly popular “VanDam Your Boat” promotion sponsored by Humminbird®. As a result, the Hopkinton, Mass. resident received the very same Humminbird electronics that Kevin VanDam used to win his third straight BASS Angler of the Year title.
Cioppa can now “VanDam” his boat by rigging it with Humminbird’s 1197c SI Combo and 958c Combo fishfinders. He can share information between the two units by networking them together with the Humminbird InterLink™ accessory that was included as part of the grand prize.
Kevin VanDam is a member of the Humminbird pro staff and is a three-time Bassmaster Classic winner.
“Given Kevin’s great popularity, we knew having him associated with this promotion would make it highly successful,” Humminbird Senior Business Director Jeff Davison said. “The large number of entrants also demonstrates how popular Humminbird products and Side Imaging® technology have become with anglers.”
In addition to the Grand Prize, a Humminbird 798c SI Combo was awarded to a randomly selected entrant following each of the ten BASS Elite Series events. Entries were received from all 48 continental United States.
