If you attend the Northland Field Days this year you might be going home with one of two prize packs worth more than $20,000 say organisers.
Northland Field Days organisers have worked with a number of sponsors to put together two massive gate prize packs with a combined value of more than $40,000 for the first time ever.
Some of the big ticket items included in the prize packs include a quad bike donated by Rouse Motorcycles, a kayak, a portable hot house and a portable 5000 litre water tank.
Lew Duggan, Northland Field Days President was stunned by the generosity of companies in what is essentially an experiment by the organisation.
I am blown away by what people from the community have been prepared to give, said Mr Duggan. There are some very special businesses out there that are more than happy to share their good fortune.
There were two gate prizes on offer, a rural gate prize that is only available to farmers and a lifestyler prize which is available to everybody.
According to Mr Duggan the prize packs were only an indication of how action packed the 2012 Northland Fielddays would be.
And with the even being held in Dargaville on the 1st and 3rd of March just 2.5 hours north west of Auckland and 40 minutes west of Whangarei it would make for an unforgettable day trip for many.
I think we could be looking at a record breaking attendance this year, said Mr Duggan.
