If you wear your Osky RAGBRAI T-shirt around town on Thursdays, you may win a prize.
Valinn McReynolds of the Oskaloosa RAGBRAI Publicity Committee was decked out in a tutu and bike helmet Thursday morning at Fareway to give away a $10 Osky Bucks check to someone wearing a RAGBRAI T-shirt and who knows the Oskaloosa slogan for RAGBRAI.
McReynolds said she will be out and about around lunch time and after work in search of someone wearing their RAGBRAI T-shirt to give away a check.
“This is to encourage people to wear their T-shirts to places with discounts,” McReynolds said.
There are 48 businesses in Oskaloosa that offer discounts for patrons who wear their Oskaloosa RAGBRAI T-shirts on Thursdays.
The winner of the first Osky Bucks check was Brian Snitker, who works at Fareway. Employees at Fareway wear their Osky RAGBRAI T-shirts every Thursday.
McReynolds said she will be out on Thursday, July 11, and then July 18 and 25 to give away more checks.
