Radegast’s Horn Of Plenty Has Been Found
12 June 2009
Nosovice, 10 June 2009 - On the first Saturday of June, a big competition for 30 finalists of the Radegast brand's spring consumer contest titled "Look for Radegast's horn of plenty and win 250 thousand crowns" took place. The lucky but above all deserving finder of Radegast's horn of plenty was Petr Cymorek from Třinec, who received an original debit card with an account deposit of 250 000 crowns.
The principle of the competition's first round was to send an SMS or fill out a form on the Web with unique numeric codes that contestants found under the Radegast bottle caps. Every tenth message won one of prizes such as GPS navigation, a multipurpose knife or a map of the Beskids. Fans of draft beer didn't miss out either. After five drawn beers, the bartenders drew one winner who received a price and an SMS code. With the SMS, it was possible to qualify to the finals. Nearly 22,000 people took part in the contest.
The chosen finalists displayed their courage, skill, dexterity and patience in strenuous and attractive events such as jumping in the "seven mile" boots on the track, scaling a climbing wall, driving a quad-bike or eating a mealworm. "Our goal was not to make only the first prize winner happy after the finals, but all other finalists as well. Radegast gave the participants unusual experiences that will create beautiful memories," said Radegast brand manager Pavel Kmínek.
Over 200 people from the ranks of contenders' friends and family members attended the final competition and created a great competition atmosphere. The event was prepared for Plzeňský Prazdroj, a.s., Radegast brand, by Viking Agency from Havířov. Besides the organization, one of the most difficult tasks was the construction of an artificial maze from pipes and black plastic foil.
