    We had so much fun last week, so this week, we’re running another contest on Bedbugger!

    The lucky winner will get one Packtite. (You can read about Packtites here.)

    Bedbugger Forums user John Furman, of pest control firm Boot-a-Pest in New York (also known on the site under his handle KillerQueen) is generously donating the prize.

    I (site admin, nobugsonme) will select the winner using the random number generator at random.org, to avoid bias.

    How to enter: leave a single comment in this thread. The first line in the post should be a number. The first person will write a "1", the second person to post will write a "2" and so on, chronologically.

    Comments not starting with a number on the first line will not count as entries. Comments starting with random numbers (not following in chronological order) will be deleted and will not count as entries. Please do not enter the contest more than once, or use multiple accounts to enter.

    After the number, you may hit the "return" key and write any other message you like (but please begin on a new line in the post, so others can easily see your number). You may also post other comments without numbers in addition to your one, single contest entry.

    (Please keep discussion limited to the contest and any questions you may have. If you want to discuss KillerQueen's work, or other topics, please do so in another forum thread.)

    You need to register for the site and login in order to leave a comment on this thread. (The blog end of Bedbugger and the Forums share user information so if you have commented on the blog in the past, you do not need to start a separate Forums account.)

    (We can ship the prize to residents of USA only this time! Packtites are not for sale in Canada yet, unfortunately.* Void where prohibited.)

    The winner will be chosen randomly from entries received before 10 p.m. EST on Thursday 1/14/2010.

    I (nobugsonme) will then email the winner at the email in his/her site profile.**

    If you win, you will have 48 hours to respond to my email, giving me permission to forward your email address to John Furman; you can then directly give him your name and address for shipping, and he will be responsible for providing and shipping your prize to you. If you don’t respond within 48 hours, or your email address bounces back, I will use the same methods to choose an alternate winner.

    We will announce the winner’s username, but John promises not to share your real name or address with anyone else. (Obviously, please do not use your real name as your username).

    I ask that you please do not enter the contest if you work in the pest management, pest detection, or pest product business. Please do not use multiple accounts to enter the contest. (It’s the honor system! Please be honorable!)

    Disclaimer: we’re doing this for fun and we reserve the right to change anything if we have to – but be assured we really do want to give away this prize!

    Many thanks to John Furman of Boot-a-Pest (a.k.a. KillerQueen) for donating the prize!

    Good luck to everyone!

    ———————————————————————–

    * We hope and expect Packtites will be for sale in Canada soon. We also expect to be running more contests in future, so residents of other areas around the world, we hope to have a contest which you can enter, soon. Note: if you are in Canada and want to ship your prize to someone in the USA, this is totally acceptable!

    **Please check now to make sure you have a working email address in your profile; in the forums, click “View Your Profile” in the right sidebar. Then click "Edit" in the profile (it's on the right, scroll down a bit.) If you change anything, be sure to save the changes.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Ahem.

    If I give an address to relatives of mine in the U.S. where it could be sent, can I still be entered even though I'm in Canada?

    If not, just delete this post please.

    I've been putting off investing a packtite (after spending so much on bags, a steamer, laundry, etc.) but I can't resist the chance to get one for free
    Thanks!

    Louise, I conferred with KillerQueen and added the following to the post:

    Note: if you are in Canada and want to ship your prize to someone in the USA, this is totally acceptable!

    The rules said we could only ship to the USA. Where you actually live is not really an issue.

    The winner will be chosen randomly from entries received before 10 p.m. EST on Thursday 1/14/2010.

    It's now 10:03pm. Looks like I have a 1 in 32 chance. Much better chances than the lottery
