| June 17, 2013

Beatrice, Neb. – After receiving more than 8,000 entries from folks drawn to the prospect of winning a  fishing trip with a two-time Bassmaster Classic champion, a zero-turn riding mower or a new kayak, Exmark has announced the winners of its third-annual Mow & Go with Hank Parker Sweepstakes.

The Grand Prize winner – Robert Stevens of Humble, Texas – will fish with Hank Parker, a Bassmaster Classic champion in 1979 and 1989. Their fishing trip will take place in mid-June, on Kentucky’s Barkley Lakes.

Parker said Stevens’ once-in-a-lifetime fishing experience will be documented by Parker’s film crew as part of a 2014 episode of Hank Parker’s Outdoor Magazine television show, which airs on NBC Sports Network and Pursuit Channel.

“I’m looking forward to having a lot of fun with Mr. Stevens in Kentucky, and to sharing our experience with America.
I’d also like to offer my congratulations to each of the winners as well as thanks to our other great sponsors.”

The first prize winner – Lorrie Poteet of Laramie, Wyo. – is taking home a new Exmark Pioneer S-Series zero-turn riding mower. The model includes a 60-inch Exmark UltraCut Series 4 cutting deck and a heavy-duty Kohler twin-cylinder engine.

The second prize winner – Jen Horner of Marietta, Georgia – receives a Hobie Mirage i12s kayak.

“On behalf of everyone here at Exmark, I’d like to congratulate all three winners in the 2013 Exmark Mow & Go with Hank Parker Sweepstakes,” said Exmark’s Daryn Walters. “In addition, we’d also like to thank Hank Parker and the fine folks at Hobie for making this a sweepstakes worth entering.

Here at Exmark, we know a lot of people who become landscape professionals in large part due to their love of the outdoors and of working in it. That’s why we know our brands make such a great team. Thanks again to everyone who participated.”
