Bowater Toyota had a fantastic recent A&P Show a couple of weekends back. Not only did we win the best Large Trade Exhibit, but also the honour (and trophy) for Best Overall Exhibit.
It is always a really nice feeling to win something, so that is one of the reasons we decided to give away a whole lot of great prizes this year.
We put up a brand new iPad3, an Oakley Toyota 86 Hoodie and a pair of Oakley Toyota 86 sunglasses. All anyone had to do to enter was come along to our stand at the show. Easy as.
The winners came by this week to collect their prizes. Understandably they were chuffed to bits, especially luck iPad winner Chris Foster. Reasonably good prize for filling in his details and correctly answering that indeed the Toyota Hilux had been the Number 1 selling ute in New Zealand for 30 years.

Major prize winner Chris Foster couldn't wait to get into his iPad. In fact in the time between finding out he had won it, and co-ordinating 4 busy people to get together in the same place at the same time, he had already been out and purchased several enhancements, like a "bulletproof" cover that could apparently withstand, and protect, the iPad from a drop of 3 feet. Let's hope he never finds out whether this cover works or not!
Renee Carver was excited to win her hoodie, although as you can see, it was a shade on the large side. She turned up with her larger brother, who would have worn it well, and was eyeing it up. Renee may be in his good books for a while to come if she passed it onto him!
Mike Tunney, from Tasman Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (Tasman HVAC) will surely enjoy his new Oakley 86 Sunglasses. These are a great lenses, and will offer excellent eye protection from the elements and also the sun. They have a funky Toyota 86 inlay in them and are very cool. Fingers crossed they work with Mike's glasses, or someone on his Christmas list is in for a real treat!
