SD Corn brings Beach Party to Dakotafest

Posted on August 14, 2006

Sweet rides, sweet prizes and sweet corn will be on tap in the South Dakota Corn Growers Association and South Dakota Corn Utilization Council tent, #118, at Dakotafest Aug. 15-17 in Mitchell.

Dakotafest goers will get a glimpse of the SDCGA’s planned “Beach Party” theme for their 2007 Annual Meeting on January 6 which will feature entertainment by the Surf City All Stars along with original Beach Boy David Marks.

Kicking off the fun at Dakotafest will be the SD Corn Safari promotion, a raffle that will culminate at the SDCGA Annual Meeting in a grand prize drawing for some lucky producer to drive home a Chevrolet Silverado 4×4 extended cab, sponsored by Chevrolet.

The truck giveaway is just the grand prize in a package lineup that also includes a trip select cities in the United States or Mexico as the second prize, sponsored by All About Travel, and a third prize of $1,200 in ethanol fuel from the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council. The SDCGA will be selling raffle tickets for the prizes at Dakotafest and leading up to the Annual Meeting on Jan. 6, 2007 in Sioux Falls.

While the three major prizes will be given away at the Annual Meeting, anyone who buys a raffle ticket at Dakotafest will also be entered into a daily drawing at Dakotafest for $100 in ethanol each day.

Also featured at the SDCGA/SDCUC booth, the Governor’s flex fuel Avalanche will be displayed on Tuesday; and South Dakota race car driver, Schaun Schnathorst of Huron, S.D. will display his ethanol-powered race car on Wednesday.

Then the SDCGA and SDCUC will sponsor a sweet corn feed on Thursday of Dakotafest from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Stop by the tent, which is located at the corner of

Main and First St
., across from Seed Row, and enjoy sweet corn compliments of SD Corn!

Participants will also be able to spin the prize wheel and have a chance at winning great take-home prizes such as beach towels, water coolers, mugs and more.
