ERIE, PA (February 7, 2014) – Ron & Betty Ulrich of Erie, Pennsylvania already had plans to camp more this year with the RV they purchased in 2013 at Boyer RV Center.  They just never dreamed that after receiving $800 of free camping in 2013 with the purchase of that RV that they’d wind up winning another $500 of free camping for 2014 too!  In addition, Boyer RV Center presented them with a gift certificate worth $200.00 of RV supplies from their store and B & R Camper Sales gave them a $100 gift certificate from their store, bringing their total winnings to $800.00!
    
The Ulrich family was recently named the winners of the fourth annual Very Special Camper Contest (VSC), sponsored by participating campgrounds and RV Dealers in Western Pennsylvania.
“This program gave us the opportunity to visit campgrounds we’d never been to before,” said Betty Ulrich. “I’m planning to retire in March, and we plan to visit even more of them in 2014.”
Like the Ulrich family, any camper purchasing a new RV from any of the participating RV dealers receives one night of free camping for a family of four from each of the 24 participating Western Pennsylvania campgrounds.  This program is valued at over $800 of free camping.
In addition, any camper who stays at eight or more of the 24 participating campgrounds and RV parks and then submits their completed contest entry form within a year of their RV Purchase, is then entered into a special drawing to receive an additional $500 in gift certificates, which can then be used at any campground in the PACamping.com organization.
