FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Atlanta, Georgia, July 31, 2023 - FishTips, the pioneering online marketplace for fishing expertise, announced a new initiative today aimed at supporting fishing tournament directors in upholding the integrity of their competitions. In an effort to support fair play and maintain the highest standards within the tournament community, FishTips is extending an offer to assist any tournament director in verifying whether or not their competitors have utilized the online marketplace within their specified information exclusion period.

Fishing tournaments have long been a cherished tradition among anglers. These events celebrate our passion for the sport and foster the highest levels of competition and excitement. However, ensuring a level playing field for all participants can be challenging, especially when competition rules mandate information restrictions. FishTips aims to do their part by bridging this gap with an online platform that facilitates the exchange of fishing expertise in a transparent and accountable manner.

"We understand the fundamental importance of fair competition in fishing tournaments, and we are committed to promoting integrity within the sport. Our online platform requires that all participants use their real identity. This enhances trust between marketplace participants and also makes it quite simple for us to track and verify any interactions," said Calvin Lott, Co-Founder and CEO of FishTips. “We can share our time-stamped purchase data with tournament directors upon request to help them uphold their exclusion period rules and regulations.”

FishTips is committed to empowering tournament directors to identify participants who may have bought fishing expertise and information via the marketplace on a specific body of water, during a specific time period prior to or during a tournament to gain an unfair competitive advantage. By partnering with FishTips, tournament directors can enhance their ability to enforce fair play regulations while still respecting the privacy of their competitors.

"We recognize that not all tournament trails have information restrictions. When they do, tournament directors can face serious challenges in detecting the prohibited sharing of information. We are committed to empowering directors with the necessary tools to ensure that their competitors do not use our platform in a manner that would breach the rules and regulations they use to govern their tournaments," added Calvin Lott.

FishTips welcomes any fishing tournament director to collaborate with the company to preserve fairness and integrity within their events. By working together, we can uphold the spirit of the competition and preserve the unparalleled excitement that fishing tournaments have to offer.
