I am happy to announce that GasSavers will give one lucky person a new Scangauge or a SuperMID (or the equivilant in gas cards) to the winner of this contest.
What is the contest? How do you win?
The objective of this contest is to advertise for GasSavers. Every time you advertise for GasSavers (in any way) you are one step closer to getting that first place prize. If you make a blog post, put a link to GasSavers in your signature on other forums, put a GasSavers sticker on your car, etc. please keep a record of it. The person who has done the most, and who has been the most creative will win the first prize!
How do you prove what you've done?
For every time you advertise GasSavers on the internet (links to the homepage are the best) you will need to save the link. If the judges click on the links and your contribution is not there, it will not count. If you use GasSavers stickers, license plate frames, etc, you must take a picture. If you manage to get GasSavers in your local newspaper, on the radio, etc., you must provide either a recording or a copy of the newspaper, etc.
Those interested in participating will receive a private message with an email address. You will send all of your submissions to that email address. If you have a physical item to submit (audio recording, newspaper, etc.) an address will be given to you to mail the item.
Who is judging the contest?
The contest will be judged by myself and Joe Gardner, the administrator of www.bikeforums.net. Judging will be based on creativity, uniqueness, and the number of times you've advertised for GasSavers.
What are the prizes?
1st place (one winner) - Your choice of one of the following four items:
A new Scangauge II
A new SuperMID
A $160 USD Gas Card at the gas station of your choice (nothing obscure please)
the ability to upgrade 8 fellow GasSavers memberships to Red Stars.
2nd place (two winners) - your choice of the following:
A $20 Gas Card
An upgraded membership (Red Star)
The gift of an upgraded membership to the GasSavers member of your choice.
When is the deadline?
