Jose Blanco Webcast - Contest!

So I figured I'd put all the details here in one post.

How the contest works -

Each person who registered to watch and checked the "Yes" box for entering the contest is given an entry, provided they watched more than 10 minutes of the webcast. I understand it's long, but no points for just registering.

If those users are also CW forums members with 1 or more posts of quality (and I'll offer up to other CW members to judge anything that's IMHO NOT quality and accept or reject those...) get a second entry.

Not to encourage new member participation in our little community, if they have 10 or more posts, they get a 3rd entry. Existing FOGS are not qualified for this, sorry guys.

The contest now officially closes midnight SUNDAY EST 23 November. I decided to extend this due to a recent rush of registrations.

The prizes, in no particular order:

1 winner gets a the hat/golf prize pack from Blue Havana II
3 winners get the tasting cigar. re-watch and taste along with us!
4 winners get a choice of either - 5 pack of Senorial cigars or Senorial polo. The polo's are mens sizes. tag says XXL, but it's an XL.
3 winners get a beautiful Senorial Scarf


Nice swag!!
Many thanks to Jose for his knowledge, his permission to webcast the event, and the fantastic prizes.

Make sure you've registered and watched the webcast!!

I am emailing all the entrants today. Any bounced emails will be excluded from the final drawing.
The drawing will be done with a random number generator tomorrow.
If you are notified that you won the 'five pack or Shirt" those shirts and 5 packs will go will go first come first served - there are 2 of each - email back your choice ASAP.

The emails are sent. The body of the email is this:
Here's how we do this:

Every person who selected the "contest entry = YES" option on the registration, and who watched the video, was given 1 'ticket'.

Every person who met the criteria above, but was also a cigarweekly.com forums member got 1 bonus ticket.

These tickets are assigned number, from a random generated sequence list.

Upon confirmation that your email address is valid, your ticket(s) will be included in the drawing. The drawing will use a random number generator from random.org to pull the winners.

Winners who are selected the "cigar 5 pack OR shirt" get to pick 1 or the other, and, because there are 4 such prizes (2 5 packs and 2 shirts), first reply gets their pick.


Because entrants are given 'tickets' randomly for fairness, the prizes will be pulled in the following random order:
tasting cigar
polo/5pk
scarf
blue havana prize
polo/5pk
scarf
polo/5pk
polo/5pk
tasting cigar
scarf
tasting cigar

The random drawing will be run using a list generator on Random.org later today.

I'm paying the postage to ship these all - so guys and gals, please use my amazon.com link this holiday season!
