After nearly 200 entries, dozens of comments, and a few weak attempts at bribery, The Morning Fresh’s first ever giveaway has officially ended – and the winners have been selected by Rafflecopter. So who won the climbing swag giveaway? The winners are:
Bob Rosenbaum and Kam Altar!
Bob’s grand prize winnings come with a funny little story. Mr. Rosenbaum is a regular climber at Tallahassee Rock Gym, and has a bit of a playful rivalry going with his two buddies, Dakota and Charlie. Determined not to let Bob win, Dakota put a lot of effort into tweeting, ‘liking’, and commenting – but he forgot to enter himself in the official Rafflecopter entry form! I knew he would be enraged if Bob won, so when “Bob C. Rosenbaum” popped up as the first winner for the giveaway – I nearly died laughing. Congrats, Bob!
Luckily for me, Bob happened to be at the Tallahassee Rock Gym‘s 17th birthday potluck and grill-out we hosted yesterday, so he collected his winnings in person – a blue Metolius chalk bucket filled with stickers and chalk, and a $25 gift certificate to the rock gym. As for Kam, she’ll be receiving a package with a sweet Stonelick chalk bucket, some Climb On! lip balm, and lots of climbing stickers. Looks like you won’t have to be sharing chalk with your boyfriend anymore, Kam!
A huge thank you to everyone who entered – I truly appreciate your contributions and comments. Don’t worry if you didn’t win – I’ve got a great hydration pack giveaway coming up in the next few weeks! Stay tuned for more details, and keep on adventuring.
