Several weeks ago our VBS blog guru, Katie, invited our faithful readers to become our guests at one of five VBS Previews being held in January and February. Readers were asked to respond with short statements explaining why they would like to attend.
As promised, we have randomly chosen someone for each of the five locations. And the winners are: Dakota Martin for Ridgecrest, January 11-12; Joyce C. for Fort Worth, January 18-19; Tina Spencer for Nashville 1, January 31 - February 1; Myra Elder for Nashville 2, February 1-2; and Dana Pendarvis for Kissimmee, February 8-9.
Congratulations to each of you! We are truly happy to have you joining us for Preview 2013. It is going to be a colossal experience!
Each of you are invited to bring one additional guest at no charge. To register for the event please contact me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will need your name, address, e-mail address, and phone number. I will need the same information for your friend.
As stated in the original blog post, this free offer covers event registration only and does not include travel, housing, or meals. If you have already registered for one of the events we can not refund your registration fee, but we can apply your free spot to a friend of your choice who has not already registered.
If your name has not already been mentioned hold on. The excitement is just beginning!
Sixty-two people responded, and each gave a great reason why he or she should be chosen. In fact, the submissions were so good we decided just this morning to name everyone a winner!
