It has taken several hours to weed through all of the comments and shares, verifying the entries were valid (that they had liked the pages), and canceling out dual entries from multiple comments, which left us with 427 qualified entries. We randomized the list, and plugged it into a random number generator. The results, #61:
Vortex optics are the best Josh Wright Logan Utah on Contests
Congratulations Josh Wright of Logan, Utah! You are one very lucky individual indeed, now I can only hope you don't have the other contestants beating down your door trying to take it from you! This contest received amazing attention right off the bat, in fact, the day we released the information we shot up to nearly 1,200 page views for that day, a number we have never came close to in the past. Through it all you all helped us gain nearly 1,000 new followers between Facebook and Twitter! The new viewership and interaction with our fans will now enable us to be able to do more for you, as we look to hold more giveaways and contests through this upcoming year. You all are the best!
As for me, the pure joy of this contest was in going through the comments received and seeing how tight knit the outdoor community really is. Through the tweets and Facebook updates we had some very fun interaction during the contest. I also enjoyed very much seeing new viewers and followers join us not only from every corner of our great nation, but from around the world! We picked up new viewers from the UK, Sweden, and even Australia! Welcome to all of you, we hope that you continue to be a part of our community here!
I want to say thanks to you all that have entered, shared, and anxiously awaited the announcement on a winner. I wish we could give every one of you a prize, but there can only be 1 winner this time. Do us a favor and continue to support our sponsors, and feel free to drop them a line letting them know how much you enjoy their sponsorship of SUH&F!
Josh, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a message on Facebook with your shipping address and we will get that information passed on to Vortex so they can get your scope out to you.
A huge thanks to Vortex Optics for not only providing the scope for our giveaway, but for your sponsorship of Southern Utah Hunt and Fish. We are excited to see the new products that lie in store for us in 2013! It is quite something to have the best optics maker in the business as a part of what we do. We look forward to another great year with Vortex!
