Bird’s Eye View is the Grand Prize

James Collington is North Peace Savings and Credit Union’s contest winner for a plane ride with a performer at the Fort St. John Airshow

 

Fort St. John, July 23 – James Collington is the big winner with the North Peace Savings and Credit Union’s recent contest. James’ grand prize was a plane ride with a performer from the Fort St. John International Airshow on Friday, July 26,2013. In addition to the plane ride, he will receive two free general admission tickets for the Sunday show as well as access to the North Peace Savings VIP BBQ event Sunday too.

 

Going paperless had never had such a great reward! As a sponsor of the Fort St. John International Airshow, North Peace Savings received the opportunity to send one of its members up for a ride with an event performer in a plane. North Peace Savings had created the “Win the Ride of a Lifetime” contest for clients to go paperless, stimulating its ongoing e-statement initiative. “The opportunity for the ‘Win a Ride of a Lifetime’ contest,” says Mitchel Chilcott, CEO, North Peace Savings and Credit Union, “was another occasion for us to a create memorable experience for the members while doing our part to help take care of the community we live in.” 

 

“The call came as a complete surprise to me last week,” stated Collington. “I’ve never had the experience to do anything like this before.” After his ride, James said that it was above and beyond what he expected. Between the flips, barrel rolls, and nosedives, James somehow managed to take pictures of his adventure in the sky too.

 

This astounding reward came from his decision to go paperless with his banking.  This unique, once in a lifetime event will be a great way to kick start the weekend festivities at the Fort St. John International Airshow.
