We're having a contest!

by Valerie Barker


Beginning the first of August, we will be heading out on a road trip. The destination is a secret, as are the stops along the way. Each day, we will post a picture of us at a secret location and our readers can guess where we are! The next day, we will reveal the previous day’s location, as well as post a new secret location.

Prizes:

Daily Prizes (for guessing the secret location each day) - $10 Happy Hearts gift certificate

Grand Prize (for guessing the final destination) - $20 Happy Hearts gift certificate

Here are the ground rules.

  1. No previous knowledge of the Washington Woos is required to play. We have not mentioned any hints on our blog as to where we could be going, so tell all your friends. Even if they haven’t read our blog before, they still might have the right answer.
  2. No pictures will be photoshopped, except if the name of our location has to be blurred, for example, if we are standing in front of a sign. This means that we will physically be in every location.
  3. We will be travelling only by automobile. That is a good hint because we can only travel the distance that a car can travel in a single day. Of course, our parents could be speed demons or slow pokes, you just never know.
  4. We will be departing from Seattle, Washington, USA.
  5. We may or may not travel the same distance each day.

Here are the contest rules.

  1. If your human is a friend of our mom on Facebook, you are not eligible to win the grand prize, but you are still eligible for the daily game. This is because our mom has mentioned the final destination on Facebook but not the secret locations along the way.
  2. The first commenter to correctly guess the daily secret location will win the prize.
    1. If no commenter correctly guesses the daily secret location, we will award the daily prize to one of the commenters, based upon a random drawing.
    2. Please only make ONE guess on each post for the daily prize.
    3. We will reveal the winner on the next day’s post, so guesses will only be eligible to win if they are left within 24 hours of the posting of the photo clue.
  3. The first commenter to correctly guess the final destination will win the prize.
    1. If no commenter correctly guesses the final destination, anyone who left a comment on any of the Summer Road Trip posts will be entered to win the grand prize and we will award it based upon a random drawing.
    2. You can guess as many times as you want for the final destination, as you might get some clues as to where we could be headed as you learn more about our secret locations along the way.
    3. We will reveal the final destination (and the winner) in our last post of the series, which will be on August 11, 2010.
    4. You may leave your final destination guesses as a comment on any of our Summer Road Trip posts, just make sure you say that it’s a final destination guess.
  4. All prizes will be distributed via email, so if you are a winner, you will have to provide us with your email so we can email you the prize.

That’s it! Let us know if you have any questions. It’s not too complicated, but we want to make sure we are clear with the rules. Please spread the word because the more players we have, the more fun it will be!

The fun will start on August 1, 2010!!!
