From June 1st through 19th, we gave you the chance to qualify for a brand new riding lawn mower from Ryan's Hardware and Paint in Newburgh with Father Mows Best by listening for special "Father Mows Best" songs each weekday and being the ninth caller. When all was said and done, 99 people qualified to win, and on Saturday (June 27th, 2020) at 11:00 a.m. one of them will have themselves a sweet new Troy Bilt riding lawn mower valued at $1,400!

Normally when we do a giveaway like this, we'd invite all our qualifiers to be on site to participate in the giveaway. As we know all too well, these are not normal times, so instead we'll be doing a safe, socially distant giveaway during a Facebook Live video on our Facebook page. Here's how it will work:

  • Each of our 99 qualifiers will be represented by a sheet of paper with their name on it. In no particular order, each sheet will be taped to the parking lot of the hardware store in one big loop. The first sheet adhered to the lot will be given the number "1." The second sheet, "2," and so on until all sheets have a number between 1 and 99.
  • We'll pour approximately one cup of gas in the mower and drive it around the loop until it runs out of gas. In the event the mower runs out of gas before one complete lap can be made around the entire loop, another cup of gas will be added in order to complete the lap.
  • The name of the qualifier closest to the front edge of the driver's seat of the mower will be declared the winner.
  • In the event the mower stops between two names, a measurement will be taken from each name to the front edge of the seat. The name closest to the front edge based on the measurement will be declared the winner.
  • In the event the mower experiences a mechanical malfunction, or other unforeseen circumstances prevent the giveaway from being executed in the manner described above, numbers 1 through 99 will be input into the random number generator feature at The qualifier whose number matches the result generated will be declared the winner.

Tune in at 11:00 a.m. Saturday morning to see who the big winner will be!
