Pennsylvania FBC to Sponsor "Days of Summer Giveaway"

HARRISBURG, Pa.  – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has partnered with “The Rest of PA,” a consortia of local tourism entities and Bass Pro Shops in Harrisburg to sponsor a giveaway that includes a two-day getaway package and an Ascend 10T Sit-on-Top lime green fishing kayak.

The first prize in this giveaway is a choice of two remaining weekend get-away packages from the four regional locations sponsoring this prize: Columbia Montour Visitors Bureau, Endless Mountains Visitors Bureau, Susquehanna River Valley Visitors Bureau and Visit Potter-Tioga. The choices will be known after the winner of the “Spring into Fishing Getaway” selects one of the three remaining excursions.

The getaway package includes accommodations for up to four people including lodging, meals and exposure to local fishing.

The second-place prize is an Ascend 10T Sit-on-Top lime green fishing kayak donated by Bass Pro Shops. This sit-on-top model is ideal to target a variety of species on Commonwealth waters. 

The public can enter this giveaway by visiting www.GoneFishingPA.com from June 1 through August 20, or by entering in person at the following events at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa.:

  • Gander Outdoors 400 Weekend – July 27-29
  • ABC Supply 500 Weekend – Aug. 18-19

“This is an opportunity for us to partner with a host of diverse groups to promote fishing and boating opportunities to outdoor enthusiasts,” said PFBC Bureau of Outreach, Education and Marketing Director Steve Kralik. “We particularly want to thank the sponsors for donating the prizes. Two lucky individuals are going to win some really fun prizes that showcase some of the best entertainment the state has to offer.”

The winners will be notified after August 20. A date, time and location for the winner to pick up the kayak will be determined in the weeks after the winner is notified. No purchase is required and only one entry per qualifying adult will be accepted.
