Wedding Giveaway

Postby roncar » Wed Apr 24, 2013 4:56 pm



My oldest daughter is getting married and has entered a contest for the whole thing to be paid for. Much more wedding than I could ever do for her.

Anyone who has a few minutes, I'd appreciate you taking the time to register and vote for her and her soon to be hubby (Ryan and Amanda.) You can vote once per day till May 3rd.

They have worked their way up to 5th position but need to be in the top 3 to qualify for the grand prize. I need help from my on-line GoldWing friends. 2 more positions and 8 days to go. We CAN do this. :)

Thanks,

Ron

BTW: family and friends can vote too, just need a unique email address to register. ;)

Still in 5th. I was told they were briefly in 4th last night, but I didn't see it.

To all that registered, please keep those votes coming (one per day.)

To those that haven't registered, please do and vote every day.

To everybody, please spread the word.

We can do this. Thanks, Ron

Spent most of the afternoon in 4th before dropping back to 5th.

Looks like 4th will be a tough battle and I suspect 3rd will be tougher.

We can do this but it's getting tougher and barely over a week to go. Thanks, Ron (Ryan and Amanda)

Well they managed to regain the 4th position and 2nd and 3rd just swapped places. Going to be a hard climb into the top three.

Voting ends one week from today and the weekend will be a perfect time to gain (or lose) positions with people getting lax in voting. Please continue to vote through the weekend.

Holding steady at 4th place. 2nd and 3rd keep swapping back and forth, so they are close to each other. No idea of the spread between 3rd and my daughters current position of 4th, but every vote is needed.

Voting ends this coming Friday (6 days) and the weekend will be a perfect time to gain (or lose) ground. Please continue to vote through the weekend.

Please keep those votes coming and vote every day.

Six days to go. Thanks, Ron (Ryan & Amanda)

Have managed to get into the top three!

I suspect 2nd, 3rd, and 4th are very close. Voting ends this coming Friday, 5 short days from now.

Please keep those votes coming and vote every day. Getting there is half the battle. Staying there is another battle altogether.

Thanks everyone, You are making a difference.

It doesnt allow us foreigners to vote, otherwise I would have helped the worthy cause. Us Ozzies have a saying: "Vote early, and vote often." It used to work at State and Federal elections, but they have got smarter about recording your attendance. Bloody computers!

They have held 2nd place for the last 24 hours.

I suspect 2nd, 3rd, and 4th are very close. Voting ends this coming Friday, 4+ short days from now.

Please keep those votes coming and vote every day. EVERY VOTE COUNTS!

That's odd. They don't say anything about that in the rules.
Visitors to the Website will be given the opportunity to vote on the Finalist Entries during the Contest Submission Period. Anyone may vote, and Entrants (or each member of an Entrant) may vote for their own Entry. Only one vote per day per email address allowed.

UPDATE!

They are now displaying vote totals in REAL time. A long way from first place, and their second place position does not have a demanding lead over third and fourth. We need to step up the pace and every vote counts.

Thanks again to all who have voted and please keep it up and spread the word.

WOW! This is going to be tough. I have no illusions of displacing the first place couple, but we only need to be in the "top 3" to go to the next phase.

We have maintained the number 2 position for ~50 hours now, but it's close. The top 4 positions have received 226 to 257 votes each over the last 24 hours and the point spread between 2nd and 4th is only 127.

Please keep those votes coming and vote every day. Only ~86 hours left.

Thank you, thank you, thank you,

Ron (Ryan & Amanda)

Well they turned off the total votes display so we're blind again, except for placement. Last I saw of the total votes, it's still a close contest and probably will continue to be right down to the end.

Ryan & Amanda are still in second, but keeping it is going to be tough. Please keep those votes coming and only ~62 more hours left.

Thank You for your support, they wouldn't be where they are without you.

Spent most of this morning in 3rd, but as of right now back in 2nd. It's an extremely close contest in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places, and I expect to see more movement as votes are cast right down to the end of the contest tomorrow night.

Please keep those votes coming and there is only ~40 more hours left.

Thank You for your support, they wouldn't be where they are without you.

On a side note, comments in the contest are not required, but the wife reads them and I get "brownie points" when the forum is mentioned. She thinks I spend too much time on forums.

Only a little over 26 hours to go. They are still in 2nd, but as I woke this morning to them in 3rd, I know the votes are close.

If you haven't voted today, Please do so before midnight eastern time so you can get another vote in tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone who has voted. It has not gone unnoticed.

Only 16 hours to go. Been in 3rd for the last 8 hours or so. I know the votes on 2nd and 3rd are close and the current 2nd place couple seem to pull ahead in the last few minutes of the day for the last couple of nights. Not being able to see the votes, I suspect they have a few more votes daily and many are posted in the last few hours of the night.

Not being able to see the votes, I have no idea how far the 4th place couple are trailing, but they were close when the votes were visible earlier in the week.

Keep them votes coming. If you haven't registered and voted, please do so as EVERY vote counts at this point.

Thanks for your support,

Ron (Ryan & Amanda)

Well it looks like they made it through that part, ending in 3rd. Thanks everyone and Amanda asked me to pass this along:

Thank you so much to everybody that has supported us and voted everyday for us. We are so thankful and humbled at the amount of support we received through this process.
All your hard work paid off!!! We ended up making it in the top 3. Now just gotta wait until May 10th for David Tutera to announce the winner :-)


Thanks again,
Ron
