  • Collegiate Bass Championship
  1. The winner of a Tournament must have been properly registered with the Tournament, and be finally certified by the Tournament Director as the winner of the Tournament. All decisions of the Tournament Director regarding the Tournament winner will be final and binding in all respects regarding the Garmin Grand Giveaway.
  2. The boat from which the winner fished to win the Tournament must have one or more Garmin fixed mounted marine electronics installed in the boat. The winner must have fished from that boat for the entire Tournament. Garmin equipment mounted on other watercraft housed on the fishing boat does not qualify for the purposes of the Garmin Grand Giveaway.

Payment will be to the Tournament winner only. Garmin will send each such winner an IRS Form 1099-MISC in connection with such payment. All federal, state and/or local taxes, and the reporting consequences thereof, are the sole responsibility of such winner. If a Tournament winner fails to timely provide information required by Garmin, the winner may be disqualified from the Garmin Grand Giveaway, and no prize will be awarded. If it is determined that the winner of the Tournament did not fish from a boat equipped with mounted fixed Garmin marine electronics, no money will be awarded in connection with that Tournament. Unawarded amounts will not roll forward to future tournaments.
