Bassmaster Tournament Trail Has a New Partner: Its Official Sanitizer Product

Jun 09, 2020

As the Bassmaster Tournament Trail prepares to resume events this week, Blackbird Products Group, known for its popular Mammoth Coolers, is partnering with B.A.S.S. to help ensure fans, anglers and staff stay safe and healthy. Mammoth has signed on to make their new U.S.A.-made sanitizers the “Official Sanitizer Product of Bassmaster.”

“B.A.S.S. is committed to making our events both fun and safe for everyone involved,” said Bruce Akin, B.A.S.S. CEO. “We are so proud to have Mammoth join us to offer hand sanitizing stations at events as well as all-natural sanitizing products for anglers and staff beginning with our Bassmaster Elite event at Lake Eufaula.”

Introduced in April, Mammoth Hand Sanitizer is made in the United States with USDA Certified Organic ingredients. Formulated to meet international standards for alcohol-based hand sanitizer use in medical settings, Mammoth Hand Sanitizer is proven to kill 99.9% of germs without the harmful ingredients found in many other sanitizers. 

“The Mammoth family takes great pride and satisfaction in having the opportunity to work with such a strong and conservation-driven organization as B.A.S.S.,” said Mike Hannigan, CEO of parent company Blackbird Products Group, LLC. “Mammoth looks forward to assisting B.A.S.S. in ensuring safe and enjoyable events for anglers, spectators and staff.”

In rescheduling the remainder of the 2020 season, B.A.S.S. emphasized that it will heed each state’s mandates on crowd sizes and public spaces as well as monitor federal guidelines to ensure both competition and fan activities can resume safely.

According to Bob George, Director of Sales and Marketing for Mammoth, “With our current sponsorship of veteran Elite Series angler Bill Lowen, we felt this was a natural extension and a great opportunity to introduce our sanitizer product and assist B.A.S.S. in locking down their needs for a U.S.A.-made product that has been challenging to find in the current retail environment.”
