Congratulations to our $250 Winner of the “We Want You Back Former Readership Survey” Contest
Bill Bremmer of Fairview, Pa., the $250 winner of the “2012 We Want You Back! Former Readership Survey” contest, didn’t mean to let his subscription lapse. He was just traveling all over the country while working in the oil and gas business, and forgot to renew.
“I’ve been a reader since the magazine first came available,” he said, adding that he thought the photography in each issue was fantastic.
“I like the spirit, the spirit of Alaska magazine,” he said. “I love just about everything about Alaska magazine. It’s well-written, very interesting. I grab it and read it cover to cover. I start with the obituaries and go backward. Something must be in the water up there because people live to such old ages.”
He said the first thing he is going to do with his winnings is resubscribe to the magazine. The rest is going in a fund for his first visit to the state.
“I’m going to get up there come hell or high water,” he said. “It’s one of the items on my bucket list.”
Bremmer said he loves the people, the outdoors, the water and mountains of the Great Land. He’s also interested in Alaska’s promising oil and gas industry. “Know anywhere I can get a job up there?” he asked.
“Maybe next spring I’ll snoop around and see what’s going on there. I want to see if the people you have in your magazine actually exist,” he teased. “I’ve wanted to come to Alaska since I was a teenager, before Alaska was a state.”
As for the phone call describing how to claim the winnings:
“You made my day! No, you made my week!”
