Free yoyo contest! WINNERS ANNOUNCED
« on: August 12, 2011, 07:25:17 AM »
WINNERS!!!
1st. Splitcreek
2nd. LinksLegionaire
3rd. x9x9x9x9x9
4th. sammamishstroke
5th. yoyohw the awesome  

PM ME FOR YOU PRIZE SELECTION! FIRST PLACE GETS TO PICK FIRST, SECOND GETS TO PIC SECOND, ETC








Hey guys! I have just gone through a major collection change, and I noticed that I have way too many yoyos to fit in my case, so I thought about a way to skim down my collection. I decided to do it through the medium of a contest. Since I want someone that is new to have an equal chance of winning as someone that is experienced, the contest will be a trivia. I know, people hate trivias, but it will only be 10 questions. You will send the answers in to me, and I will write your name down on a slip of paper. When the contest deadline is reached, I will pick a few names from the box, and whoever wins, gets to pick from a small selection of yoyos. The selection of yoyo may change, but it is unlikely. The selection of yoyos are:

-Mint RecRev Sharp
-Mint YYF Hectic
-Mint FHZ
-Beat Boss
-NM YYF 44

all these yoyos can be found here, in my BST Thread.
http://www.yoyonation.com/talk/index.php/topic,98271.msg1045878.html#msg1045878
There will be 5 winners, but who evers name I pick out first will get first selection and so on. I ask that your PM have the subject of Trivia Contest and that you have all 10 answers and questions in the PM. Please do not post answers in this thread. Do not send more than 1 PM without a good reason (I will decide if the reason is good or not).

Good luck, and have fun.

Question 1: Who said: "I'm the president of the United States and I'm not going to eat any more broccoli"?

Question 2: What 1995 blockbuster movie was created by the computer animation company Pixar?

Question 3: Who founded the Coca Cola company?

Question 4: What trials, beginning in 1945, spawned the phrase "I was only following orders"?

Question 5: What infamous Beijing square has a name that ironically means "Gate of Heavenly Peace"?

Question 6: I'll Be There For You was the theme to which hit TV show?

Question 7:  What Olympic event is about to start when a jury director orders, "En garde"?

Question 8: The rapid flashing of what cartoon sent 618 Japanese children to hospitals with nausea and seizures?

Question 9: What name is given to the methods for making an aircraft hard to detect?

Question 10: What was the name of the Disney cartoon character who sang "I've Got No Strings?

Aww, I came in here looking for a contest, but it's just a drawing. Never mind.

For free yoyos, I would have thought that the questions would be harder.  This is basically a 'let's see who can use Google' contest.

I was going to say something about that. But figured Swat probably knows this. I guess it let's everyone have an equal chance.

It's a google scavenger hunt
I enjoyed a poptart, but instantly regretted eating the whole box.

I'm pretty sure every thread is the right thread for that.

Yeah, I know the questions are kinda easy. I was inspired by the thread where people were giving away free yoyos, so I thought I would do something like that, but you had to put in a litttle effort to get the yoyo. I wasn't going to give the yoo to a random person who couldn't spend about 10 minutes on google

I would enter this conest, but I hope that instead these yoyos will go to a person who may not have a large collection and stuff like that. Its really great of you to do this give away, thanks for benifitting the community and giving people the chance to win some free throws. Its really generous of you.
I'm pretty impressed by anyone who can look at a drawing and decide how well the yoyo will play.
