We previously announced the winners of our Snow Dance Video Contest as we posted the top three videos submitted and added that fact to an afternoon update. We waited until this morning (Tuesday) to call our winners and when I got Tom Curley on the phone he quickly stated, "You guys could probably hear my daughter scream last night when we checked out the website and saw that you had picked us."
Tom’s daughter "Tina" was his dancing partner for the video and he said that upon hearing the news that they had won that both his wife and daughter began screaming. It was really no contest and if this was a heavy weight boxing match they would have won in a first round knock out! Tom shared that they were off work the Friday after Thanksgiving and went to the beach and shot the video. They purchase the karaoke version of "Let it Snow" from iTunes and then rewrote the words to the song to make it appropriate for the contest. Tom said he was up until 1am or so putting the video together.
Tom added, "We put a lot into it and were hoping that we’d win because we if we were going to make it up to North Carolina to ski this season we knew we were going to need a little help."
I don’t think they needed any help because they earned the win with some great planning, great dancing, great lyrics, great singing and an effort that received "TENS" across the board from all of us in the office that viewed the top entries.
For their efforts, the Curleys have won a FREE SKI VACATION GETAWAY that will include a free three night stay in the gorgeous Bokolomo Cabin in Blowing Rock on January 28, 29 and 30th. You can see that cabin rental (thanks to Mike Graham and the crew at Wits End Rentals in Blowing Rock) by clicking here> Blowing Rock Vacation Cabins and as you’ll see this fine place has a pool table, game room, two fireplaces and outdoor hot tub designed into the rock out croppings and more. They will also receive 6 FREE LIFT PASSES to ski free at Appalachian Ski Mountain thanks to Brad Moretz and his crew at Appalachian.
