Haven Horse Ranch first past the post!
Not-for-profit organization Haven Horse Ranch has taken the 1st prize of a PREMIER mosquito trap in the Mega-Catch™ May on-line competition being run as part of its sponsorship of the N.Z. All Star Cheerleaders.
The New Zealanders competed at the World Cheerleading Cup held in Florida recently where they were a big hit with the locals. Wearing distinctive Mega-Catch™ caps and tops, they were constantly bombarded with comments; “love the t-shirts” and “where’s New Zealand?” They were not asked about mosquitoes – unfortunately with its temperate climate and regular rainfall, mosquitoes are a well established fact of life in Florida.
All Star goodwill ambassador, Cameron Ramsay-Gibbons thought Haven Horse Ranch a clear winner and worthy recipient for the PREMIER mosquito trap.
“The horse ranch sounds really cool. I wish we had something like that here in New Zealand” was Cameron’s reaction after reading about the work Ric and his small army of volunteers does in the community.
“I am attaching a recent release that speaks to Haven Horse Ranch and what we do and have done here for the past 20 years. As you can imagine it is hard to get people to focus on anything when they are being eaten by mosquitoes. We have been literally deluged by a 4 day low pressure system that had dropped some 12 to 15 inches of rain on us and the expectations are that in about 1 to 2 weeks we will be battling the worst season of the pesky critters ever.”
“We hope you will consider our kids for your prize of the Mega Catch™ Premier.” Ric Lehman.
Well done Ric, we all admire your commitment to working with youngsters; teaching them how hard work, being responsible for themselves and the horses they care for, and helping others, will serve them well in life. Your trap is on its way!
Update from Haven Horse Ranch, June 16, 2009:
“We are truly amazed at how well the PREMIER trap works. First night’s catch was several hundred mosquitoes and no-see-ums, 3 yellow flies and one gypsy moth!“ Ric Lehman.
