Karma: Spreading Kite Love (2/14/18)

Recommended Posts

Alright Karma friends, in order to celebrate Valentine's Day in KiteLife fashion, this drawing is going to spread some kite love.  The lucky winner will get a $40 gift certificate from the kite shop of their choice (spreading the love to the folks that feed our need) and a 1 year subscription to KiteLife, either a renewal or a new subscription for the winner or gifted to a friend (gotta send some love to @John Barresi who makes all of this possible).  

PAY CLOSE ATTENTION, BECAUSE I'M THROWING IN AN ENTRY TWIST!!!!

To enter post "I'm in" or some variant thereof PLUS tell me why you love kites.  

The RNG is going to choose the winner at some point on Valentine's day and I'll accept entries right up until the drawing.

+++++++

Some rules and guidelines:

Don’t play unless you’re willing to put up a prize and ship it to whoever wins.

Shipping is paid by the original poster, the winner pays nothing. Be prepared to ship your prize anywhere in the lower 48 US States. Sorry, but due to shipping costs, we really have to limit this to the lower 48 US States.

RULE CHANGE (7/31/2014): Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize.

You can choose the length of the giveaway, but keep it between 1 and 2 weeks.

Try to ship the prize promptly. You should be able to ship it within a week, but if you can’t, PM the winner and let them know. Sometimes life gets in the way! This whole thing works on the honor system so if there are any problems shipping or receiving a prize, it needs to be worked out between the two parties. Don’t forget…Karma!

This isn’t a competition, but feel free to be generous! If you can only put up a hat, or a tail for a stunt kite, great! If you have something in your kite bag that you never fly and would be willing to ship, that’s great too. Either way, the people that join to win it will appreciate it.

When you receive your prize, post a thank you to the thread where you won it. 

The thread will be locked after that point so the new **KARMA** stays above it.

Good luck, and have fun!

I’m in. As for the love, the sheer variety of flying and building is a lot of it , but the community is the best part. You meet the nicest people at the end of kite lines [emoji39]

No need for a drawing with only 1 entrant. Thank you, @Ca Ike for not leaving my drawing without anyone in. Send me a pm with your address and favorite kite shop and I'll get your gift certificate taken care of. Also let me know if you want the subscription for yourself or if you want to gift it and I'll get that straightened out with @John Barresi

Wow! I think that's a first. Such a great prize should have drawn more participants. Congratulations @Ca Ike on the win. Most of the time people pray for this kind of odds.

Wow haven’t checked in since I entered. Surprised no one else entered with such a good prize up for grabs. Guess no one else loves kites [emoji23]. Pm sent. Now I have to go through my bag to pick what I’m going to put up. Stay tuned.

I love kites, but I don't have anything I could bear to put up.  I think it was brilliant to offer the $72 prize (shop money plus subscription) as their karma prize. 

I may have to steal that idea with a future karma drawing when I have cash but no prize.

      I have a nice quantum for drawing this time around . No lines or bag will be included.
      This drawing will end on at 7pm PST 7/12/2016
      It will be drawn via RNG 

      If you are a KiteLife forum member from the US or Canada, you are eligible to enter. You do not have to be a paid subscriber. 
      Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost.
      The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize.
      Here is the link to the original Rules and Guidelines thread: http://kitelife.com/forum/topic/5426-rules-and-guidelines-please-read/
      The mechanism for the drawing itself is entirely at the discretion of the person offering the prize. In the past, entry number has been determined either by order of entry or by the post number in which the member declares entry into the drawing. The drawings have been performed using the RNG method (http://www.random.org/sequences/) or by choosing the numbers out of a hat. The only requirement is that the method of selection is clearly spelled out in the drawing post.
      Entry into the drawings is done by STARTING a post in the drawing thread with the entry phrase chosen by the drawing host (Traditionally "I'm in", but "I LIKE" has been used as well). In order to remove any confusion or misinterpretation, only entries with posts that START with the phrase will be considered. As with all other KiteLife drawings, bantering is encouraged. This is for fun after all.
