The company has hidden an iPod Touch image on one of their Web site pages, and they are giving away an iPod Touch to the winner who finds the image. To start the search, visit www.phoenixenvcare.com/touchthis, fill out the registration form and start searching.

Every time an iPod Touch image is discovered, the company will move it to a new location on the site to keep the search going. The promotion will run until March 31, 2009, and is available to qualified and currently active golf course superintendents, assistant golf course superintendents and aquatic applicators.
