I've been getting some feedback and questions about this Giveaway which I've addressed on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/spider-firearms and Ill post this here too.
Q) Why do we have to send an email to enter?
A) The reason for the entry email is so that I have a uniform method of processing these entries. It would be impossible to track down all of the posts and topics so by having you send a link in an email funnels this down to a single format for processing.
Q) How does the entry and drawing work?
A) I save the email and give it a unique name which are the numbers on a typical raffle ticket. The ticket gets dropped into a sealed bucket that has a tiny opening just big enough for the ticket to slip though. On the day of the drawing we will shake, flip and roll the bucket to ensure that the tickets are well mixed. Then a random person present at the drawing event will blindly draw one ticket and that will be the winner. Then I can go back and lookup the ticket number and match it to the email so that contact can be made with the winner.
Q) Do I have to send my name, address and phone number with the entry?
A) That stipulation in the rules was to ensure we make contact with the winner. If you chose to provide only your email, this will be my only means of contacting you if you happen to win. If you are cool with that then I am cool with that.
Q) What email address should entries be sent to?
A) Entries should be sent to our normal business email address firstname.lastname@example.org which is checked several times a day.
Its also the same address listed on our website www.ferret50.com
