A Husqvarna Automower® is a machine you wouldn’t be incorrect to think has come from the future, space or even better, BOTH. When the geniuses  at Sweden first came up with the concept a few heads took a sharp turn, but here we are over 20 years later. A point in human-kinds history where we are able to kick our feet up, sit back and enjoy ourselves while our Husqvarna Automower® maintains our lawn. This is instead of us having to drag out a pesky push mower or get ourselves onto a ride-on mower for roughly 2 hours a week. Reminiscing on the story behind Husqvarna Automower® the team in Husqvarna Ireland want to generate their own head turning phenomena at this years National Ploughing Championships.  That is why we’re having a treasure hunt.

You may be asking what will a Husqvarna Automower® treasure hunt consist of, well lets just say A LOT. With us having spent over 20 years talking about all the time a Husqvarna Automower® will save you, it is about time we start talking about what we recommend you do with that time. These suggestions being based on some of the pass times of the staff of Husqvarna Ireland.

To further the idea of a treasure hunt we don’t just have one stand at the National Ploughing Championships, but also have five additional satellite stands. Our main anchor stand located in block 4, row 15, stand 321 is a good base for all attendees to start at to get involved with our Husqvarna Automower® treasure hunt. From our mainstand you will be able to pick up our exclusive Husqvarna Automower® treasure map which will highlight each of our five satellite stands. With each of the satellite stands being its own themed destination for you to see what our staff do instead of mowing their lawn thanks to Husqvarna Automower®.

Where the real fun comes into our Husqvarna Automower® treasure hunt is how you engage with it. At each of the satellite stands there will be a Husqvarna Automower® maintaining the grass. In front of our Husqvarna Automower® we will have a cut-out stand-in sign depicting what our staff do with all the free time their Husqvarna Automower® affords them. We want you to take a photo behind the cut-out stand-in signs and post it to your social media account on Facebook or Instagram tagging us using the hashtag “#HusqvarnaNPC”. Don’t think we would ask you to do all that without offering something in return. If you are bold enough to participate you could be in with a chance to win a prize.

The prize will see one lucky entrant win not only their own Husqvarna Automower®, but also loads of free time as they will no longer have to mow their own lawn. Jokes aside we don’t want to leave our winner twiddling their thumbs with all the free time they’ll now have on their hands thanks to Husqvarna Automower®. To avoid a scenario of thumb twiddling we will also be giving the winner a getaway to a destination that relates to the theme of the cut-out stand-in sign that won them the competition. The getaway destination prize is of a value of €1,000.

How to maximise your chances to win the prize unfortunately doesn’t involve taking hundreds of variations of one photo at the one stand. It does however involve you going to each of the satellite stands to take a photo, which you post on either Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag “#HusqvarnaNPC”. This means you can enter up to five times.

The themes of our five satellite stands are the following;

  • Princess Paradise – for all of those who want to spend the time saved not having to maintain their lawn, maintaining their own physical appearance.
  • Mermaid’s Tale – The perfect place to express what type  of beach goer you are; are you more likely to be underwater like a mermaid or hanging under a tree protecting your pasty Irish skin from the suns rays like a sloth?
  • Smackdown – A perfect spot to make your childhood dreams of becoming a wrestling star come true.
  • The Last Rodeo – For any of you out their who are handy on a horse we can confirm the last rodeo is the right spot for you this National Ploughing Championship.
  • 19th Hole – Finally, after you’ve lived a life of adventure and are ready to take it easy, head down to our golf course to pitch a few holes. You might even spot a Husqvarna Automower® maintaining the grounds. 

Don’t be shy we want everyone to be in with a chance to win our amazing prize. But to do so you must tag us using the hashtag “#HusqvarnaNPC”, on either Facebook or Instagram.
