GAC meets the winner of the Hardy Zenith prize draw!

Recently Glasgow Angling Centre hosted one of its mega popular Open Weekends, giving customers a chance to come and meet tons of fishing stars and sample a huge range of new tackle for the 2011 season. Hardy and Greys were offering customers a chance to enter into a free prize draw to win a Hardy Zenith rod worth up to £649 and over the weekend the uptake was superb with hundreds of people entering.

On Sunday the 6th of March Paul Devlin, owner of Glasgow Angling Centre, drew out the lucky winner’s name, which was a Mr Peter Edge from Troon, Ayrshire. Mr Edge chose the best selling 10’ #7 Zenith rod as his prize, and is pictured below receiving the rod from Paul and John Henderson from Hardy and Greys.

Mr Edge commented: “I normally come to the GAC Open Weekends to see what is new on the market and the Hardy Zenith Sintrix rod was definitely one of those products I was coming to see, I can’t thank Paul enough for pulling my name out the hat, it has saved me from having to buy one!”

John Henderson from Hardy and Greys added: “it was great to see a local angler win the prize; the uptake on the prize draw was great with record numbers through the door we had to print off extra entry forms as the interest just grew every day. The open weekend has always been an opportunity for customers to come and try before they buy and this year was no exception with Hardy SINTRIX rods, Greys XF2 ranges and other existing products all proving very popular”.

We do hope all you anglers out there will be coming to our next event in September, there will be representatives from all the major tackle companies covering Sea, Predator, Coarse and Game fishing plus loads of demo's and competitions so why not put the date in your diary now, Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th of September 2011.
