    I came home yesterday after a day where everything that can happen did happen to find a box on my garage step. I haven't ordered anything for a few weeks, so I wasn't sure. When I looked at it closer, it was from Echo. Inside was a letter saying I won a prize from them for submitting an entry at EXPO. Upon opening the box, I was pleased to find a Yard Guard kit, insecticide, extra oil, and an Echo 201 handheld blower to accompany everything in the box. It was nice to find it there after having a crappy day yesterday. Anyone else win anything this year at EXPO?:usflag:

    Thanks Rod. I always seem to come home with something, lol..In 2003 it was a Kichler nighttime demo bag, valued at $ 850.00, in 2004 it was a Shindaiwa T 2500 trimmer from the football toss outside at Shin's booth, and last year it was a box of stuff from Gravely /Ariens , and this year the blower and access. from Echo.In 2003 and 2004, I won the stuff there and brought it home. The last two years now, it has shown up a month or two after the show, but I'll take it. Now the wife has a small blower to keep leaves out of her flower beds:laugh:

    If I could only have similar luck with winning the Powerball,LOL..It was nice to win the blower, but I just bought the wife a Stihl BG 65 last week. If only this would have came sooner, lol. Seriously Geoff, she enjoys working in the yard, and she even likes to mow the lawn at our house. I have great luck when it comes to finding good deals and such, but I don't think I'll ever cash in the "big one".:laugh:

    I hear ya but IMHO I'd rather string the luck out in smaller packages and keep it coming all the time rather than looking for that "mouse in the coke bottle" payoff LOL! My wife enjoys mowing the lawn as well and does a pretty dang good job.... she leaves the trimming for me :cry: go figure.
