Participants can win a guided Alaskan fishing trip with Trev Gowdy of Outdoor Channel’s “Monster Fish.”

| March 14, 2011

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Visit your Toro dealer today for a chance to win an Alaskan fishing excursion guided by Trev Gowdy, host of Outdoor Channel’s “Monster Fish” program.

As part of Toro’s “Go With The Pro” Sweepstakes, one winner will be awarded an all-expense-paid fishing trip to Soldotna, Alaska from July 27 – Aug. 1. The winner will be chosen in mid-June and receive a six-day, five-night fishing trip to the Kenai Peninsula, including airfare, meals, guide service, boat rental, equipment, bait, hotel stay and other transportation in Alaska. Accommodations will be at the AAA-rated Kenai River Raven Lodge, where guests can fish for sockeye “red” salmon and rainbow trout from the dock.

“These are the best fishing dates of the entire summer season,” says Gowdy. “I’ve lined up the best guides, lodge, and personnel for an awesome, unforgettable trip.”

The Alaskan excursion will be the first of two trips awarded during the 2011 sweepstakes, which is being promoted through Toro’s U.S. network of dealers and on Outdoor Channel. Toro is an official sponsor of Outdoor Channel’s “Monster Fish” program hosted by Gowdy – “America's Sportsman” and son of sportscaster Curt Gowdy – plus international angler Dennis Braid. Monster Fish features a high-definition, half-hour trek around the globe in search of the biggest and baddest aquatic creatures on the planet. It airs Friday nights at 10:30 p.m. EST and Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. EST.

In addition to this fishing trip giveaway, watch for Toro’s sweepstakes announcement of a fall hunting excursion later this year. Along with the two trips, runner-up prizes in the Go With The Pro Sweepstakes will include Toro products like a residential zero-turn mower, walk power mower or Ultra Blower Vac.

Sweepstakes entry forms with a unique code required for online entry are only available from your local Toro dealer. Entries for the fishing excursion will be accepted online through June 15. To find your nearest dealer and view the complete sweepstakes rules, visit www.toro.com/dealer. No purchase is necessary to enter. A purchase will not increase your chances of winning the sweepstakes, which is open to all legal residents in the United States, ages 18 or older as of 1/1/11.
