Calling all social networking anglers: "like" Lake Murray and win a trip
Facebook users can win a chance at an all-expense-paid outdoor getaway for four by going to https://www.facebook.com/TakeMeFishing?sk=app_335076299898427 this week and "liking" Lake Murray State Park.
This week, Lake Murray State Park is up against Arizona's Alamo Lake State Park and Texas' Guadalupe River State Park in "Nature's Waterpark Showdown," a weekly contest taking place on the TakeMeFishing.org Facebook page. Each week the contest pits three state parks against each other to see which one can get the most "likes," and the winning park for the week is added to a list with seven others from throughout the contest period. Facebook users who "like" a park in the contest can register to win a trip for four to one of the top eight parks of their choice. Additionally, $50 gift cards to Bass Pro Shops will be given away weekly.
"Let's show Lake Murray State Park our support by going to the TakeMeFishing.org Facebook page this week and voting," said Micah Holmes, information supervisor for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. "We want people to know we are proud of the great fishing and other recreational opportunities our state has to offer, and this contest is a great way to tell the rest of the country how we feel. Plus, you can win a great trip."

The RBFF uses TakeMeFishing.org as a comprehensive boating and fishing resource for the public.
