$50 worth of juice orders from any vendor (or combination of vendors) of your choice.
However, all shipping charges will be paid from the $50 prize amount.
The duration of the contest
There will be a new winner every two-week contest period until I decide to discontinue for some reason.
Who is eligible
The contest is open to members who have been here six months or less as of the beginning of a given contest period.
So if a contest period starts on any given day in January then anyone with a Join Date of August or later will be eligible.
The contest is open to members who have not yet won in any of the previous two-week contest periods.
In other words, once you win, you are no longer eligible for future contest periods.
How to play
There will be seven questions during each two-week contest period.
The date and time of the next question to be answered will be posted in this thread.
The first person to correctly answer that question will get one point.
The person with the most points at the end of each two week contest period will be the winner for that contest period.
In the case of a tie, a tiebreaker question will be asked, which will probably be harder than the other questions.
Where the questions will come from
The questions will be based on threads from the "Legislative News" and the "Media and General News" subforums.
There may, however, also be some questions related to CASAA (and information on their website) as well.
And finally, there may also be questions related to the information presented in the first contest period.
That information is summarized in the post that follows this one.
If you post an answer that does not originate from one of the above places, it will not be accepted.
That's because this is not intended to be a Google scavenger hunt.
When the contest begins
This contest period will begin on Thursday, January 19th at 11am Pacific Time.
The first question will be asked at that time, and the date and time of the next question will also be posted.
The idea is to make people aware of the issues we face as vapers, and to show them that we can make a difference.
Hopefully many new members will be encouraged to get involved, at the very time they are the most enthusiastic!
And here is a little hint
The more you keep up with the News subforums, the more likely you will be to win eventually.
I will be working towards coming up with questions that can be answered fairly quickly if you already know where to look.
As noted previously, this isn't intended to be like a scavenger hunt, but more like a way to encourage ongoing involvement.
One final note
If this contest doesn't sound like your kind of thing, that's okay.
But if EVERY VAPER would read the next post, then this whole contest idea will have been worth it.
So please, take some time when you can and read it through.
It contains almost all the information a vaper needs to know about the issues we face.
Whether or not you have the time or resources to help, at least the information will help you answer questions.
And we all know we get lots of questions!!
