Fish/No Fish for Tackle Boxes of Fortune

By Bud Edwards

Fish/No Fish, modeled after the hit NBC television game show Deal/No Deal, joins the Tournament night time entertainment schedule Monday evening thanks to title sponsors Clinic Pharmasave and Downtown Pharmasave, Director of Special Projects Bud Edwards announced this week.

Kim Metke, pharmacist and owner of both Pharmasave pharmacies, has been a Tournament supporter since 1995 and quickly saw Fish/No Fish as an excellent marketing opportunity.

“When I read all the features and benefits available and the plans to put together an exciting evening of entertainment I quickly realized that Fish/No Fish is going to be a tremendous hit”.

“There will be two games similar to the television show with contestants drawn from the audience trying to take home the top prizes of $10,000 in game # 1 and $25,000 in game # 2 , Kim explained.

“The Deal/No Deal metal cases containing prize amounts will be replaced by Tackle Boxes of Fortune. Each tackle box holds a prize ranging from $0.01 to up to $25,000 plus the Captain (Banker) will be making cash offers to buy the one selected by each contestant, just like on TV”.

The 52 tackle boxes used in the two Fish/No Fish games each contain an assortment of top quality tackle and other goodies. They will be given away to audience members as door prizes throughout the evening as the games progress. The total value of the tackle boxes and contents will exceed $2,000.

The Fish/No Fish part of the evening entertainment will be capped off with the draw for the Grand Door Prize rumored to be a trip for two to an exotic warm popular destination.

“We could give away up to $40,000 in cash and door prizes in a couple of tension filled hours. I really expect the audience to get involved and have a great time yelling advice to the lucky contestants who will be on the main stage selecting which boxes to open hoping they contain only low prize amounts” Kim continued.

“I think Fish/No Fish will really kick-off the Tournament Week this year. We plan to have advance tickets available at both Downtown Pharmasave and Clinic Pharmasave beginning on Mall Days, the B. I. A. annual Scott Street event leading to Fun in the Sun and Canada Day” Kim explained.

“I really expect high demand for tickets for a chance to win $10,000, $25,000, the Grand Door Prize trip or one of the 52 tackle boxes so I encourage everyone to drop by either store and purchase their Fish/No Fish tickets early” Kim concluded.
