As a special tribute to hardworking union members everywhere, the Versus Network will host an Escape to the Wild Labor Day marathon on Monday, September 3, 2007.
Escape to the Wild, a union-sponsored television program of the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (TRCP), surprises dedicated union members with all-expense-paid trips to world-class hunting and fishing destinations where the monsters roam, the fish are fierce and the birds fill the sky.
Tune in to Versus Network (formerly OLN) for seven hours, 8am-3pm (EST), and watch the excitement unfold as lucky winners travel to Africa’s exotic plains, the Great White North, the rugged Rocky Mountains, tropical ocean waters, the endless fields of the Great Plains and other incredible locations to fulfill their dreams.
“The whole experience was something I’d never get to do on my own…It was the ultimate adventure experience – Unbelievable,” said IAMAW member Scott Karelson after winning a trip to hunt Caribou in Quebec in season one. “I will always remember this and am truly thankful I had the opportunity to participate.”
As each surprise unfolds, you’ll get a glimpse into the lives of each winner, like Rocky Raimondi, a fire fighter who lost union brothers and friends in the 9/11 attack, Todd Heustis, a sheet metal worker who hunts on the same land his great-grandfather homesteaded in the early 1920s, and John Demers, an electrical lineman who got his first hunting experience as a kid through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
Between the episodes, you’ll discover some of the amazing destinations winners are headed to in season two of Escape to the Wild, beginning in January 2008.
