Free B-Series, Zephyr, Widow Maker, Silver Fox & Nighthawk kites!


Recommended Posts

Well, there's no need to do any changes to the rules at all...cuz She's HERE! If you was waiting till the last minute then you waited to long. We're figuring out the winners right now and as soon as we have them all set I will let everyone know the time, date, and the lucky new kite flyers! Should be a little later today.

Mom and baby are doing wonderful, they're both fully healthy and my life couldn't be better. Here's a small pic that I took with my phone so the quality isn't that great. I will have more pictures when I get my camera back.

Thank you everyone from the bottom of my heart for participating in this contest. I am happy that we are going to be able to get these kites out for Christmas. Watch for the winners!!!

Closing this topic, just to avoid confusion.

So happy 6th birthday, Geez I did not see the beginning date,

This post is from September 22nd, 2007, so don't get your hopes up too high. Pregnancies generally don't last seven years.

I would like to extend a special thank you to John B for giving me the opportunity to share this contest with all of the Kitelife Forum users. Without his permission and help this contest would not have been possible. I would also like to thank all the participants for making this contest fun for everyone. I had a wonderful time running the contest and hope that all of you had a fun time being in it.

As said earlier, Joni arrived 100% healthy and strong. How healthy? 8 lbs, 8 oz healthy :kid_drool: Mountain View hospital put down the official time of birth at 7:31 AM, December 9th 2007.

SOOOOOO, I get to dance around with glee knowing that I have a beautiful new daughter and as said, instead of handing out cigars.....LETS HAND OUT SOME KITES!

I used a very complicated method of calculating the times (I counted the hours on the clock from the time of birth to the closest guesses to that time) and this is what I have come up with.

5TH Place winner of the awesome Nighthawk kite from Premier....

MtnFlyer with a guess of Dec 11th, 10:00 am.

Missed the exact time by 50 hrs, 29 minutes.

4TH Place winner of the Silver Fox 2.3 from Flying Wings....

Dwayne with a guess of Dec 7th, 9:00 am.

Missed the exact time by 46 hrs, 31 minutes.

3RD Place winner of the beautiful Zephyr from Prism Kites....

Kite Dog with a guess of Dec 10th, 1:00 pm.

Missed the exact time by 29 hrs, 29 minutes.

2ND Place winner of the coveted Barassi B-Series Revolution Kite Package....

Big Bri with a guess of Dec 10th, 10:45 am.

Missed the exact time by 27 hrs, 14 minutes.

And the GRAND PRIZE winner of the beautiful Widow Maker from Skyburner Kites is..........

Mikenchico with a guess of Dec 8th, 5:15pm.

Missed the exact time by only 14 hrs, 16 minutes.

Toyguy missed getting in at 5th place by only 1 hr and 22 minutes. The next closest was Belar at 76 hours 39 minutes. Close one for sure! Toyguy was also the first one to post a guess, that's kinda impressive. :P

Congratulations Kent and family, welcome to the kite clan Joni!

Per the contest rules, as Kent listed them...

"Bonus Prize!!!

"6) Bonus Prize. If the winner of any one of the prizes is also a Kitelife Subscriber, that winner will win the bonus prize along with their regular prize. Only one bonus prize is available and will first be awarded to the first place winner if they are a current Kitelife Subscriber.

I have no record of Mikeinchico being a subscriber... If any of the listings above are inaccurate, please let me know asap and I'll make sure Kent has the correct info. :sign_kitelife:

Read the rules carefully... Not all are eligible for the bonus prize, but I have listed all top five for posterity.

I'm still verifying Big Bri's subscribership (see your PM Brian) - but if I've got it right, nice haul Brian, congratulations... I'll get your subscriber graphic added as soon as you respond to my PM, confirming the PayPal account your signed up to Kitelife with... Sorry I didn't catch that and add it sooner.

I demand a recount. She was too early. Can you please put her back in and let her try again. :sign_kitelife:

As soon as I thought of this it remended me of my crew mate from the Ambulance Service. I stopped the Ambulance one night to help him help a lady to deliver her little Girl. As I was getting in I saw her with her hands between her legs. He said gently "it's no good my lovely, you wont push it back in" all went welland we carried on to Hospital.

Kent I am SO glad all went well for all 3 of you. And thank you SO much for the fun of this competition. And also thank you in a strange way (due to the silly working of my mind) for reminding me of my crew mate.

A big CONGRATULATIONS to your family and all the lucky winners.

:) Hey, wait a goll-darn minute here!

My time was just 6 hrs 54 minutes post-partum. I guessed girl, 7 lb 8 oz. I think I get something really swell too ;)

Oh - wait - that was my posting time, not my selected time :) It would have been creepy to win with a post entered after the blessed event. :)

And weight was off by a pound. We'll have to see about medical researcher, and soccer star prediction. ;)

So, another congratulations to your family. And thanks very much for the contest - a wonderfully creative way to share your blessing with friends.

(And congratulations to the winners - ;) )

Kent and Mrs. Kent,

Congratulations on Joni!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was just thinking the timing was just about perfect.. Late enough after Thanksgiving and early enough for Mom to enjoy Christmas. Just wonderful!!!!!

For my family, in 16 days we go in for the first ultra-sound and we can't wait to find out the baby's gender! My wife is hoping for a daughter this time. :)

Again, congratulations on the baby! :)
