Yamaha Sponsors 2009 National Hunting & Fishing Day
Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A. continues its support of outdoor sports and conservation by sponsoring the 2009 National Hunting and Fishing (NHF) Day.
As part of the partnership, Yamaha has donated an all-new 2009 Grizzly 550 FI ATV with Electric Power Steering (EPS) that one lucky outdoorsman will win. The sweepstakes is being promoted at NHF Day events nationwide, and anyone can register online to win at www.yamahaoutdoors.com/nhfday from May 11 through the end of October.
“Our involvement with National Hunting and Fishing Day last year proved to be an excellent opportunity for Yamaha to promote and support one of its core values — outdoor conservation and ethical hunting and fishing,” says Steve Nessl, marketing manager for Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group. “Yamaha is more involved in the hunting and fishing communities than any other ATV manufacturer and we look forward to another great NHF Day celebration.”
Scheduled annually on the fourth Saturday of September, this year the celebration of hunting, fishing and conservation is set for September 26, 2009. NHF Day serves as the most effective grass roots effort ever taken to promote outdoor sports and conservation. Yamaha, through its relationships with organizations such as Ducks Unlimited, Safari Club International, Buckmasters, NWTF and NHF Day, among others, is a continued supporter of conservation efforts for outdoor recreational enthusiasts.
“We’re thrilled to have Yamaha on for another year of support,” says Denise Wagner of Wonders of Wildlife museum in Springfield, Mo. — the official home of National Hunting and Fishing Day. “The ATV giveaway was a huge hit amongst NHF Day participants and we look forward to another great turnout at all of our festivities nationwide.”
The sweepstakes is open to all hosts, volunteers and attendees of any of the hundreds of nationwide events celebrating NHF Day. The contest is also open to all outdoor recreational sports participants. One lucky entrant, 18 years-of-age or older, will win a 2009 Yamaha Grizzly 550 FI EPS. Approximate retail value is $8,099. No purchase necessary. The sweepstakes is underway and ends at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Oct. 31, 2009. The winner will be determined by random drawing.
