What has your home state contributed to TPIR?
« on: April 14, 2017, 03:57:45 PM »
For North Carolina (my home state), we've given TPIR Carson's Of High Point, Thomasville, Broyhill, Bemco, Carolina Chair and Hatteras Hammocks. I'm curious as to products/prizes that your home state has had offered on TPIR?

My home state is New York, but I'm from Buffalo. My hometown area alone has given TPiR Mazia's Pizza and trips to Niagara Falls.

EDIT: I see that a trip to Rochester (Lake Ontario) was a prize in Do the Math this season: http://www.newyorkupstate.com/articles/19202063/price_is_right_contestant_wins_5-night_vacation_to_rochester_video.amp

Pennsylvania: various trips to Philadelphia over the years, of course...but more importantly original TPiR host Bill Cullen, who was born in Pittsburgh (which is also my hometown).

From my home state of Maine, I've seen Old Town canoes offered before.

Wisconsin - Ashley Furniture, plus I'm sure there have been a few Harleys and AMC automobiles.

I'm pretty sure my state of Pennsylvania has also offered vacations to the Poconos over the years as well.

I think they offer Poconos trips semi-frequently. Or at least they did in the not-too-distant past.

I'm from New Jersey- I believe a trip to Atlantic City has been offered on the show in the past, the Campbell's Soup headquarters is in NJ, and of course the set uses uses a ton of light bulbs!

RI has had a few trips to it over the years, with one last season to Providence. There's been some to Newport in the long past if memory serves, nice place for its lovely 'summer cottages' (mansions), and Tennis HOF. What better to go with your trips than American Tourister luggage? RI as well. Games don't show up as much as they used to for prizes, but Hasbro has HQ here, so there's that for the non-trip department. But hey, you think RI, we're the Ocean State, so surely something on that front, right? Yep, that'd be the WaterRower company for WaterRowers, which don't show up often, granted, but I know they've been offered in the past few seasons.

By those employed by the show, in a historic sense? We're also the home state of one Claudia Jordan.

Did they ever offer trips to the NFF?

I'm pretty sure Smith Brothers of Berne furniture has been offered.

Indiana.

(I think one of the NCAA Final Four packs was for Indianapolis too...)
Glad they aren't my council-people.
