W.S Laurie's Ultimate Fishing Pack Winner


The live draw for the WS Laurie Ultimate Fishing Pack Giveaway was held on Saturday the 26th February 2011. The promotion was centred around a drawn prize of $12,000 of fishing tackle and ran over 4 months from the 1st of November 2010 to 28th February 2011.  Each purchase of $50 or more during the period of the competition at W S Laurie’s Beaumont street store was eligible for one entry in the draw, but to claim the prize you had to be there for the live draw.  Mark and Trish Thodey from Bradley smokers treated the 250 or more who attended the event to some tasty morsels smoked in the several Bradley smokers they provided for the afternoon and the reports were that the food was sensational! The Manukau Sports Fishing Club were also in attendance with a barbeque.

The winner of the $12,000 of fishing tackle was Grant Sewell and the draw had a really interesting twist.  Managing Director of WS Laurie’s, Jon Terrell randomly selected  a child from the crowd and asked him to draw a name out of the bin with the thousands of entry cards. And the card he pulled out of the bin was ..........his Dads!

Given the huge response to the promotion , WS Laurie are looking to run the competition again for the 2011-2012 season, however according to Jon Terrell, “It will be bigger and better for sure”
