5,000 lucky anglers have a chance to win a truck

13 January 2014

ST. JOHN VALLEY - Folks should check their mail this weekend for a chance to be the winner of a brand new Chevy Silverado LT Crew Cab from Valley Motors in Fort Kent.  In support of the Long Lake Ice Fishing Derby, Maine's Largest Cash Prize Derby, Valley Motors purchased the list of everyone who obtained a fishing license last year in Aroostook County.  The dealership entered the names into a random drawing and 5,000 names will be part of the promotion.


"One of those 5,000 will be holding the winning flyer which are all individually numbered," said Paul Bernier, chairman of the Long Lake Derby, which is now in it's ninth year of operation.  We strongly are encouraging anyone who receives a flyer to hold on to it and bring it to Valley Motors in Fort Kent during the weekend of our Derby (January 25-26). Bernier adds, and bring your fishing gear and take a chance at one of our cash prizes in the derby." 

In addition to the details about the promotion, the flyer will contain a registration form that interested participants can use to register to be part of the derby along with chances to win the Ultimate Ice Fishing Package with materials and items valued at over $3,000. 

Derby organizers have been busy since last fall planning and organizing for the Derby which raises funds for the Edgar J. Paradis Cancer Fund, administered by Northern Maine Medical Center.
