This year’s 2014 “Brotherhood Outdoors Fan Photo Frenzy” contest really got fans involved in showing their support for USA’s Brotherhood Outdoors TV series and their outdoor heritage. For nine weeks, from October 3 to November 30, entries consistently came in from 20 states and Canada showing that Brotherhood Outdoors fans are all over North America.
To vie for a top-spot in the competition and the hope of winning one of three great prize packages, Brotherhood Outdoors fans were asked to register on the USA website and submit their best fan photos. Show us your spirit was the name of the game with images submitted for a staff vote at the USA’s national headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee, with fans submitting photo’s showing their love for the show on clothing, hunting gear and even baked goods!
Earning the First Place win with a photo taken of the 10 point buck he shot along side his union logo t-shirt and the Brotherhood Outdoors logo set atop the buck’s antlers, was Jacob Crismon, a member of Sheet Metal Workers Local 36 from Holts Summit, Missouri. His Grand Prize package, valued at roughly $180, included a USA logo Carhartt jacket, autographed USA logo hat, Sportsman Channel water bottle and Buck Knife 120 General and Brotherhood Outdoors poster and decals.
The 2nd prize win was Brad Richmond’s photo of himself representing both Brotherhood Outdoors and the USA while spending time in the great outdoors. Richmond, a member of Operating Engineers Local 150 from Rockton, Illinois, got hooked on Brotherhood Outdoors after his experience as a guest on the show – and now practices what he learned from the show with his new crossbow. His prize package, valued at roughly $60, included a USA logo Carhartt jacket, Sportsman Channel water bottle, Autographed USA logo hat and Brotherhood Outdoors poster and decals.
Taking home 3rd prize was Joe Short, a member of Sheet Metal Workers Local 19 from Manheim, Pennsylvania. Short’s picture of a successful duck hunt with his little brother who was home on leave from the military right before Short’s wedding displayed great enthusiasm for the outdoors and appreciation for brotherhood. His prize package, valued at roughly $30, included an autographed USA logo hat, Sportsman Channel water bottle, “Best of Brotherhood Outdoors” DVD and Brotherhood Outdoors poster and decals.
Thanks to all who participated with us in the “Brotherhood Outdoors Fan Photo Frenzy” contest and for helping us find out that all Brotherhood Outdoors fans have spirit and are the best when it comes to supporting their outdoor heritage.
