B.C. man wins Ford truck in “My Favourite Coach” contest
Abbotsford, British Columbia – Shane Anderson of Abbotsford, British Columbia has won a 2006 Ford F-150 pickup in the “My Favourite Coach” contest, presented by CBC and the Ford Motor Company of Canada Ltd. In addition to the Ford SuperCrew Lariat Wayne Gretzy Limited Edition truck, Anderson will be part of a “Behind the Scenes Experience” with Hockey Night in Canada.
Contestants had to write a short essay about their favourite coach, on or off the ice. Over 2,800 essays were submitted, and all were read by a panel of five judges, including on-air personalities from Hockey Night in Canada. Anderson said that he entered because he is a huge hockey fan, and because he needed a new vehicle to replace an aging car.
Ford produced 999 Wayne Gretzky Limited Edition trucks, each individually numbered and with unique badging.
