NHF Day Sponsor Yamaha to Give Away Grizzly 450 EPS ATV


SPRINGFIELD, Mo.--Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., the leading maker of ATV and Side-by-Side (SxS) vehicles for outdoorsmen and women, continues its support of outdoor recreational sports and conservation efforts by sponsoring the 2010 National Hunting and Fishing (NHF) Day.

As part of the partnership, Yamaha has donated an all-new 2011 Grizzly 450 with Electric Power Steering (EPS) that one lucky outdoorsman will win. The sweepstakes is being promoted at NHF Day events nationwide, and anyone can enter to win by simply registering online at through the end of November.

"Yamaha is proud to support NHF Day and the entire outdoor community," said Steve Nessl, marketing manager for Yamaha's ATV/SxS group. "We enjoy the outdoors whether it's hunting, fishing or riding ATVs and strongly support the safe, responsible use of our lands. Thanks to NHF Day for continuing a great tradition recognizing outdoorsmen and women."

Scheduled annually on the fourth Saturday of September, this year's celebration of hunting, fishing and conservation is set for Sept. 25, 2010. NHF Day is the most effective grassroots effort ever taken to promote outdoor sports and conservation. Congress formalized NHF Day in 1972 as a public reminder that conservation depends on funding and leadership from hunters, shooters and anglers. Through licenses and special taxes, traditional sportsmen and women provide most of the funding for state conservation agencies today. In turn, results benefit all citizens who appreciate healthy fish, wildlife and habitat.

Yamaha is a continued supporter of conservation efforts for outdoor recreational enthusiasts.

"We're thrilled to have Yamaha on for another year of support," said Denise Wagner of Wonders of Wildlife museum in Springfield, Mo.--the official home of NHF Day. "The ATV giveaway has been a huge hit amongst NHF Day participants and we look forward to another great turnout at this year's festivities nationwide."

The sweepstakes is open to all hosts, volunteers and attendees of any of the hundreds of nationwide events celebrating NHF Day. The contest is also open to all outdoor recreational sports participants. One lucky entrant, 18 years-of-age or older, will win a 2011 Grizzly 450 EPS. Approximate retail value is $7,499. No purchase necessary. The sweepstakes ends at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on Nov. 30, 2010. The winner will be determined by random drawing.
