Birthday Giveaway Completed! Congrats to Kristi and Chris!

12 Jun, 2009

The Birthday Giveaway went on today in Denver, Colorado where I tweeted clues on twitter that would help find my location in Denver.

I was in Denver early today to swing by NS so Stacia could see the factory tour and pick up the 09-10 Never Summer Circuit-R.  I also grabbed a bunch of stickers and included them in the giveaway.
I started tweeting out clues at noon, here’s a look at the clues I put out as I walked around a 2 block radius in Denver.  
1)  I am south of I-70 and East of I-25.
2.  Looking high, kids screaming in the sky
3)  National Velvet (including a picture of me in front of an art sculpture)
4)  Are you Hungry I smell brats!
5)  At the fork of the river!
Basically I was near and could see the Elitch Garden Amusement Park and moved from a art sculpture to the park across the street where I hung out at a fork in the river visible from two bridges.
Just over an hour and a half into the twitter clues, I was found and two people came running up the riverwalk to find me waiting for them.  I received the Happy Birthday song from Kristi who won the board!  She was with Chris who helped her track down the clues.
We ended up hanging out at the spot and talking for a while, Justin from comclovin was also in pursuit and joined us to celebrate with beers and pizza.  Kristi was very nice and brought me Birthday cupcakes as my gift and showed her love for Never Summer as we parted ways.
Thanks to everyone involved in the pursuit, it was a big success and my friend Stacia ran into a couple people who didn’t find me unfortunately…I definitely hope for more giveaways like this and the opportunity for more people to win something in the future!    

I made a mini video from today of the winners running up and wading through the river to claim their prize!
