March Classic February early bird draw

GUELPH, ON (February 15, 2012) – Grain Farmers of Ontario has decided to run a second early bird draw for those who pre-register for the March Classic in the month of February.

The January early bird draw created a lot of buzz around the countryside and a winner was drawn from all who had pre-registered by January 31st. Because of the interest in the prize – a bottle of Collingwood whisky, made from Ontario corn – a second draw will be held for everyone who registers for the March Classic between February 1st and February 29th.

“We encourage pre-registration this year to ensure everyone has a seat,” says Erin Fletcher, Manager of Public Affairs. “The exhibit hall has grown by one third and pre-registration numbers are already higher than previous years. We anticipate record attendance for the 2012 conference.”

Registration is available online at www.gfo.ca/MarchClassic.
