When I announced our little contest a month ago on June 4th, I never imagined it would be so difficult to give away two tickets to a Major League Baseball game! But here’s how the events of this past month have evolved:
The original winner, Chris Kompst, from Kihei, HI, declined to accept and sent us a very nice email, which I’ll share with you here with his permission:
“Wow! I”ve never won anything in a contest before. My son and I are Angels fans, but we live in Kihei on the island of Maui in Hawaii. My regret is that we won’t get to the mainland to see a game during the season, so can you pass the tickets on to someone who can use them? You have my permission to release the information in your blog. Keep up the good work and thank you. Chris Kompst, Kihei, Hawaii”
So another name was drawn and after seven days there was no response. Then a third name was drawn, and after another seven days with no response a fourth name was drawn. And this time we hit the jackpot.
The winner is David Wing from Three Rivers, Michigan. Dave’s a Detroit Tigers fan, but since he’ll be vacationing in California towards the end of this month, he requested tickets to the July 19th San Francisco Giants -Los Angeles Dodgers game at AT&T Park. David’s now in receipt of his tickets and we wish him a wonderful time at the ballpark! Thanks for being a loyal subscriber to Garlicfriesandball’s Blog David. It wouldn’t mean a thing without you!
And that goes for all of you! This was fun! We’ll do it again when we reach another milestone! Happy All Star Break everyone!
