Contest Ended – Winner Announced!
2015 went out with a bang and so did our Holiday Giveaway! We received thousands of entries from all over – thanks to everyone that entered and… better luck next time. 🙂
Drumroll… for the Holiday Giveaway Winner:
It turns out all of the luck went to Vincent Beaucage and I believe congratulations are in order! Vincent was busy sharing his Lucky Link up to the 11th hour (so to speak) which resulted in 20 extra entries.
Luck was definitely on his side though; 20 is a good number but the honourable mentions for this contest go out to Josh Oggy and Rob from True North Angler. Both of these guys got in early and were active the whole way through resulting in 64 entries for Josh (except he never did confirm his email upon entering, tsk tsk! – – we kid, there's a chance the confirmation email found its way to his junk folder) and Rob who ended up with 57 entries. About 70% of you were content with your 1 entry.
Enough with the numbers! At the end of the day, it's a random draw and as exemplified this time, the largest number doesn't guarantee a win.
As a recap, here is what Vincent won:
- Gerber Bear Grylls Survivor Kit
- Westin Mike the Pike Lure (Chopper Pike, 28cm)
- Westin JÄTTE 17cm Floating Hard Lure
- XTOOLS Floating Pliers – Bullnose 9” (ICAST new product showcase winner)

How to win next time.
While we don't have another contest planned just yet, when we do, the best way to find out about it is through our newsletter. As you saw, getting in early can make a difference and the newsletter is where stuff like this (and Westin stock updates 🙂 ) go out first.
So if you haven't already, consider signing up for our newsletter. We send emails pretty infrequently (only if there's something interesting to say) because we hate being inundated too. Do yourself a favour and sign up today.
