I had several emails in the spring asking me if I was going to sponsor another contest this year. I am holding a contest this year, I just wanted to hold off until this fall to do so.
If you are new to the site this is something I did in the spring of 2020 and 2021. This year is going to be the biggest ever. There is going to be more prize money than in the previous two contests. I am also going to match the prize money by donating $2000 to local charities in SW Colorado. I am still researching charities but they will be various food banks and charities that benefit children during the holidays. If you donated on September 1st or later you are already in. Active monthly donors at the time of the drawing are also eligible. The cash drawings will be on Friday, December 9th. The charitable contributions will be made on or before December 6th. I will announce all of the prize winners after I contact them.
Merchants are welcome to donate goods or services. I am not going actively solicit any businesses this year, it has been a difficult year for many so I do not want to put any pressure on anyone.
$2000 in cash prizes will be distributed as follows: Two $25o prizes, four $150 prizes, four $100 prizes, four $75 prizes, and four $50 prizes. The good folks at Eolus wanted to participate again this year. They are adding four $50 gift cards to the prize list. PJ’s Market has also kindly come back to support the contest, they are donating two $50 gift cards. The next prize is something unlike we have ever had before. I have a follower who has a large ranch south of Pagosa. He has 1.75 miles of private riverfront property near where the Navajo and San Juan Rivers meet. He is arranging three one-day fishing trips accompanied by a guide. He told me that the guides love to fish the property because it has not been open to the public for over 12 years! The winners will have until June 15th, 2023 to enjoy their prize.
Cash prizes will be distributed the same way in which the entries were made unless you let me know otherwise. Winners will be contacted via email before I publish the names. The link at the bottom is for Paypal and credit/debit cards. I have also included my Venmo information. If you prefer to send a check, click the blue link to contact me for that information.
Thanks for following and supporting the site!
