STURTEVANT, Wis., August 19, 2015 – The summer brings an end to our inaugural T.E.C. Ambassador Contest winners. The event brought together five Evinrude enthusiasts who submitted entries to the contest answering the question “Why do you love your Evinrude?”Winning the contest meant opportunity to experience some exclusive industry events while representing as a proud Evinrude outboard owner. Entries came from Evinrude and Johnson owners that were part of our Evinrude Owners group The Evinrude Club. (T.E.C.) Any Evinrude/Johnson owner can be a member of T.E.C by signing up at

The winners came from all over the U.S., Ted Gates from Fort Meyers, Florida but originally from Minnesota, Danny Woodke from Gillette, WI, Lars Strom from Stuart, Florida whose Evinrude racing career originated from Sweden, John Jenkins from Portland, Maine and Ryan Harrington from St. Petersburg, FL. Ryan was so impressed with the launch of the new Evinrude E-TEC G2 that he applied to become an Evinrude Pro Staff member with his dealer Suncoast Marine in Largo, FL.

“Hard to believe it's been a year as an Evinrude Ambassador. BRP is great company and I cannot be happier with my Evinrude E-TEC G2.” said Ryan Harrington

These T.E.C. “Ambassadors” experienced exclusive trips to the 2014 Evinrude BRP Club event, which launched the new Evinrude E-TEC G2 as well as V.I.P trips to the Bassmaster Classic, FLW Championship and various boat shows including the industry-leading International Miami Boat Show in 2015. The T.E.C. members were professionally filmed and interviewed throughout their journey as our brand ambassador. You can watch their experience on our YouTube page
