One of the cool events Ive been doing the last couple of years is the Bass Pro Shops University. They bring in associates from all the BPS stores (and now this year Cabelas stores) to learn about products so they can help customers make better decisions on purchases. This year we taught them about the great new Motorguide trolling motor the Xi3. Good people, good fun, great motor! #MercuryProTeam
