Using the catch phrase "Win A Trip To Rocky Point", the contest will run in September and October, 2009.
Mark and Barb, of Rocky Point Boat Charters, were emailed by the radio station last spring and asked if they could coordinate a weekend water sport package to be used as a prize for a contest on 98 KUPD and sponsored by Corona Beer and AM/PM Markets in Arizona. Since Rocky Point Boat Charters www.rockypointboattrips.com operates as a booking service and does not own the boats, Mark went to work getting prizes from their friends in exchange for a promotion of the business' involved and to promote Rocky Point in general.
After many months of negotiations and attending to details, the promotion is now a go and in the first week of September the on-air and retail promotions will be rolled out. Phoenix area AM/PM stores will be putting up special Corona Beer Displays with sweepstakes rules and the prize packages to be given away at that time.
Among the prizes Mark was able to put together are two seperate promo packages for 2 people each, and each package will include the following:
A suite for 2 nights at the Playa Inn Hotel
A charter for 2 passengers aboard CUATES a 30 foot cruiser with Captain Rick Hammer of Hammer Scuba and Fishing
Entry Scuba or First Time Dive Experience
This includes basic scuba instuction for 2 divers from Sun and Fun Dive and Activity Center by a certified dive instructor, all scuba gear needed for the dive, and a boat trip aboard "Sirena del Mar" to Bird Island where they will be led on a dive with their instuctor.
Sunset Cruise aboard the CARNAVAL Catamaran
They can also include dinner for 2 at Al Capones Pizza and Beer Co. and also at Sr. Amigos on the waterfront in Old Port.
