In the last newsletter I hooted and hollered about the growing number of Facebook fans RWC’s page has amassed in a relatively short period of time (611 at the time of that writing). I also mentioned the possibility of making a fun contest out of predicting when we will reach the 1000 fan mark.
Seeing a couple of fan predictions being made on the Facebook page itself reminded me that I should put something together before we get to close too our milestone!
Nothing too fancy here, but the person who guesses the right date (or closest) get’s a free pound of Red Worms shipped to them. Unfortunately, this can only be awarded to U.S. participants – international fans are still welcome to play too though, since the prestige of winning such an event is surely reward enough! Haha – ok, I’m kidding! I’ll see if I can think up some other possible rewards for those who can’t have worms shipped to them.
The one thing that came to mind right away was the question of how to deal with multiple people wanting a given date – WELL, to make things super simple, and to reward those who are super keeners, I’ve decided to count comments on this blog post as the only “official entries” for the contest. Once someone declares a particular date it is theirs – no one else can register for that date. SO, make sure you read through the comments before leaving your guess!
1) The contest involves guessing the date you think the RWC Facebook Fan page will hit 1000 fans (you can see the current number simply by looking at the banner in the sidebar – 686 as I type this post). If you guess the right date (and you live in the continental U.S.) you will receive a pound of Red Worms (shipped to you).
2) Only one person per date (and one date per person – haha) – first come first serve.
3) To register your date, leave it as a comment on this blog post (not on the Facebook fan page) – make sure you have read all the others posted before you to see if anyone has already taken your desired date.
NOTE: From time to time my site will hold comments for moderation (if it’s your first comment ever etc etc), so don’t sweat it if you don’t see it appear instantly. I will approve them as fast as I can, and will ensure that any duplicate dates posted as a result are corrected (with the first person being credited with registering the date)
Should be fun!
