NOW Binding Giveaway Completed in Vancouver, BC!
30 Aug, 2012
After spending so many days in Canada this summer, it was only a matter of time before I had to do the first international Twitter Scavenger Hunt for shayboarder.com. Yesterday was the 6th twitter giveaway from shayboarder.com and it took place in the metro Vancouver area. I started posting clues at 12pm on twitter that would help people find my location. Whoever found me first got the 12-13 NOW Bindings that aren’t even out in stores yet!
A huge thanks to NOW Bindings for giving me the 12-13 IPO Bindings to giveaway!
For this twitter giveaway, the location was decided before the contest and the clues were thought up an hour before the contest began. I had my friend Moselle come along for the experience, to use her Vancouver knowledge and help out with the giveaway.
I started tweeting out clues at 12pm (PST) in hopes that people could use lunchtime to find me on the scavenger hunt. This giveaway went quicker than usual since I had to be back across the border by a certain time.
1. You can find me south and west of hwy 1 in the metro Vancouver area.
2. hmmm downtown, gas town, yaletown, coal harbour or west end? Where am I?
3. I’m near a wall for cycling, jogging or walking with views of the sea.
4. I’m really close to this momento from 2010. Less than 500 steps! pic.twitter.com/m7wgR2lf
Usually with a board it’s easy to be found but with a box of bindings, it was easier to blend into the surroundings in Vancouver. During the entire time, I was within the area of the final clue. By clue 2-3, we were enjoying lunch and hanging out. By the last clue, Scott was on the lookout and found us quickly! A high five and a good convo, I already knew Scott from Eagle Pass Heliskiing! He was stoked to get the bindings.
A huge congrats to Scott for winning the bindings and competing in the hunt!
Thanks to everyone who participated and tried to find me! It was a great day to be outside and stoked to share a giveaway with you guys in Vancouver! Thanks to NOW for allowing me to giveaway the bindings!
