April 3, 2013

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. (April 3, 2013) — Mike Skender with Gurnee Park District in Gurnee, Ill., has been selected as the first of four grand-prize winners in the yearlong “Watch and Win” giveaway from Turface Athletics™.

The “Watch and Win” giveaway from Turface Athletics offers sports field managers, coaches and field volunteers a chance to win big simply by watching one of the many educational videos at Turface.com. The giveaway is free to enter and three more winners in addition to Skender will be selected over the course of 2013 — one for each remaining quarter. Each winner will receive two tons of Turface® product and $250 to purchase field maintenance supplies.

“For the last 50 years, Turface Athletics has added value to the game by educating coaches, field managers and volunteers at every level so they can improve upon their craft,” said Jeff Langner, brand manager at Turface Athletics. “We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate our 50th anniversary than by giving back to our customers while helping them learn something along the way.”

The “Watch and Win” giveaway draws from the newly-expanded video library at Turface.com. The library is a free resource tailored to help educate sports field managers at any level of play on the latest maintenance and renovation techniques for ball fields and sports turf.

To enter the giveaway, participants can visit www.turface.com/50years/watch-and-win and watch the educational video displayed. They will receive a promotional code at the end of the video that allows the viewer to complete an entry form. A new video will be featured each quarter — giving viewers four chances to win big.

“The relationship between Turface Athletics and its customers has always been about teamwork. Giving away Turface product and funds for field maintenance is just one more ‘thank you’ to those closest to the game,” Langner said.
