Boat, Motor and Trailer Giveaway: Good News, Bad News

We’ve got some good news and some bad news. The Good News: We finally had our highly-anticipated Princecraft/Mercury boat/motor/trailer giveaway draw last Tuesday night! A record number of people watched the webcast as the random draw took place at approximately 7:06 PM EST. The winning ballot was drawn from Scarborough, Ontario.

The Bad News: The additional bonus prize of a Garmin Striker Ice Fishing Bundle, unfortunately, was not given away as the winner was not watching live and did not contact the Fish’n Canada Live studio during the event. But here’s the really bad news: The contest rules clearly state that the lucky ballot must be confirmed, and the winning contestant must verify their claim to the prize via e-mail or voicemail within 36 hours of the draw. After repeated attempts to contact the winner via e-mail, the winner has not responded or contacted the Fish’n Canada offices some five days after the fact. 

Therefore, we regretfully inform the winner that he has been disqualified, and we will be redrawing another ballot tomorrow evening at 6:pm.

  1. Oh My I was on the edge of my seat the last draw waiting to here my name. All those month of playing and entering. Hearing there is another draw is like OMG!!!!!!! I’ll be watching with my tackle box beside me and my best fishing buddy Brooklynn.

  2. Wondering why Larry put in entries and never followed thru after a chance to own a nice package. I will be watching again tomorrow night for chance #2. Best of luck to all once again.

    1. im starting to think it is all a scam because they said i won the garmin and had to contact and register to claim it. when you go to that site, you get millions of urls to sift thru . im 70 years old, i dont have time for that. I asked cant i just register by phone? No help. they then tell my go to a vpn and try that way. whats up whith that? i been online with them trying, they know i want to claim it, but they will probably say i did not respond to them

      1. Hi James,

        That link you received was part of a scam, and it did not come from us. Until today a spam account was operating on Facebook trying to trick users into providing credit card information. The only official way to be notified of winning a prize is via an official email address or telephone (which was recently introduced in the Garmin contest).
