2020 WEEKEND GETAWAY
July 25, 2020

8:00a- 3:00p

MOVED DUE TO N.Y. TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS
TOURNAMENT ENTRY HERE

The original NY Weekend Getaway event was moved on 7-14-20 due to a New York travel restriction that required Ohio travelers to quarantine for 14 days upon their entering New York.

Due to timing of the NY advisory, all Better Half Tour Teams had to be in New York & quarantined 2 days prior to the New York announcement.

Um, good luck with that.

Moved to Tappan Lake, OH!

Better Half Tour Custom Printed Microfiber Performance Long Sleeve UPF-50 Fishing Shirts

Better Half Tour Fishing Shirts
Better Half Tour Fishing Shirts
ALL DATES will be ACTUAL EVENT DATES (including rescheduled tournaments)

Maria and I are wearing the ‘test run’ of these microfiber shirts – and I’ve got to say that they are pretty darn comfortable and the printing is fantastic.

Help us to spread the word about the Better Half Tour in 2020 and into the fishing future! You’ll be proud to wear them & THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

PLEASE NOTE: ALL DATES on shirts ordered will be the ACTUAL DATES that the tournaments are held on (includes rescheduled events).

  • Shirts are only $34.95 each – ANY SIZE!
  • ONLY FIVE BUCKS ($5) SHIPPING
  • Performance Microfiber Fabric
  • UPF-50 Sun Protection
  • Shirts are MEN’S sized – Please order accordingly
  • Dye-sublimation printing

What is DYE-SUBLIMATION? The cool thing about dye-sublimation is the fact that you cannot feel the image on the shirt as you will with traditional screen printing. During the transfer process, the image is actually gassed into the performance fabric on a near molecular level.

The images will not crack, curl, fade or peel, & will last the life of the shirt.

Order forms at tournament registration & RIGHT HERE – Order Yours Now!
