Random Adventure Winner #1

You know how most bloggy giveaways have that little blurb when they announce a winner that the winner must contact them within 48 hours or a new one will be chosen?  Well, I think it took about 48 seconds for Elizabeth @ Canyon Cairns to respond yesterday – I love (and encourage) that sort of enthusiasm!

To choose the random winners, I went completely old school.  I put the commenters’ names into a spreadsheet, printed it out, cut it into strips and then drew the winners from a hat:

Virtual Race Winners 004I borrowed the hat from Little Boy.  I don’t think the cat was very excited to help.

Virtual Race Winners 005All the entrants.

Virtual Race Winners 009Folding all the strips of paper in half so we couldn’t accidentally read the names on them.

Virtual Race Winners 010All the names in a hat.

Virtual Race Winners 011You have to close your eyes and turn your head to make it fair.

Virtual Race Winners 012YAY!!  Random Winner #1 is Track Coach and Adorable Wife!!

Congratulations Tressa and Jesse!  Please email me (PahlaB2@gmail.com) with your choice of one of the Spinervals DVDs listed HERE or the CafePress beach tote!  You have 48 seconds to contact me…ha, ha, ha!!

More Random Winners coming soon!!

I like the impartial name drawers. We made my nephew do that this weekend. :)

Can you blame me? It's a fabulous contest and I was on my toes all weekend waiting for Monday morning! :D

Thanks again!

Some times old school is the only way to rock. Congrats to Tressa and Jesse. They are on a roll as they just won the CSN giveaway on my blog last week.

Ok so not 48 sec but definitely within a few hours! Jesse is pumped and a little nervous now that he is going to get his butt kicked by a DVD! I'll email you now! Thanks!

I love that you had a spreadsheet! Some people make fun of me for my affinity towards spreadsheets...but I can't help myself. They're just so useful!

MCM Mama said...

I love it! That's how we do random winners around here too. ;o)

Yay to the winner! I'm so bummed I missed out on this virtual adventure! I meant to do it before I left for AZ, but I just didn't get it done! Maybe next time! :)
