Contest Winners Announced!

We just contacted Brian Miller of Cayce, South Carolina and he is the winner of our Meadowbrook Inn, Appalachian Ski Mountain Vacation getaway! That sweet vacation included a sweet King Suite, dining up to $100, free rentals and skiing at Appalachian Ski Mountain. Brain was stoked and told us that he’s be making the trip sometime in February.  Thanks to Mr. G and the staff at Meadowbrook Inn in Blowing Rock for that great getaway.

THEN, we contacted Henry Colina of Miami, Florida to tell him that HE was the winner of TRIP FIVE! Henry and his wife will be visiting North Carolina for the first time, according to Mr. Colina. He will be skiing free at Hawksnest and staying at The Hidden Valley Motel. Thanks to them and 1st Tracks Ski and Snowboard shop in Boone for the free rentals.

…as if that wasn’t enough…we then awarded Denise Miller of Mount Juliet, TN free skiing at The Homestead Resort in Virginia and nice accommodations at The Vine Cottage Inn, within walking distance of the resort.

That makes SIX vacations that we have given away to date.  We have posted all of the winners on the contest page.  If you didn’t win this time, there’s plenty more and we’re still working on adding some additional vacation giveaways to The Mast Farm Inn and more…so if you haven’t entered, be sure to!

Mr. Colina was pretty cool. He asked, "How do you guys do this? You mean there’s no meetings we have to attend?  Just go and it’s free!?!"  That is correct Mr. Colina.  No strings, no meetings, no nothing.  Just come have fun!

We do want to thank our sponsors and participants in all of these trips.  Without them, we couldn’t pull it off!
