It was another successful year and we thanks everyone who stopped by one of our events. The eventual winner was Ron Russell of Portage who chose the Fuel Tank and Fuel from Marquette Co-op. Darren Toews of Macgregor chose next and picked the 16 foot flat deck trailer from Hi-Tec Trailers. Sam Waldner of the Waldheim Colony won the Milwaukee Tool Kit from Western Bearing and Auto Parts,

Here is how the contest worked:


CFRY is ready to hit the road once again and we hope to see you on our Ag-citing April Tour. For the past decade, April has seen some pretty awesome giveaways from the Great Big Fuel Tank to a tank AND trailer. Last year, it was a fuel tank with fuel AND a flat deck trailer which Blye Sissons of Portage was happy to take home.

Who will win this year? Well it could be you. And you. And you! We've split the prize up and this April there will be three different grand prize winners this is what is up for grabs.

• Fuel Tank valued at $4,500, plus $1,000 in Farm Fuel from Marquette Co-op

• 16’ Flat Deck Trailer valued at $5,000 from Hi-Tec Industries

• Milwaukee Tool Kit valued at $500 from Western Bearing & Auto Parts

Tank and Trailer 2017

Things will be very similar to year past. Visit us when we are live on location between 10am and 2pm at our partner locations. This is the only time you can enter. At each stop, you will have a chance at instant prizes plus you can enter your name. After each stop, 5 names will be drawn from the entries at that location only. Those five will go into the grand prize draw which will be made live on the air in the 8am hour on May 1st. At this point, one name will be drawn from the five from each location. That name will go into the reverse draw where we will finally find our three winners! So enter at as many stops as you can for the best opportunity to win.

We'll be pulling the tank and trailer to each stop with a gorgeous Pepperdust Chevy Hi Country with a 6.2l engine from your Chevy and GMC store...Craig Dunn Motor City. Stop by to get a close up look of this brand new truck and of course the tank and trailer.
