Grind Like a Legend III: finalists and final event.

August 16, 2016 3M Canada


Sunday, August 14, 2016 was an unforgettable evening for three lucky 3MTM CubitronTM II Abrasive Products customers.

That evening, Grind Like A Legend III finalists, Eric Chevalier from Ancienne-Lorette, Quebec, Derek Kohut from Yorkton, Saskatchewan and David Marchinko from Windsor, Ontario attended the Toronto show of the Tragically Hip’s Man Machine Poem tour.

Great music, food and celebrations were in order as these finalists rocked out in a 3M suite at the Air Canada Centre.

On April 1, the legend returned for the final chapter of our 3M Grind Like A Legend contest. From April 1- July 31, every time a customer used  3MTM CubitronTM II Abrasive Products, they had a chance to win  either a 2016 Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy ® Motorcycle, or a 2016 Ram 1500 SXT Quad Cab 4X4 Pickup, or a 2016 Dodge Charger SE. After the contest came to a close, three lucky finalists were randomly drawn and invited to attend a special event with the 3M team where one of them would win the grand prize.

That lucky winner was David Marchinko.

“This is the most amazing thing that has ever happened,” Marchinko said. “I just really wanted to be here and was so happy to be a part of this experience.”

Marchinko has been a loyal user of  3M TM  CubitronTM II Abrasive Products. He and his co-workers started using the products after being introduced to CubitronTM II Abrasives by another colleague, Bill Thepanier, about three years ago.

“I tried it out and it was definitely a superior product,” he said. “My company has since been dedicated to the 3M product. It outlasts the other products.”

Marchinko has chosen a 2016 Ram 1500 SXT Quad Cab 4X4 pickup as his grand prize.

“It’s a more practical choice for the place I live,” he said.

Be sure to stay tuned to follow Marchinko’s journey as he receives his 2016 Ram 1500 SXT Quad Cab 4X4 pickup .
