Sporty's 2004 Skyhawk Sweepstakes Winner Announced

sportys.jpgAccording to AOPA's ePilot Newsletter I did not win the 2004 Sporty's Skyhawk Sweepstakes. Sporty's gives each customer an entry in their yearly sweepstakes each time a purchase is made. I had purchase items from Sportys.com and from their store in Batavia, OH.

Lucky A.C. Douglass of Tallahassee, Florida won thanks to a purchase of Serengeti sunglasses. According to AOPA Mr. Douglass almost did not qualify to win the prize "The sweepstake rules stipulate that the winner of the 2004 Cessna Skyhawk (or a member of his or her immediate family) must be a pilot or student pilot on the day of the drawing. Within three hours, the retired IBM field manager had visited an aviation medical examiner, obtained a medical and student pilot certificate, and faxed proof of his new student pilot status to Sporty's."

But the good news is Sporty's will be giving away another plane in September as part of their 20th Anniversary Sweepstakes.

I think it's better to wait until September - what a great birthday gift that will make! 8)
