Earlier this fall we thought it would be fun to celebrate the launch of Westin's Danny the Duck lure with a giveaway.
We thought it would be more fun to give Danny the Duck to not just one, but FIVE of you. It seems you thought that was fun too!
Then, we thought it would be the most fun to let all five of you Danny the Duck winners choose which colour you wanted!
If you recall the contest entry form, we were showing the three colours we knew we could get our hands on: Brown Duckling, Mandarin Duck and Firetiger.
An un-official, non-statistically significant Facebook poll showed that the majority of you like the looks of the Brown Duckling the best.
But now we have a little wrench to throw in the mix. While the contest was going on, we were working behind the scenes to secure some of the “Yellow Duckling” colour. Yes, the one that looks like a rubber ducky; also the one that Westin was showing off the most early on and using a good chunk of the time during their testing.
Here's a bit of trivia for you: originally this colour was slated to be called “Realistic Yellow”.
So in the end, our winners got to choose from all four colours, provided they were willing to wait a bit longer for the Yellow Duckling option to arrive.
Well arrive it has!
Tardy, we are.
You might have noticed that the contest ended a little while back. So why are we just now getting to the announcement?
Aside from Westin's supply shortages that prompted us to extend the giveaway (and let more of you enter), there was another delay.
As it turns out, one of the winners didn't bother getting back to us when we reached out to congratulate him and ask for a shipping address. We wanted to give the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he was on holidays or away for work. So we waited, and waited. Finally, we sent one last reminder and waited some more. Nothing. So we picked another name. New winner #5 replied same-day! 🙂
