Company's FirstStrike golf challenge proves both fun and educational in Hawaii.

| December 8, 2010

Milwaukee, Wis. — Golfers from around the pest control industry joined Liphatech representatives in the company's FirstStrike Golf Challenge during the recent PestWorld 2010 show in Hawaii.

Liphatech featured the hole-in-one golf event in its booth at the show. More than 200 competitors lined up their best shot during exhibition hours at the three-day show.

Determining winners during the event was based on those participants who made a hole-in-one on the artificial-turf course. Those who made the shot were given a spin on the Liphatech prize wheel, where winners could take home anything from an 8-pound pail of FirstStrike to a Liphatech-branded umbrella and other golf-themed promotional items. Each participant in the challenge was entered into a daily drawing for a $250 gift card.

Gift-card winners included David Fisher of Rentokil, Reading, Pa.; Jacob Swett, Ameri Care Services, Murfreesboro, Tenn.; and Jeremiah Ryden, Gunter Pest and Lawn, Kansas City, Mo.

"The FirstStrike Golf Challenge is an extension of our successful FirstStrike Success Story challenge, which generated excellent first-hand experiences about the product from PMPs across the country,” said Jim Doll, senior marketing manager, pest management division, Liphatech. “We're at the show to call attention to our outstanding products, but we want to do it in an interesting and fun way. I think we accomplished that."
