Toro Kicks Off Sweepstakes

Toro Kicks Off Sweepstakes

Consumers should visit their Toro dealer for a chance to win the trip of a lifetime: an Alaskan fishing excursion guided by Trev Gowdy, host of Outdoor Channel’s popular Monster Fish program.

As part of Toro’s Go With The Pro Sweepstakes, one lucky winner will be awarded an all-expense-paid fishing trip to Soldotna, Alaska from July 27 to Aug. 1, 2011. The winner will be chosen in mid-June and receive a six-day, five-night fishing trip to the Kenai Peninsula, including airfare, meals, guide service, boat rental, equipment, bait, hotel stay and other transportation in Alaska. Accommodations will be at the AAA-rated Kenai River Raven Lodge, where guests can fish for sockeye “red” salmon and rainbow trout from the dock.

“These are the best fishing dates of the entire summer season,” explains Gowdy. “I’ve lined up the best guides, lodge, and personnel for an awesome, unforgettable trip.”

The Alaskan excursion will be the first of two trips awarded during the 2011 sweepstakes, which is being promoted through Toro’s U.S. network of dealers and on Outdoor Channel, America’s leader in outdoor TV. Toro is an official sponsor of Outdoor Channel’s Monster Fish program hosted by Gowdy – “America's Sportsman” and son of legendary sportscaster Curt Gowdy – plus famed international angler Dennis Braid. Monster Fish features a high-definition, half-hour trek around the globe in search of the biggest and baddest aquatic creatures on the planet! It airs Friday nights at 10:30 p.m. Eastern time and Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time.

In addition to this fishing trip giveaway, watch for Toro’s sweepstakes announcement of a fall hunting excursion later this year. Along with the two trips, runner-up prizes in the Go With The Pro Sweepstakes will include great Toro products like a residential zero-turn mower, walk power mower, or Ultra Blower Vac.

Sweepstakes entry forms with a unique code required for online entry are only available from local Toro dealers, offering the selection you need backed by the service you deserve. Entries for the fishing excursion will be accepted online through June 15, 2011. To find your nearest dealer and view the complete sweepstakes rules, visit No purchase is necessary to enter. A purchase will not increase your chances of winning the sweepstakes, which is open to all legal residents in the United States, ages 18 or older as of 1/1/11.
