This year, Bridgeland hosted a “Win-a-Bin” promotion in which customers who purchased Dow AgroScience product until October 31 were automatically entered to win a Grain Max 5000. The winner, Rick Slater, was invited to the Grande Prairie Farm & Ranch Supply store for a “business meeting” at 10 a.m. on Monday, November 28. His wife Debbie was in on the surprise, along with Derrick Mizera, General Manager; Charlene Hannotte, Customer Account Manager; Nico Van Der Giessen, UFA Delegate, Grande Prairie East; and Clarey Fentie, Petroleum Agent.
When Rick arrived, he was shocked to hear from Derrick that they were “pulling his leg” and that he was not in fact there for a meeting but was the winner of a brand new grain bin. They took him out the front door, where his bin was waiting with his name on it and wrapped in a bright red bow.
“Rick is a great customer of ours,” said Derrick Mizera, General Manager of Bridgeland. “I can’t imagine a more perfect fit, since this bin should come in handy for his Nexera canola.”
Congratulations to Rick and Debbie!
