San Francisco Twitter Giveaway Completed!
24 Oct, 2009
Today was the third giveaway based in San Francisco, CA and the chance to win an 09-10 Omatic Awesome after 2pm when I started putting clues out on twitter.
I’m in town visiting family so today was a total tourist day and in the hours leading up to the start of the 2pm giveaway, I enjoyed the touristy sites around San Francisco. I had no idea where the final destination would be and luckily for me, I had family to help me with figuring out a place to hang out and enjoy while holding a snowboard.
Huge thanks to Omatic snowboards for being part of the giveaway and offering up a 09-10 Omatic Awesome!
Omatic Twitter Giveaway Winners!
I started tweeting out clues at 2pm (PST) on a Saturday so I hoped that was a good time for everyone. The clues were:
1. I’m east of golden gate bridge and north of the bay bridge.
2. I’m near the water but not at fishermans wharf!
3. Twitpic Clue: good view
4. I’m heading west looking for the golden ticket.
5. I’m at the square for chocolates!
A little more than 2 hours into the first clue, I was found within a couple blocks from where I started and Emmanuelle with the help of a friend tracked me down! She was stoked and had been following me throughout each tweet, asking questions and with the help of a friend was able to find me and rushed up to high 5 me and claim the Omatic snowboard!
When I sent out the first clue I was sitting in a restaurant on the waterfront with my family and for the first three clues, we moved around in the area. By the 4th and 5th clue, I was holding the snowboard and walking to the final destination. I even had a car full of guys tell me rad snowboard but they didn’t know what was going on.
It was a great time and my family got to see a glimpse into what I do for the snowboard blog, how a free snowboard can make someone’s day and so stoked to give one away. Thanks Emmanuelle and Omatic!
