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!
It's high time Team KiteLife had our own logo...
To that end, I'm officially opening up a new logo contest and giving away some cool stuff to whoever submits the winner!
My teammates @Flight Risk (Brett), @mystainedskin (Scott) and @windpoacher (Eli) will also be reviewing and commenting.
Prizes (goes to one winner):
5 year KiteLife subscription (new or renewal - $164.75 value)
B2 sail (lightly used, no frame - $199 value)
That's right, over $360 in prizes will go to one lucky winner!
Guidelines, art ideas:
Aesthetic style should be sporty, or a little edgy
Does not need to resemble the main KiteLife logo
Include 4 pilot silhouettes (quad / dual / quad / dual)
No actual kites in the art, just pilots, text and... ?
Does not need URL in the logo (will add as needed)
1x1 (square/round) or 3x2 proportions (like a business card)
4 color maximum
Useful but not required:
Vector art (like Adobe Illustrator)
Both light and dark background versions
For some inspiration, you can look at our existing web presence:
How to start? Easy!
Just upload your design for review here in this topic, can be fancy art or even a photo of a napkin sketch, although "ready to print" type art will naturally get the most attention.
There is no deadline for this drawing, it will run until we select a winner.
Thanks in advance, can't wait to see what all you creative folks come up with!
Well....a lot of you have probably heard the news. For those that have not..what better place than here.
It is official!
A new pack of pilots forming a team of which the likes have never been seen!
Be sure to stop by the FB page and show us some love if you have not already. https://www.facebook.com/teamkitelife/?fref=ts
