A civilian employee with Real Property Operations (RP Ops) was handed the keys to a new 2016 Hyundai Accent at the Industrial Supplier Trade Show Sept. 14 in the Naden Drill Shed.

Evan Smith, an electrician with RP Ops, was the winner of Victoria Hyundai’s vehicle draw, and was presented the prize from the dealership’s General Sales Manager Cole Coates.

Only two nights earlier Smith was enjoying a get together with friends and family at his Victoria home when he received an unexpected call from the dealership.

Smith said he was in disbelief to hear he had won and thought the call was a hoax.

“I didn’t believe them at first and thought it was some kind of a crank phone call or scam,” he says. “It was a pretty cool feeling when I finally realized I had won the car. It’s my first Hyundai I have ever owned, so I’m excited about trying it out.”

The contest opened Sept. 5, 2016, and closed Sept. 9, 2017. It was open to all Department of National Defence employees who were at age of majority at the time of entry and were legal residents of Victoria.

This is the third car giveaway by Victoria Hyundai to a base employee.
