Liphatech brought back the ever-popular golf challenge with a soft bait theme for this year’s show. Contestants had two chances to navigate the course. Those able to sink a putt spun the prize wheel for gifts from a mouse pad to a 16-lb. pail of Resolv or FirstStrike. In addition, a participant’s name was drawn each day to receive a $200 Visa gift card:
- Oct. 17: Daniel Fleisher of Pestex Pest-Free Systems, Newtonville, Mass.
- Oct. 18: Mark Swihart of ACE Pest Control, North Webster, Ind.
- Oct. 19: Joseph Stehle of AARD Pest Control, Lynnwood, Wash.
- Oct. 20: Louis Sorkin, BCE, of Entsult Associates, Rye Brook, N.Y.
In keeping with the spirit of being in Boston, booth visitors could also guess the number of Boston Baked Beans in a jar. Greg Flynn of Braemar Pest Control in St. John, New Brunswick, was the closest guess to 840 beans and received a $200 Visa gift card.
